Captain America is prepared to perform one last security check around Avengers Mansion before going to bed. He begins to feel dizzy and soon passes out. He later wakes up and comes upon the ending of a battle, and one of the combatants is an exact replica of him. He captures the man or creature hoping to later find some answers. -summary

Captain America had still been sharing the Tales of Suspense title with Iron Man at this point, and it was no surprise to see that a strong case was made for him to have his own series in which he later got in the form of Captain America #100. These stories were great for their time I'm sure and many of them hold up well even now; at the same time they do suffer from some sloppy writing once in awhile and it seemed as if Stan Lee simply wanted to get these arcs out of the way, and focus on the books his heart were clearly into more; such as The Amazing Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, and The Incredible Hulk. This TPB collects Tales of Suspense issues 82 - 99, and Captain America 100.

There are plenty of story arcs that take place and conclude with some nice surprises here and there, to include a villain Captain America saw perish in their last encounter. Things kick off with a pretty good fight against the Super Adaptoid, whom copies the powers of various superheroes to take a deadly fight to Cap. Then Captain America continues his feud with Hydra, which lands him in one of Marvel's greatest slugfest of all time against Batroc the Leaper; and believe me people, this is some top notch action here.

Captain America encounters the Red Skull again, meets the Black Panther for the first time, and battles A.I.M.'s new and deadly leader M.O.D.O.K, which is short for Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing.

Back in the original Marvel Age of the 1960s, Marvel teamed up a recently revived Captain America with Iron Man in a former Horror/Monster book called Tales of Suspense. The format gave you two heroes, two (usually) ongoing storylines, and some of the best stories ever. Tales of Suspense featured the man made super soldier along side the self made super hero. I honestly think that the best run of Cap stories are from Tales, because it recaptures his origin, his early battles, his then present day transition to Avenger, his pain and on going grief at losing his best friend, and ever present heroic will. He is frequently outnumbered, out-gunned, and attacked by a plethora of evil agents, super-powered villains, and horrifying technological nightmares. Cap wades through all of this, powered mostly by the raw talent of original Captain America creator Jack Kirby. The Black Panther mixes it up with Cap in the last few issues of this, the twilight run of Tales of Suspense storie, culminating with the title turning into Cap's own book with issue 100. Buy this book, any format, for a good price, because it won't disappoint.

For this volume, which is chocked full of great stories and battles, I have to recommend his conflict with the Super Adaptoid. I not gonna ruin it, i just want to say this: Sometimes surviving a battle, is winning a battle.....

This paperback version of the hardback is well worth its price . the paper its printed on is excellent an the colors just " stand out " . Theses are some of the best early Captain America " TALES OF SUPSENSE " stories , mostly drawn by the King himself Jack Kirby . This is when Cap was using alot of SHIELD weapons , which some are awesome , like the underwater suit . Many guest stars like the Avengers , and many of the best villians like Skull, Batroc, and Modock with a bunch of other thugs . Also a a story with the " Black Panther " . If your a fan of the silver age , an cant afford the Hardback , this well worth it .

I first read reprints of Captain America back in the seventies. The great art and stories kept me coming back. I'm glad Marvel is reprinting them on better paper in trade paperback form. If you're a fan of Cap, you shouldn't pass up this Marvel Masterworks reprint series.

Classic Stan Lee and Jack Kirby adventures of the red, white, and blue Avenger.A line-up that includes the Avengers, Nick Fury, Agent 13, the Black Panther, the Red Skull, and the Super-Adaptoid is hard to beat. The only thing preventing five stars? Issue 87, written by Roy Thomas and drawn by Jack Sparling.

I enjoyed reading the old comics. the stories and drawings just great to see that the oldies are the goodies. Its nice to have all of those issues in one collection. f your looking for just the stories and not collecting the actual original prints of the comics then this what you should get.

I have a confession to make... When this Marvel Masterwork was first released I wasn't very excited about it. But, I decided to take a chance and see what else Stan and Jack had in store for the character. There are 19 stories in this second volume of Captain America's solo adventures. Combined, they lead the character from the last days of Tales of Suspense all the way up to his own self-titled series.

The first story arc (#82-84) introduces us to the menace of the Super-Adaptoid, an android that can mimic the powers of anyone it comes in contact with. He was created by AIM (Advanced Idea Mechanics, natch) to destroy Captain America. In the course of three issues the Adaptoid defeats our hero, fights the Tumbler, takes on the combined powers of the current Avengers line-up (Goliath, Hawkeye, and Wasp), then defeats our hero for a second time. Not one of Cap's finest hours!

Next up is a trio of one-off stories.

The first (#85) features the return of Batroc and Agent 13. By this time, you get the sense that Stan really likes writing stories were Cap battles foes that closely matches our hero's powers. So far we've had the Adaptoid, The Tumbler, and now Batroc all take him on with nothing but nasty attitudes and limited gymnastic skills.

In the second story (#86), Cap invades some vaguely Chinese weapons factory and destroys a doomsday device for Nick Fury. This story feels like a throw back to his WWII adventures, but I mean that in a good way!

Next up is an odd tale (#87) about a side-burned crook with a disintegrator ray who impersonates Captain America in order to steal his shield. If that sounds needlessly complicated and incredibly stupid that's because it is.
