Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #11 brings the epic battle between Captain America’s team and the Outer Circle’s MODOC to an explosive end. Unfortunately, Cap’s troubles are far from over.

Is It Good?

Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #11 brings the major arc to a close but doesn’t resolve much of anything. Why? Well, nothing is resolved because nothing has changed. How’s that for a non-answer? Do you want more? Let’s get into it.

When last we left Captain America and his patriotic friends, they were in a pitched battle against an enhanced and oversized MODOC-turned-MODOK. Roger Aubrey, aka Destroyer, paid the ultimate price for his participation in the battle, and Power, one of the Outer Circle members, led the charge to take Captain America out for good.

Now, Captain America and his patriotic friends defeat MODOK (with a little covert help from Bucky aka New Revolution), and the team takes a little time with a cookout to rest and re-assess.

If you want plenty of battlefield action, you get it. If you want little relationship-building moments, you get it. If you want Roger Aubry’s death and the arc up to this point to mean something, you don’t get it. By the last page, the final moments feel like this entire arc was a prelude to the upcoming Cold War event.

Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily, but when a creative team spends 11 issues with a whole lot of convoluted storytelling and misses the payoff, you can’t help feeling your time was wasted.

The best part of this issue, however, is Carnero’s art. The action is big, loud, and impactful. The characters all look powerful in their own right, and the violence feels truly threatening.

Final Thoughts:

Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #11 ends the major conflict against the Outer Circle (for now) with a big ol’ “meh.” Carnero’s action sequences are great, but the fight ends with a minor victory that doesn’t truly resolve anything. It feels like the conclusion goes soft as a setup for better things in the next event, which is a poor excuse for an ending.
