The Rundown: The Daughters of Liberty have put their plan into action and Sharon Carter is overseeing each part as it unfolds.
The Foreigner is in play and the Daughters want him alive so they can get intel on the Power Elite’s plans, the real killer of Thunderbolt Ross and evidence that will exonerate Steve Rogers. When the Dryad gets the drop on him and his security, she finds that bringing him in isn’t as easy as she thought. Especially with Crossbones waiting in the wings with orders of his own.
With the riot continuing at the Myrmidon, Steve becomes the reluctant leader of an army of supervillains all trying to escape the facility. As his forces press their attack to get to the submarine bay, Von Strucker finds himself at the mercy of Misty Knight and Susan Storm as a betrayal may end Steve’s escape permanently.
The Story: Ta-Nehisi Coates nails the tension and intensity of Steve’s escape as well as showcasing how formidable the Daughters of Liberty can be. Steve can always pull off the “old soldier” narrative in both dialogue and narration, but I would like to see the character evolve more. In the wake of everything that has happened to and around him, it will be interesting to see how Steve changes and grows going forward.
The Art: Adam Kubert delivers some thrilling moments throughout the pages of this issue. There are great action beats throughout as well giving the story a sense of movement.
