Get ready for a role reversal, kids! 

 

No Caption Provided


 Last week we let all you Captain Britain fans know that there was no need to worry, you would all be seeing the British superhero return to comics in the upcoming post-SIEGE mini, Age of Heroes. But if you were wishing to catch a glimpse of the British superhero sooner, then you'll be happy to hear that former MI-13 writer Paul Cornell hit his blog with an image hinting that the next appearance of Captain Britain will be in the May issue of Deadpool Team-Up #893. The book will be written by Rob Williams, and penciled by Matteo Scalera. One look at the incredible cover and my jaw dropped. Humberto Ramos does a phenomenal job, seriously.

While Marvel hasn't yet released any info of what we can expect in the upcoming issue, there is a lot you can tell from Ramos' awesome cover. Is that Deadpool in a bowler hat sipping a cup of tea? And Cap donning a cowboy hat, getting ready to hit a home run? Looks like these two gents engage in a little bit of role reversal in this issue, at least based on the cover. I can't wait to see what happens in this issue and for Marvel's official solicitation! Are you excited for these two characters to team up? Are you looking forward to the upcoming appearance of Captain Britain in a Deadpool team-up?

If that's the cover I am going to get it just for that.

This looks so cool but I think that Deadpool is starting to just be everywhere. It's getting dull seing him everywhere.

love Cap, but every issue of Team-Up has been a let down for me.
dont have any hope for it and as it is this issue is looking to be my drop-off point.
 
@MTS:
um, its an actual Deadpool series where characters Team-Up with him. its 
a parody of Spider-Man Team-Up, and Marvel Team-Up which really just was Spider-Man
Team-Up for most of the issues of it.

Deadpool was a lot more interesting when he was only in 1-2 books.

I think i'm gonna like this issue, is better when you know about the guest character in the Team-Up series.  
So far i didn't know anything about the Zapata Brothers and U.S.Ace.

This series has been great. Apparently people don't read the bottom of the picture. HIS SERIES! Probably the best cover so far.

I might buy this one, for Cap not for Deadpool. Same reason I bought the one where he teamed up with Hercules.

Ramos is on top of the American Manga system.  Just love his work.  Depending on who is doing the ink work its even that much better.  I used to get baked and stare at the Venom story where Eddie Brock tells about him having cancer or the Revenge of the Green Goblin story got his new suit.  Just beautiful.

Awesome, it's great to see marvel using the Brits again. Although I would love to see Paul Cornell continue writing him along with the rest of MI:13...God I LOVED that book. Whatta shame

I loved that cover when I saw it in the solicitations... there's something simply spiffing about seeing the eartswhile Mr Wilson donning is bowler hat & monocle while sipping tea.  It's nice to see his little finger is out too.  Rather! 
 
But yeah, I've loved all of Ramos' covers for this series.  Sadly, they haven't been enough to make me buy this since the first issue.  I'll wait to hear more about the story before I commit to buying this... It'd be a cert if Cap was still in his funky white uniform (I just don't like the blue with red so much).

@xerox-kitty: Was the funky white costume you're referring to the one with the mask from his classic excalibur days? if so that was my favorite as well.

I can just hear Deadpool saying, "Cheerio, pip pip gov! I dare say it is time to give these boys a damn good thrashing, what say you?" and then Cap B. would respond with, "Will you stop talking like that to me you tosser and get out of my my sodding comic!" Oh what a time they'll have.

Y'know i'm English and I think i'm detecting a bit of racism (in the comments), but shouldn't it be Captain Britain poking fun at Canada instead of America.
