Characters Appearing: Captain America, Iron Man, Rikki Barnes
Captain America #6
Issue(s): Captain America #6
As for the main story, Rob Liefeld has just given up at this point. So here's Cable fighting MODOK and Baron Zemo.
I mean, fuck it. This is awesome. I said Jim Lee should have just been allowed to do pin-ups, and Liefeld should have just done whatever weird shit he felt like, regardless of logic. The idea that comics should have "stories" that make "sense" is such 1980s thinking anyway. Just think of a cool idea, start the book off with "Suddenly!" and go to town!
In the end, Cable vows to find the lost Heroes or die trying. Which you might think means that he'll play a critical role in their Return-ing. But, uh, no.
Anyway, the same month that Onslaught pops up in a nuclear generator on Avengers Island, Cable is meditating his way into the Rebornverse (after quasi-appearing while disguised as Master Man in previous issues). The walls were crumbling down. Also, this is Liefeld's last issue. He was fired for deadline issues and disappointing sales (and because everyone hated him).
The Faces of Captain America:
Quality Rating: D
Chronological Placement Considerations: The end of this issue is the final part of Industrial Revolution. The main story presumably takes place after that. The MCP have Cable here between Cable #42-43. Cable was "rummaging for clues amidst the wreckage" of Blaquesmith's old headquarters and also apparently doing "Askani meditations" when he "must have inadvertently tripped a damaged temporal displacement unit".
Crossover: Industrial Revolution
Continuity Insert? N
