In the second issue of Captain America: Symbol of Truth, Sam Wilson tries to find Deadpool as part of his search for answers. This leads to a dangerous team-up.
Captain America is headed straight for Marvel’s “Merc with a Mouth.”
In Captain America: Symbol of Truth #2, Sam Wilson keeps looking for answers about where the Super-Soldier Serum went and why strange things are happening. He stops in Latveria at some point along the way to see if Deadpool knows anything useful. When the Avenger shows up, Sam’s fellow hero seems to be going through a much more violent kind of questioning.
Wade Wilson, also known as Deadpool, was made by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza and first appeared in New Mutants #98 in 1991. Deadpool has always been one of the most dangerous people in the Marvel Universe. He is a former mercenary who was given impossible powers by the same Weapon X program that made Wolverine. Wade has been a big part of teams like X-Force and the short-lived Avengers Unity Division over the years. Since his first appearance, Deadpool’s personality has become much less serious, which has helped the character reach unexpected heights in pop culture.
Sam Wilson’s first appearance in the Marvel Universe was in Captain America #117 from 1969. He was the Falcon. Sam was Cap’s loyal partner for many years before he took the mantle for himself when Steve Rogers was no longer able to do so. Even though Steve has come back since then, Sam has stayed as Captain America, making it clear that there can be more than one Star-Spangled Avenger.
Sam’s most recent adventure has been full of secrets. The return of White Wolf, a classic Marvel villain, has given Captain America: Symbol of Truth a mysterious tone. The events that are happening now are somehow connected to those in Wakanda. White Wolf has also hired Crossbones, who is another well-known but more dangerous villain who Captain America has met many times. The series is going on at the same time as Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty, in which Steve Rogers plays the title character and looks into his own huge conspiracy.
