Flat Out ludicrous is how most people referred to this match.
This should have been the quickest “upset” in the bracket, but unfortunately for all of us it went the opposite way.
Mr. Mxyzptlk squared off against Betsy Braddock, aka Psylocke in this first round Deathmatch.
Psylocke’s ninja skills, psychic knives and telepathy were of no use to her as Mr. M popped in and out of little clouds of smoke all around her. While it should have been simple enough for our heroine to get him to say his name backwards, but between her British accent and her latent Japanese dialect, Mxyzptlk couldn’t understand a word of what she was saying. Ultimately, Betsy collapsed due to exhaustion and being bored to death by a stupid character.
Winner: Mr. Mxyzptlk.
