Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #5 Review by (October 5, 2022)

Review: So here we are, the good guys finally taking the battle to the enemy. There’s more Outer Circle posturing, likely because in the Marvel Universe there have been many secret societies controlling world event in the Twentieth Century, apparently without bumping into one another. Following the pattern since the first issue, the individual issues are nice and very well done but the big picture remains maddingly vague; here’s hoping it all comes together by the end.

Comments: Written by Jackson Lanzing & Collin Kelly. Issue includes a tribute to the late Mike Pasciullo, Marvel marketing executive.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #5 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

The members of the Outer Circle meet and all are mad at The Revolution for bringing Captain America to their Capitol and they expect to see his scheme fail….

Cap, Winter Soldier, and the Starpoint called Redacted parachute down through a hologram cover and land on a huge orbiting station that is patterned after Cap’s shield. Cap sends Redacted off for his part of the mission (the part with explosions). Giant hologram images of the Outer Circle appear above Cap and Bucky and explain how they have controlled history for much of the Twentieth Century…and now for the Twenty-First they will kill Captain America. They are suddenly surrounded by the Tithed, the Outer Circle’s set of controlled troops. A female soldier named Staci gets the drop on Cap and he tells her that she can put down her gun, all she need do is let go. She does and discovers that the Outer Circle’s threat of instant death by explosion did not happen. More soldiers see this and do the same—because Redacted has destroyed the tower controlling the bombs implanted in their uniforms. Cap and Bucky crash into the main building to confront The Revolution, the only member of the Outer Circle who has not fled. The villain addresses Bucky, revealing that the Outer Circle has caused every incident in his life to make him first be Captain America’s sidekick, subtly controlling the hero and then, when that failed, having him recreated as the Winter Soldier. Bucky asks Cap to leave but Cap refuses, trying to talk Bucky out of violence and interposing his body between Bucky and The Revolution. Bucky fires his gun, the bullet passing through Cap and striking the villain….
