Cloak and dagger/spy stuff and Cap just doesn't work with me - but then I was raised on DeMatteis' Cap run - Cap doesn't get batter than that.
I thought his weapon (and cookware) of choice was a shield
I agree to an extent. The spy stuff is cool and shit, but I've always thought that Cap works best on the front lines leading the charge. That being said, the secret mission stories are still good and I like that the character can function in almost any capacity as a hero. He's a super-soldier so he really can do everything.
I really liked Cap's role in the Ultimates even if Millar made him a bit dickish in the comics.
