Captain America and the Falcon #6 Review by (March 20, 2012)
Review: The star of this issue is the Scarlet Witch, who freezes time, scolds Cap, then comes on to him in a very seductive manner. What’s going on? The latest twist in the story is arc is that clearly someone is messing around with Cap’s mind//couldn’t you guess? Unlike most such surprises, this one is actually intriguing.

Comments: Comments: “Captain America and the Falcon Disassembled” is on the cover, tying in with the Avengers event going on at this time. The Falcon does not appear on the cover. Cameo by Phil Sheldon, the Daily Bugle photographer and focal character of the classic MARVELS.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Captain America and the Falcon #6 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Captain America and the Falcon are fighting their way past Navy troops in the crowded newsroom of the Daily Bugle. Falcon reveals he knew Jimmy Westbrook was wearing a bullet-proof vest when he shot him and he has no intention of being taken to jail, especially since the "crimes" he committed were under orders from Westbrook of the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI). Cap tries to persuade him to try for a peaceful resolution but Falcon derides Cap for breaking rules when he sees fit. J. Jonah Jameson, shocked that the Falcon has turned into a gun-toting thug, refuses to stand by while he escapes and pursues him. Meanwhile, in the midst of the melee Cap’s shield suddenly freezes in mid-air: the Scarlet Witch has arrived and slowed down time to allow Cap and her to talk. She is dismayed that Cap ordered her away from the danger when she is also an Avenger and they seem about to kiss…when Yellowjacket (Hank Pym) intervenes to tell Cap they were successful in synthesizing patches to prevent the captive Anti-Cap from going into withdrawal. Wanda reviews the facts thus far: Cap and the Falcon were under orders to capture the Navy’s Super-Sailor, the Anti-Cap, and on the mission they discovered a deadly virus and now Cap is refusing to turn either one over to the government. Hank drops the bombshell: the item they were after is not a virus, but a DNA sample—of someone they know..... Omoro from the Wakandan Embassy arrives and gives the Falcon a new costume designed by T’Challa. As the heroes depart, Nick Fury and Jimmy Westbrook argue over the political ramifications, until they are interrupted by Damocles Rivas, "the Saint" and brother to the Cuban druglord murdered by the Anti-Cap (issue #1). He has a proposition….

As the Falcon tests the functionality of his new holographic wings, Cap enters a cab, only to find the disguised Wanda//who becomes an elderly Hispanic man//and the cab fills with water and freezes Cap solid//to be taunted by Bucky as he tries to disarm the bomb on Zemo’s drone plane, and the explosion hurls Cap into the water//where he freezes//and sees Wanda behind the wheel of the cab//and Cap smashes through the very real ice, confusing the elderly cabbie….

Cap arrives at the Wakandan Embassy where he finds the Scarlet Witch in costume waiting for him. The sight of his prisoner causes him to flash back to his first meeting with Bucky//and he presents the AVS patch to the Anti-Cap//then sees Bucky die once more//and himself frozen in the ice//and he awakens in the arms of the terrified Wanda, as he wonders if his guilt over Bucky’s death is causing him to crack. Wanda leans in and kisses him, and he responds….
