For some time now, Captain America has been split into two titles – Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson – each chronicling the respective journeys of two men taking up star-spangled shields, with the former being a secret Hydra agent and the latter being a bit more heroic.
Well, as of this August, Marvel will seemingly be paring down to one Cap title. The big mystery, however, is which man will remain the focus. Truth be told, we’re betting it’s Steve Rogers considering that a patriotic version of him stands proudly at the front of promo art for this fall’s Marvel Legacy one-shot, but I digress.
The official solicit for Captain America #25 is actually quite vague and doesn’t help matters, but here it is anyway:
NICK SPENCER (W) • JESÚS SAIZ (A/C)
KIRBY 100TH ANNIVERSARY VARIANT COVER BY JACK KIRBY VARIANT COVER BY JIM STERANKO
SECRET EMPIRE TIE-IN!
• TWO HEROES, ONE MANTLE, ZERO QUARTER!
48 PGS./Rated T+ …$4.99
If you were to ask me, everything hinges on whether this takes place before or after Secret Empire #10, which will serve as the finale to the mega crossover event. Considering that Marvel doesn’t put hard release dates on their advance solicitations, that really does make it harder to nail down the chronology of it all. Let’s just hope that everything ships in proper reading order because we sure as hell don’t want a repeat of the Captain America: Reborn/Who Will Wield The Shield? situation.
Tell us, who do you want to see come out on top in Captain America #25? Steve or Sam? Sound off in the usual place!
