You keep telling yourself that, but if it weren't Captain America would you really even bother?
But it doesn't bother me either, it's just more sloppy writing from the company that couldn't even manage to spell the month right on their NYCC promo cover last year.
You guys sure do set the bar for them pretty low!
What do you mean "you guys"?
That was the first Marvel comic I've bought in like 3 years. At least in terms of a new release.
To be honest, I'm not really a Captain America fan. I've only ever really liked the character in the Ultimate Alliance video games and the Jack Kirby stuff. Every other time I've read the character I've never really gave a shit either way.
My one complaint about the story is that it feels like it could be any character replacing Cap and still be what it is. I mean, they could replace Cap with Iron Man and Zola with whatever mad scientist Iron Man villain they could. It doesn't feel like it could only be a story for a specific character, which is something Marvel usually does so well. I really liked the way that Planet Hulk absolutely had to be a Hulk story or how Origin felt like it could only be a Wolverine story, etc.
I'm gonna give it a couple more issues. It's only 30% completed so if by 50% or 60% it's still meandering, then fuck it. I'll stop caring pretty easily.
