"At the moment, Sam is in a state of transition. He feels guilty about his relationship with Steve Rogers and wonders if he didn't pick up clues as to what team Steve was really playing for what else has he missed? So he's backing away from the limelight for a spell and taking a more grass roots approach to making the world a better place." - Rodney Barnes

Just wanted to say thank you again to everyone who sent nice words about the end of our Cap run this week. It’ll take some time and distance but as it stands this is maybe the finished work I am most proud of in my career. But a lot of that really comes from the audience, and seeing what this story, and especially Sam’s journey, meant to so many readers. Seeing that is an experience I will always remember, thanks for letting me be a part of it. -- Nick Spencer

Long time readers probably notice that if anything, the politics are less heavy handed nowadays. There was absolutely nothing subtle about the messages in 80s comics. It's just you were younger when you read them. -- Nick Spencer

People, if Tony Stark can figure out how to create a holo-AI version of himself, I promise you he can figure out how to put a hoodie on it. -- Nick Spencer

"Earlier in my reviews of this run, I commented that Spencer’s version of Sam Wilson reminded me a lot of President Barack Obama. Now that we’ve had more time with him, I see that he’s much more than that. He’s every black person that’s ever had to think about where they fall in the battle of injustice. He’s every one that’s been given power and had it stripped away. Which, eventually, boils down to practically every minority in America. [...] This current run of Captain America: Sam Wilson is going to end up on the syllabus of a really liberal, young-minded sociology professor one day." -- Black Nerd Problems

"[Sam Wilson] is by far the most nervewracking assignment I've ever had, because I constantly worry I'm getting something wrong (and I'm sure I have). But it's been worth it." -- Nick Spencer

"I absolutely believe you can write superhero comics where violence is either peripheral, or even entirely absent. The point of superhero comics is to inspire people to try to be their best selves. They're about people trying to help others and make the world a better place, not a more violent one. Now of course, they take place in a fantasy world where certain things, like vigilantism, are laudable. But even still- I try to find ways to make sure the violence is either justified by some moral criteria, or as an incomplete solution. Usually, the violence in my books is stuff that passes the time until someone comes up with the real solution. Though I've by no means got a perfect record on this front- again, fantasy world, "good" violence, all part of the show. Still try. Some superheroes really benefit from tacking towards nonviolence btw: Superman and Fantastic Four come to mind immediately. Cap, in my mind, comes very close to the line- he's a soldier, but he should always be reluctant to fight. Has to be a necessity. Same for Sam, btw, which is why my favorite arc is Americops, because really, it all kicks off with him trying to PREVENT a fight." -- Nick Spencer

For some reason, seeing pages of CIVIL WAR II: THE OATH and hearing about the upcoming SECRET EMPIRE story got me thinking about the first Nomad Story. Specifically a part of the end.



CAPTAIN AMERICA #183 took place while Steve Rogers was the Nomad. (He was depressed that Number One of the Secret Empire turned out to be a high-ranking White House official who might have been Richard Nixon, who knows?)
