History[]

Sandy York was a student at Thames University in London, a keen photographer, and apparently the only friend of Brian Braddock. His photography was the cause of the villain Hurricane's first defeat, when a set of ruined negatives revealed that the villain was emitting radiation, giving Captain Britain the key to beating him. Aside from that one incident, Sandy was pretty much ineffectual.

Notes[]

Sandy York was probably one of the most pointless supporting characters ever, making a grand total of two appearances before being totally forgotten about. His existence appears to have been a result of writer Chris Claremont attempting to duplicate the success of Spider-Man's early supporting cast, with Sandy as a stand-in for Harry Osborn. It didn't really work.

Sandy also almost always knew when and where to find Brian Braddock, even helping Courtney Ross do so. Whether that means he was Brian's flatmate, lived in the same building or was simply his gay stalker has never been explored further.
