Around six months after the Blip and the restoration of the world, Torres teamed up with 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.
Afterwards, he and Wilson go to a café together in Tunisia, where Torres told Wilson about a new terrorist group called the Flag Smashers, who believed life was better during the Blip. Torres then mentioned to Wilson that people online came up with a conspiracy theory about Captain America living on the moon as the general public didn't know what happened to him.
Torres went 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.
Torres tossed aside the mask and brought out his handgun confronting the terrorist. He tried to arrest him, however, the terrorist was no match for him and knocked him unconscious.

Helping Sam Wilson

After Barnes leaves, Torres informs 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. Walking away with Captain America's shield, Wilson passes on his mantle to Torres leaving him with the EXO-7 Falcon suit.
