But when Britain remains unbowed, Morgan reaches for the big gun - in the form of Doom! Will Morgan's ally of the past help her build the Avalon of her demented dreams? Or does Doctor Doom have a plan of his own up his iron sleeves?

    This penultimate issue does a fantastic job of foreshadowing what is to come but does so in such a way that it gives very little away. I loved the family meeting at the close of the issue and some of the questions that the Braddock family was pondering. Especially where it concerns how they can fight Morgan Le Fay and do it in such a way that they do not endanger the country or pull Europe into another war. Read Full Review

    Betsys been through a lot. Shes been many different people since she debuted back in the 1980s. Braddocks latest incarnation as Captain Britain has proven to be an appealing one. Howards writing has moved Betsy into a remarkably satisfying place that balances drama with action, mystery, and magic. It really is the perfect mixture for a decent Captain Britain story. Georgievs art fits the overall presence of Howards writing quite well.  Read Full Review

    ‘Betsy Braddock: Captain Britain' spends its penultimate issue bringing all the pieces to the gameboard, preparing for a big confrontational conclusion. This colorful gorgeous series shows so much love to the Braddocks/British Marvel and will be missed greatly. Hopefully, there is more on the way. Read Full Review

    The real highlight of Tini Howard's script is seeing the issue's dynamic, including Betsy standing shoulder-to-shoulder with some of Marvel's biggest herores, so much so that the specifics of the main battle become slightly underwhelming. Read Full Review

    Another series finding its feet just in time for another rushed conclusion at issue 5. I haven't a clue why Marvel thinks constantly restarting and cancelling their lower-selling X titles is a good idea, but I wish they'd get over it because it makes for some terribly unsatisfying reading

    Another disappointing endeavor and the weakest so far.

    One recurring weakness is its “monster-of-the-week” structure, which proves to be a detriment to the overall narrative. Too much is packed into a limited number of pages, rendering many plot elements ultimately inconsequential.

    Furthermore, Howard’s metacommentary is becoming excessive and burdensome. In each issue, she relentlessly hammers home the same tiresome rhetoric about Betsy being Captain Britain and her romantic relationship with Rachel, employing dialogue that feels forced and cringe-inducing. The author’s self-insertion becomes glaringly obvious in the date page interview.

    Rachel continues to be the weakest aspect of the comic. She be more
