Exclusive Preview: Excalibur #3

Captain Britain has been lost! Morgan le Fay, the ruler of the magical realm, Otherworld, has declared war on the mutants. Additionally, Morgan enslaved Brian Braddock, and he was forced to pass on his Captain Britain mantle to his sister, Betsy. Now, the former Psylocke is the new Captain Britain and the leader of an informal Excalibur team. However, there’s at least one more member left to recruit.

In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Excalibur #3, Tini Howard and artist Marcus To catch up with Rictor. As the former ward of X-Factor and a long-time X-Force member, Rictor also has a lot of history with the mutant heroes. However, there have apparently been some changes since we last saw him. Now, Rictor’s powers are spiraling out of control. His only hope may be Apocalypse, the first mutant and the X-Men’s longtime adversary. Apocalypse claims that he’s for the new mutant nation of Krakoa…but he’s also the one who started the war with Morgan le Fay.

“THE GREEN EARTH TREMBLES! Captain Britain must face the truth about her brother and choose her path forward as MI-13 and the agents of the crown become aware of her ascension.”
