    Lame.

    Since when does Cap slug people just because they disagree with him?

    Lame, lame, lame.

      I 110% completely agree. It felt completely out of character when I was reading that scene. With how the fight was started and ended it just didn’t “feel” like how Cap would have dealt with the situation at all.

      ….and we can’t even blame the skrulls for this massive epic crossover…

      Its Wolverine, don’t like 90% of his conversations devolve into fighting anyway. Maybe Captain has just know him long enough to get straight to the point.

      In this context, he seems to be slugging Logan to stop him from murdering a teenage girl… One could make the argument that it’s perfectly within his character, I’d say.

    I agree that the punch is totally out of character for Cap, but then again, since when have team-up books every been anything more than finding some far-fetched or lame excuse to get two heroes to slug it out with each other?

      Agreed.

      Matthew, I get why he (supposedly) did it but it’s clearly forced for the sake of conversation. Cap wouldn’t initiate violence to try to engender diplomacy. That makes no sense to anyone…except in the WWE Universe.

    It is lame, but I hope Cap beats the snot out of him.
