In this story, Captain China, formerly known as Liberator and ranked Major, is brought from cryogenic sleep to fight China's enemies or at least that's what he would prefer whereas his superiors see him more as a PR stunt to show China's strength. The name initially gives a sense of rip-off, but it's explained as more of a calculated PR move by the Chinese leadership. Captain China of course does mirror some aspects of Captain America in the movie winter soldier though in the sense that the protagonist comes from a different time and is facing a bit of a culture shock (but hey this came from the year 2012 whereas the winter soldier came from 2014 so no rip off here). It's worth noting that one of the major characters in this story worked in the wrestling industry and now works for Captain China as his PR manager of sorts.
That said, Captain China has all the underpinnings of a America-style superhero, from the macho attitudes, the stoic resolve, the mystery shrouded around his past, and the disregard for authority figures. He may be held under a tight leash, but he still defies authority to save lives, kick butt and take name in this first volume. Where he does separate from the traditional American superhero however is his ruthlessness in regards to villains. Hell, he shot and killed a thief during his introduction who turns out to be hired secretly by the PR manager to cause a commotion in front of Captain China and the press. His commander is shocked at how trigger happy Captain China is.Read more ›
So it's very interesting to see how this is playing out. He's as "A Man From Out Of Time" as Captain America, and like Cap is having to cope with this massive change in his life, and adjust to this new world. So far it's been very exciting to read, and has some really great moments, like when (in issue 2) the Captain finds his image has been made into a toy to be marketed.
Just wish Excel Comics would release new English language issues.
So I highly recommend it.

Does that mean China "officially" has its own super hero now, I'm not sure, but thanks to Wang who brought life to this so-entertaining role, I believe they're trying to speak up... Read morePublished on June 5, 2012 by POPOEVER
