Tensions between Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson begin to erupt this spring during the Captain America: Cold War event. Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson have embarked on their own adventures in their sister titles, Captain America: Sentinel of Freedom and Captain America: symbol of truth, respectively, but their stories will collide in their first crossover. Marvel announced Captain America: Cold War at New York Comic Con, and the crossover will be the next chapter in Captain America’s 80-year history. The Cold War officially kicks off in April and Marvel has revealed new details about the story, including a one-shot.
Captain America: Cold War is described as a “spy-fueled action thriller” that pays off the plotting currently taking place in the two Captain America series: the rise of the Outer Circle and its connection to Steve Rogers; the return of Steve’s adopted son Ian Rogers, aka Nomad; Sam Wilson’s conflict with Wakanda and White Wolf; and the Winter Soldier’s new mission as the Outer Circle’s new revolution.

Captain America and Winter Soldier are at war against each other
Captain America: Sentinel of Freedom #6 saw the dissolution of the friendship between Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes. In the previous issue, Winter Soldier killed a character called The Revolution, a member of the Outer Circle. Revolution presented Bucky Barnes with a choice: kill him and take his place in the Century Game, or remain the pawn of the Outer Circle. Naturally, Winter Soldier knocked down The Revolution, even shooting through Steve Rogers in the process.
Captain America tried to beg Winter Soldier not to play the Outer Circle’s game, stating that they could work together to take them down. However, Bucky disagreed, believing the only way to stop them is from within. With the time for words past, the two Marvel heroes began to strike blows, fighting for dominance over the other. Their fight was reminiscent of that between Captain America and Iron Man Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Two friends with different points of view are driven to fight each other. It’s a bloody battle, but Winter Soldier finally won as he sacrificed his metal arm to drop Cap out of the Outer Circle’s flying base.
