Y'know, that Kirkman Cap run isn't spectacular, but it's sturdy Mighty Marvel action for whole issues at a time.And it's got Batroc.
I don't think those years are quite right...
You're right, Phillip; I had forgotten to update my template for the second date. Corrected now. Thanks for the eagle eye!
I know that the shield is all strong and made from a funky alloy and such...still, having a 200 lb Batroc land on your upper body, must still hurt like the dickens.Not to mention the second one, where his feet apparently explode.
Not that the physics make any sense, Sally but (enter fanbull mode) if I recall correctly, the shield is made of a vibranium/adamantium compound. The vibranium portion is important because it absorbs all the kinetic energy expelled upon it. Therefore, Cap doesn't feel the strike or the weight, apparently.Which doesn't make any real sense if you think it through. If the shield absorbed energy like that it wouldn't rebound as directly (or maybe even at all) when Cap throws it in a ricochet. So therefore, it's all pseudoscience that acts however it wants to depending on each story.Or, magical elves.
Maybe it's just because it's so different then what came before it, but I love the Kirkman run on Cap. No politics, just a big messy love letter to the Gruenwald era. Not perfect, just really fun.
