***Marvel has finally hit the nail on the head with what I want from a current comic book. Something that has at least a little realism with characters that speak and act like real people, but at the same time give you the ever so frequent hypothetical question...Why can't there be super heroes in the real world? In K-A, you see conversations almost all of us have had(Galactus in the F4 movie), hell there is even mention of comic book message boards(no doubt we had something to do with that \:\) ) We then see exactly why people should'nt try to be super heroes, and that is what captures me. You have to know what happens next. Millar brings you into a world not to unlike our own, but also brings you into something that might have crossed your mind in a dream or 2 and that is where his talent shines through. KICK-ASS is just that...Kick ass!!

I remember an old Cap where he was 'retired' and some big tough biker guy decided to try and BE Cap. He got the living crap kicked out of him and realized super heroing wasn't for regular folks \:\)

No powers, kid tries to play vigilante hero, the villains? Looked like some organized crime going on. It doesn't sound like the kid does too well for himself \:\)

Great review, DM!
I saw the ad for this in WWH #5 and thought, "here we go. this will be the end of traditional story telling, and from now on it'll be just garbage storytelling."
I was dead wrong.
I wasn't going to get the first issue. I was SO opposed to it. I saw it on the shelf, and before I knew it, it was mine.
I read it tonight, and gosh-darn it, it's KICK-ASS!
Abe.

Was it when Byrne was illustrating the book? Had to be late seventies early eighties but I'm really not sure as I don't have those books up north. Anyone? Anyone? The guy ended up in a broken heap missing teeth with his makeshift Shield looking like a garbage can lid (if that wasn't what it was to start out with)mangled by a days' worth of traffic.

I don't recall that scene but I read an old Tales of Suspense not too long back when Cap decides to retire so he can have a "normal" life with Sharon Carter. A few Cap wannabes come out of the woodwork only to get injured and almost killed. Steve has to save one of them if I recall. I'm sure the idea has been revisited a few times.

The scene in question takes place somewhere in Captain America & The Falcon right after the Secret Empire Saga, but before Hawkeye convinces Cap to take on the identity of Nomad. I'd say issue 177 or 178.
It was a one page adventure of this Cap-4-a-Day. Biker "Scar" Turpin thought he was tough and could be the new Cap, but alas he was left battered and bruised after his first outing.

What was that shield made out of, paper?

The issue I was thinking of was Tales of Suspense #96. Fake Caps are popping up and getting hurt and in trouble after Cap announces his retirement. After one fake Cap(who actually knew a bit of judo and did fairly well against some crooks trying to rub him out) needed a save from Steve then Mr. Rogers decided it was time to become Cap again.
