I don't think Cap knows this but he was only suppose to be peak human. But looks nice, will pick up the first issue.

I can definitely dig a mini-story by Diggle.

Ugh, I'm a little annoyed that Marvel told Adi Granov to change Cap from having a gun in his hand...

Apparently, before the series was renamed to "Living Legend" in one of the pages previewed above, Cap was originally holding a gun in his hand.

But for whatever reason, Marvel asked that the gun be removed...I find it odd that they would do that, as it's an obvious WWII flashback and all of the other characters have guns...

@war_killer That's odd....it isn't as though Cap hasn't used guns plenty in WWII.....

Wait? The shield can do that?? Was there a weapon update i missed out on?

The shield's durable enough to take a hit from Odinforce Thor, and Cap possesses enhanced strength. Cap throwing it to cut off a tank's turret is kinda par the course.

I just find it odd as it seems a bit random not to mention makes Cap look silly on the second page of the preview, as he was originally holding a gun in his right hand but now it appears he's just holding his hand up...like he's waving. Just seems completely unnecessary.

Yeah, agreed.

The image looks more like him saying: "Uh, I, uhm, volunteer for problem."

i never knew that the sheild was sharp. And always figured that was because vibranium can absorb any kind of force
