    And this ladies and gents is why Ed Brubaker is the best comic book writer in the industry today. Hands down. I'll admit that I wasn't really overwhelmed by parts of this mini-series, but by the end I was hanging on EVERY page. Read Full Review

    This mini is further proof that things are a lot more interesting with Bucky keeping the Cap mantle and Steve Rogers staying at the head of SHIELD. I'm sure that the status will eventually be re-established (just as the Super-Soldier serum will eventually be duplicated) but, for the time being, this is the most interesting situation the character's been in for years Read Full Review

    In many ways this final issue lays all of the project's faults bare. If it wasn't made abundantly clear last issue, this concluding chapter definitely makes it obvious that Brubaker had no intention of truly exploring the ramifications of a villain recreating the super-soldier forum until later stories. What we're left with is a rather thin, action-dominated story in which Steve Rogers takes on the Machinesmith, a villain who isn't really capable of supporting a story on his own. Luckily Brubaker does do action-driven stories well, he again captures Rogers' voice capably and even throws in an interesting albeit brief exploration into the concept of artificial intelligence. But all those redeeming qualities don't make this issue, and this story, anything greater than it is on the surface: a thin, ultimately disappointing set-up for what's to come. Read Full Review
