Avengers UK Facebook Webcomic

You should check out this Facebook magazine called 'Avengers UK', created by the fans for the fans.

Darren Wilson from Avengers UK said 'We are a free, fan-fiction webcomic on Facebook written and drawn (for the most part) by me.  Occasionally we have guest writers and artists working on the story and we also showcase art and related articles.

Essentially AUK was created to bring attention to 'Marvel Britain', our main cast is Captain Britain, Dark Angel, Motormouth and Shang-Chi.  Keeping in continuity as much as possible I've added an atheist Indo Glaswegian Ghost Rider and a cynical police detective with nothing better to do.  With guest appearances up and coming by Elsa Bloodstone and Death's Head.  And we're about to launch a new version of Knights of Pendragon!


This is good fun, and worth checking out, featuring some of Marvel UK's favourite characters.


Avengers UK is a 'just for fun non-profit' fan based fiction. All characters remain the property of their respective companies.

Captain Britain Appears In Uncanny Avengers #21


If you wondered what has happened to Captain Britain since The Revolutionary War, it seems he's been fighting the good fight with The Uncanny Avengers, wearing his stealth suit, again, as seen in Rick Remender's run on Secret Avengers. OK Marvel, what costume do you want him in? It seems to change with every appearance.

It looks like it's only another walk on part for the good Captain, but he does have a sentence to speak.

Miracleman Bowen Designs Statue

I found this in one of my many internet searches, a Bowen Designs Miracleman statue. To be perfectly honest, I didn't even know one existed until today. Released in 2003, and limited to 1000 pieces. It now retails for a pretty penny, since Marvel started publishing Miracleman.
