The moment many have been waiting for will soon be here. Steve Rogers will return to being Captain America. The current CAPTAIN AMERICA: SAM WILSON has been a great series. Nick Spencer has been showing us what Sam is capable of. Having Steve return makes perfect sense since this is his 75th anniversary. If Steve is returning, what does that mean for Sam? Read the press release below from Marvel.

This spring, Marvel’s Steve Rogers takes back the iconic moniker that gave him notoriety and returns to the mantel of Captain America with CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERSfrom writer Nick Spencer and artist Jesus Saiz.

First revealed on ABC’s "Captain America: 75 Heroic Years," Steve Rogers will once again don the red, white, and blue and continue the adventures of Marvel’s Sentinel of Liberty in this all-new series, with an all-new mission statement while proudly carrying an all-new shield. And today, Marvel is pleased to present your first peek inside the bold new series that will take Captain America in a whole new direction!

“It's an exciting time to be writing Captain America, for sure-- this year is the character's 75th Anniversary, not to mention the upcoming release of Marvel’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR. And with CIVIL WAR II approaching in the Marvel Universe, it felt like the perfect time to restore Steve Rogers to his former self,” says series writer Nick Spencer.

Recently drained of the Super Soldier Serum that gave him his strength, speed and endurance, Steve Rogers was no longer fit to wield the shield and he passed the title of Captain America to his closest ally, Sam Wilson, a.k.a. Falcon. So what happens to Sam Wilson now that Steve has returned? Enemies of freedom beware – there are now two Captain Americas protecting the people!

CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERSand CAPTAIN AMERICA: SAM WILSONwill act as great counter-points to one another,” continues Spencer. “If you're digging the topical, ripped-from-the-headlines approach we're taking in Sam's book, we've got plenty more of that to come. And if you're up for a more timeless take, with Captain America facing off against Hydra and his classic rogues gallery, Steve's book will be just the thing for you.”

The All-New, All-Different Marvel Universe is in turmoil. The threat of impeding Hydra forces grows by the day worming their way into Marvel’s Super Hero community. Anyone can be a threat, and no one is to be trusted. But what is Hydra’s ultimate goal? There is only one man who can challenge the threat of Hydra – Captain America himself – Steve Rogers!

Will his first day back on the job be his last? Find out when CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERS #1 arrives in comic shops and digital devices this spring!

Like the cover overall and the new outfit. Wasn't feeling the new shield till I saw the sketches below. That actually looks pretty cool.

The sales have been getting progressively worse for Sam Wilson. December was under 30K which for Marvel is not very good. Probably want Steve to shake things up.

Ok, first of all the split shield is just a goofy gimmick, and that's saying a LOT for comic books.

Second, how long does Marvel really expect to have both Steve AND Sam running around as Captain America? It's not like Miles and Peter both using the name Spider-Man, since Miles didn't take up the Spider-Man name from 616 Peter. He was the only Spidey in his home universe after Parker died, and he couldn't help it that his universe died and he got stuck in 616 (or whatever the heck it's being called now). Or even having both Old Man Logan and Laura Kinney, since only Laura is using the Wolverine name while 616 Logan is dead.

Sam took up the Captain America name because Steve physically couldn't do it anymore. Now Steve physically CAN yet they're both still calling themselves Cap?

This is dumb.

Once again: two dudes with the same exact name doesn't ever work. One will be FalCap or whatever.

Secondly, isn't there a "new Falcon"? So now what Sam Wilson just gets s***ted out of being Falcon now too? He gonna be on sanitation duty in Avengers tower before it's over with.

Shit outfit, shit shield, Sam Wilson is shit, overall shit

It lacks the basic tenant of what made him captain america. Dressing up like a a damn flag. Granted it has the colors but they've played down the American aspect, and went back to the original shield shape.

Part of me sort of liked the sam outfit, and the sam/cap storyline was good, but jumped the shark with the were cap crap. I miss the falcon character being the falcon. probably my favorite mego as a kid.

I feel like todays redesigns are just too overly complicated for the sake of being so.

It doesn't seem like it, looks like he'll be more of a melee character now that he splits the shield apart with a defensive and offensive part.

Kind of weird.

I'm excited to see Steve Rodgers back, however disappointed to see Nick Spencer on the book. While Spencer does great with Ant-Man, I'm noticing his stuff like Sam Wilson turns into a parody. My personal taste for a Cap book is something more serious than he has shown at Marvel.

Super excited about this. The shield makes sense now that Cap is "going on the offensive". I love the classic shield as much as the next fan but this will allow us to see Cap use a new move set, which is something that hasn't really changed since the character's inception. And according to Spencer, this wasn't something Marvel mandated - he wanted to bring Cap back for his 75th anniversary. Also this book isn't going to replace Sam Cap's book, it's going to continue.

Well Civil War is coming out in a few months so I don't know who didn't see this coming. Another reason why I find mantle switching popular characters a waste of time. Sam should have been pushed as Falcon.

I really, really don't like two heroes sharing the same name. Didn't like it for Flash, didn't like it for Spider-Man and I still don't like it. And before anyone brings up GL, that's different, since most of them go by their first name among heroes and fellow Corps members anyway.

The outfit seems to obviously be inspired by Captain America's Age of Ultron and Civil War appearances. I do not like the shield, but it seems to be too early to judge.

I would really love to see Steve go more the way of Richard Grayson (Nightwing) has recently. Have him do more covert ops and spy stuff. He has always been a great "lead from the front guy", but it would be cool to see him being more "James Bond" like. Just saying...

I'm sorry but I miss the wing tips. I think marvel could have somehow updated his wings. Im honestly glad he's not throwing the shield anymore, especially without a device to make it come back to him ie Age of Ultron

I thought DC was going to give Guardian a redesign like this with the new 52, o well

This is why I hate legacy characters. We all know at the end of the day, sooner or later Cap will come back, as will Thor, Wolverine etc. It just hurts the guy filling the role. I'd much rather have had Wilson become an even cooler Falcon,using the movies as a springboard to get him more visible to readers.

Marvel's been a soup sandwich the last couple of years.

Super excited about this. The shield makes sense now that Cap is "going on the offensive".

You know Steve can take apart tanks and jets and stuff casually with his normal shield, right?

Probably because he gave it to Sam. Giving something to someone and then taking it back is seen as kind of a punk move.

Well Civil War is coming out in a few months so I don't know who didn't see this coming. Another reason why I find mantle switching popular characters a waste of time. Sam should have been pushed as Falcon.

Well, I don't see how that would have really helped Sam. I mean, The Falcon isn't exactly a big character.

It doesn't seem like it, looks like he'll be more of a melee character now that he splits the shield apart with a defensive and offensive part.

Kind of weird.

I don't think it's all that weird. I mean he could cut and bash with the old shield to. It was arguably just more a hassle to do than with two parts.

Honestly, my only complaint here is that the headpiece could use some wings on the side. Outside of that...I look at this as an overall improvement on Caps design.

Yes but I'm going off of Spencer's pitch for the book, which is Steve going on the offensive rather than defending, and the shield design reflects it. I'm not being literal, just noting how the shield's design fits the tone and angle of the book.
