I read some of Brubaker's Cap, but I didn't even consider it a retcon. These days practically every Marvel character is grittier than they used to be whether through a retcon or by just ignoring past continuity. I didn't think Cap was any different. I was still hoping we'd get classic Cap in the movie and not the one from JoeyQ's NuMarvel where you're not a true hero unless you're unlikable & have no problem killing villains.
