    Well, about SpiderMan. I took a deal with the devil that I’d never ever read any SpiderMan issue until they retcon OMD. It’s been forever, but I do not regret my decision. It’s a wise decision for both my mental health and wallet

    I’m surely checking out Cap though. Thank you! .
    You're welcome, and I can understand your decision. I'm still waiting for One More Day to finally be dealt with, but in the meantime, I'm happy enough that Peter and Mary Jane are back together. That being said, with how Mephisto keeps getting teased in other Spider-Man-related books and spinoffs, I'm anticipating there'll be some resolution to that debacle eventually.

    In any event, I hope you enjoy reading Ta-Nehisi Coates's Captain America. A TPB collecting the first six issues is out now and issue 11 just came out last Wednesday or so.

    Them being together isn’t enough. I made a deal with the devil because I look up to SpiderMan but now I regret it and I can’t breakaway from the deal. It will cost me my soul. Hit me up when OMD is dealt with and Petey is married again.

    I am hyped for the current Captain America run, I heard nothing but positive feedbacks so I am intrigued. Thank you!

    You're welcome, and I actually do agree with you that Peter/MJ being back together isn't enough as long as the specter of OMD hangs over their relationship like the Sword of Damocles. That definitely will have to be addressed sooner or later, preferably with Peter and MJ reclaiming their marriage and punching Mephisto's lights out. Get Johnny Blaze, current King of Hell, to help out if possible/necessary.

    Jeez, it’s been more than a decade. I don’t think it will ever be addressed. I won’t get to see the day it’s retconned (

    My apologies as well. To tie this back to Captain America, I personally think he would have been a better choice to mentor Spider-Man in the MCU than Iron Man. That exchange between them in Captain America: Civil War was something I wanted to see expanded a lot more than it was. Oh, and who can forget that wonderful speech in the ASM tie-in to the original comic where he quoted Mark Twain regarding what you're supposed to do when you know in your heart that what you're doing is right even when the world, public opinion, the media, and the politicians are telling you otherwise, ending with the words, "No, you move"? Come to think of it, I did like how the speech was adapted in Captain America: Civil War as something Peggy Carter passed on to her niece Sharon, who was using the same words as part of the eulogy at Peggy's funeral, thus inspiring Steve not to go ahead and sign the Sokovia Accords.

    Also, cosigning cc008's post. Nothing against Waid, but he (or rather, Marvel) played it too safe with Cap after the fallout from Secret Empire, and I liked that Coates was willing (and so far, able) to address that head-on. The great Captain America runs have always asked tough, hard, even painful questions about what America really means and stands for and who gets to define what America is, and so far, Coates is doing well in that sense.
    As there’s no thread for Cap #11 yet I’ll comment about it here.

    Yes, you’re right that Coates is addressing what America is, and addressing Secret Empire. I especially like that Coates referenced Steve Rogers consorting with the KGB during the war against the Nazi’s, and admitting it was wrong, but hey... the devil you know. It’s an admission I hadn’t seen before in a Cap book, Steve admitting his sins like that. Steve seems to have taken it to heart quite strongly. To me, I always wondered at Cap and Bucky associating with the Russian army during the war, at what Cap felt about the Cold War and allegiances, who Cap knew in Russia in the Silver Age, and of course, Bucky being made into the Winter Soldier by the Russians. These political connections are so incestuous between Russia, Cap, and Bucky, and nobody has bothered to look into it to any sort of degree. Lukin is the key here, because he inherited the Winter Soldier, and Lukin is still alive here, now.

    But I like that American history, with regards to Marvel continuity, does not shy away from uncomfortable truths. The more you can admit you are not all a bed of roses, the better you can speak the truth. Know who you are, then you can judge others.

    That’s true. I wonder why they chose Iron Man to mentor Spidey and not Cap.

    Bruh! That quote was brilliant, really love it!

    Given the Russian connection, I wonder if that ever played into any sort of ambiguous feelings Steve might've had about Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow, in light of her being an ex-KGB operative herself. Did he ever wonder if he was repeating the mistakes of the past by working with her, let alone developing a friendship with her?

    It sure was. And they probably picked Iron Man based not only on the actual comics leading up to Civil War at the time, but also because in terms of scientific ingenuity and intelligence, Peter did have the capacity to rival Tony. While that would be a reasonable assessment, I always figured Peter and Steve had more in common, both growing up poor and bullied in New York, but not backing down from those bullies, especially after gaining great power and using for the sake of others.
