Steve Rogers: Super-Soldier Annual #1 Review by (August 3, 2013)
Review, Part Two: The X-Men and Captain America (even the retired one) make for an odd team-up and James Asmus delivers a comic epic full of fast paced action and constant comic bickering among the heroes. It takes a while for the comedy to settle in—in part one it seemed like all the characters genuinely hate each other—but Steve Rogers arrives in part two to bring out the best (sort of ) in them. The art is wildly uneven, resulting from the decision to have the three installments drawn by different artists with widely varying styles. This issue features Ibraim Roberson whose realistic style is very pleasing to the eye and would fit nicely in the Captain America title of this era.

Comments: Only issue in this series.

Continued from UNCANNY X-MEN ANNUAL #3.

As Emma Frost and Pixie arrive in New York to seek help for their compatriots trapped in the Negative Zone, Blastaar broadcasts a message to Earth that he considers Cyclops' and Hope Summers' invasion of his realm to be an act of aggression and he demands that they send Reed Richards to plead for mercy. Super-Soldier Steve Rogers volunteers to mount a rescue mission and he enters the Zone via SHIELD’s portal. Blastaar is not happy to see him and Steve fights his way through the aliens. Eventually he links up with Hope and Scott who have freed themselves. They fight their way back to the portal chamber and battle Blastaar when suddenly the wall comes crashing down and Namor, insane from lack of water, attacks friend and foe alike….
