History

Jamie Braddock was the older brother of the twins Brian and Betsy Braddock, and a successful racing driver. In his first stories he seemed a reasonably okay bloke who kept Captain Britain's identity secret when he discovered it, and at one point was kidnapped by the Red Skull to be used as a hostage. He even offered to help his brother fight Lord Hawk, but to stop him from being hurt Brian punched him unconscious and tied him to a chair.

Eventually, however, Jamie's affluent lifestyle got out of hand. In order to cover his mounting debts, Jamie turned to various criminal enterprises including the slave trade in Africa, which led to his being captured by Joshua N'Dingi, alias Doctor Crocodile. Jamie managed to call his brother Brian, now Captain Britain, to come and rescue him. When Brian realised what kind of monster his brother had become, he left him to die at his vengeful captor's hands.

American appearances

Jamie, however, survived and later returned to clash with Excalibur and the X-Men, having gone insane and developed the mutant power to warp reality. Happens every day, really...

Trivia

  • Jamie used to have a "posh flat" in Chelsea, where he would sit on the sofa with a bowl of popcorn and watch Captain Britain's exploits on television.
  • In the story relating Jamie's immoral activities, 'African Nightmare' (Captain Britain (trade paperback) Vol 1 1), he was depicted as the slimiest, smuggest git who ever smugged. Not only did he wear a huge gold bracelet with his initials on, but he was also shown using the food bowl of a starving African child as an ashtray for his cigar.
