Anonymous: Hi! So, um, I haven't read Remender's Cap, I'd like to know what he did to him. Can you tell me? Thank you.

Whatever you do, don’t read Remender’s Captain America, especially if you haven’t read any of the comics before. And here’s why:

  1. He fridged Sharon to just to make Steve cry. (see also: Women in Refrigerators by Gail Simone)
  2. Meet Jet Zola, Remenber’s OC and the most hyper-sexualized 15 year old girl in comic books
  3. He turned Steve’s father from a complex, broken but loving father who happened to suffer from alcoholism, into a walking stereotype – the drunk Irishman who beat his wife and couldn’t hold down a job.
  4. He fundamentally does not understand who Steve is as a character.
  5. His idea of taking the book in a “new direction” is to essentially rip off the stories Stan Lee and Ed Brubaker have alreadu told.
  6. His response as a comic book professional to legitimate criticism of his writing? That you should go drown yourself in hobo piss.

A longer and more detailed essay about why Remender’s Captain America run is sexist, racist and basically being the exact opposite of everything Steve Rogers stands for, can be found here: Why Rick Remender Needs to Stop.

For new fans interested in reading Captain America, stay far, far, far away from the current book. Instead I would recommend:

  • Ed Brubaker’s run on Captain America (Volume 5 and Volume 6). I mean, not only would there be no CA:TWS the movie without Ed Brubaker, but the Bucky Clause would still be in effect.
  • Mark Waid’s run on Captain America (Volume 1 ##445-448 and Volume 3 #1-23), plus Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty and the mini-series Captain America: Man Out of Time. No other writer gets Steve like Mark Waid does, plus his Sharon is probably the single best example of the character in her 50+ year existence. 

If you’re going to hop into comics after seeing TWS, please please please don’t read Remender’s Cap. I’m begging you.
