Captain America: The Coming Of... The Man-Brute!
In this era of endlessly spun-out, end endlessly dull, sagas designed for the trade collection, here's a one-off issue of Cap that'll make you appreciate even more the skill involved in doing a single issue story.
Apart from a brief retelling of the origin ( and even that has a purpose ), there is literally no fat on Stan's script here, it all functions like clockwork and everything comes together at the end perfectly. With Gene Colan & Joe Sinnott as well, this really is a masterclass in how to do it.
Please don't tell me The Man-Brute ever came back and ruined this one.
