Captain America #26 Review by (December 16, 2020)

Review: Pretty nice story is an issue-long action scene with some nice mediations on how Cap values the friendships he’s made more than the victories and honors he has been given. This last part comes off a bit sappy when summarized in words, but in the issue itself, the context of battle frames it as more proof that Cap is the most decent guy in all of Marvel. The only disappointment in the comic? We don’t get to see Red Hulk beat the living daylights out of Crossbones.

Comments: The cover is a bit misleading as Cap and Rulk aren’t opponents but it makes for a nice Alex Ross painting anyway.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Captain America #26 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

In Madripoor, Captain America leads his forces against the Power Elite’s gang. Dryad was last seen plunging from a helicopter but now Falcon swoops in and catches her….

Crossbones is delivering a savage beating to Thunderbolt Ross as the captive Misty Knight and Black Widow look on helplessly. Ross keeps taunting ‘Bones to give him more….

Winter Soldier has sabotaged the Power Elite’s air force but discovers he has missed the planes in the air. He jumps into a jet and takes to the sky….

Sharon Carter flashes one of the blasts from her new armor and Cap uses his shield to reflect it against the bad guys….

Crossbones breaks off from beating Ross to turn the job over to his sidekick Cutthroat while he and Sin don jet packs to escape. Falcon follows the departing duo but Bucky’s attack on the enemy jets catches Sam in the crossfire; Falcon plummets but catches himself at the last minute. Cutthroat attacks Ross with a cattle prod and the General demands more—and then his desired result comes. The pain has forced Ross to change into the Red Hulk; he clouts the bad guy then leaps into the sky to wreck the enemy planes. He then returns to the ground and he walks up to Captain America and salutes….
