Marvel’s next superhero idea focuses on Brexit
Marvel Comics is launching a new team of superheroes representing England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
Their mission is to see if they can get along peaceably after Britain’s exit from the European Union, English writer behind the new comic Paul Grist said.
Now, new comic-book characters from the U.K. named Britannia, Union Jack, Kelpie, The Choir and Snakes are about to defend the islands from extraterrestrial shape-shifters.
"The basic principle is that the U.K. government is wanting to form a new superhero team post-Brexit so the country can get behind them, all the separate countries represented," the Wall Street Journal cited him as saying.
