Captain Britain Poster # 1 Alan Davis Technet Crazy Gang Saturnyne Betsy


SKU: 13041 Category:


Jackdaw, Saturnyne, Brian’s sister Betsy aka Psylocke of the X-Men (pre plastic surgery…long story), some members of the Captain Britain Corps, Gatecrashers Technet, Cap’s old foe the Fury and the Crazy Gang! If you don’t know these characters, I pity you! The Captain Britain stories by Claremont, Alan Moore and Alan Davis blew me away when I was a kid! Man did I love these stories! Merlyn changed Captain Britain’s original costume just before he entered the alternate Earth-238, fusing the powers of the Amulet and the Scepter into the new uniform and then later put these powers within Brian himself when he was forced to rebuild Brian following Brian’s death at the hands of the Fury, making the suit a regulatory device for his powers. Eventually, Brian no longer required even the battle-suit for the full use of his powers, as his heritage of being the son of a denizen of the extra-dimensional Otherworld became enough to power him. Brian Braddock has superhuman strength, speed, stamina, durability, reflexes, senses, and the ability to fly at supersonic speeds. He also possesses enhanced perceptions that allow him to be aware of things others may miss (such as objects cloaked by spells of illusion). When he and Meggan destroyed the Otherworld energy matrix at Roma’s prompting, the energies that allowed him to retain his power within the UK without his costume were dissipated. Hence, to retain his powers anywhere on Earth, he must wear the costume at all times. His costume acts as an antenna and battery, allowing him to retain his powers wherever he goes.
