[[AC:The Marvel Comic]]

* The return of all the Marvel UK heroes in the series finale.
** And oh so many others such as John the Skrull[[spoiler:'s death, going out mouthing off to the enemy and how everyone reacted to it (Brian sums it up as "good on him")]].
** Pete Wisdom versus the big bad in Vampire State. [[spoiler: almost all of that story could be seen as Wisdom playing a game of "who is the bigger magnificent bastard" with Dracula. Given that Dracula himself in a hallucination considers Wisdom the biggest threat after Brian (who is literally as powerful as he needs to be) and Blade (who already killed Dracula at least once) then Wisdom is winning]] and where is Wisdom during the final battle? having a nice picnic with a woman he fancies.
** How the people of Britain respond to the [[spoiler: death of Captain Britain. Don't worry, it doesn't last two issues]]. Tears. Anger. And PRIDE. The Skrulls MIGHT have won, then they did that. And managed to press the "We'll fight them on the beaches" button in the soul of the British people. Cut to "a regiment of SAS, some police officers and a doctor defending the last bridge before Westminster. We're going to give them hell".
** Captain Britain. Excalibur (yes THAT Excalibur). Mouthy alien bragging about how Britain could be great if they didn't elevate mediocrity to an art. Brian's response? "We know all that. We just don't like to make a fuss".
** What does Faiza Hussein, a regular nurse and [[AscendedFanboy Ascended Fangirl]], do after a supremely powerful alien uses unstoppably powerful magic to slaughter dozens (if not hundreds) of soldiers and tells her to get out of his way so he can continue his rampage? She whispers, "[[LittleNo no]]".

* [[spoiler:"Lancelot with us!" Even the old wound which he ''still has'' is overcome by the need to do good for Camelot. The fact that Lancelot probably also died along with Arthur makes it all the more poignant.]]

** pretty much the last 10 minutes of the film. Starting with the above mentioned scene it is just straight-up awesome. [[spoiler: Merlin coming back as a dream, Merlin's vengeance on Morganna, the battle, Lancelot being a badass one last time, Arthur and Mordred killing each other(including the marvelous line: "come father, let us embrace at last"), and of course Percival throwing Excalibur into the lake and then seeing Arthur being carried away]] All toped off by that shot of the lady of the lake holding Excalibur with the sun rising in the distant and accompanied by "The Death of Siegfried" from Wagner's Twilight of the Gods = one of the best shot scenes this troper has ever seen in a film and simply pure awesomeness.

** Made even more awesome by the fact that Uryens is visibly ''trembling'' as he holds the sword -- after he was perfectly calm with it at his neck.
