This issue serves several functions: It provides the aftermath to the "Man-Wolf" storyline that began in issue #402, resolving the entire Capwolf fiasco; it wraps up one of Cap's missing-person cases; it is the title's sole "Infinity War" tie-in (thankfully); and it reunites former partners as it sets up the next storyline.
