I’m really enjoying this new series. They throw a ton of easter eggs into every episode and there’s stuff for the old fans and the new fans. Old fans will get a kick out of such characters as Dough Boy and that (technically) the fourth episode of the series is when they found Cap. It was the 4th issue of the comic that they found Cap in.

I love the larger story they are setting up, with Hydra and the Black Panther. Good stuff. And is that a Masters of Evil setup I see?

This episode was the return of Captain America and it hit all the right notes. They do a good job at showing Caps feeling of being alone and out of time. There’s a good emphasis on Cap’s role as a soldier, in how he refers to Iron Man as “Soldier”. There’s even what could be seen as hinting at the relationship between Cap and the Wasp from the Ultimates.

Cap’s ‘saving the day’ in this episode was a bit forced as he really didn’t do anything other then utter a name, which then led Pym to figure out what to do. It would have been nice if it had been done with Cap in more of the tactician/leadership role that we’re used to him in. Instead he shows up and helps out, but doesn’t really do it in Cap-Fashion.

The rest of the episode is great, even the Black Panther’s limited appearance. His ‘save the day’ moment was excellant. It seems like his use in this series might have tones of Christopher Priest’s Black Panther series, where the Panther only joined the Avengers to spy on them and see what kind of threat to Wakanda they were.

I’m not a big fan of the voice used for Captain America. The others I have no problems with, and Caps isn’t enough to hurt the show. It’s just not what I was hoping for.
