    It's because of his ability to make a drawing really feel like a real person, and not an idealised posable mannequin; he brings a warmth to his characters, and an ability to convey emotion through...

    That is usually the problem with Davis leaving a title. Excalibur was the same, and the Captain Britain strip in the UK didn't even try to continue once he left.

    That Davis/Farmer art doesn't age - it's still very pretty and easy to follow.

    Well, I'm a pessimist, I'll always assume the worst but hope for the best. I've noticed quite a few readers who aren't very familiar with Dane's history assume he's British, and with a Scottish actor...

    As a Captain Britain fan from the early days, I have more fear than optimism. The Claremont-written Excalibur is largely despised by Captain Britain fans as it turns CB into exactly what he wasn't...

    I think she was last seen in New Excalibur... but as I didn't read that, I've no idea how that ended up. I assume she's still alive out there somewhere.

    Actually, over in the Betsy appreciation thread on the X-boards, I read that Betsy was the older twin, and that she was offered the role of Captain Britain BEFORE Brian, but turned it down. That...

    No, it's a good rant, and we've kept quiet for too long. This just sucks, and sadly that is par for the course when it comes to Brian in US Marvel hands. It makes me want to cry.

    Why the hell are Brian's powers now dependent on the amulet? Every time Brian falls into American hands they take the power out of him in some way. It keeps happening, and I'm sick of it.

    I've not read it yet, but you don't fill me with optimism.:(

    I really don't expect for Brian to be much of a hero in the upcoming arc, or for any of this to be positive for him.

    It was good. The cast is excellent, it looks expensive, and the fact it is taking its time to get into the story is a good thing, imo. People have pointed out that the show has short-changed a lot of...

    They have met several times. Avengers Vol 1 #82 and #111 are two examples I'm aware of, though I'm sure there are more.

    It just comes across as yet another stick for a writer to beat Brian with. He's someone who learned that his father was not even from this Earth, discovered he and his sister are only half-human, is...

    It's bad enough that American writers have written Brian as a dickish caricature since Claremont got a hold of him in Excalibur; now you want him to be racist too? He wasn't supposed to be a punching...

    You might claim she was the best, but you can't claim she was the first - her predecessor on the show, Cathy Gale, was the original leather-clad martial-arts expert.

    Looks epic! The Surfer is one of the few Marvel heroes on Thor's level, and I like the contrast between the sci-fi Surfer and the fantasy Thor.

    For me it's about whether the character is performing the function for which he was created: is he a hero, a stand-in for the reader, someone you aspire to be? Aaron's Thor is not, at least to me....
