Captain America’s Post-CIVIL WAR Fate Has Been Revealed

Warning: There are spoilers ahead for the Avengers: Infinity War Prelude comic. If you don’t want to know anything, turn back now!

Somewhere between Captain America: Civil War and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, Steve Rogers grew out a magnificent lumberjack beard and got a new costume. But the man formerly known as Cap hasn’t just been chillin’ in Wakanda while waiting for the next crisis to strike! This week, Marvel released the Avengers: Infinity War Prelude comic, which serves as an in-canon story about the gap between the two movies. Today’s Nerdist News is declassifying those events and getting you up-to-date intel on some of your favorite Avengers.

Join host and America’s favorite substitute Avenger, Jessica Chobot, as she runs down the biggest revelations from the Infinity War Prelude. Starting with Steve, it appears that his renegade Avengers have become a three-person anti-terrorist strike team. Steve, Falcon, and Black Widow have united to take on Earthbound threats who have armed themselves with Chitauri tech from the Battle of New York while Hawkeye and Ant-Man have left the team to reunite with their families.

The Scarlet Witch and Vision have also left their respective sides and apparently reconciled on the way towards a real relationship. Vision’s even using his human disguise that was glimpsed in the Infinity War trailer. As for Bucky, the former Winter Soldier may be in for some very good news. Despite going back in suspended animation at the end of Civil War, Bucky’s mind is being rebooted by Black Panther‘s sister (and possibly the smartest woman in the world), Shuri.

But where’s Tony Stark in all of this? It’s not clear if Tony knows that Thanos is coming, but he is constructing the new Iron Man armor from the trailer. It’s also apparent that Tony feels abandoned by the rest of the team, and he’s contemplating facing the next threat alone. All of this was just from the first issue. Next month, Avengers: Infinity War Prelude #2 will catch up with Marvel’s cosmic characters and possibly shed some light on where the Guardians of the Galaxy have been in the four-year time gap between Vol. 2 and Infinity War.
