Captain America Vs. Captain Britain

Captain Britain

As preparation for a trip to the cinema to see The Winter Soldier, I’ve recently re-watched Captain America: The First Avenger. Watching his origin on the screen got me wondering if other countries had created similar patriotic heroes to call their own. The answer shouldn’t have come as much of a surprise – of course they have. In fact my very own homeland, with help from Marvel, created Captain Britain!

And what do you do once you’ve created a superhero so similar to the original avenger? Well, you get him to fight his namesake of course!

There is little point in writing here who Captain Britain is as Wikipedia acts as a great reference to his many appearances in comics and other media.

However, I have created a Pinterest board with some of the best artwork I could find for the character and I’ll expand this over time.
