When Walker realizes that Hoskin is dead, he immediately goes after Karli; Unable to catch her, he takes it out on a member of Flag-Smasher. Now stronger after taking a vial of the remaining Super Soldier Serum that Dr. Nagel made, Walker unleashes his fury, savagely beating the defenseless man to death before viscerally beheading him.

This dates back to the Hulk rampage in Johannesburg in Avengers: Age of Ultron, another case that exposes a hero in his most vulnerable state.

Interestingly, all three examples took place outside of the United States, where the idea of ​​the Avengers is more welcome. In the aftermath of the Battle of New York, most people saw Earth’s mightiest heroes doing more good than harm, save for a few naysayers. Similarly, on the heels of Avengers Endgame, Spider-Man: Far From Home hinted that they are celebrated and honored for what they did to fight Thanos. But Sokovian civilians have a different view of the Avengers and the civilians who witnessed Walker’s rampage in Latvia were shocked and scared by his actions. With him dressed as Captain America, that association will damage his perception of America, not just Walker himself. Indirectly, it also contaminates Steve Rogers’ legacy considering that he was once the Avenger of the Stars; As incorrect as it may be, there is a global perception that he and Walker embody the same things.

Just as the Hulk incident in Johannesburg and the Wanda accident in Lagos contributed to the introduction of the Sokovia Accords, it is safe to say that Walker’s actions will have some consequences. If anything, this might even cost you the shield, leading you down a dark path in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Unfortunately, it will be much more difficult to stop him since he has been injected with the Super Soldier Serum.
