The other big hoopla news of late was the release of Steve Roger's new Captain America title. The first issue caused quite a stir with the last page reveal of a hidden loyalty/agenda of Steve, which looking back on the character's long history and success, makes little to no sense. The following issue hints that this switch may in fact be due in some fashion to the machinations of a Cosmic Cube.
Still, whether this was done for shock value or not, it put me off the title. I've never been the biggest reader of Cap and based on the prior previews of this title, I was rather looking forward to reading it. The main story throughout #1 was decent however the last surprise reveal just totally took me out of the book. To the point where, in spite of it's causes, I didn't care about reading anymore of it. It may have been a case concerning, of all the plot ideas you can have for Cap, this was the more prominent? (Of course, I think it also ties into my underlying theory of Marvel trying to inject more elements from their media ventures into the books. Or has Bucky always look like Sebastian Stan and I've never noticed?)
