    From Dimension Z to Dr. Mindbubble this series has shown that there are no shortages of interesting Captain America stories to be told, and Remender has proven it once again with #21. Overall, this issue was nearly perfect. It was met with minor drawbacks that many comics suffer from, like the lack of story actually told, but where there was a lack of story progression there was an abundance of fantastic action. Even if this issue ended too abruptly, its still clear it has to set up for further stories, which are surely to be as action-packed as this one. However, it wouldn't be a terrible change of pace if one issue were to be more plot-heavy as readers will surely get their fill of action here. Whether you loved the action here or are in need of more story development, there is no denying that the ending of this issue will be a shock to most, leaving much anticipation for what comes next.

    With the conclusion of "The Iron Nail," I am truly at a loss as to what comes next. I did not see Remender ending this story in this manner, and the potential story paths beyond the final page seem daunting. Remender set out to shake things up a bit, and he certainly has. Steve Rogers is definitely going to change in reaction to the developments of "The Iron Nail" -- now, it's up to Remender to show readers what those changes will be. Read Full Review

    Captain America #21 may not be the best in the series, but the art team remains killer and the book takes us in an interesting direction. Read Full Review

    Rick Remender might be leaving it all out on the court over in Uncanny Avengers, but he's really slipping in Captain America. The conclusion to Iron Nail and the Gungnir's story is lifeless. Iron Nail proves to be an uninteresting, single-minded enemy and the implications of the ending are greater than the story that got us there. Read Full Review
