It's like the 50-State Initiative: Chintzy Caps Corps...
United States Of Captain America 005 (of 5)

If you want the definition of "JOBBING" you don't need the dictionary or the CBMB -- Just read this finale to see the defeat of the combined forces of super soldier: Commander Krieger(name challenged Warrior Woman), SINful Arch Enemy Legacy: Superior, and powerful metaphysical rabble rousing canonical entity: Hate Monger, all, essentially defeated by a gathered handful of punching teenage Junior Sentinel of Liberty wannabes.

Meanwhile, evil supervillain Speed Demon gets a sympathetic ear 'cuz he hates Nazis as much as Magneto does. Avengers Academy gets namedropped - but remains shuttered (over 10yrs now?). USAgent brings real finger breaking damage *koff* to the enemy.

And now, with all these Cap stand-ins, maybe Stever Rogers will take time to meet his true potential as a Master Hypnotist if he can manage to figure out how his "magical" iconic shield was used to enthrall anyone in the United States. Next, there's this:

The ending seemed a bit rushed. We don't really see the villains putting up that good of a fight. The Hate Monger has been unused for so long, getting taken out one issue after being brought back seems a waste.

Probably the highlight was my hometown of Greensboro, NC and the Woolworth sit-ins getting a mention in the end. Irony: it made me curious enough to look up the writer of the mini. The top search engine results on just his name is of an infamous white-supremist!
