This seems to be a whole lot of repeated themes and elements from which there is NO ESCAPE.

After loving, absolutely loving over 50 issues of his Cap run, the last two collections have both left me unsatisfied.

Following "Siege" and "Captain America: Reborn", Ed Brubaker takes the Captain America title into a new world order in this latest collection in his landmark run. The Heroic Age is underway, and Brubaker is joined by artist Jackson "Butch" Guice to bring the next story in the saga of James "Bucky" Barnes, the new Captain America. The new story also sees the return of a longtime Captain America foe, the 13th Baron Zemo, who has spent the last several years in the pages of "Thunderbolts" developing into more of an anti-villain. The resulting story is good, and promises intriguing future developments, though it isn't Brubaker's best work. Spoilers follow.

The new Heroic Age means a lot of changes for Bucky. Steve has returned, but he's not Captain America, leaving Bucky to continue to fill that spot. Steve's presence in the series, as well as that of his girlfriend Sharon, has declined significantly, leaving Bucky, Natasha/Black Widow, and Sam/Falcon to carry most of the story. Bucky is also experiencing guilt following the previous "Two Americas" story that ended with him killing the rogue 50s Captain America, who looked exactly like Steve. And now, after uncovering the identity of the new Captain America, Baron Zemo returns to target him. Zemo's plans are intricate and masterfully designed to push his buttons, and in the end Zemo manages to exploit Bucky's greatest weakness, the legacy of his time as the Winter Soldier in the service of the Soviet Union. This is just the beginning of a new leg in Cap's story.

Brubaker continues his excellent characterization of Bucky, a noble but conflicted hero who can still be tweaked a little too easily by playing on his emotions.

When the next volume of Captain America arrived yesterday (courtesy of Forbiddenplanet co uk), I started reading it and found I couldn't remember what had lead up to it, so I went back and re-read this one. I remember that at the time I hadn't thought much of the story, but it has improved on re-reading (or more likely, I am in a more receptive frame of mind).

For those who came in late, Bucky Barnes, Captain America's partner during World War 2, presumed dead in the explosion that put Cap in suspended animation until modern times, was actually rescued by a Russian submarine, and put into suspended animation. Brainwashed and brought out every now and then as an assassin - the Winter Soldier - he was finally able to escape control, and after the death of Steve Rogers, he took on the role of Captain America. After Steve Rogers returned from [spoiler], Bucky continued in the role. Bucky has since been working his way in to the role, assisted by the Black Widow (who went to the same school for assassins), Commander Steve Rogers (he's been promoted since he died) and the Falcon, sometime partner of Captain America in modern times.

This is a five-issue chapter in the Brubaker Captain America saga, from issues #606-610 – collected as Captain America: No Escape. This time Baron Zemo (the younger) is out to show his contempt for what he considers the easy ride Bucky Barnes has had in overcoming his past as the Winter Soldier, and being handed the job of Captain America without having to earn it. At least, that's how Zemo sees it. Zemo sets out to ruin Bucky's reputation, by setting him up to look like a danger to the public, and then to leak his past history as the Winter Soldier.

This collects #606-610 of Captain America.

So it's clear that Bucky just can't shake off his past, no matter what he does. It's kinda standard for Captain America stories too, where the villains of WWII just keep popping up; however, it's clear that with two different pasts this Captain America is plagued with reminders of what he once was. It's predictable in that sense but it does manage to stay fresh at the same time, using the past to write a unique story moving forward. It's clear at the end that "No Escape" refers to the past, as Bucky has reached a point where he can no longer run from his past as the Winter Soldier given who knows that fact at the end.

Baron Zemo, the younger, has just found out who this new Captain America is. The warnings that Bucky has ignored really should've have been brushed off, since people now know exactly who he is. As much as Captain America is the target of Zemo's hate, there is a comparable amount targeting Bucky and with the two being one, how can he ignore not making his life miserable? Bucky Barnes is toyed with, manipulated, and beaten, all according to Zemo's plan.

The art is great. It does feel like it's a bit of a step down in places, but nothing that's irritating and always captures the mood and feel.

The only downside to this comic is that there really wasn't that much plot, if you think about it. The end result was just setting up for the next arc, and making Bucky miserable throughout. It's not bad but not particularly important, since I'm pretty sure that excluding one thing Zemo does, it can be ignored in terms of Captain America's continuity. But, it's more than enjoyable so you don't want to ignore it. Not the best, but far from bad.
