This last arc is interesting because it doesn't really focus on Captain America at all. There is no Captain America. I can't even really count Steve because he's relegated to passing information along to Sam or the rest of the Avengers. Instead, the story mostly focuses on Arnim Zola and his daughter Jet's relationship as her, Falcon, and Zola duke it out in the streets of New York. It's an interesting dynamic and characterization moment for both Zola and Jet that allows us to see another side to both characters during the climax of the series. Ultimately, though, why this issue is important is because we get to see what Falcon will potentially be like when he fills the shoes of Captain America. Needless to say, it has me excited. He should bring an interesting, yet familiar, take to Cap.

As usual, Carlos Pacheco's artwork is killer. His panel layout's and action scenes are dynamic and fluid. It truly feels like I am apart of the action. His covers have always been inspired and the best this series has offered. This issue is no exception. The cover is beautiful. I'll be looking forward to what he does next.

It's strange, even though we have a semblance of an idea of where this story is going due to all of the major announcements from Marvel, it's still a thrilling issue. Only one issue left, I can't wait to see how it ends.
