Today, Marvel comics announced the return of one of their most iconic characters (one of comicdoms most iconic…), Steve Rogers.
This coincided with the release of Captain America #600. The weeks leading up to this have been full of speculation as to what the earth-shattering reveal is that will lead up to the Captain America: Reborn series. Marvel’s press release can be found here.
Predictably, the ever-fickle comic public has taken to the internet to complain endlessly about this. It appears that many fans are assuming that this marks the end of Bucky as Captain America which I am seriously doubting. Personally, I think that it’s silly to whine about anything Ed Brubaker does during his run because I’m sure that Steve’s reintegration into the Marvel Universe will be as exciting and suspenseful as the Winter Solider’s redemption and development as a true Captain America. Unless Brubaker’s hands were forced by editorial decisions by Marvel, I am certain that this will be another great chapter in what may go down as the most acclaimed run on the character, ever.
