So evidently Marvel is renumbering (again) the main Captain America title as they did with issue #600 some years ago; thus taking us back as if Tales of Suspense never ended; at least until the movies dictate otherwise.

Question is, how does this all end up with 695 this time? There have been too many re-launches for me to keep up with.

Tales of Suspense #1-99
Captain America v1 #100-454
Captain America v2 #1-13 (#455-467)
Captain America v3 #1-50 (#468-517)
Captain America v4 #1-32 (518-549)
Captain America v5 #1-50 (550-599), #600-635
Captain America v6 #1-19 (#636-654)
Captain America v7 #1-25 (#655-679)

And then it just sort of falls apart
All New Captain America #1-6
Captain America: Sam Wilson #1-24
Captain America: Steve Rogers #1-19

After we get CA:SW #24 and CA:SR 19 we get Captain America #25 and then the next issue is Cap #695

679+6+24+19+2 = 730

If we exclude ANCA I get 724
If we exclude CA:SW I get 706
If we exclude CA:SR I get 711

If we exclude ANCA and CA:SW I get 700
If we exclude ANCA and CA:SR I get 705
If we exclude CA:SW and CA:SR I get 687

I didn't count:
1. Annuals
2. Limited series
3. One shots
4. Ongoing series that aren't the main title like Captain America and Falcon or Sentinel of Liberty
5. 0, 0.1, -1 issues or any kind of special numbered issue

There is no integrity at Marvel. They will fudge the number of issues to get it just right. How coincidental that the series resumes at 695. Starting up again at #695 would give them the chance to do a six-issue arc that ends at #700. What perfect timing, and what a chance to put those six issues into a trade. I'm sure after that they will cancel the book immediately and give us a new Captain America #1 with yet another new Captain or costume.
