CBR Review: Captain America #611

I recently reviewed Captain America #611 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "'The Trial of Captain America' begins in this issue after Baron Zemo revealed the secret history of James Barnes as the Winter Soldier to the media. This issue examines the difference between the comic book and real worlds as the two butt heads. Usually, when a character has been mind controlled, it’s ignored and explained away quickly. Here, the opposing view is put forth that that isn’t necessarily good enough, that ‘superhero comic logic’ isn’t good enough. Not grim and gritty in its use of ‘real world logic,’ this issue reminds us that, even in the Marvel universe, there’s more consequences to actions than Steve Rogers vouching for someone can eliminate. James Barnes killed a lot of people and has to face the consequences if they’re deemed appropriate."
