There were a lot of things I liked about Armageddon, which was actually a very interesting and subtle story. One of its less subtle but most enjoyable virtues, though, was seeing Cap kicking everybody's ass. After seeing him get turned into the butt monkey in Formerly Known as the Justice League and in JLU (repeatedly), despite being, on paper at least, the most powerful DC superhero after the Spectre, this was a great change of pace
I have to respectfully disagree. I thought this mini was a train wreck, and I read it four times because of the hot Angie/Atom drippy liquid sky sex. There's the pointless fight with the Wildc.a.t.s. - who, by the way, don't attack people without provocation either - the bad characterization of Majestic, who is the Wildstorm verse's version of Superman and is not to be trifled with - and how easily Zealot goes down. (She's far, far more than a combination of Wonder Woman and Elektra, by the way, although that's an interesting description. She's almost as powerful as Majestic, and she's older than recorded history, an alien, immortal, and has been training to fight since she was a young girl on Khera. She's Coda, and she is not to be fucked with.) The only person I felt who was in character was Angie, and sadly she wasn't in this mini that much.
But I *did* like Cap's characterization in that it did indeed show that he really didn't want to be fighting everyone. And there were a few moments where Grifter was spot on.
I wonder if Rucka will acknowledge this mini as being in continuity. I kind of hope so, because I started to ship Angie and Atom because of it.
