...seriously? Steve gets Ian in Dimension Z, and while every character bonding is skipped over, we have several issues of them in this dimension, enough to understand, why they see each other as father and son. Sharon has basically the same experiences...but COMPLETELY offpanel. That's...disappointing. In fact, I'd rather see the story of Sharon, being together with the kid she just shot, who was her boyfriends "son", in a hostile dimension, than Steves little adventure. And when we see Sharon again here, first she's bound and helpless, later she looses in a fight with canon fodder and has to be rescued. Earlier in this run one commenter remarked, an issue doesn't pass the Bechdel-Test. While that was true (and I think only two issues actually pass it, one with Jet talking to Sharon, and one with Maria interrogating Jet), I argued, the test itself wasn't that precise a tool to measure female-friendly media. By this point however, there are enough signs and tropes involved, to make it clear: The author doesn't really make an effort to treat women as equal beings in this story. He fills the quota a bit with Jet, and has to use certain characters like Sharon (who he shoved to the side, where he could) and Maria Hill, but overall, women at most complicate the life of the men in this magazine. It's a more subtle way of sexism, but it's there. Which doesn't mean this run is awful - but it certainly fails in an important sector.

Overall, some fights here, some fights there, Falcon comes to a conclusion to stop the bomb, accidentally activates it, and since Iron Man is incapacitated, Falcon does the final sacrifice and flies the bomb out of reach. Considering the preview pictures of what happens to Cap in the next month, I'm guessing, some kind of switch happened right before that...but let's wait and see. Let's especially wait, since I'm at the end of Unlimited-Cap for now, the final issue will have to wait, until it's viewable. Maybe I'll check up on how Thor got a sex-change until then...
