    Well we know that Hickman and Howard are working closely together because Apocalypse is going to be a major player in the future.

    TH is just missing out on some story beats that should be given spotlight.

    I get waht she's trying to do but I feel like a better writer would have made this better and more intriguing.

    Wish we had a British writer honestly. They are always good in my opinion. Spurrier, Carey, or Cornell.

    But sticking with this title for Betsy.

    Gotta be honest, I didn't actually realise how much I wanted that until I saw Betsy say "mommy" instead of "mummy" to Shogo. I mean c'mon! I love Betsy's voice here but c'mon...!

    So are we thinking this first arc is basically Betsy coming to terms with being the new Captain Britain.

    I kind of wish she would have some introspection on basically creating a new body for herself out of soul/psychic energy.

    You know that saying that we dont see ourselves how other people percieve us. Or something like that. Whatever.

    I'd love a deep dive in that. Being able to create a body for yourself in the image of what you've always wanted.

    I kind of take this as she got the warrior body during the bodyswap/seigeperilous.

    But now she basically created a completely new body that will function that way she always wanted.

    Oh definitely agree! Like, we need a moment where Betsy really questions what her sense of self is; what speaks to her most now, how is that impacted by the body-swap, and this would actually be a good time to do it! The mantle-change could serve as a great thematic parallel as well; like "Am I just always stepping into other people's identities, or is this me now?"

    To date, BEST issue of this series BY FAR! RICTOR & Apoc in particular, brought with them the WIN!! To the point where Excab finally edges out Mrds & XM, as the better release of the week, IMO. Even the Otherworld stuff seemed to gain some steam, and grab my attention more. Jubes' heartfelt worries over Shogo stuck out to me, coming across as a pretty authentic mother/child dynamic, like they did. We need some progress with that Rogue sitch, tho, stat.

    Definitely agree with ya there; hey thank god for double shipping this month though, eh?

    I've just kinda realised though, I am worried about Shogo as a dragon. Like, not 'cos he's a dragon, just 'cos he's still very much a hapless, innocent baby in mind. Like I can see if he ever gets separated from Jubilee or Betsy even like this it'd be terrifying to think what might happen to him!
