All-New Captain America #3 Review by (January 18, 2015)
Comments: Falcon’s backstory is so complicated, it would be easier just to read the Wikipedia article. Nomad appears in only one panel, as a corpse. Nick Fury and the Howling Commandoes appear in a single panel, only Fury and Dum Dum Dugan are recognizable. Additional coloring by Dono Sanches Almara

Review: Okay issue introduces a time travel element (I think—Sin calls it a simulation at one point) that lets Sam Cap experience World War 2. Unfortunately what it leads to is the “Sam or Snap” mind games that became tedious and confusing years ago. Sam shrugs it all off as a desperate tactic to discourage him; looks like a desperate pretext to give him an “I am Captain America” moment. Otherwise it’s a pretty good tale of psychological manipulation and heroism, if a little too pat.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

All-New Captain America #3 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

New Captain America Sam Wilson and Misty Knight return through the teleportation device/elevator from Bagalia to find Nomad dead, his throat cut by Baron Zemo. Misty has to talk him into overcoming his despair and continuing on his urgent mission. Cap heads though the elevator to find himself on a World War 2 battlefield and realizes Hydra is trying to change history. As he looks on he sees Nick Fury and the Howling Commandoes killed by tank fire. Sin, the Red Skull’s daughter, emerges from the tank and orders him taken prisoner. Soon Cap is chained down to a small tank while Sin describes how she is going to break him. She repeats the old deception about how Sam was an inner city criminal turned into a hero by the Red Skull’s use of the Cosmic Cube in a plot to trap Captain America. Cap breaks his chains and confronts Sin. She coolly reveals that her Sisters of Sin are poised throughout the USA to assassinate all of Sam’s family members. She reasons that simply killing the new Captain America will make him a hero and call down the vengeance of Steve Rogers and the other Avengers. Her plan is simpler: he will drop his Falcon wings off a cliff and then leap to a disgraceful death or his family dies. As she counts down his five-second limit, he calmly throws his wings over the edge and steps off the cliff. Sin rushes to report her victory to Baron Zemo, Taskmaster, and the others via a telescreen. Zemo announces that the moment to detonate the bombs across all the locations. Hydra members all inject themselves with the sterility formula. She gloats over how she has proved herself superior to her father—just before Cap flies up and clobbers her. His wings were caught and returned by Redwing in midair. She dashes off to launch the bomb and Cap hurls his shield causing the huge device to tip over. Cap tries to rescue Sin but she kicks him away and is crushed by the falling bomb. It detonates as Cap heads back to civilization to save the world….
