(New Excalibur#18 (fb)) – After extradimensional warlords took over Earth-70518 and were confronted by its super-powered Albion, they attempted to flee via the Dimensional Doorway device. Locating a suitable alternate Earth to flee to, the warlords opened the portal, only for Captain Prydain of Earth-7580 to emerge. Defeating the warlords and finding Albion himself, Captain Prydain was defeated by Albion when he was shocked to see Albion’s face matching that of the Otherworld ruler, Brian Braddock. Taking Captain Prydain with him, Albion then used the Dimensional Doorway to travel to Captain Prydain’s home reality of Earth-7580, where he slew Captain Prydain for attacking him. Albion then announced that he and his comrades would take Earth-7580 as their own, plotting to strip Roma of her champions and Brian Braddock.

Not much was seen of Earth-7580, so it was unclear whether this was an alternate Earth or a divergent Earth. My guess is that it was an alternate Earth, given its brown-haired Captain Britain.
Prydain is the Welsh name for Britain, dating back to medieval times.
This would suggest that the British Isles of Earth-7580 were dominated
by Wales, rather than England, and that the island of Britain might well
be the island of Prydain in that reality. Since Captain Prydain's
costume includes an identical color scheme and similar layout to the
Union Flag, it is still likely that England, Wales, Scotland and perhaps
Ireland (part or all) formed a united kingdom as they did in our world.

Earth-7580 has no known connections to
The Dimensional Doorways were a series of devices that existed in multiple realities, Earth-7580 included. Each device was capable of searching the multiverse for other realities and opening a doorway between its home reality and a reality also containing a Dimensional Doorway. On Earth-70518, a Dimensional Doorway was used by extradimensional warlords in an attempt to flee the violent Albion of that reality. Locating Earth-7580, the Dimensional Doorway opened a portal between Earth-70518 and Earth-7580, allowing Earth-7580’s Captain Prydain to enter Earth-70518 via Earth-7580’s Dimensional Doorway, where he was defeated by Albion-70518. Taken back through the Dimensional Doorway to Earth-7580, Captain Prydain was killed by Albion.
