The Rundown: Sam Wilson takes up the shield again as he goes after a train that might be carrying something dangerous.
Acting on a tip from Misty Knight, Sam Wilson dons his Captain America uniform and takes to the skies over the southwest to intercept a train that might be carrying components of the super soldier serum to an unknown buyer. Joaquin joins him on the mission as Falcon and the pair find themselves dealing with some impressive resistance as they attempt to board the train.
In the aftermath of the fight, the heroes are left with more questions than answers as they don’t find the cargo they’re looking for and what they do find is connected to one of them directly. At the same time, one of Sam’s toughest enemies is visited in prison with a proposal that will allow him to help destroy two nations and kill Captain America.
The Story: Onyebuchi crafts an entertaining and engaging story in this first issue. There is some great action and thrills throughout as well as a good story that focuses on Sam and his struggles as Captain America. The plot has a great energy and the tension was great. Everything led to some great reveals that have me intrigued with where the story might go next.
The Art: Silva delivers some impressive art. The story is action focused and Silva brings that out with thrilling angles, movements and fight scenes.
