    GENERATIONS: THE AMERICAS #1 is an issue which takes time and care into developing its characters. Nick Spencer, Paul Renaud, and Laura Martin have truely made an incredible story uniting Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers. Overall, this was a terrific standout in the GENERATIONS anthology series that should make you excited for MARVEL LEGACY. Read Full Review

    Generations: Sam Wilson Captain America & Steve Rogers Captain America #1 brings Generations to a close on a high note that the earlier issues did not necessarily suggest. As event miniseries go, this is one of those single issues that are worth remembering even when the overall event miniseries is only remembered for its central plot or concept. Read Full Review

    Generations: Captain America is essential reading for anyone who's been following Nick Spencer's Captain America saga, regardless if you've been reading the other one-shots. This issue reads like the proper finale to that long run, offering the closure to Sam Wilson's tenure as Cap that Secret Empire didn't. It doesn't take full advantage of the time travel premise, but it works as well as could be hoped given the limited space available. Read Full Review

    It's looking like it's time to say goodbye to what's been an enjoyable ride following Sam Wilson's experiences as Captain America. It's hit me harder than most stories ever have and become one of my favorite story arcs in all mediums. I only hope everyone else has enjoyed Sam-Cap half as much as I have. Let's hope the same kind of growth can be explored inFalcon next month. Read Full Review

    Generations: Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers #1 won't be for everybody. Hell, it may not be for anybody, but at least now Sam and Steve can dust off their old costumes and see what the future holds for them beyond the Vanishing Points, Secret Empires, and Hydra-Steves of the world.

    I would never have expected to describe an issue of Generations as resembling a Twilight Zone episode, but that is what I thought of this issue. Sam Wilson is sent back in time to before WWII when Steve is becoming Captain America. He enlist and fights in the war as the Falcon basically and encourages Steve to become the man he knows he can be. He then lives out a full life even seeing himself become Captain America from an outside perspective. He enters in all the major events of the century and the next as a civilian trying to make a difference. It is a strong message about Sam becoming his own man. Not having to worry about doing what Steve would do, just doing what is right. It is about being happy with who he is as a hero. Sam then returns like the other characters involved in legacy realizing that while he remembers the life, it never happened. There is no record. While I was sad to see that Sam would no longer be Captain America it does feel justified. They did an excellent job of explaining why he does not need to be Captain America going forward. I enjoyed the art and it was very fitting for the story. While this is more dramatic and less exciting than the other Generations titles I did enjoy it. It also told more about where the story was going (Generations as well) than any of the other one shots. If you are not bothered by a lot of exposition this is one to check out.

    I may be giving it too high of a grade, but the more I think about it, I just love this book even more. This is exactly what the generations books are about. Some of them got close to the feeling of this one, but this one is just that Damn good. It just felt a lot more insightful and emotional than the rest. I thought the art was good. It could have been a little more refined, but I am not going to complain. This issue hit all the marks for me and will actually go down as one of my favorite comics.

    This what I hoped/expected when I read the pitch for Generations. Good character development, meaningful story. It provided closure while creating anticipation for where Sam and Steve go next as people. My only complaint is a common one . . . why make the comic more expensive. Just impressed by how well done and fleshed out it was for a one shot.

    The best generations book and a great story for Sam well illustrated by Renaud. Spencer ends his run on a good note!

    I choose the variant cover for this one. The art is very very good. I like it in the preview and this's why I take this issue I didn't solicited. The story is more different than the other generation. Sam will stay more around. So yes the timeline is a little wrong (Like have Selfie & iPhone when steve was found). And I find it weird he age not more in all those year. But with the part where Cap tell Sam he was the one who inspired him, I have the chill & some tear too. So the end was a total disaster when Sam search for the one who would have lived this live. That make all they experience more like the dream, and I find this fact a pity.

    I think the idea for this issue is kind of silly and I really doubt that it is going to be a good development for Sam. It's a pretty bad retcon. I don't like it, but it is well-written and it makes sense if you consider Secret Empire. I just don't know how this is going to work on Falcon new series.

    For all intents and purposes, an issue-long dream sequence leading to a foregone conclusion.
