Origin story retold.

It's fine. It is what it is. Nice. Nothing to get excited about.

  I was surprised that Cap's origin stays exactly the same since 1941. Even the 2011 movie changed nothing. That is pretty cool.

  Yeah I read this ish after I had seen the movie and was surprised at how the super serum scene was almost exactly like it was in the comic.

  I guess I need to read the golden age Cap, but did he really have chain mail covering his neck back then, or was this a fill-in explanation for the previous Baron Blood arc?
