When Captain Britain Became A Muslim Woman. For A Couple Of Pages. In An Alternate Timeline.

Last week, the Avengers Assemble comic from Marvel published an issue that crossed over with the Age Of Ultron series – which has already been wiped from existence by Wolverine going back in time and killing Ant Man.

Look, if you don’t know your comics, just Google it or something.

But in the story, we saw a United Kingdom being invaded by the Ultron robot army and Captain Britain making a rather special offer to Faiza Hussein, the healing superhero known as Excalibur.

And yes, Captain Britain does snuff it…


and so yes Faiza takes on the title for a couple of panels before the whole timeline is deleted, but but still counts as the first female Muslim Captain Britain.

Wasn’t the only interesting polictical statement in the comic however…
