This was an event featuring characters and plots from various comics, films and TV series in the Marvel Universe!

Some time during the event Steve Rogers aka Captain America came into play. And now there's another Captain America making his way to the island.

Who is Sam Wilson?

Sam Wilson was once a military paratrooper who was secretly trained in air combat with a special wingpack. After losing his wingman during a mission, he ended his career and went on to work in a self-help group for soldiers.

After S.H.I.E.L.D. was infiltrated by Hydra and Captain America was on the run, he began helping his new friend and became an Avenger. He later inherited Steve's shield and became the new Captain America.
