Torres does ground control during the rescue

In 2024, Torres teamed up with his new friend, Sam Wilson, to rescue Vassant, who was kidnapped by the terrorist organization known as the LAF before they were able to get him over the Tunisian border where the U.S. could not be seen operating. While driving a Humvee, he helped assist Wilson from the ground and watched as the mission was successful. He then leapt in the air in gleeful excitement.[2]

Torres speaking to Sam Wilson

Afterwards, he and Wilson went to a café together in Tunisia: Torres tried to help Wilson fix Redwing, but Wilson told him he had it. Two locals then walked up and thanked Wilson for his role in bringing about the Blip. Torres then told Wilson about a new terrorist group called the Flag Smashers, who believed life was better during the Blip, and showed him their symbol on his phone. Torres then told Wilson that conspiracy theories had popped up online about Steve Rogers living on the moon as the general public didn't know what happened to him. Wilson told him not to believe everything online. When Wilson got up to leave, Torres asked why he was going to Washington, D.C., only for Wilson to smile at him and say moon stuff.[2]

Deciding to go investigate himself, Torres travelled to Switzerland in order to track down the Flag Smashers and found a group of people sliding on masks. Confused, Torres put one on, but soon realized that he had wandered into the middle of a bank robbery led by the same terrorist organization he was searching for. A local policeman attempted to arrest the masked Torres, but he easily got away from him. He then filmed a Flag Smasher knocking away another policeman with superhuman force.

Later, Torres met with Wilson and Bucky Barnes at the former Latvian GRC Resettlement Camp in Riga. Torres greeted Barnes and mentioned to him that he noticed he had gotten his sleeve back after ripping it off on the aircraft in Munich. After Barnes left them, Torres informed Wilson that Karli Morgenthau has been hiding since the brutal murder of a member of one of her teammates at the hands of John Walker. Torres also took an interest in looking at Wilson's wings. Walking away with Captain America's shield, Wilson passed on his Falcon mantle over to Torres leaving him with the EXO-7 Falcon suit.
