CALIBUR

Membership: Cap'n Saxonia, Doctor Strange, The Hulk, Iron Fist, Spider-Girl

Purpose: To defend Earth and the British Isles

Affiliations: Presumably allied with the [Captain Britain] Corps

Enemies: Keng

Base of Operations: Earth-924

First Appearance: Excalibur I#49 (April, 1992)

History:
(Excalibur I#49) - The Caliburian's battle with Keng was interrupted as the combatants found themselves briefly transported to the lighthouse HQ of the Excalibur of Earth-616 during a crosstime flux. They initially blamed Keng for this maneuver, but he pleaded innocence.

(Uncanny X-Men#462) - Hulk, Spider-Girl and Doctor Strange from Calibur were seen when the "House of M" reality warp went through Otherworld.

Comments: Calibur created by Alan Davis.

    The Caliburians speak an antiquated British dialect, including those heroes whose counterparts on Earth-616 are American.

    Doctor Strange may be a direct female counterpart to the Earth-616 version (Stephanie Strange?), an heir of sorts (Clea, possibly?), a counterpart to Arcanna Jones of Earth-S, or someone else entirely.

    Spider-Girl may have a connection to the counterpart Betty Brant/Spider-Girl as seen in What If I#7, or be someone else entirely.

    The Hulk and Iron Fist are presumably direct counterparts to the Bruce Banner and Daniel Rand of Earth-616.

    The relationship of Keng to the Council of Cross-Time Kangs is unknown, although he is presumably from the 40th century of Earth-924.
