    1. Captain America is back from the land of the pseudo dead. Now, it’s Awkward City between he and Bucky, who replaced him while Cap visited Not-Quite-Deadsville.Bucky: “Hey, Cap! Do you want your shield back?Captain America: “You keep it.”Bucky: “Are you sure? I’m not the real Captain America.”Captain America: “You earned it, Bucky”Bucky: “You’re the real Captain America. It’s your shield.”Captain America: “Bucky, if you don’t take the shield, I’m going to shove it [...]

    2. How many Captain Americas does it take to screw in a light bulb?We get three versions of Cap in this collection. There’s the original one, Steve Rogers, freshly back from the dead. There’s Steve’s former sidekick James ‘Bucky’ Barnes who carried on the name while Steve was pushing up daisies. Finally, there’s a third one, a failed version from the ‘50s that the modified super soldier serum drove mad. This Bad Cap has hooked up with a band of Tea Party like domestic terrorists who w [...]

    3. Ignore the idea that there will be some sort of controversy over who will be Cap now, Steve or Bucky. Steve is too mature to make an issue of it, and Bucky respects him too much to do the same. Sure, it doesn't make for the most dramatic story in the world, but it suits the characters.The Two Americas story that take up much of the book, on the other hand I would not be in the least bit surprised to learn that Brubaker had a long visit from editorial partway through the story. What starts out as [...]

    4. For perhaps obvious reasons, Captain America was one of the most popular superheroes who took on the Axis during World War II. In the post-war years, however, his popularity waned. He was brought back for a brief time in the '50s as a HUAC-approved "Commie smasher," but this iteration of the character proved short-lived, and he disappeared again for awhile.When Thor, Iron Man, Ant-Man, and the Wasp found Cap buried in a block of ice in 1964 in "The Avengers" #4, it was explained that he had fall [...]

    5. When the single issues were first published writer Ed Brubaker caught a lot of flak. Some accused him of having it out for the Tea Party with this storyline. Read the story, and the actual analysis of the Tea Party, much closer. This is a story about a man awakened from suspended animation who wants a return to the 1950s America, he fears and cannot handle change which addresses much of the Tea Party's issues (white males formerly in power having difficulty adjusting to change). Well done, fairl [...]

    6. I love Brubaker, but this wasn't quite 5 star material for me. It's a decent story, but I'm not exactly sure what he was trying to say with the story line. I'm not crazy about mixing my comics with blatent politics like that.

    7. 4 stars for the special torch-passing issue, "Who will Wield the Shield" included in this volume (Cap and Buck-as-Cap walking side-by-side again.ough yesBlack Widow is there too). In one issue, Ed Brubaker, Luke Ross, and Butch Guice put together another special issue gem in this landmark Captain America run. The special issues are among my favorites, somehow communicating so clearly the grief for the sacrifices and losses that Steve and Bucky have each made and continue to make for their countr [...]

    8. Steve can't quite believe Bucky is the new Cap, they're each convinced that the other should keep the shield, and Bucky heads off to Idaho with Sam to deal with 50s Cap, who now has a grassroots army. Basically solid action story, some political overtones, good Bucky/Sam story. Also, hello President Obama.

    9. Disappointing is the best way to describe what this book did for me I can't put a finger on why exactly - giving Tea Party softheads that much airtime, maybe, or the lack of historical threading between the current battles and all that came before it. A "Fake Cap" was interesting once, but tedious twice.

    10. I'm pretty sure this contains the issue that caused a lot of manufactured mock outrage. See, e.gcomicsalliance/captain-amexnews/politics/2010/There's nothing wrong with taking a page from the times. But I think the politics here doesn't help the story because it's pretty flat. "Some people get self-righteous and are unable to adapt to changing times and become reactionary" is a pretty standard charge. Seems like it could have been done in a single issue. There are a couple of fun interactions be [...]

    11. Who Will Wield The Shield? - back cover blurbWell, in this adventure it's both new Cap James 'Bucky/Winter Soldier' Barnes and former 50's-era Cap William Burnside, so to speak. Crazed Burnside, disgustingly using the old identity while leading a deadly right-wing militia group in Idaho, is planning multiple bombings on U.S soil. Barnes and Sam 'Falcon' Wilson venture west on an initially undercover operation that quickly goes sour, of course. A tight and still-timely (though it's only from 2009 [...]

    12. Brubaker gives us an adventure story set right in his wheelhouse - an espionage thriller with action and characterization featuring The Falcon and the "Bucky Barnes" version of Captain America. In fact, the real hero of this particular story is Sam "The Falcon" Wilson, who never was used to his potential until Brubaker took over the Captain America series. Nothing fancy here, just a great story and art job that keeps you hooked from start to finish and best of all, you didn't need to deal with [...]

    13. This is a difficult title to review. On the one hand, the writing is still good, with a fast pace and solid dialogue, and while the art isn't quite on par with Steve Epting's earlier work with this character, it is similar enough that you can squint and pretend. This volume follows up on the evil/crazy anti-Communist Cap from the 1950s, which was necessary at some point after Brubaker reintroduced the character a few volumes ago. I also liked that Brubaker takes some time here to develop the way [...]

    14. My politics are about as opposite to those of Tea Party adherents as you can get, and I'm really quite glad to be from a non-aligned country, so it's saying something that I winced throughout this. The storyline centres around a "Mad Cap" from the 1950s, yet another failed experiment in recreating the process which transformed Steve Rogers. (At this point, is there anyone who was around in the 40s/50s who wasn't subjected to this kind of experimentation?) I was really uneasy with that, about thi [...]

    15. This one wasn't nearly as good.I would have liked to have seen Steve more. At least know what he was doing while all of this was going on. I get that he's not super-heroing at the moment, but there is still a crazed man pretending to be him running around causing problems. You'd think Steve would know about that. I just sort of needed to know what he was doing.I also wanted more of Steve interacting with Bucky. It clearly happened, but it was "off-screen". These two really haven't sat down and t [...]

    16. This was kind of a mop-up story that took care of some leftover plot bits from the death of Captain America. Previous issues from the same run of comics hinted that they could bring Captain America back, but here, that is a fait accompli, and he has just come back already. I suppose it took place in another set of stories. This focuses mostly on a guy who tried to become Captain America in the fifties, and the process has since made him go crazy. He was frozen for a while, and then escaped, and [...]

    17. Captain America seems to be getting a little worse with each volume and I feel like I'm being generous giving it three stars. This story arc is utterly forgettable, but is thankfully over quickly. The plot thread of "Bad Cap" finally comes to fruition and nothing about it is particularly interesting or surprising. He is a very flat and uninteresting villain that almost no reader will relate to. Of course, there is the whole tea party/right-wing terrorism thing going on here. I don't think the st [...]

    18. While I expected this book to deal with how the return of Steve Rogers affects Bucky, the other America is actually Bad Cap, the misguided doppelganger who has now taken up with domestic terrorists. Blowing shit up in the name of America, that's the way to do it! Brubaker does let us into Bad Cap's head a bit, showing how things went so wrong, but, really, how many Captain Americas can one book take? Mostly, this arc is fun for the Bucky/Falcon team-up, and it has some decent things to say about [...]

    19. Boise, Idaho!!! They have a straight up 9th St. picture looking up to the capital. It was awesome to see home, but that's about it. Of all the Captain American comics I've read, this one was a little less than great. I felt it was missing something, I don't know what, but something.The art was okay, not amazing, but good. The story was decent, if you're reading the series than this is a okay story. It didn't have the large scooping stories that the Brubaker's original Cap stories had. Good, but [...]

    20. The idea of 50s Cap, or Bad Cap, or Crazy Cap (whatever you want to call him) is really great. I have always thought there was a lot of potential for stories there. Here unfortunately Ed Brubaker, who I normally love, gives a pretty run of the mill clichéd storyline. This plot was unoriginal to say the least and Brubaker is capable of so much more. Luke Ross, who handled most of the art, looked incredibly rushed. It was not the crisp art from him that I’ve come to expect. Overall, the book wa [...]

    21. Me gustan mucho los arts de este comic, la portada es una de mis favoritas, me parece de las más realistas que he visto. La historia del capi de los cincuenta me parece dura y muy real en el concepto de la América de la recesión del 2008, como lo compara con la Gran Depresión me parece muy correcto para llevarlo a esta historia. Y por supuesto Bucky siempre de 10. El epilogo con Steve, sin embargo no me ha llenado tanto.

    22. Woke up today ALOT earlier than I should have or needed to, but my little cousin kept on waking me up during the night.rrySo when I went and started the install for Itunes I had some time to kill before it was done and before I needed to head to class so I picked this bad boy up and finished it lickity split. I'm looking forward to finding out what happens to Bucky, I've read comics further in the future and I know he like almost dies

    23. As with Reborn, Two Americas is another great story by Ed Brubaker and continues Cap's story, focusing on two Caps this time - however not the two you might think of at first. I was slightly disappointed that Rogers doesn't play much of a role in this story. But what Brubaker's come up with is great as well. But again, just like with Reborn, I don't like the art work as much as I've enjoyed Steve Epting's work on previous issues

    24. What can I say but Brubaker continues to make Cap the most relevant superhero book out there. That is no small feat. This volume follows the new Cap (ex-Bucky) as he tracks down the '50s Cap and his involvement with Tea Party like terrorists. This is a commentary on current politics that does not preach, but definitely hits home.hands down, this is the comic I look most forward to the next volume. IT is always good.

    25. 2.5 stars rounded up to 3 stars. This is the first step to the end of Bucky as Captain America replacement. The opening Who will yield the shield is the best part of whole thing. It"s like when you are putting water into a pasta sauce to make more of it. The 1950's Cap and the whole militia trope was heavy and dragged for too long. We get manpain for Bucky to start him on the road to self sacrifice and destruction of his soul I guess. Definitely not one of my favourite.

    26. What's better than one Captain America? Two? Three?Leading up to the Siege story arc, Two Americas deals with the return of Steve Rodgers, Bucky now carrying the shield and a bunch of nutjobs trying to stick it to The Man in Idaho.With the stories leading up to this having been so strong, it's a shame that things have to dip - but dip they do.It's still fun, well-paced, well drawn and entertaining, taken on its own it's fine. It's just not up to the standard of what's gone before.

    27. Ehhhh, this wasn't bad. It was solid, and I enjoyed learning a little bit more about Nomad, but it was hard to take Fake Cap/Captain Unamerica and the blatant political themes seriously. This could also just have seemed worse than it is coming after all the previous really really good Brubaker arcs.
