Yu's work is so dang good.

Shit... why did Doctor Strange wipe Cap's memory? And did Cap use the Infinity Gauntlet?
dio - 5/11/2014, 6:19 PM
@Snooper....I think this one is supposed to "Shake the Marvel Universe to it's core". The one before this and the next one are "changing the marvel universe forever".

The house of ideas, everybody!
AlSimmons - 5/11/2014, 6:21 PM
@mgeoff88 Yeah, but it was in an alternate universe when he used it so all the gems were destroyed except for the time gem.

A big time boner this artwork gives me

*yoda voice*

Cap looks quite sinister in that last scan.
ThePowerCosmic - 5/11/2014, 6:27 PM
Awesome Event so far!
Skintastic - 5/11/2014, 6:32 PM

Tk421 - 5/11/2014, 6:42 PM
Is it just me , or does Cap look a little like Thanos in the last frame with the Gauntlet on.....?
marvel72 - 5/11/2014, 6:44 PM

GLprime2814 - 5/11/2014, 6:51 PM
I remeter when zatana mind wiped batman. But other than they I like the first issue.
Amazing512 - 5/11/2014, 7:03 PM
I remember my jaw dropping when they mind wiped Cap.
mctrinket - 5/11/2014, 7:50 PM
I really dig the artwork.

Downey should rock the shorter hair in his next MCU film.
beane2099 - 5/11/2014, 8:56 PM
I know they're making for new readers who likely didn't read that issue of New Avengers but how many times do we need to see the same events played out in a book that's only 20 pages? It's in the recap and then in the first few pages - literally the same stuff. Just seems repetitive is all.
ManCalledSting - 5/11/2014, 9:13 PM
Will this event pit hero vs hero, and friend vs friend?
TheFanOfEverything - 5/11/2014, 9:18 PM
I can't wait for Original Sin to hit the trade paperback
GizmoDLC - 5/11/2014, 9:21 PM
At least the coloring is correct in this one. When Hickman first showed the gems the colorist [frick]ed up.
hbk82287 - 5/11/2014, 9:47 PM
@TK421, no its not just you.

All the gems broke except for the Time gem, there's a good chance it will be popping back up some time soon.

So...was the "sin" Dr. Strange wiping Cap's mind or was it what the Illuminati did AFTER they gave Cap the magical roofie?

Trust me, Gusto's going to want to know!

Boring as far...
Googs - 5/12/2014, 3:50 AM
Oh man, i love this one! This is the one where zatanna wipes captain america's brain so that he forgets that one time when doctor light raped the watcher. Great original storytelling!
loki668 - 5/12/2014, 3:54 AM
Yes. Because, before Identity Crisis, mind-wiping had never been done before, right?
DanteSparda - 5/12/2014, 7:29 AM
Finally shit is getting real in the comics!
RajunRemyLebeau - 5/12/2014, 11:02 AM
Marvel event + Actually interest = We have just divided by zero

@glasspleiades: lol

Hickman is my favorite Avengers writer of the 21st century. I love it.
