    Captain America

    Character » Captain America appears in 10934 issues.

    During World War II, Steve Rogers volunteered to receive the experimental Super-Soldier Serum.

    If you've been reading the current CAPTAIN AMERICA by Rick Remender, you're aware things aren't going too well for Steve Rogers. With the Super Soldier Serum no longer keeping him young, his future as Captain America is questionable. We've known a new Cap was coming. Marvel has announced the identity of the next Captain America.

    No Caption Provided

    Get ready for Sam Wilson, aka the Falcon, to take on the mantle of Captain America.

    “This is it,” says Remender of the culmination of two years of storytelling in CAPTAIN AMERICA and the dawning of ALL-NEW CAPTAIN AMERICA. “This is the fireworks factory we’re arriving at, and now everything’s going to blow up and be very pretty and exciting to look at. It leads into an evolution of Steve Rogers’ character that I had very early when I was given the job. I think that it’s important with these stories to do things that are natural and make sense and have an inherent logic to the universe, but are also constantly shifting and exciting, keeping the drama high. In order to do that it really comes down to creating new dynamics.

    “I’ve been having a lot of fun writing Sam. It’s a completely different attitude. The fact that he’s not a soldier shifts things up a bit. Sam’s not going to be Steve. Steve can be very rigid. That can be kind of joyless at times, whereas Sam is absolutely not that.”

    Stay tuned for an ALL-NEW CAPTAIN AMERICA #1 by Rick Remender and Stuart Immonen.

    Not big on the costume design, but I'm excited to see how the shield and its ricocheting works together with Falcon's aerial combat. That should make for some fun fights.

    In November, Superior Iron Man #1 sends Tony Stark to San Francisco with a new outfit and a new perspective on life. “The Genius Bar costume is there for a reason,” Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso tells EW. “The newly-transformed Superior Iron Man has very ambitious plans for the city that some of its residents embrace, but not all.” Comic book fans will note the very pointed addition of the word “Superior” to the title. The last time that happened, it was Superior Spider-Man, and Doctor Octopus took over Peter Parker’s brain. Doc Ock won’t be invading Tony’s frontal lobe, but Alonso does note, “Like the Superior Spider-Man, Superior Iron Man is a character that’s hard to root for.” The series is written by Tom Taylor and drawn by In a series written by Tom Taylor and drawn by Yildiray Cinar. come on marvel

    Of course. I dont like it all that much but at least it makes sense unlike female Thor. If there was anyone other than Bucky that was going to take up the Captain America mantle it would be Falcon.

    Other than Bucky, Sam Wilson is definitely the most deserving.

    Gonna be interesting to see his development if he actually keeps the shield.

    Yesterday Marvel announced that Thor would become a woman, today they announced Captain America will become black, all they need to do now to complete their "politically correct Trinity" is to announce tomorrow that Iron Man is homosexual. -__-

    Cool. A lot of these hero changes are weird though. First making wally west black, then thor a girl, now captain America black. How about creating and pushing new characters now sacrificing old, popular, established ones even for a short period of time. Or in west's case, for as long as the new 52 lasts.

    This is still cool though.

    Actually I don't really care about "omg a black guy is playing captain america??" But this had no really any build up...Falcon from Avengers World title and Captain America, he didn't do really much.

    Now all of a sudden the mantle is given to Falcon.But I do dig the design where the winter soldier outfit logo is placed on the chest.Plus they brought his wings to Captain America mantle so we finally get a Captain America who can fly !!

    I'll give it a shot. I hope we see him in many montages as he learns to master the shield. Also his relationship with Jet Black should definitely become more and more interesting.

    Some quick thought.

    • Not feeling the costume.
    • Not feeling both a shield and wings. Does he even need the wings to fly in 616?
    • I get they are trying to push Falcon but I feel it would have been better under his own name. I don't feel this is right for him. For me it's not a step forward but a step under a shadow.
    • Though I do get some valid reasons why he was chosen it doesn't mesh for me.
    • I should put some thought into who I would use as a replacement. Well with the understanding that it's only temporary because Steve needs to come back.

    Hmmmm…I am torn. I want to take a deep breath and yell NOOOOOO! but I don't really hate this decision because I'm all for legacy characters. The issue I have with this is that I feel this is a step in the wrong direction for Falcon. Is he the only person that may deserve to dawn the shield other than Bucky (who isn't Steve)? Yeah. But he's already been established as his own character for years so I don't see why making him Cap will do him any good. But hey, I guess that's because Bucky will be shooting space demons in his own series for the time being, right?

    I'll ride with this...

    Also - "Captain Falcon" literally laughed my @$$ off.

    Cool! Will read. Love the first issue cover, Immonen.

    Without super-soldier serum, Sam Wilson has much to prove. Should be an exciting arc, filled with a great deal of winged ass-kicking. :)

    Also it's cool Steve Rogers is back at base, acting as tactician and shield instructor.

    I hope it's Arno. I think it would be really cool if marvel had the balls to take out and replace their big three. I'm guessing the fire guy is the dude from Inhuman. It makes me so sad they are pushing Lang and not Pym as Ant-Man. v.v

    Avengers A.I was canceled a long time ago. Mark Waid is a big fan of Pym and has him show up in Hulk and Daredevil from time to time since he writes those, but other then that not much is keeping him out of limbo.

    This should be interesting. So it's Falcon being Captain America. So Captain Falcon?

    I want to see Captain Falcon fight Sam Wilson. If Sam Wilson does a Falcon Punch & says Falcon Punch I'm going to lose it.
