Yes, Captain America has been frozen again. But don’t be too quick to pass judgement because this latest arc might be a cool one (sorry).
Ice to see you
Once, he was a man out of time…and now he’s about to re-live that moment all over again. Following the shocking ending of CAPTAIN AMERICA #697, Steve Rogers is back on ice in CAPTAIN AMERICA #698, and it’s a brave new (and cold) world. Now, it’s up to the super soldier to assemble a new group of Howling Commandos to help him battle for this freedom.
“Everybody thought it couldn’t happen again—but it has!” teased SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Once more, Cap is a man out of time—but the new era he finds himself in is fraught with perils, personal hardships, and challenges unlike anything the shield-slinger has ever experienced before. The lead-up to our big blow-out #700 issue starts here!”
It’s a story readers won’t want to miss, and it all begins this February with CAPTAIN AMERICA #698—on ice!
With Cap back as Cap in the Marvel U, the push is on to issue #700. Legacy has brought back the original numbering (well…) for so many of Marvel’s books, and Cap is one of their biggest. So you knew there was a monster arc coming up that’d lead into that landmark issue.
Not that I’m thrilled at the theme so far, but you never know. Right now, all we do know is that Captain America #698 brings the living legend into a cold world indeed this February. We’ll have more details as they emerge.
