CAPTAIN AMERICA AND DEADPOOL AGAINST DR DOOM IN THE BATTLE OF THE CENTURY!
- Spoiler: show
Actually Dr. Doom just lets Cap go. Apologies if I overhyped that for you. Also das_boot made a post in another thread about the X-Men being dicks to Deadpool and here Sam Wilson comes to him for information, gets important details, and then totally just leaves him hanging in the clutches of a mad dictator. I don't know what he could have done to get Deadpool out but perhaps he could have put in more than zero effort...
This book is getting a bit more political. There is various levels of textual criticism you could probably approach this from if that is your sort of thing. I personally really enjoy the geopolitics at play. The political crisis going on in the Black Panther book is featured here as it has in a few titles now and I always appreciate when the editors keep that cohesiveness across the line. I also have enjoyed watching White Wolf's plot come together (even if him looming around conveniently all the time is a bit silly) because I have not been able to guess the steps ahead of time. That is key to a villain's credibility as a threat. And key to a writing a good story; I don't know where this is going to end up and I want to see the next moves. And the quality art by Silva and Carlos isn't a bad incentive either.
