The White Wolf’s latest attack has put Falcon in critical condition and sparked a civil war in Mohannda. When Sam Wilson’s role as Captain America prevents him from pursuing his own justice on an international scale, his government contact sets him up with a surprising new partner – an old ally long thought dead. It’s the return of IAN ROGERS, A.K.A. NOMAD! But will Ian’s return be a blessing or a curse?
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: An intense and entertaining action thriller from Onyebuchi. The story has great action throughout and an engaging conflict between Sam and Ian. I enjoyed seeing their conflicting styles and the tension that they bring to each moment. I cannot wait to see what happens with Falcon as well and what it will mean for his character going forward The Art: Guara delivers some beautiful and impressive visuals throughout. The action is thrilling visually and the details are beautiful.
COMICONA face from the past complicates the present as ‘Captain America: Symbol Of Truth’ continues to pit the title character against unseen forces around the world as he showcases what his version of Captain America will be. An intriguing issue that is heavily focused on two characters and a conflict, moving the plot forward a bit with some solid action scenes and colorful moments.
Marvel Heroes LibraryAnd the Ian Rogers version of Nomad returns even though no one has missed him in seven years; the comic ignores his participation in HAIL HYDRA, using his apparent death in ALL-NEW CAPTAIN AMERICA #6 as his final appearance. And yet again, Captain America is paired with a more violent partner, which has happened with surprising regularity over the years, likely starting with the Winter Soldier. And as usual he is dropped into a situation that requires him to a) follow orders and b) protect someone instead of killing. We’ll have to see if there is anything more to Ian than the usual one-dimensional murder machine. With the introduction of Bathabile and the little girl, we are beginning to put a human face on the war which makes for some good drama. The more interesting bit is what’s happening to the Falcon, which takes the cover of the next issue—and threatens to have body horror supplant political intrigue. See you then.

ComicBook.comIf you were reading Rick Remender and John Romita Jr.'s run on Captain America back in 2012, then seeing the return of Ian Rogers/Nomad is a real treat. Sam Wilson moves from one sidekick to another, as he and Nomad infiltrate Mohannda together. The art takes a notable decline but still keeps the same tone from previous issues. A new wildcard by the name of Bathabile is introduced, who I'm assuming will be an important character in the "Pax Mohannda" story arc.
Weird Science Marvel ComicsWhatever Tochi Onyebuchi intended to do with the first issue in this new arc has been completely abandoned in Captain America: Symbol of Truth #7. Sam forces his way into a Civil War on foreign soil because he chooses to do so, forgetting the plot elements set up in the previous issue and doing nothing to progress the plot in this issue. The art’s great, but the story is an utter miss.
