Captain America #10 Review by (August 31, 2013)
Review: So it’s finally over. Saw a number of glowing reviews online for this issue and the whole Dimension Z storyline, and I’m wondering if we’re reading the same comic book. Normally I don’t mind a creative team taking a familiar character in a new direction but I gave it a chance but this campy sci-fi epic was just plain ridiculous. Plus, it was overlong, ugly, and nasty, with Cap taking a beating each issue and faced to deal with the loss of a son—who was added to the story just to be lost, making for some cheap drama. And if losing a son wasn’t enough, Sharon Carter, here suddenly cast as a one-dimensional tough chick, dies to pile on the melodrama. And they don’t explain how Steve was only in Dimension Z for a half hour. And how many times are they going to argue Jet Black into doing the right thing with the same arguments? And I’m not going to touch that ending (I’ll assume it’s Ian); whatever it turns out to be will likely make no sense either.

Captain America #10 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Jet Black is reeling from the death of her father and the news that her brother Ian is dead too. Arnim Zola’s battle station is taking off through the portal so Sharon Carter prepares to detonate the explosives she planted in it. Jet, unwilling to lose her home as well, snatches away the detonator and takes off on a jet sled, with Captain America and Sharon in pursuit. They are fired upon by the Cap mutates and the hero engages them while Sharon tries to persuade Jet to stop her father’s final scheme. A giant Arnim Zola construct taunts his wayward daughter so Sharon jumps on his shoulder and taunts him as she detonates the bombs, destroying the battle station—and herself. Cap tries to go back for her but finds everything has been gone for years. Jet leads him through the portal to his own world where he now feels even further out of time…..

Epilogue: The War of Dimension Z continues. The Phrox rise up against the mutates under the leadership of a mysterious new champion, a shield-wielding human called Nomad….
