Captain America: Symbol of Truth #3 Review by (July 27, 2022)

Review: The plot thickens with Vibranium smuggling, Wakanda, and something weird going on in Mexico with Crossbones. This series is hitting its stride and I’m following the plot a bit better, waiting for it all to come together. So far they are avoiding the polarizing political edge that Nick Spencer brought to his Sam Cap series which frequently made me feel like the writer was yelling in my face. For now, it’s cool.

Comments: Issue includes a tribute to the late Neal Adams, comic book giant.

Captain America: Symbol of Truth #3 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Captain America (Sam Wilson) and Deadpool have been arrested in Latveria and brought before Doctor Doom with a list of charges being read. Cap explains that he was tracing a smuggling operation that would interest Doom. Doom replies that the smugglers are bringing in food and humanitarian aid in defiance of American sanctions. He allows Cap to go but with a warning to the US that the next incursion will be dealt with severely. Deadpool is ordered to stay….

Cap reports to Senator Mansfield that it is Vibranium being smuggled and he wants to contact Wakanda about a joint mission to find the bad guys….

Falcon (Joaquin Torres) carries Luisa into the mountains where he places her in a well-hidden SHIELD safe house. He asks how she got to the lab and she tells him that she was with a group leaving work in a company bus but this time they were gassed and she woke up in the lab. Falcon gives her a device that when activated sends a distress call to Redwing and from there to Cap or Falcon….

Sam visits a friend in Sing Sing and learns that the Wakanda Forever movement is growing stronger in the prison and the Vibranium smuggling may have ties to it….

Cap meets remotely with Princess Shuri and Prime Minister Folasade, explaining his suspicions that Vibranium is being smuggled out of Wakanda. He suggests a joint operation to locate and stop the smugglers but he is denied with Shuri citing national sovereignty issues….

So Sam applies for a visa to visit Wakanda, sponsored by the Wakanda Forever group….

In Nogales, Mexico, Falcon spies another company bus with a gas mask hidden under the driver’s seat. He follows the bus but is shot down with an EMP weapon by Crossbones. The bad guy has him put in a cage while the rest of the gang guards White Wolf’s Vibranium….

In the safe house, Luisa takes a small object from her shoe….
