Captain America: Symbol of Truth #12 Review by (April 26, 2023)

Review: The saga continues for our heroes with more of the epic battle in snow, followed by a sudden change of venue to the bottom of a mine shaft. And we get a glimpse into Bucky’s secret plan in joining forces with the White Wolf. Plus, a new player enters the game in a last page reveal: Black Widow. This second chapter is well done though it’s still a bit early to see how the big picture will shape up. More to come.

Comments: Cold War” Part 2 of 6.

Captain America: Symbol of Truth #12 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Story continued from CAPTAIN AMERICA: COLD WAR ALPHA #1. 

The four heroes are in Alaska fighting the militia: Captain America (Sam Wilson), Captain America (Steve Rogers), Misty Knight, and Sharon Carter. Sam Cap tells Steve Cap that no matter what Bucky Barnes thinks he is doing, releasing White Wolf from prison and giving him the Phrox army makes him a bad guy and he must go down. Steve agrees so, while the two women fight the milia groups known as the Tithed, the two Caps take on the Phrox generals. The battle devastates the ground and suddenly, Sharon falls into a hidden mine shaft; Misty jumps in after her, radioing the Caps as to what happened. Steve Cap arrives and goes into the shaft, followed by Sam Cap. The mine shaft collapses, sealing them all in. At the bottom of the shaft, the heroes discover people, refugees from the town above that was destroyed by the Tithed. Steve Cap tells Sam Cap that rescuing Bucky is no longer their priority: they must go to Dimension Z to stop the invasion at its source….

Meanwhile in Dimension Z, Ian Rogers is a prisoner in a cell that resembles a child’s bedroom. Bucky Barnes is trying to make him feel like he is an exile newly returned home and wants to know if Ian would fix his home dimension if he could. Bucky walks away and suddenly he is seized by Black Widow, who holds a knife to his throat and demands he tell her everything….
