(Triggers: multiple mentions of suicide, with a character actually being encouraged to kill himself and wanting to die. He doesn't, for what that's worth. Also trigger warnings for imprisonment involving prolonged sensory deprivation and starvation--while those things aren't among the trigger tags, I can certainly imagine how they could be triggers for anybody having gone through certain ordeals. Finally, there is some dialogue here which could potentially bring back memories of child abuse.)

One page from Captain America #367, two pages from a five page backup story in Captain America #369 and seven pages from Captain America #370.

Scans have already been posted of Magneto vs. the Red Skull (or to be more accurate, Magneto hunting the Skull while having to deal with every obstacle and distraction the latter can throw at him). The links to those images seem to be broken, and I thought of posting new images, but decided to play it safe and wait until I got the okay from a mod here. For now, I will just post what happened afterwards.

To briefly recap: after meeting the Red Skull, Magneto wants to know if he's the same Skull who was with the Nazis in World War Two, which the Skull admits. Even though the Skull didn't actually run the death camps, he still willingly served Hitler and Magneto wants to know what he has to say for himself. The Skull stalls by giving him a "We're not really so different" speech, since both of them want to see their respective "master race" inherit the Earth, before trying to kill him. Long story short, it doesn't work, the Skull tries to get away but fails, and the issue ends with this page:

Marvel have a LOT of publicity going for their Guardians of the Galaxy characters, and with the likes of Chris Pratt (who kept the Star Lord costume so he could make Hospital visits to sick kids in it), some very good PR, so I can only applaud them for this

AVENGERS #32 in an ORIGINAL SIN tie-in, but doesn't have much to do with ORIGINAL SIN. After that Watcher's eye knowledge bomb, Captain America remembers the Illuminati mind-wiped him. He goes after Tony with some Avengers, then the Time Gem appears and sends the group into the future. This happens twice, each time with some team members getting sent back to the present.

Hi folks!

Captain America has fought many enemies over the years, and a surprising number of them have also been "Captain America." These twisted reflections of our hero represent America's fear that we aren't who we want to be, the best of the America spirit. Instead, they are distorted by hatred and greed, the America we do not want to be.



This is the story of one such man, Fifties Cap. This story is from Captain America #155 in 1972; six pages of twenty.

The man who would be Steve Rogers )

Not being American I don't necessarily feel qualified to post this, but sometimes you just can't help yourself

AVENGERS #31 ties into ORIGINAL SIN, without having much to do with ORIGINAL SIN. The Time Gem is sending a group of Avengers to the future. As before, they encounter a group of that time's Avengers who knew they were coming. This time, they are 422 years in the future. Captain America and Black Widow are gassed and grabbed by the "Avengers" while Thor, Hyperion and Starbrand are kept in a large clear box. (Thor can hold his breath a long time, while Hyperion and Starbrand don't need to breathe, even though Starbrand didn't know this.)

Cap's bad dreams. )

AVENGERS #30 is an ORIGINAL SIN crossover. In issue 29 Captain America remembered his mindwipe and that Tony Stark and the Illuminati were going to build a "world destroying" weapon to save Earth and all of Reality. Tony and a bunch of armors fought Cap and a group of Avengers. And then the Time Gem appeared and popped them all 48 years into the future, because Why Not?

J.M. DeMatteis wrote "The Death of the Red Skull" saga that went to CAPTAIN AMERICA #300. CAPTAIN AMERICA #294 covers a small but important part, where Steve Rogers wants to talk to Bernie Rosenthal about their relationship.

The art is by Paul Neary, who gives everything a very strong Steve Ditko vibe.

Bernie knows melodramatic acting )

I picked up a few regular comics as well as the free ones on Free Comic Book Day. After the previous post where young Nova asks some semi-relevant questions, I noticed that he's doing it again in Original Sin #0.



As the new kid on the block, I guess it's only fair that he gets to be the viewpoint character for expository information.

This a one-shot that's available for free on the Marvel comics app or on Marvel Unlimited. I thought it was an interesting response to the more 'cynical' approach to superheroes and the criticism of "How come they're not stopping poverty/war/disease, etc?"
