The time for the final showdown has come, but nothing is as it seems. As Captain America and Iron Man race to stop the cataclysm that Veronica Eden has put in motion, they realize that they may have missed a few red flags elsewhere... and an innocent person is about to
pay the price.

    Unzueta delivers some great art in this issue. There are some awesome action beats throughout the story and a fun tone to the art that was visually engaging. Read Full Review

    Bits and PiecesCaptain America/Iron Man #5 ends the mini-series somewhat neatly with great art, great action, and a complete ending that leaves the door open for more. That said, the great art and action are put up against a convoluted plan and confusing characters for a generally mixed arc. Read Full Review

    Captain America/Iron Man failed to live up to my expectations, but that may have more to do with what I was expecting from the title. Read Full Review

    The plot coasts to a satisfying if not surprising end. It's safeguarded on its journey by more consistently excellent art.

    The real treat is a pair of outstanding Cap speeches, almost back-to-back and both exquisitely scripted.

    On the other hand, creator's pet Veronica cops a cliffhanger "to be continued" ending that rather sours the resolution.

    This was a good series overall. Definitely improvable, though. I'm a big fan of philosophy in my comics, and this series had a bonus-sized serving. I'd have liked it to be a bit better integrated into the action, though.

    This is a pretty good finale to a miniseries that felt more unnecessary than fun. It seems like the writer had something to say about the bias in power structures on display in superhero comics, but at the end of the day, had to basically concede that it's just a necessary function of superhero comics. Which is okay, I guess. But if that's the grand answer - it is what it is, and we have to make the best of it - that's not very strong, no matter if it's coming from Captain America. But regardless of that, this miniseries often felt overwritten and all over the place. It's fun at times, but I can't help but feel like it's a placeholder for Captain America's editors to figure out what to do with the character.

    I really like the characterization of tony and cap. Also the 51 guy is nice, but the rest of the plot is not good at all
