Hell, I don't even see Isaiah Bradley nor is he mentioned.

    I'm not sure how long Sam is going to be Cap but it would be nice if they did a story with all these characters together. Also, I do know that Falcon and Battlestar teamed up years ago, but it would be nice to see something contemporary.

    I don't have a social agenda but I think it's just odd that you have other characters of color who wear the red, white and blue and they never shared a panel or had a story together. #justsaying

    spoilers:
    Somebody needs to bring up the fact that Battlestar does not have his own shield.

    This was one of Dwayne McDuffie's points of contention when he had a conversation with Mark Gruenwald about Hoskins (and the choice at the time to make him, ahem, "Bucky").

    https://www.cbr.com/captain-america-...duffie-racism/

    I'm hoping that Sam brings it up, or somebody. Lemar is going to be shot at plenty, maybe even more than Walker, depending on who's doing the shooting. (I would just die if some version of that line were actually used in the story)
    My speculation is that MCU Isaiah Bradley’s code name was “Battle Star”. Bucky seemed unusually triggered when Hoskins mentioned that.

    With Power Broker involved, hmm.. I wonder if Walker and Hoskins are going to get shot up with the serum. Maybe they finally intercept a shipment of those meds that the Flag Smasher were stealing. Uh oh. Side effects...?

    More needed from Mr. Bradley. And I presume that the young man at the door is the future "Patriot". I'm just disappointed that Josiah is not seen. Maybe he's still alive. Also, Bradley's wife, who became muslim.
    end of spoilers

    Right on the money!
    No one seems to want to use him to any effect.
    The writer (and colorist) Gregory Wright did!

    Ah, the ye old days when characters weren't utterly bound to the franchise they appeared in.

    in the aftermath of the current show, I hope that somebody greenlights a new story involving all of these folks, preferably together.

    My question has always been, why hasn't there a story where Captain America is addressing this.

    The show's head writer is a black man who IS actually interested in the subject unlike 99% of the white men who wrote Captain America throughout his comics history.

    TBF even if they tried writing it, they could have dropped the ball, or the impact wouldn't have been the same if Steve had been the protagonist of the story instead of Sam.

    In fairness, the legal rights did just get cleared up.

    If I'm remembering or recalling right, Steve was made aware at the end of Truth: Red, White, and Black of Isaiah, and personally paid him a visit to express his respect for him and regret for what was done to him by the country they both served. That said, it's a severe disappointment to me that Isaiah hasn't been referenced once, as far as I know, in the current Captain America run, given how its major theme of interrogating America (society, culture, politics, etc.) as it exists today would have intersected just about perfectly with Isaiah's backstory.

    Yes that did happen and a little kid named Eli was seen.

    When Black Panther made a mistake and married Coates's muse-Isaiah was there and pretty much every black hero knew who he was. All the white ones were confused.

    Luke Cage even referred to Isaiah as "the first me," insofar as they were both black men who were empowered, as it were, by heinous experiments stemming from attempts to recreate the Super-Soldier Serum, Isaiah by the US military and Luke by an underground prison operation. Funny enough, both of those were ultimately tied back to Weapon Plus trying to create superhuman weapons that could be wielded against mutants.
