Feels weirdly similar / prefiguresBatman: Time and the Batman.

The stuff in the past is good.

But the twist that the gentlemanly historian (view spoiler) and he has to (view spoiler)

Interesting story, but if you aren't familiar with Demo already, it's a bit dull.

Protože načítám Thunderbolts od Ellise, rozhodl jsem se kouknout na tuhle
minisérii, kterou jsem tu měl k přečtení.

Baron Zemo, po svém napravení u Thunderbolts zachraňuje lidskou rasu a umírá.
Nebo to tak vypadá. Zemo totiž cestuje časem na začátek své pokrevní linie a je
postaven před otázku - lze napravit celou svou pokrevní linii? Nebo se lepšími stáváme
tím co činíme a ne tím jací jsme se narodili?

Mírně filozofující comics, který ukazuje že v rodokmenu baronetů Zemo si potrpěli na
písmeno H.
Holden Attradies
A pretty decent read, although if you are not interested in Baron Zemo there is little for you here as it really is just about him. The themes of the book (redemption, and what it takes to really redeem one's self) tie in very well with the Thunderbolts series. As far as the time travel aspect of the story goes, it was handled very well. There were no paradoxes created and the story touched upon the creation of them and Zemo trying to avoid that.

Tak jsem se konečně dokopal k této minisérii, kterou mám koupenou už nějakých X let. A bylo to lepší, než jsem čekal. Baron Zemo se ocitá v minulosti a musí si postupně projít celou historii jeho rodu (všichni Zemáci maj jméno na H, takže se to krásně plete) a přitom filosofuje o vládě, pokrevnosti a vůdcovství.

A proper time travel story. He visits history and finds that our recorded history isn't as infallible as we would like to believe.

This book gives a good send off for Zemo from the Thunderbolts and it is a bit of a shame he disappears for so long. I've not read his reappearance in Captain America but I heard rumblings that he comes back as his classic villain and that's a shame.
The premise of this series is somewhat of a cliched comic trope and the comic relies a little too much on narration. However, it is a very interesting look into the mind and heart of Zemo, fleshing him out as a character in interesting ways.

Zemo travels through time interacting with his ancestors. It's a decent story, if a little short, that really makes you believe that Zemo has reformed for the better. A good character based read.
