Ok I was reading through issue 11 and there were a few glaring mistakes in regards to Helmut.

1. Helmut isn't older than Steve. Helmut was established as being a young boy when Captain America disfigured his father Heinrich in his first appearance. Even during the retcon in Medusa Effect Helmut was about Bucky's age...still younger than Steve. He wasn't an adult in WW2.

2. Hydra (or did Steve mean SHIELD?) didn't make Helmut younger. Helmut for years was young because of his father's Compound X (per the Thunderbolts -1 issue).

And even then Helmut lost his original body after being killed by Nomad/Scourge and is in the body of his much younger Counter Earth doppelganger per Thunderbolts #62.

3. Zemo has no connection to Hydra? His best friend/lackey Norbert was a section chief. He has connections to both Wolfgang von Strucker and the Red Skull and their children. Helmut's got all kind of connections to HYDRA.

Come now Reverend, we both know facts, continuity and past storylines mean NOTHING to Marvel 2017. You and I are, sadly, dinosaurs screaming into the storm that is mass marketing, scorched earth policy and the days where the 616 made sense are sadly gone forever. Remember when Marvel could look down their nose and laugh at DC overly confused continuity??? Oh those were the days. Now it seems to be a race to see which is more confusing and backwards. Of course is doesn't stop me from wining and crying about it. \:\-\)
