Post the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War and disagreements between Iron Man and Captain America, who is now shield-less, the latter seems to be hard at work trying to stop a terrorist group. Though ISIS in not exactly referred to or mentioned in the comic, an ISIS flag can be seen illustrated on a van.
Captain America and his team, which includes Falcon and the Black Widow are seen working to put an end to the terrorist outfit which appears to have got themselves access to some ‘Chitauri-fueled weapons.’ In the comic, the Chitauri are a group of alien shape-shifters who have futuristic looking weapons and makes an appearance in Marvel’s ‘The Avengers.’ The group is responsible for causing chaos and mayhem in New York City.
Captain America and his team heads over to Syria and then to Lebanon. The team intends to take out a number of alien weapons exchange facilities. All this occurs while the group operates beyond the US government’s jurisdiction and also the American military, after going underground following ‘Captain America: Civil War.’
Usually comics that come off as prequels follow the same ground as the most recent films of the franchise in a bid to keep fans freshly updated before the next film. But for Captain America, writer Will Corona Pilgrim and artist Tigh Walker, showcase new scenes that fans will really want to know about.
It is quite unlikely to see a lot of comics take on real life terror groups, but to see Marvel go very close to it is cool.
