Avengers Arena Gives Us The Closest We’ll Get To A Captain Britain/Slaine Crossover (Spoilers)

 

In Avengers Arena #2 (and talking of which, there’s a hell of a lot of Number Twos from Marvel out this week) we get to meet the kids of the Braddock Academy. Picture a British version of the Jean Grey School that somehow nevcer got mentioned by Brian, Jamie or Betsy Braddock in Uncanny X-Force (which finishes today, even when Cable And  X-Force are onto their second issue this week). So who have we got?

A mini-Captain Britain, a mini-Namorita…

A mini-vampire hunter and a mini-Slaine…

And Katy Bashir, who is in no way a mashup of Kate Adie and Martin Bashir… and yes, Deathlockette or Death Locket, whichever way you want to go.

So, who will be popular enough to survive and make it through to their own mini-series?
