The new Captain America series, Sentinel of Liberty, is given a sneak peek by Marvel. The folks over at Bleedingcool offer a first look at the upcoming Captain America relaunch. If you haven’t heard, Marvel is relaunching Captain America this May. After the release of Captain America #0, the series will split into two books. One will focus on Steve Roger’s version of the hero, while the other puts Sam Wilson behind the shield. This new preview gives a taste of what Steve Rogers will get up to this year.
A New Captain America Series…What Do We Know So Far?
While the first look at Sentinel of Liberty #1 doesn’t offer a lot of contexts, it does offer a taste of what readers can expect. The scenes show Steve Rogers gearing up in the stars and stripes to take on another threat to America. It also shows Rogers surveying a Fourth of July parade with his partner Bucky Barnes, aka Winter Soldier. There is also a glimpse of a fight between Captain America and a skull-masked villain. Clearly, there is some excitement waiting for Roger’s future.
Along with the previews, a description of the issue is given. As previously announced, we know that this new Captain America series will reveal a secret about Cap’s shield. This secret will have significant ramifications for the hero and what it means to wield it. That will apparently be a big theme for Sentinel of Liberty. The description claims that this secret will “change the way Steve Rogers views the 20th century”. It will also change the way he fights in the present.
Who is Handling Such a Big Moment In Steve Roger’s life?
Jackson Lanzing, Colin Kelly, and Carmen Carnero are teaming up for Sentinel of Liberty. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the creators explained that it would look at how both Rogers and America have changed over the years. “We’ve seen a radical shift in our country…a real fury and disappointment at what [it] have started to do to itself,” he shared. However, being Captain America, neither Rogers nor Wilson can turn their back on the changing country. They must simply learn and adapt.
Meanwhile, as they begin to change, it brings forth a whole new set of questions. Specifically, what does it mean to be Steve Roger, both in and out of the suit? And what exactly will Steve do to align with this new America.
Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #1 is on sale on June 1.
