An authorities agent “CAPTAIN AMERICA / IRON MAN #1” turned Hydra provocateur levels a daring breakout on her solution to jail, attracting the eye of each Iron Man and Captain America. When Steve and Tony perceive they ever have a connection to the slippery fugitive, the crew as a lot as observing her down solely to search out she’s not the one participant on the board with huge plans and sinister motives…
Captain America/Iron Man #1 is written by Derek Landy, illustrated by Angel Uzenata, colored by Rachelle Rosenberg, and lettered by VC’s Joe Caramagna. It’s revealed by Marvel Comics. Years in the past, Tony Stark had a fling with scientist Veronica Eden and accepted her software to S.H.I.E.L.D. Within the current, Eden is being tried for infiltrating S.H.I.E.L.D. on behalf of Hydra. Whereas Eden is being transported to jail, she is liberated by the previous hero Fifty-One, which attracts the eye of Captain America and Iron Man.
Captain America and Iron Man have had a curler coaster of a friendship. Not solely have the duo been longtime members of the Avengers, however in addition they butted heads over the Superhuman Registration Act throughout the Civil Battle storyline. Landy tackles this relationship in his script, with Cap immediately deducing that Iron Man slept with Eden and Iron Man put out that the occupants of a bus flock to Cap when he helped save mentioned bus. There are additionally some hilarious moments, together with a dialogue of Iron Man’s “lengthy hair and stubble part” and Cap actually dropping a bike on a Hydra thug.
Landy’s script moreover picks up from his Falcon and Winter Soldier miniseries, along with storylines from Civil Battle and its aftermath. Fifty-One, and a bunch of heroes often known as the Paladins, have been a part of the “Initiative” that Iron Man designed to coach new heroes. However, that coaching didn’t actually repay because the Paladins are cocky and leap headfirst into battle without a plan. The risk is unquestionably one which requires the presence of each Avenger, resulting from Iron Man’s historical past with Eden and Cap’s longtime battle with Hydra in its numerous kinds.
Uzenata, who has served as an illustrator on the present Iron Man sequence, is a talented hand at drawing the Armored Avenger. A splash web page options Iron Man hovering over a packed freeway and in addition partaking in the aerial fight with Fifty-One. Uzenata additionally attracts some nice Captain America sequences, with the star-spangled Avenger locked in a livid automobile chase towards Eden’s minions. And the design for Fifty-One is totally unsettling; his gaunt, greyish pores and skin and jet black eyes are a pointy distinction to the armored blue go well with he wears. Rosenberg provides every character a definite coloration palette, with Iron Man sporting his trademark pink and gold armor and Captain America sporting the pink-white, and blues. Eden, in distinction, sports activities principally darkish reds and greys with the one vibrant coloration being a streak of pink in her golden blonde hair. That very same pink hue covers her phrase captions, which seem fairly regularly as she’s the narrator of the problem.
Captain America/Iron Man #1 highlights the sophisticated friendship between the Sentinel of Liberty and the Armored Avenger, while additionally putting them towards a risk that ties into each of their histories. Although it is a miniseries, I wouldn’t thoughts seeing extra team-ups between Cap and Iron Man sooner or later.
