Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson are hot on the trail of the shield thief, but their adversary remains one step ahead, and he has friends in low places. Some of Captain America's oldest enemies are behind this scheme, but can Sam and Steve figure out who these enemies are and what they want, in time to stop them?
And in a story by Mohale Mashigo (MARVEL VOICES: LEGACY) and Natacha Bustos (MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR): Who is Nichelle Wright, the Captain America of Harrisburg? And will her community stand up for her when the shield thief frames her for a terrible crime?
The new Captain America-themed miniseries written by Christopher Cantwell and a rotating team of writers and artists will spotlight five new characters inspired by Steve Rogers to defend their communities. The series will also co-star previous shieldbearers Falcon, Winter Soldier and US Agent, who are all currently appearing in Disney+'s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
