    This penultimate issue does a fantastic job of foreshadowing what is to come but does so in such a way that it gives very little away. I loved the family meeting at the close of the issue and some of the questions that the Braddock family was pondering. Especially where it concerns how they can fight Morgan Le Fay and do it in such a way that they do not endanger the country or pull Europe into another war.

    Betsy’s been through a lot. She’s been many different people since she debuted back in the 1980s. Braddock’s latest incarnation as Captain Britain has proven to be an appealing one. Howard’s writing has moved Betsy into a remarkably satisfying place that balances drama with action, mystery, and magic. It really is the perfect mixture for a decent Captain Britain story. Georgiev’s art fits the overall presence of Howard’s writing quite well.

    ‘Betsy Braddock: Captain Britain’ spends its penultimate issue bringing all the pieces to the gameboard, preparing for a big confrontational conclusion. This colorful gorgeous series shows so much love to the Braddocks/British Marvel and will be missed greatly. Hopefully, there is more on the way.

    Betsy’s fight against Morgan Le Fay—and for the safety of the Marvel universe—reaches a point that is more character-driven than anything else. The real highlight of Tini Howard’s script is seeing the issue’s dynamic, including Betsy standing shoulder-to-shoulder with some of Marvel’s biggest herores, so much so that the specifics of the main battle become slightly underwhelming. But there’s still an inherent sense of liveliness on display, both from the nitty-gritty of the script and from Vasco Georgiev’s art, to make this a worthwhile read.

    Sure, issue #5 may be the end of this run, but this issue felt like the first time the series aligned in full with Howard’s previous, totes excellent Excalibur series, enhancing that magical title while more firmly standing on its own. (I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that the Betsy-Rachel Summers relationship continues to flourish in vital ways.) I hope #5 can achieve the same kind of results and all-around feel, because that could make this short run something truly powerful.
