Hell comes to Birmingham

Tom Lennon tells us about Captain Midlands:

“if Birmingham-based cinemagoers want a superhero they can really identify with then they’ll have to look elsewhere. Luckily, an ideal candidate already exists. His name? Captain Midlands. Yes, that sprawling and overpopulated metafictional monstrosity that is the Marvel Comics Universe actually contains a patriotic, shield-slinging, living legend of World War II who is also a Brummie. If the likes of Captains America and Britain are (in the language of the aviation industry) national flag-carriers, then Captain Midlands is  a hyperlocal hero.”
