I don't know if anybody else noticed this but there are some similarities between some of the depictions and real life ? Youth joining a uniformed group that are street level enforcers ? Secret police that ferret out "traitors" ? and a leader that starts off super popular then grinds his nation into the ground ? I think Modi is messing with Steve's head to show him how he could turn out like the people he started fighting all those years ago, well played I think.

Considering the time jumps to three years ahead on the final page, it's almost certainly a mind manipulation.

I was excited about Captain Britain - is he even still alive? - and Spider-Woman, and I still am about Sue, but that's about it.
I have nothing against Humphries (I'm actually quite excited for his upcoming Uncanny X-Force) but the book isn't keeping up with the other Ultimate titles, not by a long shot.
