When two become one – The Spice Girls, written with Matt Rowe and Richard Stannard.
July 2017 sees the publication of Captain America: Sam Wilson #24 and Captain America: Steve Rogers #19.
The books initially split when Sam Wilson took on the role of America’s first patriot in All-New Captain America #1 in 2014. This later relaunched as Captain America: Sam Wilson in 2015 ahead of Steve Rogers returning to the character in Captain America: Steve Rogers five months later in 2016.
And the comics have published in tandem since.
But with Secret Empire, Steve Rogers revealed as a sleeper agent of Hydra, Director Of SHIELD and granted executive power in a takeover of the USA, the two have come to a slight head. Wilson retired the Captain America role before the takeover, and in Secret Empire #2 he is shown Wilson working with the underground smuggling people out of the USA.
Captain America #25. No Sam Wilson or Steve Rogers in the title.

Indeed it is counted on Diamond’s system as a comic book debut. Which it kinda is, I guess. What it becomes going forward, post Secret Empire with Captain America #26, is still to be determined. Steve and Sam in the same book? Captain Americas? Or something else entirely?
