This week, on the Major Spoilers Podcast, Stephen, Rodrigo, and Matthew take a look at the time Captain America stepped away from the red, white, and blue.

Captain America: Nomad
Writers: Steve Englehart/John Warner
Artists: Sal Buscema, Frank Robbins, Herb Trimpe

Disillusioned by government corruption, Steve Rogers lays down uniform and shield — but it’s not as easy to set aside half a lifetime of heroics, so a new legend is born: Nomad, the man without a country? But who will take up the forsaken red-white-and-blue, and what will it cost him to hold onto it? Boss Morgan, the Viper and the Red Skull are on hand with enough villainy for any hero, old or new! Plus: the origin of the Falcon! Guest-starring Nick Fury and the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! Collects Captain America and the Falcon #177-186.

    Alas, that issue was one of the lamented comics that “perished” in storage at my parent’s house during Hurricane Fran. The scene of Steve Rogers stepping on the cape of the costume was once of those “DANG! They actually made fun of that!” moments.
