  1. Hafta say I never took to Captain Britain, despite having lived in Corby, Northants, close to where Alan Davis was brought up. It’s just that the seeming lack of effort in the short step from Captain America to Captain Britain put me off (I say this, but it’s probably sour grapes, as I’d earlier conceived a ‘Commander UK’ character, in cap and mask, whom I’d never pursued enough 😀 – Dave
