Emma Collins is a character from the Marvel UK strip Brian Braddock. A warmhearted, altruistic and hardworking woman, she was the housekeeper employed at Braddock Manor by Sir James and Lady Elizabeth Braddock, and much loved by their children Brian Braddock (alias Captain Britain), Betsy Braddock and Jamie Braddock. Emma lived in Braddock Manor and apparently had no living relatives. Such was her dedication to her work that she inadvertently caused the defeat of the villainous Doctor Synne by temporarily switching off the Mastermind computer that was granting him his powers so that she could thoroughly clean the basement, which had been unused since Sir James and his wife had died down there.
None of this did her much good, as she ended up being mentally dominated by the aforementioned computer for several years apparently without the Braddocks or anyone else bothering to find out what had happened to her, and then (after eventually being rescued by Brian) finally dying due to progressive neurological damage caused by her enslavement (and possibly by the time Mastermind knocked her unconscious with its wrist-mounted laser). Mastermind, who had unexpectedly become rather fond of her over the years, announced his/its intention to make her last days as happy and comfortable as possible by taking her on a cruise. In the end, at least somebody actually gave a damn about Emma, even if it was only a murderous artificial intelligence masquerading as a butler called Jeeves.
