The problem with the great American hero, Captain America, is that the comic usually sucks. What does this say about the American dream? Anyway, the two volume Winter Soldier has a lot going for it: The Red Skull, a Cosmic Cube, crazy Soviets, terrorists, the rewriting of history, what can go wrong? It was probably the best Cap story I ever read, yet it still wasn’t terrific. No wonder that bastard Quesada killed him.
