The conclusion of the trade paperback CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON: SECRET EMPIRE featured Steve Rogers convincing himself that the disillusioned America of the mid-1970s had no need for a hero that embodied the spirit of the 1940s; therefore, Captain America should be no more. In this follow-up volume, CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON: NOMAD, he makes good on his promise, retiring his red, white, and blue togs. Steve turns away from his former partner, the Falcon, and begins to settle into a normal life, focusing his time on work and his girlfriend, Sharon Carter of SHIELD. Inevitably, he comes to realize that his desire to fight for justice is still there. Donning a new black and yellow costume, he returns as Nomad, the man without a country, but the idea of Captain America can't die. A few random individuals decide that if the real Cap is gone, they'll fill the role. Unfortunately, the results are disastrous, and as Steve begins to realize more about himself and the role...
In 1974, Steve Englehart tackled the disillusionment of Watergate and Vietnam head on in this classic comic book story. Steve Rogers witnesses corruption in the White House that disilllusions him to the point that he no longer wants to be assiciated with a national interest, and he reinvents himself as the Nomad, and independent entity. Rogers discovers that he can believe in the ideal that America is supposed to stand for, and still disagree with the current government administration. It is a theme that once again has particular relevance.
