Captain America: Symbol of Truth #1

Not much to elaborate; it was passable. It felt like readers are just mundanely thrown into the mix of Sam (and Misty's) current status quo. The art was okay in spite of the staccato action choreography. Here's a bulletin board's diligently censored/vetted copypasta chanonymous 0-DAY online blurbs this issue - and a couple added. You should add your reaction to the mix.

> CAPTAIN AMERICA SOARS AGAIN! Sam Wilson picks up the shield once more—and enters a world of trouble! Following a lead from Misty Knight, Sam intercepts a mysterious group hijacking what appears to be an empty train. As he digs deeper, he discovers that the plot may be connected to a crucial piece of Captain America history…and, surprisingly, Wakanda. The world is ready for two Captain Americas—but is Sam Wilson ready for what comes next? Acclaimed writer Tochi Onyebuchi (BLACK PANTHER LEGENDS, Riot Baby) teams with Stormbreaker R.B. Silva (POWERS OF X, INFERNO, FANTASTIC FOUR) to open a thrilling new chapter of CAPTAIN AMERICA history!

Feels like a lazy status quo reset for her from Sam's last Cap stint.

Yes. This. Specifically 'cuz Steve still sports the symbolic suit.

Disagree. OG Falcon never got the same creative push that DC has given Nightwing.

"Kewl" helicopter sequence was way too matter-of-factly presented. ie. Unclear in ways.

That was pretty good actually: pace, characters bits, art. I just wish they stopped using Crossbones so often. He's not such an interesting villain

Ooh. So THAT'S what happened.

> I'm blah about the book. c+, but if they go as predictable as I think with "anti immigration senator", and "super soldier bullshit", I'm bailing. If they pull out something good with the White Wolf I might actually buy the damm thing. I'm interested enough to give issue 2 a shot. There is the dumb branding problem. I had no idea Steve had a book. But they just asked for that when they gave Sam the shield, and no different name. They really should have went with Captain Falcon.

> To me, the problem isn't that Crossbones is not interesting, I don't think he's that compelling of a villain either, he's just a higher ranked goon so I'm okay with him being a sub-boss at best, but more of the fact that he's just some dude. He's Frank Castle if Frank decided he liked working for Nazis and was just a shittier person in general. Steve destroying the shit out of an 80-meter-tall robot without even resorting to his shield, and the asshole with guns and a skull motif just doesn't feel like he measures up anymore.
It's a fairly neat meet up as a tease - but we'll have to see. It's good to see CB's starting point is in prison and not a Revolving Door.

It was a bit out of character, to date, in some ways. The escalation of the violence might be his excuse.

Just to be pedantic, there was a golden-age Falcon. But, everyone seems to have forgotten about him and Sam as the Falcon was never meant to be a legacy hero to that guy. But, if people are going to be talking about the "first" Falcon...

However, I am of the camp that Sam is better as the Falcon, his own man and identity. He was Cap's partner, not replacement-in-training. Sam is worthy to carry the shield, but he's also worthy to do it under his own name, as an equal. Then, turning around and giving his identity to an Hispanic guy, that just seems to be compounding the error.
