Captain Britain (Brian Braddock), is a fictional character, a superhero appearing in the comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Chris Claremont and Herb Trimpe, he first appeared in Captain Britain Weekly #1 (October 1976). The character has been used in stories through the years by many people, most notably Chris Claremont, Alan Davis, and Alan Moore.
The character was initially intended to be a British equivalent of Captain America. Endowed with extraordinary powers by the legendary magician Merlyn and his daughter Roma, Captain Britain was assigned to uphold the laws of Britain.
The character was created by writer Chris Claremont and artist Herb Trimpe and originally appeared in Captain Britain Weekly, an anthology comic published exclusively in the United Kingdom by the Marvel Comics imprint known as Marvel UK. (Captain Britain Weekly also included reprinted material featuring other Marvel Comics characters such as Nick Fury and the Fantastic Four). The first few issues of the comic were also promoted with free gifts, including a cardboard Captain Britain mask and a Captain Britain boomerang.
