The Abandoned An' Forsaked - Lionheart Seeing Her Kids is a BAD Thing?

All throughout December, we will be examining comic book stories and ideas that were not only abandoned, but also had the stories/plots specifically "overturned" by a later writer (as if they were a legal precedent). Click here for an archive of all the previous editions of The Abandoned An' Forsaked. Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com if you have any suggestions for future editions of this feature.

Today we look at one of the odder about faces you'll see...

When Captain Britain first showed up, this is what his choices were...

Now I'm surely no stickler for continuity, but Chuck Austen really dropped the ball during his Avengers run when he had a new character given the same choice as Brian...


If you don't say specifically that the amulet is for life and the sword is for death, then you miss the whole point of the exercise! The exercise is to see if the person chooses life over death, not amulet over sword! A bad mistake by Austen. Anyhow...

She served with the Avengers for a short time and left after Avengers Disassembled. She later showed up in the pages of New Excalibur, first working against Captain Britain but ultimately siding with him and Excalibur. So she is rewarded with....a visit to her kids?

So, I guess it is okay for her to see her kids now!
