    Some clinical trials do pay people for their time, some don’t. In all cases people are carefully vetted and made aware, if they are in a blind study, that a placebo is possible. And some studies...

    True. And Brubaker is far from the only writer to say it. Roger Stern refers to Steve as a New Deal Democrat. And Gruenwald wrote this...

    Cap was FAR from being the one to act like the biggest jerkass in Civil War, particularly as he wasn’t the one committing human rights atrocities in the name of ‘security’. But regardless, Cap came...

    This is also true of fan perception. It's interesting to me, as a Cap fan, how many fan views of the character, particularly those who don't read the Cap title, get the character completely wrong,...

    I think this one rotates. The current most feared, according to today's Avengers issue, is...

    You mean recently? Cheer's cameo in Coates run? She was shown to be a part of the conspiracy with Lukin/Selene, et al in Captain America #14...

    Yes. I saw. And it ticked me off for multiple reasons, not the least of which is the fact that Cap's creator, Jack Kirby, was a WW2 soldier himself. Who almost lost his legs to frost bite during said...

    LOL. As opposed to Gruenwald... “OMG Bernie, I may have accidentally killed this bad dude when we were fighting. I hate myself now.”
  10. Yes, that’s an excellent way to put it.

    Yes, that’s an excellent way to put it.

    Thought I’d give a brief rundown of why I feel the Madbomb story would have been a better fit for a Cap film than Civil War and what I mean by I enjoyed the story for the political undertones...

    *shrug* Not so weird. We all have our preferences largely based on our initial exposure. For example, I could never figure out why people regarded Brubaker as the second coming. But my first exposure...

    And speaking of Joe Simon, for any Cap fans who may be interested, Joe Simon’s granddaughter, Megan Margulies, has a book coming out this August on Joe Simon. She wrote an article about her upcoming...

    Still my favorite thing Mark Waid wrote, and considering I love all of Waid’s Cap, that is saying something.

    Kirby on page with Cap (with Joe Simon asking “who is it?”)...

    Definitely Steve Rogers, most respected in the Marvel universe/MU general public and my heart.

    Actually, originally Captain America 3 was going to be Jack Kirby's Madbomb story. This was confirmed both by the Russos to Entertainment Weekly, which you can read here:

    Third this. Gruenwald’s Cap run was amazing.

    Granted I love Waid, too. And Gruenwald had a couple of misses (that drug story arc *facepalm*) but he wrote the character for TEN YEARS, the...

    The problem here is that mantle passing, as a practice, goes against psychology used to gain Marvel (or any entertainment company) an audience to begin with: i.e. to sell a character a company has to...

    Yes. DeMatteis also addresses it in his run (early 1980’s). But since it’s been a part of Steve’s identity for as long as I can remember, I’m probably forgetting at least half a dozen other writers...

    The Revolutionary War ancestor was retconned out of existence (they haven’t been mentioned since Waid’s Sentinel of Liberty run in the late 1990’s). Steve is first generation American born, the son...

    My personal beef with how the Captain America mantle has been handled is that Steve has to suffer/be taken off the board/maimed (re:aged up) for it to happen. Despite the fact that Brubaker is a...

    *sigh* This again. I’m so tired. The “all people from the 40’s had to have been racist” argument falls apart when you consider the fact that two of the reigning kings of using fiction/pop culture to...

    My go-to whenever I'm feeling down is Mark Waid's Captain America: Man Out of Time. I love the optimism in it and the progress of someone (Steve) going through significant trauma but showcasing not...
