    Launching the first female solo of the Krakoan era, Betsy is charging into 2023 doing things her way. She intends to serve the people and no one else, representing mutantkind in the 616 and across the multiverse. It's up to her to deal with the current mutant-hating government of Britain and rectify the nation's relations with Krakoa. She has her girlfriend by her side, the full support of her family, and the mutant nation behind her.
    (You're too cute for the typo.)

    It's kinda funny Krakoa has a Captain Britain and a Captain Krakoa. It's like America having Captain America but also like Captain Egypt for some reason

    That sort-of happened when the Avengers had both Captain America and a Captain Britain on the roster at the same time. Not that the Avengers are America-specific....but it is where they are usually based, and where most of their members are from.

    Happy New Year to Betsy and her fans !

    (Seeing all those other looks kind of reinforces my belief that her Captain Britain armor isn't her best costume...)

    Your comment made me think of something.

    A poster last year threw out Brian's name as a possibility when we were guessing who Captain Krakoa on the FCBD cover was. Now that we know the initial premise of Betsy's book, that becomes a very interesting suggestion. Britain's government doesn't want a mutant as Captain Britain and Betsy has thrown her middle finger up high at them in response. What if something drastic happens where, for example, mutants are officially exiled from Britain and deported to Krakoa? Or even locked away in prison camps like has happened before, or both. Brian would leave the country with his family (which could explain his expression on the D'Urso variant) and then what if as a big FU to Britain, Krakoa makes him Captain Krakoa? It seems like this CK is going to be on a new unity squad and what better example of unity between mutants and humans than that? The various fanbases would be up in arms and the chaos alone would be amazing. Thoughts?

    Happy New Year Frontier and everyone!

    Same to you all and the rest of the board .

    I'm not sure if Marvel would go that far with their fictional UK though. I mean, I know we're in a franchise not known for trusting in humans or human governments/nations but...

    They kind of hinted at the possibility of things becoming dire for mutants there:

    This was a reality created by Jamie based on Betsy's thoughts and feelings, and she's been known to have precog abilities. But I should say the "magically-controlled government" as the ones influencing them at the moment are mutant-hating jerks.

    Captain America's gone against his country before but it is kinda weird to have a Captain Britain with such divided loyalties to another country

    We'll see how it plays out. Knowing the country is being influenced by villains, Betsy won't stop until they're defeated and then we'll see where she goes from there. I'm hoping she'll then be not so tied to the role and more of a free bird. In the meantime I wanna see her slay some big magical creatures.

    I don't want Betsy to be on the X-Men Vote as an option BUT I do want her to be volunteered by Scott or Jean or just put themselves on the team like Iceman and Magik did.
