Much of Zola's abilities of control (in the Kirby stuff) stem from being able to manipulate things mentally, so he could be manipulating everything on a dimensional level or he could just be manipulating Cap alone. I'm hoping Remender doesn't use the typical cop out for these kinds of stories. He's way too good of a writer for that.
I'm sure that Remender has some type of interesting twist in store but the fact that he kept mentioning Cap's headaches and the pain from the place where Zola injected him is still bothering him a "year" after he escaped
, sorta throws up a red flag for me.
I can definitely see where Brubaker fans would hate this story. Brubaker Cap is the only other Cap I've read besides this and Kirby but I was pretty bored by it. I got through Red Menace and didn't bother with anything else.
I was a fan of Brubaker's run but so far I have enjoyed this story, in fact part of the reason why I like this story so far is because of how different it is from Brubaker's run. We always get to see Cap interacting with characters like Thanos, Loki, the Kree, and the Skrulls in comics like Avengers and event books but it's been a long time since we got to see him running solo in a sci-fi setting.
I like that its a long story. Granted, long stories can go bad (see: Superman For Tomorrow) but I think after the long stories in the Uncanny X-Force run by Remender, this will have its pay offs.
See, I would think that after finishing such an epic run as his Uncanny X-Force, Remender would want to slow down a little and take it easy for awhile.
Its pretty obvious he's fanboying Kirby big time. Even that run started off with a long ass story arc that took a long time. Its very good though. I just finished it last week and I loved it.
Great, now I am going to have to go out and find the Cap Kirby Omnibus...
