Captain America #10 Review by (June 19, 2024)

Review: Great! No evil penguins! The storyline of Cap picking up mutants for a future conflict continues, not quite so twee as last time, and a nifty action scene, with a bit of humor, too. If only JMS can maintain the tone on the near side of serious, we’ll be good.

Comments: Steve Rogers does not wear his Captain America outfit in this issue. Issue includes a tribute to the late Native American artist Jeffrey Veregge, who incorporated comic book heroes into his art and created some covers for Marvel.

Captain America #10 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Steve “Captain America” Rogers and Carlos “Skinz” Alvarez Garcia are in London’s West End, looking up the next person on Lyra’s list. Cap is contacted by their contact via a stranger’s phone and sent to a mysterious building whose entrance is a riddle Cap solves. They are greeted by a fellow named Raymond and ushered into a nightclub. They are introduced to the person they are seeking, a punk woman named Seer, who informs them that she doesn’t want to go with them as she has created her own safe space and wants to stay neutral in the upcoming war. She explains that her power involves being sensitive to electronic and other energy frequencies; this includes seeing probabilities, making her nearly psychic and much in demand by bad guys. She describes the sensation of being able to see through every video camera in the world simultaneously. She lets Cap try it for two seconds and he emerges shaken. Seer and Cap also both detected a helicopter full of soldiers landing on the roof. Soldiers crash through the windows, detonating smoke bombs. Skinz hustles Seer to safety as Cap takes on the troops. He takes them down in seconds…and then the leader calls in Teams B and C who surround Cap, ready to shoot him down. Seer is aware of this and uses her power to distract the soldiers for a second so that Cap can get out of the way just as the soldiers fire, killing each other.

After the carnage is over, Seer agrees to go with Cap and Skinz, seeing that her own safety measures aren’t safe at all. At a small airfield, she tells Steve that her real name, unused for so long, is Becca. She excuses herself to go to the restroom. There she contacts Death to tell him that she has been accepted by Cap and she exacts a promise to give her what she needs and that it will never be traced back to her. Death agrees, then Seer goes to join Cap on the plane….
