Captain America Reborn #3 - Marvel
As we started to find out last issue, it appears that Sharon Carter is the key to everything. All she knows is that it's somehow connected to when she destroyed the Red Skull's machine. The Red Skull knows what's going on, and it appears that Norman is starting to put the pieces together. But us . . the reader . . and Steve, who's soul seems to be bouncing around through time . . we're all at a loss. But Steve does make a ploy this issue. He comes to in his body during the Kree / Skrull war. He's there with the Avengers. So he gets the idea to use the Vision's memory. 'I need to tell you something, and then I need you to forget it. To bury it deep in your memory storage . . can you do that?' But we don't find out quite yet just what that was. Also Reed has gone to investigate Steve's remains, which were secretly laid to rest in the Arctic Ocean. Anyways, he and Namor bring up his glass coffin, but . . one minute his body is there, and the next it's not. And the Falcon has gone after the Thunderbolts to release Bucky. He does get a little help from Ant-man though. It appears that he's tired of working with these guys, and is beginning to think he picked the wrong side of this war. Other than that, we don't get a lot more information this issue. But . . this is the middle issue, so that's to be expected. I thought it was a great story by Ed Brubaker. The artwork is provided by Bryan Hitch and Butch Guice. With covers by Bryan, Butch and Paul Mounts, and John Cassaday and Laura Martin. I can't wait to see how this one plays itself out. It appears to be a classic in the making.
