365 Days of Defiance, Day 314: Extraordinary crimes against the people and the state must be avenged by agents extraordinary

I'm not gonna turn this into another multi-day feature like I've recently done with Legion of Super-Heroes #294, and I generally try not to post quite so many panels from a single comic book, but...there's too many great moments of sheer defiance backed with British pluck and determination in Captain Britain and MI13 to let them pass by. When the Skrulls (using the bleakest forms of dark sorcery) threaten to overrun the British Isles during the (not-so-) Secret Invasion, our cast of chars shows the sort of strong stuff that The Dam Busters and Doctor Who and Dad's Army are made of:

Panels from Captain Britain and MI13 #3 (September 2008), script by Paul Cornell, pencils by Leonard Kirk, inks by Jesse Delperdang and Scott Hanna, colors by Brian Reber, letters by Joe Caramagna

Whether it's Spitfire teamed with the good Skrull John Lennon...

..The Black Knight, and the heir to Excalibur Dr. Faiza Hussain...

Or the entire force of the land of Fairy, including Peaseblossom and Mustardseed...

And if you're valiant and hono(u)rable enough in your beliefs and your battles, King Arthur Captain Britain himself will come back from the dead to fight on your side.

Everybody sing along!
