@Denyer. Yes, it was an ad that featured in the early Marvel issues... say around the teens/early twenties. The panel would have been black & white, took up less than half a page. I think the furry creature had weird arms as well, slightly gangly with two or three fingers (and thumb) on the end.

Hmm...couldn't find anything on Google Images, closest I could find was a Meep from Doctor Who Magazine

or Meggan, before she transformed

Gatecrasher's Technet / later (? - they're time travellers) the Special Executive. Some of them, at least.

Maybe it's Thug, from the description?

FYI ads for Captain Britain ran in UK#6-7, 18-19 and 29-30. Ads for the later trade were in UK#190, 194 and 197.

Completely irrelevant to the discussion, just throwing it out there.

That's the ad Denyer! Thank you! And its that weird, white shrivelled egg-thing with the oversized, hollow eyes & the spindly legs. Freaky thing!

On top of that, why is Captain Britain wearing lipstick in the little circular panel directly above?

I'm fairly sure that's Captain UK.

That strange egg-thing is Captain UK/Linda McQuillan?

Nah, see edit above. And by age of the comic, it's probably the earlier of the two members --

Would Captains Britain and UK have lost some of their superpowers if Scotland had voted for independence?

Blimey, sounds like a character who didn't even get to speak before he was killed (off panel). Love the name Elmo for a weird alien though!
