Comic Book Synopsis / Plot

Written by Peter Silvestro

Captain America Sam Wilson broods over recent events: Rage was wrongly convicted of robbery. Supporters took to the streets to protest, calling for justice. The Americops fired on them with tear gas. TV host Harry Hauser spoke out defended the 'Cops with his inflammatory manner. Sam visited Rage in prison. Rage expressed hope that his case will force a consideration of the issues. Rage was transferred to Z Block, the prison wing for superhuman offenders. Sam addressed a crowd called for an end to violence and looting as part of the protests. Sam went to his brother Gideon's church, where Gideon prayed for Rage and a hope that justice would be done in response. In prison, Rage is beaten by convicts who were his enemies....

Now Sam waits in the hospital for news of his friend's condition. Claire Temple tells him that Elvin has suffered brain damage and is being kept alive only by machines. Sam sits by his friend's bedside and mourns....

Review: A bitter picture of injustice is grim and unsettling and exactly the thing I don't want to read about in my comics. Nevertheless, this is very well done if too heavy on rhetoric and self-importance, Spencer and Unzueta push all the right buttons and I hope it's all worth it in the end. Though I can't for the life of me see how this will play into the big SECRET EMPIRE event which the Steve Cap title is heading for.
