Okay, first off, I love the Invaders and grew up with them.
J. Krueger
This is definitely one of John Byrne's and Roger Sterns best collaborations and they do Cap justice.

If you call yourself a Captain America fan, then you must own this!

Okay, first off, I love the Invaders and grew up with them. This collection has it all. There's an Origin issue for Cap, two Legacy of the Invaders Issues featuring the last battle of Frank Robbins's fantastic hero, Union Jack, Cap for President, Dragon Man, Nick Fury and Cap's original shield. It's all incredible. Every single issue of it. Cannot recommend enough. I would argue, as a long time Cap reader (every issue since #100), this collection may be the definitive collection.

Format: Paperback
Stern & Byrne's famous 9-issue Cap run had great potential that was cut short due to internal politics at the time.

Highlights here for me...
*Issue 250- Cap for president. If you've ever wondered why nobody has Cap run for office, it's probably because the story was already done here. Cap & politics are dealt with in a relatively satisfying way. Still, I think more could have been done with this idea.
*Issues 251 & 252- Batroc the Leaper & Mr. Hyde! This 2-part story is currently my favorite in the volume. I didn't think *anybody* could get me interested in Batroc the Leaper- kudos to Stern & Byrne for actually pulling it off.
*Issue 255- 40th anniversary issue. Cap's origin cleaned up & reestablished. Byrne's pencils are reproduced with no inks- just color. It's an indication to me that as good as inkers were at the time, they just didn't quite do Byrne's pencils full justice. Solid origin story!
*Bonus art- The first 6 pages of what would've been issue 256; pencils & colors with no inks. Great pencils! Maybe my favorite in this collection.

Throughout the entire paperback, Stern & Byrne reestablish who Cap is and what he's all about. It has to be remembered that before their 9-issue run, Cap's origin had been played with & messed up by other creators a bit too much. This paperback sets things right. Supporting characters are given attention too, although Sharon Carter was supposedly already killed at that time.

It's almost unheard of these days for professional comic book pencilers to do 2 titles per month, every month. It's hard enough for most artists to meet a monthly schedule with just one book! Yet Byrne, a rising star at Marvel in the early eighties, did exactly that & more: he did Captain America and X-Men at the same time, and he managed to make both runs memorable & exciting. I don't consider this Byrne's best work, but it's worth looking into if you're a Captain America fan. Moderately recommended.

This collects the full 9-issue run (247-255 in 1980) on Captain America by Roger Stern and John Byrne. As far as I'm concerned, these are arguably the best Captain America issues of all-time.

First of all, Byrne was at his artistic peak (circa his work on X-Men), and together, he and Stern breathed new life into a stale character by delving into his long convulated past while also giving Steve Rogers a real life in the modern world.

This collection is worth buying just for the "Captain America for President" (250) issue.

Roger Stern's time on Captain America was very brief, but he did several important things. First, he introudced Bernie Rosenthal, one of Steve's best love interests. Secondly, he cleared up and fixed the fragmented origin stories and continuity missteps that Marvel had published for Cap prior to Stern's run.

Stern's run is fun, but still treats the character and the world seriously. He really gives a good look at what makes Steve Rogers tick, most notably in the "Captain America for President" story.

Captain America like most long published titles has had its ups and downs. One of the highlights was the truncated run with Roger Stern as writer and John Byrne as penciller . Their collaboration only lasted nine issues because of a conflict between Stern and EIC Jim Shooter. However, that short run was productive. Stern and Byrne untangled the chaos surrounding Cap's history that had developed in recent issues before they joined the book by retelling the origin story. They had a great story on Cap running for President in issue 250 a reunion with some of the invaders in issues 253 and 254 plus other stories. The Machinesmith story line was just a little better than average however and brings the collection down to 4 stars. This was still one of the better ruins on Captain America. Too bad it didnt last longer but glad Stern and Byrne had nine issues with the captain
