    https://www.cbr.com/marvel-comics-th...uperhero-team/

    The Union headed by Union Jack. One looks like it could be Lionheart no idea on the other 3.

    The tall one looks like Juggernaut.

    A shame that we’re finally getting a UK team after a long wait and it’s seemingly new characters for the most part? I guess you could say Captain Britain is tied up with Excalibur but I’m sure the rest are free?

    I'm interested, but I would have loved to see some underutilized characters like Kelsey Leigh.

    Well, I assume the middle character is Lionheart... but yeah, definitely a new one if so, not Kelsey, who was blonde. Which means she's worse than underutilised - she just had her codename pinched.

    I’d rather just have a Union Jack series, or more realistically, limited series.

    I remember Paul Grist created Jack Staff after Marvel rejected his Union Jack pitch all those years ago. He probably thought a Union Jack solo mini would be a no-go with US Marvel.

    Yeah, I agree. Marvel doesn't seem to use Marvel UK much at all, save for Captain Britain, so the rest of the team apart from UJ being newbies isn't a surprise.

    This will be his first ever Marvel work, right? Though he's been around since the 1980s, working for the likes of Fleetway (2000AD's owner before Rebellion bought it) and Image.

    I remember that too.
    A shame, though, I think the character has a lot of potential, as a Brit street leveler who’s a legacy character, w. supernatural enemies, who also has all of Europe to play in.

    As I understand attack formation it doesn't look like Union Jack is going to be heading the team there.....

    Whatever became of Brian Braddock? I know that his sister is Captain Britain at the moment, but I am just not interested in Betsy.

    They appear to have pushed him aside in favour of Betsy, who now needs a new identity since Kwannon has taken her 'Psylocke' shtick. I thought they might be moving in that direction when they gave Meggan and him a baby. Very annoying, but US Marvel has rarely done right by Brian so it's not much of a shock.

    Maybe Brian is still active with the Champions of Europe?
