Yea... No thanks.

You can read from Ross himself over at CBR on the "redesign" for the "new" Cap, but man, I just don't see it. Of what supposedly culls from 40's serials combined with modern elements, to me just reeks of 90's-ish pastiche. While there seems to be a conscious effort to stay away from Ultimates Cap, at least Ultimates Cap has a high recognition factor (I happen to think all Hitch's designs on Ultimates characters are pretty damn awesome). With this Ross design, all I can think is "What the hell?" Ross' pics are all over the place, and they do lean towards the "Ross-ness" he parlays so well. Handed over to the apt talents of Steve Epting as shown here, the oddity is only magnified.
