Red Skull is shown as a truly frightening villain, a depiction that you will never, ever forget. The Avengers “black ops” division is also incredibly interesting. It’s the sort of dysfunctional personalities that the Suicide Squad wishes they could be. I won’t give any spoilers, but just when I thought it couldn’t get any more morally tricky, I have to admit that Red Skull’s monologue at the end really pulled at my heartstrings. Thankfully Nick Fury’s response woke me up, so I won’t make the mistake of ever feeling any emotions ever again (ever). The art is incredible too.

One thing I have to point out, this is mostly a Captain America story. Even though the story revolves around Cap, the supporting cast, particularly Hawkeye, play pivotal and just plain fun roles that bring the story to life. And you should also know that these are not the Ultimates or the Marvel 616 Universe Avengers here. Cap, Hawkeye, and Fury are the only members of the classic lineup from The Ultimates team. This team is named “Project:Avengers”. Cap isn’t part of the team – he’s being hunted by them for finding out something he never knew, and his knowledge of this info and the action he takes may jeopardize the Avengers’ mission. Fury runs this new team, which he calls his “death squad”(although Cap is not the one they are aiming to kill – they just want to subdue him so that he’s out of the way). Aside from Hawkeye, the rest of the team is completely new and fresh. This new team of what basically amounts to highly skilled/superpowered mercenaries gives the book an element of dark, edgy, suspenseful violence. The black ops angle is really played up. And it works. The contrast between the darker story elements and vivid, bold and colorful artwork creates a sumptuous read that you will want to read again as soon as you finish it.
