We all saw this coming. With the news that Steve Rogers, now devoid of his super-soldier serum, would be giving the mantle of Captain America to his long-time pal The Falcon, it was only a matter of time before the comic book series rebooted yet again to a number 1 issue.

For the uninitiated, let me get you up to speed. Captain America is a super soldier, who fought in WWII, was frozen in ice, and revived in modern times to lead the Avengers. Recently, he got the super soldier serum sucked out of him in a fight, because comics. This has left him a frail old man, but an old man with the skills and battle knowledge that he has acquired over the last half of century. Deadpool is another super soldier, of sorts, made stronger by the Weapon X program, the same one that bonded adamantium to Wolverine. He also breaks the fourth wall, a lot, and knows full well he is a comic book character. Now, on to this issue! [Read more…] about DEATH OF WOLVERINE Deadpool and Captain America – ADVENTURE!

Rick Remender’s run on Captain America has been an interesting, but sometimes frustrating read since it began. The first arc, a ten issue story that put Steve Rogers into a hellish plane called Dimension Z, was fantastic from start to finish. Making Rogers an adoptive father while at the same time trying to survive in a hostile environment that is continuously under attack by Arnim Zola’s mutant army made for a fun read. However, the rather depressing ending was only the beginning of what would become a running theme in this run, making Steve Roger’s life absolute hell. During the second and third arcs, things continued to get worse and worse for Steve as his reputation takes a big hit, he is blamed for harming America’s standing with the rest of world, and his faith in S.H.I.E.L.D. is all but shattered.
