TWO CAPTAINS - ONE COUNTRY - AND ONE HELL OF A FIGHT! Britain has a new champion - but don't be mistaken, she's been here for years. Morgan Le Fay is back for vengeance, and Captain Britain is first on her list! But where one captain fails, another may suffice... and Peggy Carter's got a right hook that would inspire the devil herself. Magical machinations and feral fisticuffs abound in Tini Howard and Vasco Georgiev's continuing epic!

    OverallOverall. A solid continuation of the story that kicked off last month. I loved the decision to bring Captain Carter and Lizzie Braddock into the story. As I loved the solo Captain Carter comic series that introduced their characters to us last year. I look forward to seeing how well Captain Carter and Betsy Braddock work together in future issues.

    Rather than getting hung up on its big profile guest star, issue #2 sweeps all that aside to build a mythology all its own. Read Full Review

    When combined with Vasco Georgiev's dynamic and stylish art, this issue officially has me sold on what the book has in store. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Apr 6, 2023

    ‘Betsy Braddock: Captain Britain' #2 ups the number of captains within the series as a fan-favorite multiversal MCU-related British Captain joins the party against Braddock's growing stable of foes. A smooth, gorgeous, and action-packed issue chock full of great character moments while digging even deeper into the British side of Marvel. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - dragoncache Mar 29, 2023

    This previous issue lured me in with a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Now it seems Britannica Rex may not regularly appear in this series. Even the Furiesa combination of Abe Sapien and Chappie-style robot warriorsdon't get much screen time in this issue. Still, I enjoyed meeting new characters and seeing Betsy and Rachel force the legendary Morgan Le Fay to switch tactics. While much shorter than its predecessor, Betsy Braddock: Captain Britain #2 delivers a satisfying story with a uniquely British sensibility. Pair it with a strong cuppa and a Jammy Dodger for maximum enjoyment. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Apr 2, 2023

    The whole multiversal aspect keeps BBCB #2 from being a retread of Excalibur, and overall, this issue is a fun beat 'em up with queer romance, magic, psychic powers, and plenty of intrigue to keep the overall story moving. Read Full Review

    A big improvement in the second issue as the plot kicking into action brings focus to the story and highlights the stronger parts of the book for a fun Captain Carter crossover

    This was better than the first issue, but I'm left a bit perplexed by the need to tie this series to that Captain Carter mini a while back.

    Another solid issue. Furies draped in Union Jack are comedy gold. Truly a British moment.

    A confusing mess of a "story" with characters that feel like they all have the same voice. Some poor examples of dialogue where one character tells another character how amazing they are. Don't tell it, show it. This gets 5/10 because of some decent art by Vasco Georgiev.

    Betsy Braddock: Captain Britain #2 follows a predictable structure that has been used for almost every issue since Excalibur: a villain scheming, Betsy (and now Rachel) foiling her plan, the villain retreating, and a cliffhanger with the villain scheming again. While this structure may work for some readers, it can feel repetitive and formulaic.

    Furthermore, Betsy comes across as an incompetent hero, as Rachel has to coach and mentor her every step of the way. This not only undermines Betsy’s character but also cements Rachel’s position as the annoying “know-it-all” sidekick.

    The metacommentary, which is meant to be a self-aware critique of the comic book fandom, falls flat and feels repetitive. Given the low s more

    Repetitive and nonconsequential. Feels like I've been reading the same story reworked over and ove again.
