Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today, to celebrate the birth of the United States, I figured a cool Captain America moment would be appropos, and here’s one of the cooler one from Infinity Gauntlet #4.
The gist of the scene is that Thanos, who was omnipotent up until this point, was convinced to shed a LITTLE bit of his omnipotence so that a battle with all the remaining superheroes (Thanos has already killed half the universe) would actually be a little fun and not a foregone conclusion.
Still, he ends up slaughtering them all – all save Captain America (well, and a couple of heroes like Adam Warlock and Silver Surfer, who remained in reserve).
It’s a great scene for Cap by Jim Starlin and Ron Lim, showing how tough Cap is – the guy stares down the guy who just slaughtered tons of heroes right in front of Cap’s eyes! And after he destroys Cap’s shield, Cap STILL takes a swing at him, just to see if that would work!
I say the swing is “the” moment – what do you folks think?
Happy Fourth of July!
