Captain America #13 (Spoilers)

Postby Stephen Day » Sun Nov 10, 2013 1:50 pm

With this issue we're finally right into the heart of the story dealing with Nuke. I wasn't too sure about the last couple of issues, but I really enjoyed this one. We're finally at the point where Remender can really begin showing what makes Nuke a good foe for Cap. The juxtaposition between the America that Steve Rogers represents and the America that Nuke represents is quite effectively shown this issue. Remender did a good job of showing this while still skirting the edge and preventing things from becoming too preachy. The writing this issue reminded me of Mark Gruenwald's run on this title at it's best.

I'm still interested in how the Iron Nail is going to fit into the overall story. It's still not really clear how that's going to work at this point. I'm wondering what is behind that door he was going for. What is Weapon Minus?

My final thought about this issue is Jet Black. I'm worried about where this character is going after her conversation with the Falcon. Coming out of the Dimension Z story, I thought that she would learn to move away from her upbringing and become a hero. Now I'm not so sure as that scene gives the impression that the long years of influence her father had over her may just be too much to overcome. It was a good scene though because adding an element of unpredictability to a story is never a bad thing.

Jet black is going to bounce back and forth till her and steve bang. I mean really, why is she still wearing a bathing suit everywhere?

I'm more interested in the story revolving around the Iron Nail and Weapon Minus than I am in the story revolving around Cap and Jet at this point. Unfortunately, I'm not enjoying this arc as much as the previous arc but hopefully that will change.

I used to consider volume 4 of Cap (Marvel Knights) to be the worst run the character ever had, but this past year has made it hard to pick up the main Cap title.

As much I felt Bru overstayed his welcome near the end, I do miss him on the book, and as readers we were spoiled with having a good writer on Captain America that we really hadn't seen since some of the better volume 1 runs.

Your crazy, Remender has been awesome.

Agreed. I may not have been entirely thrilled with the way that it ended but Remender's first arc was fantastic!

Because you were wrong and I was (kinda) right? :P

I liked the art in this issue a lot. I'm really loving Pacheco's work. Might just be me though.

Nic Klein did the super art on this issue, not Pacheco :roll:

NO! :smt013 :P

As a whole, I thought that Remender's first arc was great, I just didn't like Sharon showing up at the last minute, shooting a child, and then making a boneheaded decision to sacrifice herself. It felt a little too convenient. Besides, I am not entirely convinced that I am wrong. 8)
