As Heroes and Villains clash we learn ultimately what the fate of Steve Rogers truely was when he was assasinated as he strangely finds hismelf relieving key moments in his past. Can Cap find a way back to his friends and stop Red Skull? Will Skull ultimately turn one of Americas most respected heroes into a menace?
Captain America Reborn is a great read for any fans of Marvel or Comic Books alike. Though the whole 'Returning from the Dead' Shtick has been used before by the likes of Batman, Superman, Hawkeye etc Marvel clearly wanted this to be a great event seeing as it marked the return of Cap. What we get is a story with numerous plot twists, great action which is brilliantly drawn which ultimately leads to a final confrontation with Red Skull's forces in Washington. It was clear that Marvel fans wanted Rogers back though Bucky Barnes did do a good job stepping in his old friends place. The book is great and for newer fans the flashbacks scenes of Captain America act like a small comic history lesson, not to mentioned as well the last few pages have a collage of every Captain America Comic leading up to this book.
I got hooked on the Cap story telling during Civil War and enjoyed learning his supporting cast. And when Cap 'died' the supporting cast grew on me enough to enthuiastically buy the books, eager to what happens next.
Anyway, when Cap got 'reborn' my interest died because everything suddenly went wrong.Bucky [my Cap!] and Sharon Carter became the main characters and I loved Carter becoming a really intereting, determined character. We never got to know Carter on her own before and I thoroughly liked her fleshing out. As soon as Steve re-appears all this is lost and it is dramatically aweful how she becomes a 1D 'I love Steve' 'Rescue Me' fodder at the end of this book and the immediate books that followed.
So, at the end of Cival War, a mind-controlled Carter shoots Cap and he dies. In the road to Reborn, many months down the line. Carter looks at the gun she used and says 'this isn't a normal gun!' - and that's it. Some how this gun just seperated his psyche from his body and and his soul or whatever has been stuck in some time travelling limbo somewhere. . . WTH?
It's accepted just like that. There's NO explenation as to what the gun could do or how it could do it. It just 'isn't a normal gun' !!
When Cap's psyche returns to his body and he comes back to life, there is hardly any surprise or any emotional shock or relief from the supporting characters. His best friends haven't seen him and belived him dead for months and yet there's hardly any emotion from them when he returns, there's just a one of the lads 'oh yeah that's out Cap' attitude. . .Read more ›
