Captain Britain and MI: 13
That struggle begins this May with the launch of “Captain Britain and MI:13,” a new ongoing series by writer Paul Cornell and artist Leonard Kirk. CBR News spoke with Cornell and his editor Nick Lowe about the series, which finds some of the Marvel U’s most popular British heroes coming together to fight the Skrull invaders.
The inaugural story in “Captain Britain and MI: 13” unfolds over the course of the series’ first four issues. “It's about bare survival for Britain and the team, out of which Pete Wisdom and Captain Britain, in their different ways, manage to conjure up what the major, ongoing situation for our heroes is,” Cornell stated. “There's a big point to what they do and why they do it, and why they'll stay together. They're not just a random super team; they're here to do a job. This isn't 'that British book', it's a book that uses certain things about Britain to its advantage, but we might well take these British heroes off to the States in a later story.”
Real-life British Prime Minister Gordon Brown appears in “Captain Britain and MI:13” to make the decree that gives birth to the team and its group dynamic. “Pete Wisdom is in charge, and, as he's grown up a bit (though he's still everything that makes him my particular hero), that doesn't rankle so much, at least with his initial team,” Cornell explained. “At the start, our heroes are just doing what must be done--only then Pete goes and screws up a bit, but, as always, with the best of intentions.”Pete Wisdom, fellow MI: 13 operative John the Skrull (also from the ‘Wisdom’ series), and the titular Captain Britain are the initial members of the new MI:13. “The team isn't quite all there in the first issue,” Cornell remarked. “There's a certain degree of fluidity, and one big British character, who various editors have been mentioning without naming, joins in as late as issue #5.”
The cast of “Captain Britain and MI:13” are all government spies, but that doesn’t mean they’ll behave like secret agents instead of superheroes. “They won't be seeking publicity, but you can't stop [Captain Britain] from running into a burning building, and nor would Pete want to,” Cornell explained. “They'll be going up against a particular brand of bad guys, the genre being espionage vs.--something else. I think we'd all be bored if they took on terrorists.
