About this deal

We're basically given two bonus Claremont X-Men annuals (new Mutants #2 and Uncanny X-Men #11) to round out this huge volume, which are both excellent stories but fairly inessential when it comes to the the Captain himself. Lew Stringer has shared the covers for the Captain Britain Omnibus, coming in October, plus a list of the comics it reprints. Sep 22, 2020Yeah I remember seeing at least one issue of Marvel Super-Heroes in the US series, now it doesn't seem to be available at all?

Was the Omniversal Majestrix; overseer of the Captain Britain Corps. Since losing that position she has stayed with the Corps. Get the other half of the Pendragon series. #10 - 18 completes the story and is so good, its a crime other people haven't had the chance to read.After her body was shattered in X of Swords, brother Jamie created a new body for her. With the help of Kwannon, her essence was integrated into the new body and she was made whole (yet again).

Died years before the Cross-Time Caper during which his costume was handed over to Earth-616's Captain Britain. He was a member of an alternative Excalibur. After dying, he returned briefly as a reanimated corpse [30] Moore followers should certainly include it in their reading. Many of the themes of 'V for Vendetta' (1988-1989) and perhaps, Americanised, 'Watchmen' (1986-1987) are to be found in his Captain Britain work from 1982-1984.X-Men Annual #11. The whole tempted by their greatest desire trope gets old, and I’m really not convinced by some of these “desires”. Nonetheless, this is a surprisingly good story with a great ending [6+/10].

From a British perspective, I suppose we can see 'Captain Britain' as a noble failure and, if we were sour, as both the product and victim of American cultural colonialism. But the core story line stands and could even have future legs under a serious creative hand who could escape the 'woke'. When that arc is over, Budiansky is replaced by Larry Lieber, and they have Captain Britain face off against some odd foes, including a robotic Loch Ness monster and a baron who is both a vampire and a werewolf. After that, he’s lured to an island by a villain named Doctor Claw, and then faces off against an assassin called Slaymaster who’s trying to collect a whole bunch of valuables, including a mint copy of Spider-Man #1. Lord Hawk does seem like he fits right in with Captain Britain’s lame rogues gallery, but I have to admit that I really like him as a villain. He’s just so much more interesting than anyone else we’ve seen up to this point (aside from the Red Skull, who’s admittedly a classic Marvel villain). I doubt we’ll ever see Lord Hawk on the big screen, but the concept is so absurd that I can’t help but love it.Be all that as it may, although an incomplete representation of Britain's answer to Captain America, this Omnibus has enough to provide sufficient lore, to show a distinctive British tone to the hero and to mark out the character as Marvel UK rather than Marvel stateside. Yes, I think there were! I’ve seen a bit of online debate about which is the most comprehensive edition to get. I think there was an earlier edition that included a couple of issues of Captain America (#305-306) co-starring our Captain which are missing from this one.
