Format: Paperback
Captain America is a hard character to write; it's too easy to turn him into a caricature, a right-wing, nationalistic, naively patriotic, semi-fascist buffoon. In the "Deathlok Lives" story, JM DeMatteis (with an assist from the amazing art of Mike Zeck, one of the great Cap artists of all time) really manages to get at the heart of what makes Cap tick. DeMatties concentrates on how a man from the 40s struggles to live in contemporary society, on how relevant a hero created to be a symbol of 1940s America can be in a grimmer, more cynical age.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The J.M. DeMatteis/Mike Zeck run is one of the most definitive runs on Captain America in the post-Roger Stern/John Byrne era. It also spotlights the original Deathlok, Luther Manning. Long before Marvel decided to muddy up the waters by creating a lot of other Deathloks, this is the original and best version of Deathlok. This trade paperback has been out of print for years, so I'd suggest snagging a copy of this to see clear, concise storytelling without the maddening, convoluted mess that Marvel would later devolve into. DeMatteis portrays both Cap and Deathlok as human beings as well as supersoldiers of the past. present, and future. This is also Mike Zeck and John Beatty perfectly complimenting the story with exciting, dynamic artwork (and they would later go on to depict Punisher: Circle Of Blood and Spiderman: Kraven's Last Hunt). This story makes perfect sense of a post-apocalyptic future Earth and shows how one man can make a difference even with things are at their worst. This is an example of the perfect marriage of art & story.
