- An Ultimate Annual story about Captain America and The Falcon as the two share a road trip across America while talking about the time and generation gap that Captain America missed and experienced. The story was written by Charlie Huston, who says in an recent interview with comicbookresources:
"I'm still ironing out details, but the basic idea is a road trip across America with Cap and Sam," Huston stated. "What I'm interested in digging into is the relationship between a white man who has a 1940s mentality and a contemporary black American. You frequently get to see Cap reacting to the brave new world of the 21st century, but what about the 60 years he missed? What does he think about all the stuff that went down while he was frozen? And, you know, he's gonna throw his shield at some bad guys along the way."— Charlie Huston
