Excalibur chosen by the fans

For a year I ran a vote, just for fun, on Excalibur. If Marvel decided to reinvent Britain's premier team, who should be in it? I picked thirty heroes, some had been members of Excalibur previously, or had connections to Excalibur, or Captain Britain.

Captain Britain got the most amount of votes, which is no surprise, and I then picked the next six most voted for to make up the team, seven's always a good, lucky team number.

Here's Excalibur, as chosen by those that voted...
Captain Britain, Meggan, Black Knight, Pete Wisdom, Spitfire, Union Jack, and Lionheart.

There were quite a few close contenders for inclusion in the team, and these could be used as guest stars, or even have a storyline built around them, involving Excalibur. The next, best of the rest if you like were...
Micromax, Kylun, and Dark Angel.

I included every ClanDestine member, but alas they didn't fare too well, the most votes going to Crimson Crusader. Maybe there could be an Exclaibur academy, where young heroes like Imp, and her brother, Crimson Crusader could enrol.

Like I said, it was just for fun but, how good would it be? Drawn by Alan Davis, and written by Paul Cornell, but don't change Cap's costume Paul. Hell I might even write it, and submit it to Marvel... we can all dream!
