Interesting read...I imagine a similar type sequence in the Avengers at some point..

It actually raises some continuity issues.

Cap saved Bucky in November '43. The comic says Cap disappeared in '43. So he was fighting Hydra for a month before he disappeared?

It contradicts the previous Captain America tie-i, First Vengeance, which shows Cap fighting during April, 1944.

I also prefer the movie version of the events. Someone just happened to stumble upon the Valkyrie bomber.

@GraphicCity: I tried going thru Marvel's site directly, but the same black screen appears.

Well, the screen is black, may take a while to load depending on your internet connection.

@Nephillim True. Hopefully the next 7 installments are a little more revealing. Was cool to know that S.H.I.E.L.D. knew where Banner was all along.

Awesome. Fury is already going against the grain. True to his badass character.

Totally see your point about the dates. In First Vengeance Cap is still knocking off HYDRA bases in 1944.

Yet in 1943 in this comic he is going down (so to speak) with the Valkyrie.

Not great continuity. You'd think whoever was writing this would have read First Vengeance.

CA:TFA ends with V-E Day. I'm going to put "1943" into discontinuity.

@whatevillurks

I'm with you dude. Cap has to disappear pretty close to VE day - Howard Stark is still looking for him (and finds the cube) the very next scene after the VE Day celebrations. Jeez - 1943?? Do these guys who do this stuff even watch the films or read the comics???

And from my best guess work I think 'contemporary day' is early 2009. Banner in the bottling plant and Tony tinkering with his armour.

Nice!

Perfect buildup for The Avengers.

To bad they are not all for free.

Odd.

At the end of Thor, Fury looked like the cat who got the cream when he presented the Cube to Selvig. Now we're meant to be believe he's miffed about it?

Ultimately, as long as Marvel Studios get everything we NEED to know into the final movie edit I couldn't give a rats a-hole about extra online content.

@Mothman sorry mate no continuity problem apart from the 1943 date in this comic..which may be a mistake idk.

1.Thor's Return: my guess is he uses one of the natural portals that connect the worlds that Loki mentioned in the Thor movie. I think the story will go something like this: Heimdall or Odin become aware of Lokis presence on Earth and informs Thor. Thor now concerned for Midgard/ jane and eric's safety wants to get back to midgard but unaware of how to get there. Theres 2 things i think that could happen in the movie and here they are:
A. Odin or heimdall inform him of another way to earth apart from the bifrost, he makes his way to the natural bridge and goes to earth. Remember in Thor right at the beggining Odin is telling the story of the battle between the FG's and the Asgardians, huge amounts of soldiers from both sides came down at once, and when you think of it the bifrost didnt look like it was capable of sending that many asgardians soldiers through at once. Plus the jotuns had to have made their way to earth some how.
B. Like in the comics Thor is given the ability to use mjolnir to create portals through space. he may then use that ability to go to earth.

Iron Man issue: They want iron man but before they can allow him on the team Tony stark has to prove him self worthy, plus at that point they only want to use him as a consultant, and yes i also noticed that the chest piece was not visible but thats because he was wearing his Black Sabbath T shirt on top.

Hulk: Actually the world sceurity council wanted Emil blonsky aka the Abomination on the team but sheild didnt think that was a good idea and...cant remember how the rest goes but just watch the First marvel one shot that came with the Thor movie check it up here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPniREtObRM sorry couldnt embed it. plus the matter on controlling the hulk who the hell knws, we will see how banners relationship with the hulk developed.

Cap A: Hes a Super soldier plus he was in suspended animation, its possible look at Walt disney and cryogenics.

War Machine: i have a feeling, just feeling that Rohdey may make an apperance as war machine fending off another city from lokis army if they became global, which may happen, or he may be on duty and may not have access to the war machine suit.

:) hope that cleared some stuff up. Well most of the questions/ mysteries will be answered in April/ May

Avengers Assemble!!

@knossis

There's nothing in the cinematic timelines which suggests Cap has been discovered BEFORE Fury meets Selvig. On the contrary, we know that at the end of Iron Man 2 SHIELD is still monitoring the Greenland area. Neither Coulson or Fury are there (Fury's with Stark, Coulson is on his way to New Mexico saving gas stations along the way).

After this point we know that the remaining events of Thor take place in the space of a few days and it all kicks off for Banner in NY. We can assume that Abomination is detained before Coulson can get anywhere near Greenland as Coulson has two "The Consultant" meetings with a fellow agent in what appears to be a diner in New Mexico. In fact, this leads me to believe that the NY Hulk showdown is over before Thor has even proved himself worthy of Mjolnir.

Now it's conceivable that Coulson and Fury then meet up and head to Greenland, only for Fury to be re-tasked to Project Pegasus. This is when I would expect the meeting with Selvig to take place. Erego, Cap is still in ice at this point.

Now, I've drawn this conclusion solely on what I've gleaned from the movies/shorts made by Marvel Studios. Unless you can point to some comicbook tie in that I haven't seen which references a reanimated Steve Rogers before Fury meets Selvig, then my first instinct is to say that Cap's arrival is the last thing to happen in the shared universe timeline before the vents of The Avengers.

As for the Cube and SHIELD's inability to figure it out, it does seem sloppy that a 1940's scientist can harness it's power yet years of US Government funding can't tap it at all. I think that we will see some revelation about Howard Stark and his work in relation to the Cube, seemingly recreating an inferior version by way of the Arc Reactor, ultimately leading to the creation of Iron Man. (Notice how Hydra's weapons sound exactly like those of Iron Man's).

It's not that SHIELD, Howard, Selvig or Tony cannot figure out how to use the cube, what happens is the cube seems to be "deactivated". The Supreme council guy told Fury that they need to "reignite" the tesseract; meaning that somehow it's not working now the way it worked for Hydra in the 40's.

At least that's my guess, we'll find out on May
