In Act Three the nefarious plans of the Red Skull are revealed which include several strategies chief among them bringing backc some twisted version of Captain America and creating an economic crisis. The usual crew shows up to fight against and for the Red Skull.

I found Act Three to be the best of all three though I would say the first which detailed the death of Steve Rogers (the original Cap) was arguably the most moving.

“Captain America #25 which depicted Steve Roger's death was the highest selling comic of March 2007 with preorder sales of 290,514 which was double the sales of the Mighty Avengers #1 in the same period. The Death of Captain America was reported in ABC News, where Bryan Robinsons paralleled the events to the Post-September 11 World and Iraq.” (Wiki)

The former two tales to this three part story were titled: “The Death of the Dream” and “The Burden Man Who Bought America”. All three tales were written by Ed Brubaker. Artwork by Steve Epting, Mike Perkins and a few others.

There's a script in back with some former designs of how the new Captain America would look.

ARTWORK PRESENATION: B plus; CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: B plus to A minus; STORY/PLOTTING: B plus to A minus; ACTION SCENES: B plus to A minus ; CAPTAIN AMERICA FOCUSES: B plus to A minus; WHEN READ: mid September 2012; OVERALL GRADE: B plus to A minus.
