Those erased by ‘the snap’ and returned, and five years later Sam Wilson, aka Falcon, is working with the U.S. Air Force.

What’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s Plot?

Wilson was given the mantle of Captain America by Steve Rogers, but he struggles with this idea and instead decides to give Rogers’ shield to the U.S. government so it can be displayed in a museum. Wilson wants to help his sister Sarah with the family business, but they are unable to get a bank loan. He then learns that the government has named a new Captain America.

Meanwhile, Bucky Barnes attends government-mandated therapy, where he discusses his attempts to make amends for his time as a brainwashed assassin, aka Winter Soldier.
