Heh heh. I'll admit it, when I got this from Marvel, I was momentarily surpirsed. We all are pretty sure that someday Steve Rogers will come back. I'm in no rush, mind you. Cap has always been one of my top fav heroes. I even have his shield hanging on my wall. I do absolutely love what Ed Brubaker is doing with the comic. It's simply brilliant. I'm going to enjoy this ride as long as I can.
Captain America is dead…long live Captain America! It’s the story that impacted an entire generation and changed the world of comics forever—Captain America’s return! In Avengers Classic #4, experience the modern origin of Captain America like never before, in this re-mastered reprint of the seminal Avengers #4 and a brand new story from Captain America’s past! This all-new tale by writer Dwayne McDuffie (Fantastic Four) and artist Michael Avon Oeming (Powers) reveals a pivotal moment in Cap’s past—the quest to discover if Steve Rogers really is the legendary Captain America!
“As soon as the Sub-Mariner finds that block of ice with a man frozen inside, you can practically feel the seismic shift the world of comics was about to experience,” said editor Alejandro Arbona. “This Stan Lee and Jack Kirby milestone, a masterpiece of an issue, changed the Marvel Universe forever, and planted the seeds for stories we’re still telling today -- whether it’s Cap’s memories of the death of Bucky, the Avengers gelling as a team for the first time, Cap’s reputation as Marvel’s single greatest hero, or any of another myriad character moments. The ripples of this one story still shape the landscape of comics today. Worth the read, even if that’s all this issue featured -- but an all-new story by Dwayne McDuffie and Mike Oeming shows some of the difficulties Cap had to live with when he first woke up as a man out of time.”
Critics continue to love Avengers Classic, with Adam Chapman of Comixtreme.Com gushing, “This was a great issue, and I was glad I picked it up. I'm looking forward to what comes next in Avengers Classic.”
He’s the hero on everyone’s mind and now you can see just how Captain America joined the Avengers—and how he became the man he is today in Avengers Classic #4!
