If there was one good thing to come out of the Disney+ series Falcon and the Winter Soldier, it was US Agent. I hope John Walker eventually gets to clash with Steve Rogers in some way. Until then, we can be contented with this statue of the anti-hero from Iron Studios.
US Agent stands at 8.6″ tall, is made of polystone, and is exceptionally detailed. The statue is set for a fourth-quarter 2022 release and is priced at $149.99. Pre-orders are available right now.
Former captain of the US Army\’s 75th Ranger Regiment, John Walker was chosen to succeed Steve Rogers as second Captain America, and on one of his missions, he managed to apply himself a replica of the Super Soldier Serum. Upon seeing his partner and best friend Sgt Lemar Hoskins, known as Battlestar get killed in action, Walker brutally murdered one of the terrorist members of the Flag Smashers, an anti-nationalist group made up of super soldiers. This act caused Walker to be stripped of his cloak and dishonorably discharged from his military rank. After abandoning his revenge to team up with new Captain America Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes against the extremist group, he was recruited by the mysterious Valentina Allegra de Fontaine from whom he received a new costume and was renamed U.S. Agent.
I found it odd that people in the media praised the extremist group from this series as heroic. Why? If anything, this series showed me that US Agent deserves his own series. Of course, maybe it’s just me being an aging patriot from a military family.
What are your thoughts on the MCU’s version of US Agent? What did you think of the character when he was first introduced into the comics in the ’80s? Let us know in the comments section below.
