Ed Brubaker finally unveils his master plan for reviving the Cap of the '50s - he's now a right-wing nut, with a burgeoning army to boot (ably filled by a Mark Gruenwald creation, the Watchdogs). no offense to the actual residents of Boise, Idaho - there are some serious crazies out there. with all the files S.H.I.E.L.D. or rather, Nick Fury has, how could they not track the insane William Burnside to his hometown? Bucky Cap and the Falcon cook up a plan to infiltrate the lunatic fringe, but Bad Cap may just be a couple of steps ahead of them. not sure how all of these ties into Siege (Fury mentions Osborn so that means it hasn't happened yet), and looks like a meaty side story before the launch of a post-Osborn Marvel Universe. hopefully, the (anti-climactic) last issue of Reborn also comes out before then.
