In a story first published in 2006 written by Ed Brubaker with art by Steve Epting, Captain America faces down his personal demons, in a hand-to-hand battle with the Winter Soldier. But he’s not just fighting for victory, he’s in a struggle for the heart and soul of everything he’s ever cared about, and the results will send tragic echoes throughout his life for years to come!
