On the face of it, everything should be going right for Betsy Braddock. Marvel’s latest Captain Britain has not only settled the problems in Otherworld, she’s restored both her ancestral home and her brother to full health — but, instead of having something to celebrate, she’s finding life harder than ever... setting herself up for a brand-new solo miniseries, announced during Sunday’s Women in Marvel panel at New York Comic Con 2022.
The series, debuting in February next year, will be titled Betsy Braddock: Captain Britain. Running five issues, it continues writer Tini Howard’s longterm work with the character following her earlier 2019 series Excalibur and this year’s follow-up, Knights of X; for this new series, she’ll be joined by Vasco Georgiev (Batman: Urban Legends, Aquaman & The Flash: Voidsong) making their Marvel Comics debut.
It’s a fitting next step for the character under Howard’s pen; she was, after all, the writer that transformed Betsy into Captain Britain in the first place — who better to write Betsy’s first official solo series as Captain Britain? Especially as its one that sets the character off in an all-new direction as she begins a journey to find herself - and her new purpose - once again.
Betsy Braddock: Captain Britain was one of a number of new titles announced during today’s Women in Marvel panel, alongside Rogue & Gambit, and a new miniseries starring Laura Kinney titled X-23: Deadly Regenesis, in addition to Saturday’s announcement of a new X-Men crossover event, Sins of Sinister, all scheduled to launch in the first few months of 2023. Judging by this weekend, it’s going to be a busy time to be an X-Men fan next year.
