Contemplator - Watcher Underling: Oh, great immenseness! Someone is stealing frozen Captain America’s from many time lines and messing with a future reality. What ever shall we do?

The Watcher: I am getting my head waxed, you deal with it.

So he does.

First he recruits five random Captain America’s from various points in the timeline at various points in different realities.

Bucky Barnes – because he was the then current Captain America. You can distinguish him in this comic because he has the bioni

The idea behind the book could work: Bringing together the World War II Captain America Steve Rogers, the then-modern day Captain America Bucky Barnes, former Captain America US Agent, the MC2 Universe Character American Dream, and Commander from the 25th Century and you have the Captain America Corps formed across time and space to fight a foe that is kidnapping Captain America's frozen body from several universes. This story could work, and with Roger Stern writ it, it should work.

But it doesn

This shouldn't work. It's a story about 5 characters who are fundamentally the same in powers, costume and ethos. It's a time travel story so you have a reasonable idea where this is going. It has one slender tie to what would have been current Marvel continuity. It is, in short, predictable and unimportant.

But, it does work. Despite the similarities all the Captain America corps are distinct individuals. Despite the time travel and lack of links to present continuity, it is nicely tied to what

How much is one Captain America worth? Roger Stern explores some historical meddling with his 5-part miniseries on the Captain America Corps. When the frozen body of Steve Rogers begins disappearing from realities, 5 Captains are brought together to unravel the mystery. Bucky Barnes, John Walker as the US Agent, the pre-WWII Steve Rogers, MC2's American Dream, and the futuristic Commander A are united to avert cosmic destruction. As they track down the meddler, this new team of Captains uncover ...more

This week several Captain America fans have felt that the best way to honour his legacy is to make death threats towards a writer over developments in a story barely begun. Here's a reminder of how Cap's influence is meant to manifest, as he's united with subsequent carriers of his torch to battle a vaguely proto-Secret Wars threat to the multiverse. I mean yes, it's terrible - a confusion of Caps fighting anti-Caps, identity reveals that invite the response 'Who?', and a general sense of a ...more

Someone has started removing all the Captains America from the multiverses, and it's effecting all of time and space. One of the Watcher's guys, Tath Ki, recruits five Captains America: Steve in 1942, Bucky in current day, US Agent from the 50s, American Dream (Shannon Carter) from the next generation and Commander A, from the 25th century, to figure out who's doing it, reverse it and save the world. It was a surprisingly engaging adventure with some neat tie-ins, and I liked the two future ...more

This is a very good Captain America stand-alone story. It brings together five iterations of Cap (the original Steve Rogers from 1941, the contemporary Bucky version, Shannon Carter (!) as a next-gen, John Walker from the WCA a few years ago, and a 25th century Commander A), trying to restore reality and facing off against still more (evil and misguided) versions of the character. There are some fun alternate-Avenger cameos, too. The art is quite nice, with some interesting detail and layouts, ...more

Got it out of the library, as I'm a total sucker for prismatic superhero crap where there's loads of variations on the one character. This was an okayyy read that sadly had no real compelling plot. Kept expecting there to be some surprise reveal or something, but there never was.

Oh well! I enjoyed the future Captain America, and I have a soft spot for The USAgent, who is a total asshole.

More importantly, there's a slight backup strip with AMAZING art by Brendan McCarthy. He crops up surprisingly

I enjoyed this story as a standalone. The story was put together well and flowed (somewhat) naturally. I think the most intriguing character is the Captain America from the 25th century. I would love to read some tales with him in them. I believe this story takes place around the time frame right before The Trial of Captain America.

Despite not understanding the plot (Captain America disappears in other dimensions, which changes the present of this dimension, so the Captain Americas from different times of this dimension are removed from time to stop it (!?)) this is a fun book. Nonsense, of course, but fun.
