2011 Hasbro Comic Series #06 Captain Britain

Captain Britain was first introduced in the UK in 1976 and was created by Chris Claremont and Herb Trimpe. At first it wasn't acknowledged that he was a part of the Marvel Universe but within a couple of years he appeared alongside Spider Man to an international audience. For me personally, Captain Britain came at a time when comic books were behind me and therefore remained 'under the radar' until recently when acquiring toys for the blog. This toy version includes the sword Excalibur and a clip-on, spring-loaded rocket blaster with one 'rocket'. He's a really neat looking character with his Royal Guard inspired uniform and the rocket blaster gives him him some 'punch'. Enjoy!
