Review:

To keep this short and sweet, the idea behind the book is be a lead into the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie. Essentially we get from Cap’s point of view how he feels about each one of the member’s on his “new avengers” team, then everyone having to team up together to go into the field to take on Ultimo. The dialogue from Pilgrim is cheesy, and the art by Andrea Di Vito is satisfactory but neither really makes this tie-in comic book feel like a stand out or must have. I’d be surprised to see how much if any of the story or is influenced or part of the actual movie. Best thing to do is just ignore it like most tie-in books and just go see the movie.

  • The Hey!: If you can somehow find a way in your mind to combine this story with the movie franchise, then it can be a cool addition to the MCU.

  • The Eh: It’s pretty much just $4.99 wasted.

  • The What?!! You get tales of suspense #58, but there are better ways to get that reprint than this money grab.

Score – C
