Captain America: Winter in America is written by Ta-Nehisi Coates and focuses on Captain America dealing with the aftermath of Hydra’s take over in Secret Empire. Mostly this means Cap has been hunting down the last of Hydra’s “Nuke” super soldiers on his own as he is trying to protect the public, a public that many still view as the face of Hydra. However, it soon becomes clear that there are more threats coming for Rogers and his girlfriend, Sharon Carter, than just Hydra. Some of which are from the American government itself.
What I think I love the most about this comic is the fact Coates does a great job at emphasizing the fact the Steve Rogers is the man out of time. You get a look into Captain America’s mind as too how he sees modern day America versus the American he came from. He also deals with the fact that he is only Captain America in name, not as a hero to the people or the Government, who dislikes his active vigilante work he is doing alongside the Winter Soldier, Bucky Barnes. Yet despite this, Coates emphasizes the fact Cap doesn’t let his personal feelings stop him from doing what is right. He knows the Government and the people are no longer his supporters, but that doesn’t mean he is going to stop fighting for what he believes in and that is what makes him one of the best superheroes there is.
I can’t really say much more without spoiling the comic, which is something I don’t want to do. I’m giving Winter in America an A+ and HIGHLY recommend you check this one out, especially if you are craving more Marvel action after Endgame. Guys stay tuned for the next review and as always thank you for reading. Until next time, Signal Out!
