Ignoring the TREMENDOUS urge to micro-analyze the continuity aspects and to dissect the retconned Bucky personality this was a ENJOYABLE story to read about CAPTAIN AMERICA as told thru the eyes of Logan.
Wolverine Origins 18
-hated the cover. Blech*: Uniformed HYDRA (when did they chronologically first sport the standard greens?) NOT in the story and Logan IN his cowboy hat.
-Previously Page compliment(??!!): good to show credit of Simon&Kirby
-very nice clean style art
-narration of the 'Cap' story is still effectively Wolverine-centric
-well THAT answers that about my CAP31 review question lower on the MB... Bucky was (retconned) a bully in WWII
-"Eventually he'd show us all."
-Is Djerba reference first seen in this arc?
-Logan meat Nick before Cap did? And here?
-"It WASN'T a joke."
-Nick was rightly well informed to the comical surprise of Cap. (Do we know the Brit[?] equally informed there)
-even with his recovered memories, did Logan know Romulus at that point?
-continuity attention paid to the Widow/Strucker arc is evident
-Bucky making the call of what Cap 'need to know' seemed wrong. Not the fact that Cap was not entirely in the loop.
-Bucky keeping secrets from Cap of personal missions would not likely lead to their classic strong friendship. Not only a bully but an assassin at 16... hmmph
-"Yeah he actually said that." Calling him James at that moment had meaning
-Bucky with the bloody dagger panel seemed like it should've had a bubbly border since Logan at best could imagine that scenario
-eyes on Logan
-that answers that about Cap and guns, at least to this creative team
-neat tidbit of how SHIELD got it's name
-I've seen repeated story moments where the hero volunteers his weapon to a minor character to a minor character for combat but the passing of the shield here had a refreshing new angle to it
-"BECAUSE HE TOLD ME TOO." Perfect characterization of why Logan has followed Cap's lead in many a Marvel adventure
-Cap carries TWO packs... Perfect.
-"I'm going up the middle." Perfect.
-Double splash... Perfect... no wait a minute shouldn't he have his original shield??
-Cap passing the buck AFTER the fight makes bureaucratic sense as Cap's scowl shows
-Fury sparing a character from Limbo works too
-the ending gave some self contained story satisfaction
