Considering his name is in the title, Sam Wilson doesn't get the most play in this issue of Captain America: Sam Wilson. Well, it is the 75th Anniversary issue.
And you know what's coming. You've seen the cover to Captain America: Steve Rogers #1
Did you know that shield splits in two now?
But anyway, a change is coming. And for Steve Rogers not a moment too soon. Showing his octogenarian age….
And many have speculated that the one who does the changing is Kobik, the sentient cosmic cube that takes the form of a little girl. And it's true we see her at the scene of the crime in the Avengers Standoff crossover event currently taking place in the Avengers titles.
And as she says, she wants everyone to be happy like they used to be. Which gives her the motivation. But the actual scene prior to Steve Rogers' transformation portrays the catalyst slightly differently.
