IT IS WINTER IN AMERICA.For over 70 years, he has stood in stalwart defense of our country and its people. But in the aftermath of Hydra’s takeover of the nation, Captain America is a figure of controversy, carrying a tarnished shield…and a new enemy is rising! Who are the Power Elite? And how do they intend to co-opt and corrupt the symbol that is Captain America?
[su_quote cite=”Matthew’s Thoughts”]I think the largest issue with this book is that it’s a sequel to the Nick Spencer run, but we’ve had six or seven months of another sotry in between. The political commentary here is okay (and well-written, not to mention overdue, given Marvel’s recent run of tone-deaf ideological moments) but it’s not entirely successful as a first issue for me.
Also, the cover is really, truly butt-ugly.
[/su_quote][su_quote cite=”Stephen’s Thoughts”]The trust in Captain America has been broken, and though it wasn’t his fault, Steve Rogers has to figure out a way to earn the trust of the people once again. If this issue isn’t an alagory for what is going on right now, then I don’t know what is. By the way, Captain America has always been political, and though some may not agree with the politics of Captain America, they are there, and they can be learned from. Also, the cover is just fine.[/su_quote]
