    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero May 31, 2013

    Writer Rick Remender has showcased his brilliance for making this a sci-fi series, packed with enough action to keep us on our toes. His twist in this book is completely unexpected, paving the way for more Marvel U characters to jump in the mix in the fight against Zola, specifically the Avengers. Read Full Review

    Writer Rick Remender continues to twist the screws into Captain America with setback after painful setback, and readers get to see Rogers freeclimb, freefall, crash through a glass roof, and land on his shield " all in the span of a few pages " and just as the book hits its midpoint. This isn't Captain America and the Avengers " it's a solo battle pitting one man versus many " and the lonely climb to the top becomes even more forlorn when Rogers duels with Princess Jet Black and finally finds Ian.

    I enjoyed this comic, as usual.  However, it's been so long since I read issue #6, I didn't quite enjoy this story as much as I could have...  I didn't really remember everything that happened last issue...  That's what happens when you read like 200 comics a month!  Honestly, I probably should have read my review of issue #6 before I read this one, but that ship has sailed.  Still, I enjoyed this comic, and can't wait to see what happens when Cap realizes just who shot him.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere May 30, 2013

    While the whole thing goes from cheesy to overly serious in a way that is ambiguous in its intent, the action and the art more than makes up for it as Steve's adventure to save Ian from the clutches of Arnim Zola continues to be a fun ride. Read Full Review

    What the heck does Rick Remender have planned for Captain America? Cap is going on a crazy ride in this series and that's what makes it so interesting. Too often we tend to get almost predictable stories or arcs but with this, I have no idea what Remender has planned to end it all (well, I do have one theory but we don't need to get into that here). John Romita Jr's art is growing on me in this series. The inks by Hanna and Janson along with Dean White's glorious colors make the pages vibrant despite such a dour situation. The intensity of the story is building up and I'm on the edge of my seat, stuck waiting for the next issue. You have to love seeing a character's book shaken up from time to time. Read Full Review

    This book is really flying under the radar when it should be praised. Remenders Cap is incredibly both new and old. Theres many Marvel Now! titles that deserve your attention, but not at the expense of a Cap with a beard. Please, do it for the beard. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl May 29, 2013

    Then there's the matter of Dean White's colors, which normally lend any artist's pencils a realistic sheen. With Romita Jr.'s style of rounded features and extra big heads, hands,and chests, White's colors only work to point out how exaggerated and not realistic his character designs are. There are times when this isn't so bad, but it is noticeable, which only makes the art that much more uneven. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker May 30, 2013

    Captain America #7 is the beginning of the end of the Dimension Z travails, and it is succeeding in putting the freak Arnim Zola a lot higher on the Steve Rogers Shit List than he's ever been before, as the connection is now a deeply personal hatred. It remains to be seen whether or not we're going to get a much dirtier, more flawed version of Captain America when this is all over and done. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson May 31, 2013

    All in all, even though this issue didn't present much in the way of progression to the conclusion of the story arc, it was still compelling to see Rogers, in all his determination, strive to save his son. Hopefully, this will lead to more a more satisfying build up to the climax of the arc that doesn't feel just as slow paced. Remender clearly has a grasp of what makes Captain America an engaging character to read and being joined with Romita Jr. has brought his story to life. Let's just hope he sticks the landing.

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed May 30, 2013

    Overall, this was a solid issue. Remender keeps the plot moving through almost non-stop action, pausing only to give us the lovely father-son moment in the beginning of the issue, carried by Steves desperate, punctuated narration. Romita continues to deliver a surreal and nightmarish vision of Zolandia, one that is well-complemented by Whites enthralling color work. The only real fault with this issue was the overly operatic dialogue between Jet and Steve during their fight in the middle of the book, which really bogged everything down. Beyond that, this was a tight and engaging issue. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - George Marston May 29, 2013

    The problem with Captain America #7 is the same one that's plaguing the series et al. There are some really great moments, written with skill and depth, but they're surrounded by what comes across as filler, material designed to eat pages and expand the story rather than tell it. At the heart of Remender's Captain America is a story about a man learning what it means to be a father, and seeing in himself a way to right the wrongs he felt as a child. Unfortunately, on the surface, it's still about Cap plodding his way through Zola's world without much real direction and without enough consistency in the storytelling to justify the razor-thin plot.
