Captain America and the Mighty Avengers #1 review: 8/10! Sam Wilson and Luke Cage show no mercy | Newsarama

Captain America and the Mighty Avengers #1 (Published by Marvel Comics; Review by Draven Katayama; ‘Rama Rating: 8 out of 10): Al Ewing’s new story starts off serious and then unexpectedly gives us rapid-fire comedic moments: a villain dressed somewhat like The Princess Bride‘s Westley refers to one of his goons as “Henchman #3.” Ewing’s humor reaches career-defining levels in a hilarious scene where Peter Parker gives a rambling, pathetic apology to Luke Cage. Luke Ross makes both set pieces and action scenes look good, from the detailed facade of the Gem Theater to when Sam Wilson punches and kicks a roomful of thugs. I especially like Rachelle Rosenberg’s colors in an early close-up of Sam’s ruby goggles, and the clothing of new character Soraya Khorasani. Showing Sam and Luke Cage as cruel and cold is a fun inversion, and Ewing writes it well.
