Plot: For Steve Rogers, awakening after decades of suspended animation involves more than catching up on pop culture; it also means that this old school idealist must face a world of subtler threats and difficult moral complexities. That comes clear when Director Nick Fury is killed by the mysterious assassin, the Winter Soldier, but not before warning Rogers that SHIELD has been subverted by its enemies. When Rogers acts on Fury’s warning to trust no one there, he is branded as a traitor by the organization. Now a fugitive, Captain America must get to the bottom of this deadly mystery with the help of the Black Widow and his new friend, The Falcon. However, the battle will be costly for the Sentinel of Liberty, with Rogers finding enemies where he least expects them while learning that the Winter Soldier looks disturbingly familiar.
Verdict: Marvel Betrayal
Story: So we have seen what happened to Tony Stark after the Avengers now it is time to look at Captain America. He has learnt to adapt to the future, but still hasn’t really made any new friends. This story shows how the SHIELD has been compromised and Captain America has become the villain, he must clear his name and find out what has happened and who is responsible. Seems simple really, we have a few personal battles like Captain America and The Winter Soldier true identity. In the end it is a welcome addition to the series and with a post credits scene that really builds to the next chapter but in the end I found this just another average comic book story that is important to the series but not the most memorable. (7/10)
Chris Evans: Captain America now used to the future but when Nick Fury is killed, he is the only one who can uncover the truth, but he does bring along a couple of familiar faces and a few new faces that are welcome allies. He has to prove who was responsible before he is taken out but SHEILD. Good performance from Evans who is growing into the role as the films come. (9/10)
Samuel L. Jackson: Nick Fury planning to always be one step ahead at SHIELD he gets blocked out of the system before being target by assassins. Fury would eventually return to Captain America for help before he is killed leading to everything else that happens. Good supporting performance with typical Jackson intensity. (8/10)
Scarlett Johansson: Black Widow the deadly assassin who teams up with Captain to uncover the truth, with her brilliant combat skills she makes a great addition to the team. Good performance showing her kick ass skills. (8/10)
