Find yourself a Cap 350.  Sums up the whole story arc, plus retells the origin of the Red Skull.

Nothing that spikes lately is worth what people are paying, but that doesnt stop them.

This is really a stretch and a garbage book to boot.  If people buy this to speculate they are riding the short bus.

This is actually the second time it's took a jump because of Avengers. First was the Age of Ultron scene where they are all trying to pick it up.

I did some more research, you were right. Thanks for the info, gonna pass on that hundred dollar gamble lol

I never read that era of Captain America. "The Captain". I retract my earlier statement. It's a cool key, not worth what people think imo though.

You should. Cap #332-350 is Mark Gruenwald's finest run, ever, and one of the best runs in Cap history. You're missing out.

The only reason Cap didn't lift Mjolnir in that AoU scene is because he realized it would freak out Thor. He clearly could have done it.

But I'm not sure what relevance that scene or the book have to Endgame, since Thor no longer has Mjolnir in the movies.

No offense, but perhaps you should do your research before you speak . . .

Because a misinformed app posted about it so it has to be relevant.

He’s right.  It’s a stretch.  I don’t expect customers at shows down the road to be clamoring for this book.  ‘The book where Cap first picks up Thor’s hammer’? - greater fool theory book.

Flip now.

It's revealing the gaping cracks in the "speculation" community when they grasp at the most tenuous of straws. Even if there was an entire movie based on Cap picking up Thor's hammer, and that movie inexplicably did $1.3 billion at the box office, I doubt this book would ever be more than a novelty. "Picking up Thor's hammer"...euphemisms aside...doesn't quite carry the panache, of, say, first time Jason Todd puts on the Robin costume, or first time Superman and Batman meet.

‘First time Thor polishes Cap’s shield’, anyone?

Have these issues ever been collected in a TPB or does one have to pick up the originals to read the run?

Which is a pretty common observation of any "marketplace" . . . oh say, over the last several centuries. :whistle:  :bigsmile:

This is what you're looking for:

Although, to be honest, it seems buying the original issues would be cheaper.

Yeah, exactly.  Flip now.  Strike while the iron is hot.

I dunno . . . I think calling it a "garbage book" is the only stretch here:
