Bingo. Using the original storyline was going to be a tall order. Captured by evil commies, and he built his super suit to escape??? While I fully believe in honoring the spirit and feel of the classic comic material, some of it is just outdated. Same thing with the original Fantastic Four issue...did any one complianing REALLY read that thing recently (in the past couple of years)...I have...yikes...can we say "dated."
