Government-sponsored ‘Captain America’ John Walker had the most iconic and quite disturbing scene in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. But, his comic version is originally even more brutal.
Played by Wyatt Russell, John Walker became the new face of Captain America. Many have donned the costume over the years, but this version definitely left an impact that will last for a long time.
After Steve Rogers gave up the shield, Walker took up the mantle and carried the responsibilities that came with it. His righteous and arrogant attitude certainly puzzled people and made them wonder if this is the new hero they would want to protect them and serve the country.
In that particular episode in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, viewers witnessed a cruel and savage Captain America, beating one of the Flag Smashers to death until blood spilled all over the shield. People everywhere looked at him in horror, but what he did in the MCU was nothing compared to his atrocities in the comics.
John Walker Comic Version Is Ruthlessly Savage
In Mark Gruenwald and Kieron Dwyer’s issue of Captain America #350, the new Captain America has done several brutalities that tarnished the symbol of the shield. Once, he beat Professor Power until he perished, murdered Red Skull’s watchdogs, and killed two of his friends, Left-Winger and Right-Winger. Walker believed that they were to blame for his parents’ demise. The new Captain America uses violence as an excuse to prove that death is an option for criminals who deserve it.
Walker only became Captain America for a brief time, and it is only right to be so. He has no control over his rage, and he mistakes punishment for justice. MCU did a great job bringing John Walker to life in the most shocking yet faithful way.
