Captain America #10 Review by (May 8, 2019)

Review: Nothing particularly exciting happens in this issue, even a cage match between Cap and the baddie, while exciting for a bit, was unsatisfying in the end. The issue's still dark and dreary, has very little going on (a prison break and a phone call about sums it up), and the artwork is quite rough in spots. Only the return of Crossbones and Sin hold any prospect for improvement next time around.

Comments: Steve Rogers does not wear the Captain America outfit in this issue. Steve recalls his time as a New York City police officer; this began in CAPTAIN AMERICA #139.

Captain America #10 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Invisible Woman slips into the Myrmidon prison to meet with Thunderball; the villain has been having second thoughts about the bad guy life and now wants to be called Dr. Franklin. She injects him with a chemical and departs....

Steve Rogers ponders levels of evil: the crooks he is in prison with he once considered evil but now the nation's enemies are welcomed (Alexa Lukin), Captain America is considered a villain, and old foes like Aleksander Lukin are reaping profits. Lukin is on the phone with the assassin known as the Foreigner who is complaining about being pursued by the vigilante called the Dryad. Lukin does not consider that his problem and he hangs up on Foreigner. In case the hit man tries to cause him trouble, Lukin contacts Crossbones and Sin to deal with it....

Thunderball collapses and is rushed to the infirmary with his old pal Wrecker where the patients watch a CCTV showing the battle between Cap and Baron Strucker in an electrified cage. Steve, his power cut by half from the power dampeners, has a rough time of it. Then the chemical in Thunderball's body kicks in—and the power dampeners go out. Steve smashes Strucker (and the cage) with a single punch and the prisoners rise up against their captors....
