Marvel Announces ‘Betsy Braddock: Captain Britan’ at New York Comic-Con
She is one of the most underused heroes in the Marvel Universe, and fans are soon going to be able to meet her in a brand new way, as Marvel has announced the brand new Betsy Braddock: Captain Britain series at this year’s New York Comic-Con.
There is no understanding of the importance of conventions to the world of pop culture, but there is also no understating of how that importance has changed drastically in recent years.
Gone are the days when these events are merely celebratory occasions for fans to embrace some of the most beloved pop culture franchises among their peers, and present are the days where they are that and so much more.
These events are now the setting for some of the biggest announcements in the industry, with San Diego Comic-Con and D23 being massive media days where Marvel Studios unveil what’s to come from the gargantuan Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It is the East coast version of that event, however, that has now been embraced by Marvel comics, and presented an opportunity for them to share with fans what they have in store for the coming years, and just how much the Marvel Universe could change.
This year saw some of the biggest events being discussed, such as Spider-Man’s Dark Web event, or the X-Men’s Sins of Sinister series, but there was also an emphasis on some new projects that could diversify the Marvel lineup.
Among those was the recently unveiled Betsy Braddock: Captain Britain title that will see one of the most underused heroes of the Marvel Universe become the focal point of her very own limited series.
