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.Read more ›
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.....
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.Read more ›
