CAP #22 - The Brube & Perkins - Out Today . . .
So . . . this issue is Agent 13 chatting with a SHIELD psychiatrist in the wake of CIVIL WAR #1. She's torn between her natural loathing for superheroes and her love for Cap. There's a nice sequence where you think she's betrayed him, only for it turn out that she purposefully told SHIELD the wrong spot for an ambush. It's a really nicely choreographed scene.
Anywho, the psychiatrist turns out to be a blast from the past . . . Dr. Faustus! And he supposedly manipulated Sharon into falling for Cap! And he's working for the Red Skull/Lukin!
All around, a great issue. Perkins does a superb job.
On the "Civil War" front, not much happens. It's mostly about SHIELD's perspective in light of the attack on Cap, with Ed doing some spin control to keep characters like Sharon and Dum-Dum from seeming like total assholes. And I love Skull's line about the heroes "forgetting who their real enemy is."
