  3 stars for the Red Skull in the present, and the 1st app of the Cosmic Cube!!!

Big Brains - For a bunch of smart guys; did none of them do research on the Red Skull? He's known for backstabbing and killing of all his so called partners!!!

Wacky Cappy - After fighting in the office, Cap knows that they're real by touching them. Even though he touched them earlier on the street! He also says he doesn't usually wear his costume around town. Even though he does all the time!!! How much you wanna bet he never wears that hypno jammer "A" again?

'Nuff Said - "Horst! You need a shave! It is intolerable!"-Red Skull

  Thankfully, it looks like AIM hooked up the Red Skull with a good tailor to give him a snazzy smoking jacket instead of those lousy WWII Nazi surplus pajamas. Better living through Advanced Ideas!

  I like the way the Red Skull tries to pass himself off as always being in the lap of luxury throughout his life when he stated his origin as a small peasant boy in his origin story in Suspense #66. Guess an evil villain has a rep to uphold!

  Clearly that stubble really was intolerable. Poor Horst...

  Disappointing art on the final few panels ruined the ending for me. Nice to see present day Red Skull, AIM and the Cosmic Cube though. Let's hope the Cube really is cosmic and not an AIM invention...

  1. How in the world did Cap (or S.H.I.E.L.D., I suppose) guess that a hypnotic ray (whatever the hell that is) was being used, instead of some selective invisibility, or magic for that matter?
  2. And why do you need to get the hypnotic device to S.H.I.E.L.D. for them to create a defense, when they clearly already have created a defense?

This was a pretty shallow plot. ★★
