A continued brief review of last weeks comics featuring a review of Marvel Comics Captain America: Living Legend #4, evaluation why the story arc worked.

detailCaptain America: Living Legend #4

Woah.  Just woah.  That really was a good issue.

Captain America is a soldier, first and foremost, but he’s also a goody-goody, a man who seeks out alternatives to killing.  That option wasn’t available here, making this a truly bitter sweet ending to this arc.

Dealing with supernatural forces, alien forces, that have taken control over a man whose life Captain America once saved.  This man was a friend, a companion, a life he saved.  But now this man is killing anyone who comes into contact with him, the power of the alien within him, seeking death but doesn’t know how.

It’s a strong story that switches from the past to the present to show what kind of person Volkov is, what the alien as done to him and what kind of a monster he became without people really knowing.  And now Captain America is faced with the knowledge that is partially responsible for that, because he saved his life.

In the end, it was a story that had a lot of depth, a lot of action and great characterization.  Comics like this make Captain America amazing.
