HeroClix X-Men House Of X: Captain Britain (Betsy Braddock) Revealed
The next HeroClix set, coming in December, is X-Men House of X. Multiple outlets have received pre-release bricks of the set, allowing them to reveal new figures and abilities for the first time. TheGamer was included, and in our unboxing video I happened to stumble one of the Super Rare characters. You can watch that to see the figure up close, and here I’ll reveal what’s on the card.
This is Captain Britain from the Excalibur comics. Where many might remember Brian Braddock in the role, his twin sister Betsy took it on recently during a whole incident with Apocalypse. This intertwined with mutantkind’s move to the sentient island of Krakoa. It also saw Betsy reforming the Excalibur team, leaving behind the Psylocke name to be Captain Britain.
Here’s a text version of her stats:
