It's ok.

Bru is GOD on this book, but it still doesn't interest me that much. Not much of a Solo Book Guy (prefer the Team Books - JLA, Titans, X-Men, etc.)

I thought the Red Skull's plot was really awesome.......triggering an economic collapse of the United States.

That's so much more interesting than the usual Cosmic Cube stories.

I cannot wait for the next issue

It's been a quality read, but I find myself thinking that they shouldn't have put Bucky in a Cap suit.

I'm loving everything about this book. I agree with you Melon. It's agood to see an evil plot that is not centered around the cosmic cube. It seems more "real." And Bucky kicks ass as Cap.

When Cap and Iron man relaunched out of Avengers Disassembled, I picked up Iron Man and continued to ignore Cap. Three months in, Cap was getting these phenomenal reviews and Iron Man was getting these phenomenal delays so I picked up the first three issues and read them on the train. Cap has been non-stop pure excellence, and the Red Skull is fast becoming a favourite villain of mine. Doom? Pah!

I totally agree.

When I read the latest issue and they show the news anchors reporting on everything going on (the market collapsing, people losing their homes, the cost of fuel sky rocketing, the riots and protests, etc) it seemed like a really cool, complex plot.

So much more interesting than the usual supervillain plots.

I think it'll take me a while to get used to Bucky as Cap, but I like where it's going so far.

And the gun kinda makes sense, considering it's Bucky.

I just love how you can tell that Brubaker has had this worked out since the first issue. He's, without a doubt, my favorite writer right now.

Aside from the riots part, aren't pretty much all those other things happening today in the US?

It's reaaaalllly exaggerated. I think the book mentioned that the Dow was at its lowest point in 40 years which is not true at all (that would be a drop of almost 10,000 points). We are not in a recession from a technical standpoint either. What we are going through now was really amped up for dramatic effect.

I don't think it was supposed to be an accurate depiction of what's going on in real life.

What triggered the collapse in the comic was the Kronas Corporation going down. I think Brubaker took some real life elements and then made everything a million times worse, but all in the context of a fictional super-corporation falling apart and the impact it had.

It made for a much more interesting villain plot than the usual cosmic cube thing they always do with the Red Skull.

I don't think it was meant to be accurate either. Just a balls out amplification of current events. Which is whay I liked it overall. There are better ways of taking out the US than with planes, tanks, or cosmic cubes.

It also kind of takes Captain America back to his Great Depression era roots. The US is down and needs a hero - enter Captain America.

Captain America is one of the best, if not the best, books Marvel publishes. 8)

Well, think about it. The power of the human mind can do almost anything, look at the SCIENTIFICALLY DOCUMENTED effect of prayer on healing.

Now, figure there's enough people reading about a fictional character, with a fictional GOD CUBE which can do anything, including breaching the walls of reality.

How do you know such a thing couldn't lead to OUR reality? It's entirely possible on some level of WEIRD. :D
