So I’ve been covering The Avengers current event, Time Runs Out as Captain Britain was advertised as appearing, and apart from one brief mention Cap appearances so far have been at a minimum. So imagine my surprise when I picked up today’s New Avengers 25 and there is Captain Britain – at last.
Want to know more continue reading after the picture – beware the post contains spoilers for this weeks New Avengers 25.
This week Hickman finally lets us in on the fate of the Illuminati of which Captain Britain was shown to be a member when Time Runs Out debuted, and things are not looking good for them especially Cap.
So there seems to be no Captain Britain Corps left, and what happened to Cap’s eye and just what does that patch conceal?
Even worse everyone – except the Hulk seems to have beards!
OK it’s hard to tell if Beast has a beard but he does look shaggy.
The Illuminati are in a bad shape and the comic reveals they have their backs against the wall and are seemingly considering desperate measures to survive; Hickman has again done a fine job scripting a tense story which I will keep on advising folk to check out. Walker draws a suitably haggard Captain Britain and fans are going to be left guessing the fate of his eye and every other Captain Britain in the multiverse.
So if you like Cap crossovers I would say keep picking up Time Runs Out, and keep following the Captain Britain Blog for future Cap crossover developments.
