Captain America #43 Review by (May 31, 2010)
Part two of a three-part story. Ferrari does not elaborate on how he plans to control the world with one nuke—presumably there ARE more? And forgetting that Nick Fury isn’t drugged is one stupid move.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Captain America #43 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
Captain America is tied between two tractors, suspended over a nuclear missile silo surrounded by his enemies, the new Crimson Dynamo, a brainwashed Nick Fury, and The Answer, David Ferrari, Connie’s brother. Ferrari outlines his plans for world domination in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Cap appeals to his love for Connie but The Answer dismisses that as part of his old life; he then gives the order for the tractors to tear Cap apart. Ferrari administers the antidote to Fury so he can watch his friend die. The refugees whose mother Cap saved (last issue) come to his rescue, cutting one of the ropes with a fired arrow. Cap frees his hands but the tractor drags him by his feet across the landscape. Cap manages to free himself fully and Ferrari orders the Crimson Dynamo to blast the hero. Nick Fury, however, rams the armored enemy with the other tractor while Cap takes on the watching soldiers, finishing by hurling his shield to prevent Ferrari from launching the missile. Back in the USA, Connie is brought to see her brother and denounces Cap as a glorified cop, persecuting her innocent David. Then, Connie realizes that under the mask is Steve Rogers, her lover…and she breaks down.
