Captain America: Symbol of Truth #7 Review by (November 30, 2022)

Review: And 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.

Comments: Ian Rogers was introduced in CAPTAIN AMERICA (2012 series) as the son of Armin Zola in Dimension Z, kidnapped by Captain America (Steve Rogers) and raised as his son. Escaping back to the regular world, Ian became Nomad, sidekick to Sam Wilson Cap in ALL-NEW CAPTAIN AMERICA; he was apparently killed in an explosion in issue #6 of that series but his final appearance until now was in the miniseries HAIL HYDRA (part of the SECRET WARS 3 event) in 2015.
