As someone who is carefully returning to reading Marvel after a few year hiatus (Civil War made me leave and I found myself reading DC/Vertigo and Boom! titles), this series actually got me hopeful about Marvel.

Then again, this is a "vintage era" story (With WWII Cap, The Howling Commandos, and WWII era Panther).

Although, it did confirm my suspicions about Wakanda's "intelligence" network. I mean, I knew it was an "advanced nation" and I often wondered if Wakanda had it's own intelligence network. The fact that, in the Panther's own words, about his intelligence gathering people literally being "invisible" made me chuckle, given the racial tensions back then.

It's very plausible for that timeframe.

This story, so far, is a rare gem in what has become a cesspool of bloated crossovers and poorly written "events" (*insert almost any Marvel project from the last couple years*...particularly Fall of the Hulks). Of course, I also like this series because I like "vintage era/flashback" stories.

Here, we see Red Skull at his freakin' best (well, worst...but you know what I mean) and the various "super soldier" freaks the nazis had.

But I love how BP and Wakanda are portrayed in this series. Yes, they may be (by the world's standards) a "savage African" nation, but their sensibilities are at least a few decades ahead of the rest.
