Captain America #15 Review

Captain America #15| Writer: Ed Brubaker & Cullen Bunn | Art: Scott Eaton | Colors: GURU EFX | Publisher: Marvel Comics | Price: $3.99

The first joint effort of Ed Brubaker and Cullen Bunn brings about a fun new story arc titled New World Order.
Captain America has a full plate as he’s fighting a new race of alien invaders while having to deal with public opinion weighing heavily against him.

Add a little girlfriend drama along with Hydra lurking in the shadows and you have an all around fun comic book.

The public opinion against Cap has potential to be a fascinating concept.

Steve Rogers is the hero of heroes but no matter how many times he saves the world, everyday lives remain unchanged.

The economy is in the toilet, unemployment is at an all time high and people are still losing their homes.

If you live in a Marvel world your probably tired of hearing about the heroic exploits of the Sentinel of Liberty. He may save someone from a burning building but at the end of the day, that person, perhaps, still has to worry about how they are going to provide food for their family.

This is one problem that a Vibranium shield can’t solve.

Captain America was not created for problems like this but knowing Steve Rogers like we do, he will take this issue to heart.

Ed Brubaker’s time is winding down as #19 will be his last issue on a historic run that began in 2004. Cullen Bunn is an amazing writer and anyone that has not picked up The Sixth Gun needs to do so ASAP. However, do you remember how manyCaptain America books you read back in 2003? I can tell you, none. Brubaker is not just another writer who pumped out some great books; he made the character relevant again and beyond. So enjoy the time we have left with Mr. Brubaker and his Eisner award winning talents on a beloved pop culture icon.
