Review of "Captain America: Man Out of Time Part 1," by Mark Waid et. al.

Review of
Captain America: Man Out of Time Part 1, by Mark Waid et. al. ISBN 9781599619361

Four out of five stars
 This is another iteration of a story that has been told several times. At the height of the Second World War, super-soldier Captain America and his sidekick Bucky Barnes are lost while on a mission. Decades later in the twenty-first century, the early Avengers find Captain America encased in ice and in a state of suspended animation. They are able to revive him and when Iron Man examines his shield, he understands that it really is Captain America.
 When he walks the streets of New York City while in full costume, Cap is in full sensory overload as it is clear that he no longer understands the world. When he moves to the aid of a damsel in distress, he finds that his help is not appreciated in the way he expected.
 This is the opening segment of another reboot of the Captain America franchise, this time he is revived sixty years after being lost. It is targeted at the young adult audience and it is a solid opening to a five-part story.
