Review: ★★★★☆

Marvel continues it’s run of titles hitting their 100’s with Captain America #700. The year is 2025 and Captain America is yet again a man out of time. Cap defeated a group of terrorists that captured him and put him on ice (again) for 7 years. The group referred to as the Rampart used nuclear weapons to control America’s government. Steve Rogers is here to save the day. I haven’t wanted to read a Captain America book since the Secret Empire thing. Chris Samnee isn’t exactly one of my favorite artists either. Issue #700 lives us to the legacy that is Captain America. Mark Waid puts Cap through the ringer in this hopeless fight. The fight and the ending of the story does itself total justice. Samnee won me over with the emotion that comes across Cap’s face throughout the book. It’s good way to give Rogers a decent refresh before Marvel reboots (again). The book has a nice backup story done by Mark Waid that was based on material by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. The story does a nice high light with Cap battling Batroc the Leaper. You can see Kirby’s energy in the battle. This could be a nice addition to any comic collection or great way to get on board with the Captain.
