As the Avengers event Time Runs Out becomes one comic closer to Secret Wars, you can read in New Avengers 29 today a clue as to what might have happened to Captain Britain and the Captain Britain Corps, and it’s an interesting one.
Please be aware this article includes spoilers for this week’s New Avengers 29, if you haven’t read the issue yet then do not carry on reading after the picture.
The plot has Mr Fantastic explaining how the Illuminati are trying to prevent the destruction of the Multiverse and how every attempt failed including ” A Multiversal one,” and in just one panel Hickman in New Avengers 29 lets out a clue as to just what fate befell Captain Britain and the Captain Britain Corps.
So the possible destruction of the Captain Britain corps as shown on this future Time Runs Out cover below isn’t due to Captain Britain fighting them as I thought, but instead seems to have been a selfless sacrifice to save the Multiverse.
Now I’m not sure who the fight is against but the New Avengers panel is an interesting clue/pointer as to the fate of the Captain Britain Corps, and to me I’m glad if they have been destroyed that at least they went out fighting the good fight rather than just being dismissed with a stroke of a pen.
Of course Secret Wars is coming and nothing in the current Marvel Universe should be looked upon as being permanent; so the Corps could just as easily be written back into continuity as they were written out.
