    This is a satisfying conclusion to the story arc, but it looks like it could well likely lead into a future arc as I don’t think Betsy’s solution is as elegant as she thinks it might be. I loved how S.T.R.I.K.E. was used in this issue. But for me, the best inclusion was seeing Faiza Hussain get a good role as she is a character that Paul Cornell introduced to the Marvel Universe via his run on Captain Britain and is a character that I don’t think we’ve seen enough of.

    Full of heart and drama, Betsy Braddock: Captain Britain #5 is a fitting finale for the Braddocks and their assorted allies. Dark days may be ahead for mutantkind, but Captain Britain has found a happy place for her story to resolve for the time being. Telling a story this long, this queerly, this magically, in the state of current corporate comics creation is a thing worth celebrating, and this finale is a job well done.

    As both a finale for this miniseries and a celebration of Betsy’s tenure as Captain Britain, this issue is genuinely effective. The final fight against Morgan Le Fay strips away much of the multiversal clutter that dotted previous issues, instead depicting a breezy, but significant battle involving Betsy and her corps. Here’s hoping this isn’t the final time that Tini Howard writes Betsy, because this issue is chock-full of charm, accompanied expertly by Vasco Georgiev’s art.

    Another series with Britain’s new Captain comes to a close as the final issue of ‘Betsy Braddock: Captain Britain’ works to close out years worth of plotlines and story beats. A mostly solid issue puts the punctuation on a multi-series attempt to do the character and her side of the Marvel Universe justice after years of neglect. Hopefully it’s not the last of these characters and creators we see at the house of ideas.

    This was a great concluding story to a wonderful character series. Although it felt like it could have used a few pages or even another entire issue to help with the pacing and bring the story to a fuller conclusion, this was a wonderful story that was written and illustrated in a very fun and exciting way.

    Betsy is an appealing enough character that she really deserves a bit more of a central focus. Howard is trying to give her extended cast a bit too much of the plot. The inner struggles of Betsy should rest more or less at the center of the book, but she’s not allowed nearly enough time on the page to develop into anything more than the leader of a team. It’s cool to see her in charge, but there should be more of a focus on her and who she is in the center of her own book.
