Captain America #39 Review

Written by Ed Brubaker

It's about time Captain America kicked back into high gear. After months of simply showing off Bucky as the new Captain America and barely inching the plot ahead, we finally get some major developments this issue. However, if you've been following Cap, you could probably guess what happens in 99% of this issue.

For starters, the Red Skull has the Grand Director, dressed up as Captain America, break up a staged attack on the Skull's puppet Third Wing Party candidate at a rally. The Director goes on to fully endorse the senator in front of the crowd and there is a huge surge in the polls in favour of him.

It was written exceptionally well, but we all saw it coming a mile away and that's the only complaint I have about this issue. It's like we're going through the motions most of the time.

Meanwhile, Sharon Carter manages to escape from her shackles and takes Sin hostage, who was sharing a hospital bed with her after her run in with Bucky earlier in the series, in an attempt to make her escape...again. They really need to invest in some guards or handcuff her to the bed next time.

Finally, Bucky, after seeing the fake Cap, who looks and sounds just like Steve Rogers, starts shadowing the Third Wing candidate in hopes of seeing the new Cap show up. When he doesn't, Bucky sneaks into the senators supposed hotel room and ends up face to face with the waiting Grand Director.

Verdict - Must Read. While most of the story advancement in this issue was predictable, this was still a much better read than the previous couple months worth of Captain America. It finally feels like we're over the filler hump and the plot can get moving again.
