-- Psylocke about the humans

Psylocke was a mutant telepath, and a member of Callisto's Omega Gang, a group of mutant outcasts based in an underground network in the United States.

When the mutant cure was created, Psylocke and the Omegas protested, saying that there was nothing wrong with mutants and therefore, nothing to cure. Callisto decided to join Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants. The rest of her group, which included Psylocke, Quill, and Arclight, followed, and became leading members of the Brotherhood.

Psylocke and the Omegas fought in the battle on Alcatraz Island, where she, Quill, and Arclight entered Worthington Labs while the rest of the mutants fought outside. Psylocke captured Warren Worthington, and attempted to kill him by throwing him off a balcony, but his son saved him before he could hit the ground. When Phoenix began to destroy Worthington Labs with her disintegration wave, Psylocke tried to escape the building but was seemingly killed along with her teammates.[1]

According to screenwriter Zack Penn, "There was some switching of character names later in production, and I'm not exactly sure how Psylocke got thrown into the mix." So it is assumed by fans that the character was intended to be Revanche and could be called Revanche in later movies.
