Pretty much destroyed any faith I had in Remender as to his handling of the character.
    Ah! The fine work of Scott Lobdell, one of the worst (and most boring) writers to ever grace comics!

    I've just recently discovered Captain Britain- CB & the MI13 is so awesome and I'm sad it isn't longer, but his appearance in Secret Avengers so far has seemed off. I wasn't sure if I had missed a lot of his story in the interim to turn him into this character (and Beast of all people ripping on him like that was pretty awful), but it seems like this is just mostly out of character? I'm hoping that Gillen will do him justice in the upcoming Journey Into Mystery "Manchester Gods" arc.

    Not that I'm saying that Captain Britain is roguishly lovable, you understand.
    The villain from blackpool would be a good choice, after all He is a real man's man ( if you dont watch WWE you wouldnt get the joke)

    But you've got to love William Regal. He's pure stereotype ridiculous. Although I don't think he's had any superb screen time since his team-up days with 'Pirate' Paul Burchill... :)

    How a Captain Britain story failed to grab me, even a little, just shows how I feel about it. On top of the story apart from a few great open panels of Otherworld the art looked rushed and ugly as the series went on.

    My biggest complaint is why was Meggan falling like a love sick puppy into the arms of revenge Kurt? ARRRGGG Why!

    On a positive note I enjoyed the ending. Even if it is a path I would never have wanted Betsy to fully go down, I found it fairly emotional. Shame it took a flat, oddly paced story riddled with odd characterization to get there.

    Still I want to give SA a chance, especially since I have loved the rest of Remeders work.

    It was an... interesting ending. Especially given that Brian is supposed to be immune to Betsy's powers on a genetic level. And Vice Versa... ;)

    I'd even approve of that. He could be like the Guy Gardner of the Captain Britain Corps! :)

    Its bad enough that Beast of all people is giving him the "This is why you suck" speech, but considering that Beast's plan was pretty much doomed to fail the first place ( Cap called it a suicide mission) I dont see why Hank has to make Brian his whipping boy.

    I'm glad that at least somebody on the SA #26 thread has said they found that jarring, and couldn't understand WTF Beast was talking about. Because, again, Remender is basing that logic on like 15 issues of continuity. Not on the other 30+ years of continuity. To most people that WILL make no sense.

    I hope that too. But I just don't know. Glad that you at least giot to first read the character in a more consistently written fashion.

    If you've not read anything of the character before CB & MI:13 you're in for a shock. Aside from that comic, most of his mainstream Marvel appearances show him as something of a stuffy fool. He's not like that in the Alan Moore/Alan Davis run of his own comic from the 80's, which is available in trades and is really good - unfortunately most American writers see the early issues of the comic Excalibur from the 90's as defining his character, which is not kind to him. Who knows how Gillen will portray him in the upcoming Manchester Gods arc if he's featured much at all - is he definitely in it?

    Close to mate.......the last issue of Secret Avengers has really pushed me to the edge......

    Might have to ask Rick Remender on Twitter a question about his characterisation of CB (respectfully of course) in the hope that there might be some light at the end of the tunnel. This is one of the lowest moments of my CB fandom ever........and thats saying a lot!

    Circa late 1980's Ray Winstone. He'd be our Captain Britain, if I were in charge.

    I'm sure there's a light at the and of the tunnel all right, I'm just afraid it's attached to a fast moving freight-train.

    Seriously, I really am sure Remender is giving Brian a hard time as part of his arc, and it's a set-up for him to do something heroic later on - I'm just concerned that the heroic thing might be sacrificing his life, though at this point perhaps that would be for the best. After all the hard work Cornell did with the character, to have him revert to Claremont-type... it's horrible.

    If CB dies I'd be almost glad at this point.

    Yep you're probably right on the 'bring him down to build him up' theme, don't think he is in line to cark it - as Remender has stated theres an arc after this involving CB.

    I'm just at the same point I was back when Kelsey Leigh took over, I was grateful that Brian had effectively been granted an ending......I think we were spoilt by CB&MI13 and just thought that any writer that followed would use this as a springboard. Sad.

    I don't know, maybe Brian is acting like he was years ago after Betsy 'died' because he's just lost Jamie.

    Still no excuse Mr Remender. You make me see sadness.

    And it's not like Merlyn won't just bring him back again, next time a writer decides to bring him back...

    The next time they need someone to act like a dick so that all the other members of whatever team he on can look good.

    Not neccesarily.

    But the odds seem annoyingly high, yes?

    It's kind of funny to think of that article a little while ago listing Captain Britain as potentially one of the breakout stars of 2012. Well, funny in a sad, bitter way.

    At least we got those nice Art Adams covers - I've always loved how he draws CB.
