Captain America #8

Writer Ed Brubaker's "Powerless" story arc continues which means we get more of skinny pre-Super-Soldier Serium Steve Rogers who finds himself at the mercy of a mob whose anger has been fueled by a Madbomb.

I haven't been the biggest fan of this story arc, but it hasn't turned me off the comic either. There's a nice action sequence where Captain America and Sharon Carter get some revenge on Cobra, Eel, and Viper. We also get a glimpse at how imposing Sharon Carter can be in the interrogation room and learn the villains are working with Codename: Bravo.

I feel like I missed a page (or three) as Sharon comes to the conclusion of what villain is behind Cap's regression back to Skinny Steve Rogers. It's possible Cobra let this slip off-panel in Sharon's interrogation but I just don't see him knowing that much of the operation. Worth a look.
