    CAPTAIN AMERICA #43
    Written by ED BRUBAKER
    Pencils by LUKE ROSS
    Cover by STEVE EPTING

    Bucky has survived his first major trial as the new Captain America, but now a villain from his past - both as Bucky in WW2 and as the Winter Soldier during the Cold War - has come to the U.S. and he'll have to face his history just as he's finding his feet in the present. The beginning of a gripping war and espionage tale, with some familiar faces for long-term Cap readers, as the New Captain America moves further into the Marvel U. And for this action-packed three-part story, award-winning Cap writer Ed Brubaker is joined by acclaimed artist Luke Ross (Jonah Hex, Samurai).

    Yes! More Bucky as Cap! Fantastic!

    He exaggerated Chase's size for comedic effect.

    This is the press release/summary
    Danny races to discover why all the previous Iron Fists except Orson Randall have died at age 33. But Danny’s just turned 33 himself, and a mysterious man with abilities too weird to fathom has shown up out of nowhere to kill him. So, yeah, that might have something to do with it. What killed every other Iron Fist, this one guy? Nah, couldn’t be. Unless...is this ultra-powerful man more than just a man? And how did the last Iron Fist, Orson Randall, dodge the inescapable fate that apparently killed all 65 of his predecessors? Don’t miss this blood-chilling chapter in the ever-growing mythos of THE IMMORTAL IRON FIST!

    Who the fuck writes this shit?

    I don't care about the reasons (and, honestly, I wouldn't be willing to bet on that being the reason. He always draws Chase like a giant from what I've seen). It looks bad to me and therefore I do not like it.

    Would they let a brain-damaged man join the military?

    And wiki says he's not friends with Peter anymore, so there's that.

    Yeah, I think it was something like, "He's a gym teacher at the same school Peter is teaching at, but he's been brain damaged somehow, and he doesn't remember that he and Peter are friends, and he only remembers that he should bully Peter".

    It was not Peter David's finest hour.

    Yeah, but he was in a coma before then, and the resulting brain damage caused him to forget his previous relationship with Peter Parker beyond what happened in high school.

    None of that's really important, but I liked the idea of Peter and Flash as friends in the present and would rather not see that omitted from the new status quo along with everything else.
