In this one, Captain America is like a rash that you just can’t get rid of no matter how hard you try. It keeps coming back again and again no matter what you do. Powder? Ointment? Epson salt-bath? Re-setting the timeline? Sucking out the Super-Soldier serum? It’s persistent. And itchy.

Mixed metaphors aside, this in one of the more interesting Marvel Premium Editions. It’s Mark Waid* firmly in the center of his Captain America run. Sure it’s straight out of the 1990’s and has a lot of the overbl

Captain America always was my most favorite superhero, and no other Captain America villain could hold a candle to the Cap's number one archrival The Red Skull, so one would think naturally I would be super excited about this book. I was, The Red Skull is finally back and he's more powerful than ever. Almost too powerful...Red has unlimited god-like power. He can change anything with his thoughts, with the only downside that it requires his complete focus or the changes will break. I suppose tha ...more
The first issue in the collection saves this book. It is a Red Skull story that is fascinating. The climax where cap finally beats the bad guy was a good study of Cap's character. Kuberts are was okay. A lot of the dialog was 1990's cheesiness. Sharon Carter just was not used right either. This may illustrate why Cap has had so many series, a lack of consistent storytelling.
This one was nothing to write home about.Largely set in the future and posed a lot of what ifs?Red Skull was very prominent in the book as was the Watcher.Decent action sequences but the artwork didnt really grab me.

In this book Mark Waid brings back the Red Skull. Admittedly, this is the second time in 3 1/2 years for a return of the Red Skull story (and the second story done by Waid) but still this story has got some unique features in the collected issues (Captain America Volume 3, Issues 14-19).

Issue 14 is a fascinating work in black and white (with the exception of RS' Skull) as the Red Skull finds himself in his own personal hell inside the Cosmic Cube until Kang the Conqueror lets the Red Skull out (

Number 60 out of 349 on my all time book list.

Follow the link below to see my video review:
Este tomo finaliza la etapa de Mark Waid a cargo del Capitán América. Disfruté mucho la serie, teniendo en cuenta que el Capitán nunca fue de mis personajes favoritos pero Waid hace un buen laburo con sus guiones y la historia nunca aburre. El arte de Andy Kubert tampoco está nada mal.

El número dedicado a Cráneo Rojo es de lo mejorcito del tomo, junto a toda la historia situada en un futuro lejano consecuencia del regreso de este villano tan despreciable.

Que más da? Le voy a dar otra oportunidad

Good ol' Cap against the Red Skull. Never a fan of patriotism, but it can still make a good yarn.
