Captain Americas Unite In First Look At Generations One-Shot

Now that we have the epic battle that was Steve Rogers versus Steve Rogers which took place in Secret Empire #10 behind us, we can look forward to something a little more uplifting. As it turns out, it’ll come in the form of a Generations one-shot that’ll unite Captain Americas Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson. Yes, after a year or so of all that Hydra jazz, the American Dream is finally alive and well.

By now, you’re probably aware of what the Generations concept is, but just in case you’re not, we’ll give you the gist of it. Basically, fan favorites past and present have been brought together via the Vanishing Point, thereby allowing team-ups of heroes who’ve adopted various mantles to take place. Aside from the one being discussed today, other noteworthy one-shots in this line include Thors Jane Foster and Odinson, Wolverines Logan and X-23, and Phoenix and Jean Grey. If you’re experiencing a headache, we fully understand why.

Obviously, not all readers are going to purchase each and every one-shot that’ll be published, but The Americas may warrant a closer look. If you need a little more convincing though, Marvel SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort may be able to give the nudge you require:

“GENERATIONS: SAM WILSON CAPTAIN AMERICA & STEVE ROGERS CAPTAIN AMERICA is the capstone to Nick Spencer’s epic run on both incarnations of the star-spangled hero, his final statement on what it means to be Captain America, as Sam Wilson finds himself in a war not his own alongside a very young man who’s been given the opportunity to fight and to inspire—but who could use a little bit of inspiration himself.”

From that, we’re able to gather that this is a must read for anybody who has been following Nick Spencer’s run to date. Furthermore, he’ll reunite with artist Paul Renaud (Captain America: Sam Wilson) in “a story that sets the stage for the future of the Marvel Universe.” Yes, that does sound like a bit of hyperbole, but we’re inclined to believe it in this case.

Generations: The Americas #1 arrives in comic shops on September 27.
