Secret War Captain America and Crossbones

Crossbones is Red Skull's protege, so he's a mass murdering neo-Nazi. He's also one of the few Captain America villains they've made a minimate for. I think Crossbones brings the total number up to three.

To be fair there aren't that many memorable Captain America villains period.

Meanwhile, to get Crossbones I had to also get this Secret War Captain America. Not Secret Wars, the groundbreaking miniseries from Marvel. No, this was Secret War, Brian Michael Bendis' masturbatory spy thriller where a bunch of superheroes went to Latveria because it was revealed all the super villains got their super technology from the same place and not from the way shown in their actual origin stories. Oh, and Captain America wore a darker version of his costume because he was going into Latveria secretly. And that makes sense to someone somewhere.


  1. That Crossbones looks nice and yeah when you were darker versions of your clothes it makes you stealth-like lol.

  2. It's funny to me that they darken the blue parts of the costume but not the white parts? Isn't that the part that makes it mot stealthy? I mean, yeah, it was a bright blue, but ...white? Not exactly low-vis.
