COMICS: First Look At WHAT IF? AGE OF ULTRON #4; A World Without Captain America

In the latest instalment of What If? Age of Ultron, we're shown a world in which Captain America was found by The Avengers, but didn't survive his fall into the ocean decades earlier. How does this impact America and Ultron's invasion years later? Well, The Punisher takes over Cap's mantle for a start...

• In a world without Captain America, the United States has lost its spirit, its inspiration.
• A secret cabal unites to create a new Captain America in the nation’s most trying time.
• The war veteran Frank Castle is transformed into something far more than he ever imagined — but not everyone is Steve Rogers...

I see that the art is going for Bryan Hitch's style... I dislike his style and this imitator is even worse.

Castle wearing the stars and stripes is way too ridiculous.

There was a "What If" issue years back that played with the Frank-Castle-As-Cap idea...

It was a strange idea then, and it STILL is.

Punisher actually took up the Cap mantle for a minute after Cap died. It was bananas

These have been a fun read so far! That variant cover sucks though!

In actually enjoying these What Ifs a lot more than I enjoyed the normal Age of Ultron storyline.

Damn he must be pretty fudging brutal with that shield, i wanna see this.

Castle can definitely kick some ass but if he was given the super soldier serum..holy shit,heads would roll!
That would be a cool What If? story.

I'm down with captain punisher as much as the next guy, but that art is dog shit.
jlabatman - 4/21/2014, 8:42 AM
Interesting what if story

Hey, Castle...hows the family?

The "what if the punisher became cap America" was done before in what if - I'd say 15 years ago

Someone tell me why the Interior art is [frick]ing beautiful but the covers are terrible?!
campblood - 4/21/2014, 2:15 PM
I came up with this idea years ago and named him CAPITAL PUNISHMENT
case - 4/21/2014, 6:48 PM
Lol Gusto!!

...Why is there a bear wearing caps helmet?
TruePunishment - 4/21/2014, 10:37 PM
Maybe I should change my name to CaPunisher? Haha
dethpillow - 4/22/2014, 11:22 AM
@case - haha, yeah the bear is rad! i thought at first maybe it was Cap Wolf, but that wouldn't make any sense... did the bear ever really happen, I wonder?

it looks like he just found a piece of cloth with an A on it and glued to his head. rad bear.
