The movie creating juggernaut of Marvel is back at it again today to give the world the first image and the official synopsis of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Read who Captain will be teaming with during this sequel after the jump!
Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Winter Soldier #15 by Jason Latour and Nic Klein.
Or – “What Might Have Been…”
This book is another recent example of something that should have been, in my eyes, more popular that it was. Spinning out of the Fear Itself mega-crossover, featuring the man who successfully took up the shield of Captain America fighting against his own past, written by Ed Brubaker, it seemed like a sure thing. So, what’s going on with Bucky and Natasha? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “Featuring Gates McFadden As The Black Widow!”
I’m gonna be honest: After Fear Itself #7.1, I wasn’t entirely sure that I wanted to follow this series, even though I had been excited about it in the beginning. My trust in Ed Brubaker overcame my dislike of awkward retcons, and I found enough potential in #1 to come back this time around. So, what if there weren’t only one?
Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Winter Soldier #1 that you can check out, after the jump.
Yes, Captain America is still dead, and from the cover, Bucky/Winter Soldier may not be far behind.
Take the jump for a sneak peek of Captain America #31.
Yes, Captain America is still dead, but his friends are out for revenge. Winter Soldier (aka Bucky Barnes) finds himself up against a Mighty Avenger and Crossbones.
Marvel promises Captain America #30 will conclude the Death of Captain America story and leave your jaw on the floor. (psst… please let us know if your jaw is really on the floor)
To loosen that mandible, Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the issue.
Or – “The Only People Who’ll REALLY Stay Dead Are Thomas & Martha Wayne…”
It’s an exciting world right now in comics… For the first time in years, it seems like change is occuring organically, as part and parcel of real stories, with real character development, rather than as a sales ploy. Even though I don’t necessarily appreciate everything Marvel is DOING with Civil War, ya gotta give them credit for what they’re trying to do: Something Different. That’s the raison d’etre for this issue, not just as a Civil War tie-in, but as a statement that finally puts to rest one of fandom’s old chestnuts, the concept of “Bucky Dead.”
