I picked up a copy of the new Marvel comic yesterday - with Guardians of the Galaxy, Daredevil and Avengers Arena in it. With the film coming out shortly, I wanted to see what the Guardians are like in the comics. On the whole, I really enjoyed the story, but there was one moment....
So, Iron Man has teamed up with the Guardians of the Galaxy, and they are thwarting an alien invasion over London. Communications are out, so Tony Stark can't summon the other American Avengers to help.
"Hey, Stark," Starlord says, in the middle of the battle, "are there any London-based superhero initiatives? Any British X-men?"
"There is a Captain Britain," says Tony.
"Is he any good?"
Cheeky beggar! Or at least, the writer Brian Michael Bendis is, for putting those words in Iron Man's mouth!
