Am I the only one who can recognise that it's a jolly good outfit?

He don't need no stinking keys! He's Captain Britain!

Perhaps that's true . . . in a different outfit.

Perhaps if we gave him a shield with a big Union Jack on it?

Why not a belt (pouches optional) and some gloves? (Helmet would be nice, too, but not necessary.)

What exactly do heroes keep in all those belt pouches? Sandwiches? A few Archie digests for whiling away the long rooftop patrols?

A clean change of underwear? Bat-shark repellant?

By the way, has there been a Lieutenant Scotland (or anything similar)? Maybe a Suzy Scotland?

Nope. There is a distinct lack of Scots superheroes.

Captain Clyde, written and drawn by Grant Morrison, is the only Scottish superhero I can think of, and I don't think his costume was flag-based.

I vaguely remember Captain Clyde. Or rather, seeing chunks of it in some Morrison retrospective. Fairly primitive stuff, as I recall.

Y'know, come to think of it, Wolfsbane (who had been part of Marvel's New Mutants) was Scottish, wasn't she?

I always find it weird when I'm older than characters I grew up reading or watching.

Well, if it makes you feel better, Brian Braddock was clearly supposed to be about 20 when he first appeared, so he should really be approaching 60 now in our terms.

Actually, that just makes me feel worse...

No, but it's a very cool idea. I hope it happens. And that the US gets to see it.

Also, isn't this a bit rough?

"Like many British people, the Captain has a prodigious appetite for alcohol"


Also, have you seen the prices for the editions of CB with Alan Moore's work? Ridiculous.

I know. Though I find it gratifying that a run that I've always considered to be amongst Moore's best work is now getting the recognition it deserves, even if it is ludicrously overpriced. As to the alcohol comment, yes it's a bit rough, but not actually inaccurate...

I think a couple of American writers took one scene in one of the Delano issues with Brian drinking scotch as evidence that he's an alcoholic. You'll notice most American superheroes seem not to drink (except Wolverine, obviously).

No, foreigners are weird-British people are endearingly eccentric. Especially if they're from the upper classes.

Well, being nobbled is the last thing I want. Reckon I'll stick to being a prole. My brother Frankie and my dad already wear flat caps, so all I need now is a whippet. Ee, it's grim up North!
