Captain Britain & the Mighty Defenders #1-2

Post by Col_Fury » Thu May 11, 2017 3:03 am

CAPTAIN BRITAIN & the MIGHTY DEFENDERS #1 (September 2015)
By Al Ewing & ALAN DAVIS!

APPEARANCES:
Yinsen City Domain (EARTH-14029): Defenders: Rescue (Ho Yinsen, Baron of Yinsen City Domain, also in fb), Thor (She-Hulk/Jennifer Walters), Spider Hero (Hobie Brown, also in fb as Prowler), Kid Rescue (Antonia Yinsen), White Tiger (Ava Ayala); Spider-Man (Peter Parker, in fb)
Mondo City Domain (EARTH-32134): Boss Cage, Boss Frost, Boss Magniconte, War Machine, Chair
Captain Britain (Dr. Faiza Hussain, EARTH-61112)
Morlun (EARTH-001, in fb)
Doctor Doom (EARTH-616)

FLASHBACKS:
Tony Stark gives Ho Yinsen a suit of armor so he can survive and escape their capture, but Tony Stark dies (repeat of IM: Fatal Frontier, no new information). As Rescue, Ho Yinsen witnesses an incursion on his world (new). During Spider-Verse, Prowler watches Morlun kill Spider-Man. Prowler replaces Spider-Man, but he becomes known as “Spider Hero” instead because he’s not as good as Peter Parker was (new). Excalibur becomes the new Captain Britain (repeat of AASS 15AU, no new information).
SYNOPSIS:
Recalling memories of another world, Ho Yinsen begins to question reality. Thor/She-Hulk tells him that kind of talk is heresy and advises him against it in the future. The heroes of Yinsen City comment of how peaceful their Domain is, but suddenly a woman breaks through their wall with claims that reality isn’t what they think it is. Rescue says this is proof of what he was talking about earlier and Thor/She-Hulk agrees. Doom arrives (via hologram), strips She-Hulk of her Thor status and says since they don’t like his laws they’ll be punished; he destroys the wall separating them from Mondo City and they’re attacked. Yinsen is killed and Captain Britain is arrested. Soon after, the Mondo City Bosses begin to interrogate her.

NOTE:
This Domain is aware of other Domains (not all of them are); she mentions that Tony Stark is President of the Warzone. However, the Tony Stark of that Domain died in CW2. This can still happen after CW2 (and has to because of various factors including Dr. Strange) because word travels slowly in Battleworld between Domains. But, that means CW2 has to be relatively recent, at least.

The Yinsen City reality first appeared in Iron Man: Fatal Frontier. This Captain Britain/Faiza Hussain first appeared in Avengers Assemble #15AU (An Age of Ultron tie-in). Both of those and this mini were written by Al Ewing. Surprise! Also, Mondo City is clearly inspired by Judge Dredd’s Mega City One.

CAPTAIN BRITAIN & the MIGHTY DEFENDERS #2 (October 2015)
By Al Ewing & ALAN DAVIS!

APPEARANCES:
Yinsen City Domain (EARTH-14029): Defenders: Kid Rescue, White Tiger, Spider Hero, She-Hulk; Tiger God, bystanders
Mondo City Domain (EARTH-32134): Thor/Big Boss Hill (Baron of Mondo City Domain), Boss Cage (Dan Cage, clone #3), Boss Frost, Boss Magniconte, War Machine (sentient tank), Chair (sentient torture device), Councilman Six
Captain Britain (EARTH-61112)
Doctor Doom (EARTH-616)

SYNOPSIS:
Big Boss Hill (Thor and Baron of the Mondo City Domain) plans to raid the Yinsen City Domain of their resources. Meanwhile, the Defenders and other citizens of the Yinsen City Domain have been imprisoned by the Mondo City Domain’s Bosses; they plan their escape. Captain Britain escapes. The Defenders escape and defeat their captors. Captain Britain confronts Big Boss Hill, eventually convincing her to change her approach to Yinsen City (“We’ve let ideology blind us to reality. That’s led to some serious errors in judgement. Maybe it’s time we tried something else.”). The two Domains settle their differences and merge into one City Domain. Meanwhile, Boss Magniconte has been sent past the Shield as punishment for killing Yinsen. Doom chats with Captain Britain; he sent her to Yinsen City as an experiment. Captain Britain decides to stay in the City Domain for a while.

NOTE:
Doom is essentially doing Strange’s job here (settling disputes between Domains), suggesting this takes place after Strange is killed. Doom is using a method similar to what he did in Squadron Sinister; sending a person from a different reality to infiltrate a Domain to determine how stable it is. This would suggest this mini happens after SQSIN (he’s adapting a method to compensate for Strange no longer being around, and testing the waters to quell rebellions). In theory.
