Captain America #49 Review by (April 9, 2010)
The perfect issue for all of you who said, “Who cares about the Red Skull, Hydra, and other threats to the nation? I wanna see a comic all about Captain America’s love life!”

Sam Wilson has a thing for Salma Hayek. Just sayin’.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Captain America #49 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

While on a fishing vacation to an Idaho lake, Sam Wilson takes the opportunity to give Steve Rogers a bit of friendly advice: settle things with Connie Ferrari so that he can get on with his life. Steve takes his advice and literally zooms out of there in the Qunijet, tracking Connie to an Ohio town. She tells him that her problem was that he didn’t trust her and asks if he thinks of himself as Steve Rogers…or Captain America. He can’t give her the answer she wants to hear. This helps Steve clarify what he didn’t realize he wanted all along….

New York: SHIELD Agent 13 Sharon Carter infiltrates a high-rise office, battling a team of sumo samurai (!) to shut down a computer virus. Captain America arrives and stands back to let her work. When the threat is neutralized, he confesses that he made a mistake in trying to maintain two lives ("This really would have worked better over dinner and wine," she says); when he realized he only needed to be one person, his heart led him back to her. They smooch. Sam Wilson, back in Idaho, figures it was worth it.
