Synopsis: 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.
Picking up the story from the last issue. Morgan Le Fay has returned and is looking to find a Captain Britain that she can manipulate and use for her own ends. In order to help her find the right candidate she has formed an alliance with the Furies. In order to keep Betsy busy Morgan has sent the Furies out to attack the multiverse as a distraction. However, Betsy has figured this out and has also figured out that Morgan is looking to try and recruit Lizzie Braddock who is an agent of S.T.R.I.K.E. and works alongside Peggy Carter on Earth 76.
Vasco Georgiev does a solid job of the art in this issue. I loved the panels that take place on Earth 76 when Morgan Le Fay gets into Peggy Carter’s mind and has her attack Betsy Braddock who is trying to protect Lizzie from Le Fay’s influence. I also quite enjoyed the sequences where we see Coven Akabba following their rituals. In short, we get given a lot of great imagery in this issue but pretty much all of the best visuals in this issue involve Morgan Le Fay who is proving to be every bit the villain that we know she can be.
Overall. 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.
