Captain America #7 Review by (January 30, 2019)

Review: And this title still feels like we've seen it all before, during Ed Brubaker's early run. Even Bernie Rosenthal goes the Brubaker route: a colorless brunette with no personality, included merely because she's an old-timey regular the writer felt obligated to bring back. And I get it that She-Hulk as his attorney would not fit into the dark and realistic tone the title is going for (and Cap wanted Matt Murdock but Matt couldn't see him). The most interesting bit is already being talked about: the new team of heroines who are implied to be the latest incarnation of an older team: the Daughters of Liberty! We'll have to see where this goes because this may be where Ta-Nehisi Coates gives his Cap run some character of its own.

Comments: Steve Rogers does not appear in his Captain America guise. Cameo by the Kingpin. First (brief) appearance of the Daughters of Liberty, though the context implies that they have been around for some time.

Captain America #7 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Selene visits Baron Strucker, who turned against the most recent version of Hydra and was rewarded by being given charge of The Myrmidon, a prisoner for super-people. Selene is there to gain assurance that this prison would hold Steve Rogers....

Steve Rogers, accused of the murder of General Thunderbolt Ross, and Sharon Carter are consulting with his lawyer Bernie Rosenthal; she points out that Steve's alibi is Sharon, which isn't strong enough—and that Ross was killed by an object that closely resembles a shield. Her advice? Turn himself in to the authorities....

Meanwhile, Winter Soldier has invaded the Bar with No Name and is beating up the denizens to find out who really killed Ross. All of his thrashing yields nothing: none of these lowlifes knows anything. One of them, the Owl, accuses Bucky of taking out on them the bitterness of his discovery that his hero Cap is no better than the villains....

When Bucky fails to come up with anything, Steve decides that to take back the dream and take back his country, he must submit to it. [Alexa Lukin learns he has surrendered to the authorities and calls Selene with the news.] But Steve does not have the shield and refuses to tell Nick Fury Jr. where it is....

Sharon has the shield and she heads into a mysterious underground facility where she summons the Daughters of Liberty—an all-female team consisting of Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew), Invisible Woman, Mockingbird, Misty Knight, Echo, White Tiger, and Annabelle Riggs/Valkyrie....
