In the coming Captain America # 0, both characters’ journeys start before Rogers becomes the focus of Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty and Wilson becomes the focus of Captain America: Symbol of Truth. The upcoming event starts in April before the new titles launch in May and June.
Marvel.com described the upcoming series, “2022 will mark a new era for Captain America, one that will launch two Captain America ongoing titles. Authors Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly and Marvel Stormbreaker artist Carmen Carnero will tell Steve Rogers’ adventures in Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty while author Tochi Onyebuchi and Marvel Stormbreaker artist RB Silva will see Sam Wilson soar as Captain America again in Captain America: Symbol of Truth. The journeys of both shield bearers begin in April Captain America # 0, where they will team up after an explosive attack by Arnim Zola. “
“What’s interesting about Captain America “0 is that, unlike many zeros, we are not going to spend a lot of time building the plot for both books or teasing out a lot of amazing things,” Lanzing shared. Weekly entertainment. “Issue # 1 will do that. Issue # 0 is actually a conversation between Steve and Sam about what it means for both of them to be Captain America at the same time. But that conversation does not take place in a room that sits down over beer, That conversation is being conducted while flying / holding on to the side of a massive rocket heading towards the sky to wipe out all of humanity, because Arnim Zola is back and he has a bad plan. “
Onyebuchi continued: “I’m a big fan of action thrillers involving foreign locals and all that. One of the things Sam has to do is get to the bottom of a conspiracy. He has to find out, what the truth of the matter is is that he has to figure out what’s really going on.When so much of US foreign policy has historically been based on operating in the shadows, manipulating federal employees or members of another government to implement regime change in favor of different corporate interests, what will it look like when Sam meets the people who want to manipulate him for their own purposes in promoting ‘America’s interests’ abroad? What does it mean to be’ The Truth’s symbol ‘in that context?’
While Wilson will be Captain America’s more public figure, Rogers will take a different approach to embracing identity.
“Steve is a member of the Greatest Generation. It’s so important, especially now because he’s seen so much of the 20th century and he’s really capable of weighing it,” Kelly pointed out. “With our history, what we really wanted was to start looking at how America has changed? What does it mean to be a patriot now? Because it means something very different, even in the last two or three years. We have seen a radical shift in our country and, especially for a lot of young people, a real rage and disappointment over what our country has started to do by itself.Cap can not turn its back on America, none of the Caps can because the Idea is good. The core is good and worth fighting for, but both must fight for what it means in the year 2022 of our Lord. “
Captain America # 0 will be on the shelves in April, while Captain America: Symbol of Truth debuts in May and Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty debuts in June.
