A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 337
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at another notable retcon that Ed Brubaker introduced during his run on Captain America – this time re-examining Bucky’s role in the army…
In Captain America #5, we see a flashback of when Captain America met Karpov, the fellow who ran the Russian super-science group before Lukin, but more importantly, we learn an interesting fact about Bucky that we never knew before…
First off, what fabulous Michael Lark artwork that is!
Secondly, what a neat revelation (the revelation on the last page is “the” moment for me) by Brubaker! This one was a real game-changer; pretty much every writer since have begun to work in Bucky’s secret past as a secret commando into their stories, and with good reason, as it is a really cool idea, and an interesting way to explain why Cap let someone like Bucky fight along his side.
