  That was the kind of well drawn action packed extravaganza that I long for in a comic.

  Cap didn't recognize 13 with glasses and her hair up. He's as dumb as Lois Lane!
I wear glasses-when I take them off, people still recognize me. Got my hair cut last week, my wife still knew it was me. That is the stupidest convention in all of comics.

  Pretty good story. One of the best Kirby's drawings so far.
Captain America with gun rocks! Hope to see more of that.

  Big premiere issue...#100. Um, guys?
Just in case any of you have forgotten, let us take the first couple of pages from Cap's first solo comic to remind you that Namor is a dick.
Cowardly fumes Panther? You were struck with a hypno-ray. I guess it's still working.
The woman you love puts on glasses and a hat, and you don't know who she is any more?
If the minions were just fighting for money, why did they care whether it was the real Zemo or not?

  I;m going to assume they will not explain why Cap isn't going back to the Avengers.  

  TheAmazingGatorMan Says:

  Whoa, wait a sec. So Cap quit the Avengers even though he decided not to quit being Cap? Holy hell!

  Aside from the Scooby-Doo ending this was a really good issue. I'm glad he has a full 20 pages now to let his story breath. Black Panther was great as always.

  Black Panther is nice to see... if only it wasn't against the lame Baron Zemo (not even the real one) and mere henchmen and 'powerful' robots.

  Best Cap story I've read in the run. It was fun with great art and a good ending. I really didn't see that coming. Cap needs a supporting caste in his book, which I hope will get developed now that his stories have more room. I hope this title has turned a corner.

  3 stars for Agent 13 saving the day!!

Cover Me - Nice cover by King Kirby!

Secure - Makes you wonder what the Destructon was guarding when it seemed like all the important stuff was in the other room!

'Nuff Said - "Why is duty such a jealous master? Can it never share the heart--with love?"-Cap

  Predictable Lee/Kirby Cap story. I gotta admit, I was hoping for much more once Cap got his own mag. I am anxious to see what direction his stories go now, but next issue is Red Skull again. Cap needs new villains.

  Pretty sure that Kirby scripted this one.

Irma Kruhl? Please...

  Solid start to the solo series. Not great, but good.  

  Katryn Says:

  Yay, T'Challa got a name! Maybe now they'll name Agent 13? No? Well, at least she did stuff, she's got that going for her ahead of the other Marvel women so far.  

  GroovyGolem Says:

  Cap finally gets his own mag, and yet he STILL doesn't ask Agent 13 what her real name is?!? Instead he waxes poetically about duty being a jealous master. Sheesh!

In a perfect world, after all this time, the scene would go like this:

"Agent 13! You've saved my life yet again! At last can I know your real name?"

"Oh Steve, my darling, of course! It's Angie. Angie Thurdean!"

Otherwise, a mostly solid issue. I too wondered what the purpose of Destructon was, considering he was just hanging out, alone in a seemingly empty room. Wouldn't it have made more sense to station him next to the precious control panel? And I love how all of the robots in the Marvel Universe have complex emotions and the ability to speak. And underpants.

Zemo's pilot is one ugly mofo. No wonder he wore a mask!

  Angie Thurdean? In a perfect world where Adam West is God, maybe!

  Great start to Cap's solo book. A lot of action and a nice little twist on Zemo's real identity.

A couple of minor quibbles though. Cap's so up on the nameless SHIELD agent that he won't go back to the Avengers? I thought lovesick men during the 1940s were more macho than that.

And speaking of nameless agents, do I have to remind you like everyone else, Agent 13? We got the Panther's real name, and Cap's not even interested in him!

And speaking of T'Challa, his being a monarch in a sovereign country would really hinder his being an Avenger in real life. Other than that, he'd make a great fit and stand-in for Cap.

4 stars. Here's hoping Cap's new book proves there's room for both Captain America and Steve Rogers.

  Good action, good reveal. The issue was reminiscent of the Strange Tales Nick Fury stories.

It's interesting to see the power creep in comics, though, because Modern Cap and Panther would have effortlessly handled the whole army of goons

  Five stars. Why? Art and story work. Agent Thirteen takes her glasses off. Cap, Panther and Thirteen defeat the mighty bad robot by tweaking it's nip...buttons! And we get the end of a subplot that's been floating around since somewhere in the Avengers last dust up with Zemo. But mostly for the Kirby art.
