Captain Britain Calls Elves 'Wankers' In Today's The War Of The Realms #5 From Marvel

Today sees the publication of The War Of The Realms #5, the penultimate issue of the main series of this event comic book by Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman, which has seen the Lord Of The Rings and the Game Of Thrones come to the Marvel Earth, divvying it up and seeing the heroes of Earth – and of Asgard – divided, and fighting a war on multiple fronts. Given such am insane threat on all levels, you might forgive the superheroes of this Earth a little laxity when it comes to their choice of language. Such as a Asgardified She-Hulk as Thunder Hulk fighting Ulik, king of the trolls, in Australia.

And yes, of course the trolls go to Australia…

Captain America is, of course, a grizzled soldier who has fought in Europe before – and also doesn't know what the word means. He has heard it before though, even his shield swears like a trooper.
