This is how you fix a "head" problem

Ed Brubaker (RE: King of everything) fills in the void left in my heart from the ending of "Incognito" by giving me the third issue of "Captain America: Reborn". So, in the previous issues, Captain America has been thrown and lost throughout the time-stream of his life. Sharon Carter interrupted some type of time-warpy thing. Doctor Who calls it "Timey Whimey" stuff. Anyways, Cap is conscious for his entire trip down his memory lane, not knowing what is going on or if he is losing his mind. His consciousness jumps into the Kree-Skrull war, where he tells the Vision that he is going to give him a message to upload to the Avengers computer, then forget that he ever told him anything. Hmmmm, this is gonna be sweet.

Then, in the regular timeline, Bucky had got detained by Norman Osborn's Thunderbolts. Scourge and The Ghost begin to mock Bucky by taunting him with Cap's shield. The Falcon busts into their quinjet through the cockpit and kicks some ass. The Antman, wo is starting to question his alliance with the Thunderbolts, frees Bucky. Bucky kicks the living shit out of The Scourge.

Reed Richards and Namor go to the secret site where they left Steve Rogers's body to rest in the Arctic. Before their eyes, Steve's body disappears. Namor flips out because he had tasked himself with protecting the body.

OK, all this shit is pretty cool, I know. But, that's not even the best part.

The Red Skull has been monitoring the whole Sharon Carter situation and various other Cap related incidents on some screens. The Red Skull's kids show up and tell him that they have been looking for him. Then this happens:

Ed Brubaker, you know how to write a comic book.
