Captatin Britain and Psylocke still brother and sister?

#1 Posted by Kid_Omega_Prime (2526 posts) - - Show Bio

Here here is a weird question. Are Captain Britain and Psylocke still brother and sister? I ask this because Psylocke is no longer in her original body she is now in the body of a japanese assassin. So do they still count as brother and sister?

Yes. Shame she doesn't pop up in MI:13 from time to time.

Not biologically, I guess, but they're still the same people.

What a stupid bloody question, just because she's in a different body doesn't mean all those years of being raised as siblings is erased. 
 
This would be like asking an adopted child "but he's not your real brother is he?" 
 
Blood's thicker than water but even family can treat you like crap. There's more to being family than genes

@JediXMan: @thatlad: It may seem like a silly question, but it's still a valid question.  You don't have to be rude about it. 
 
Psylocke is in a different body, but her family is still her family.  She's interacted with her Braddock brothers since the body swap, and they've treated her the same.

Yes they are still family, i refer you to Gmans post of the preview on the next uncanny xforce in which they can be see sitting together chatting. While Betsy body has changed her soul remiasn the same and the Braddocks have been shown to be happy to have her still as a family member.

Also, If you read the early x-men comics, it was stated  that when Spiral switched their bodies she also merged the genetic structures of the two so she still retains some attributes of her original body.  Thats why both Psylocke and Kwannon's sents smelled identical to wolverine, why they have the same powers, and I'm assuming why Psylocke looks like sort of like a mixture of her European and Asian self in some comics (Blue eyes, etc.).

Of course they are, in-fact in the next issue of Uncanny X-Force, Uncanny X-Force #6, Brian guest stars and it seems the two are having some sort of disagreement, maybe Bri finds out about her role in the team...

This a interesting topic. But If I had to say biologically no there not but spirituality they are.

You know I just got a idea. What if Brian never married Maggen and had a relationship with Psylocke insted? Because she is no longer in her original body. Just like Quicksilver and scarlett Witch in the Ultimates.

In X-men issue 32 it was stated that Spiral spliced the genes of both Kwannon and Psylocke along with switcing their bodies.  Therefore both bodies had traits of both Psylocke and Kwannon.  The scanners in the X-men's laboratory confirmed this.  The fact that they both had the same powers, and Psylocke's Eurasion features in some issues also insinuates this in my opinion.  Therefore, even though Psylocke has a significantly different outer appearance, her current body still shares many of the same characteristics of her old body.

Is she currently Asian or British? Just asking because I haven't been reading any comics with her recently.

I don't agree with being rude, but I can understand the frustration. I don't know my biological dad and a couple of years ago my mom weirded out and left the man who's been dad to me since I was four years old. People around town bothered the s*** out of me constantly asking "So, do you ever talk to Steve anymore? " or "So, do you still call him dad? Because you're really not related at all now." Of course he's still my dad, family and biology are two entirely different things.

While I have never had any intrest in incest, I have to be honest & say that I do not have a problem with a willing incest couple, especially in this day were being gay is so excepted.

I think it would have actually been interesting if in, say the Ultimate marvel, or any alt universe, Captain Britain was having sex with Kwannon, weather just free sex, or in a relationship, even with kids, & then Psylocke gets her mind put into the body. It would be a really messed up situation, & I feel better than just the straight up incest that Quicksilver-SW or the Fenris siblings had which seems to have been done mainly for the shock value of it.

Still, imagine if you pleasured yourself to a pic of a body that your sibling takes over. Plus, Psylocke is hot, Kwannon was hot, if they were merged, its still a hot body.

Biology no spiritual yes. I mean if you really think about it were all related according to the bible. Ever human came from Adam and Eve.

I wished that the mind switch between Betsy and Kwannon never happened to begin with. Someday, I hope that Betsy's original body(a timeloop) is returned(with Kwannon's mind inside) so that they can return to their respective bodies. As such, I would like to see Kwannon retain the Psylocke codename while Betsy could get a new code name altogether. Afterall, it was Mojo who named Betsy Psylocke to begin with.....

I'm more curious about the idea of Betsy having a baby. Biologically it would have no relation to the Braddock family...would they try and track down Kwannon's estranged family to let them know her body had a baby?

Technically she could be inseminated with Brian's seed to conceive a child that still retained her own DNA (since he's her twin) while not technically being incestuous. Technically.

That's IF you believe in that book of fables, or any other religious text. We are all related based on DNA, everything from trees, to rabbits, to humans.

Same here. I was a fan for like two seconds. But I want my old Betsy back. Let Kwannon keep the Psylocke Moniker, just give me back Betsy, not this crazy chick.

@thunderscream: ummm... I don't think that would work because after Brian died Merlin brought Brian back with a new more powerful body. Similar to his original but with his captain Britain powers in it. So he would not need the amulet of right or his suit for his powers.

Soooo how does that make any difference? While his resurrection may have been mystical, genetically, he's still Brian Braddock, whereas Betsy's body is genetically that of Kwannon...so if she wanted a child that retained a portion of the Braddock bloodline, she could be inseminated by Brian's seed with the resulting offspring not being the product of incest.

....Mind you...I'm not advocating this...
