Marvel Reveals New Captain America On ‘The Colbert Report’
  |  @   |  

After revealing a new Thor on ABC’s The View on Tuesday, Marvel Comics had another big reveal to make on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report. Marvel Comics Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada joined the show to announce who would be the next Captain America, after Steve Rogers lost his powers in Captain America #21. Sam Wilson a.k.a. The Falcon, Cap’s longtime partner and friend will be taking over the role of Captain America.

Quesada revealed the first image of the new Captain America, which blends the classic costume with The Falcon’s familiar wings. Quesada also presented host Stephen Colbert with a picture of the talk show host as a new replacement Falcon, since Sam Wilson will be otherwise occupied.

Check out the first picture of Sam Wilson as Captain America below and let us know if this has you excited or not.

According to Marvel.com, Sam Wilson’s adventures as Captain America will start in All-New Captain America #1. The series will be written by current Cap writer Rick Remender, with art by Stuart Immonen, and will launch this fall. Sam will not be alone in his fight though. He’ll be joined by Steve Rogers as well as Steve’s adopted son, Ian, working in the guise of Nomad.

The Falcon of course played a big part in this year’s film Captain America: The Winter Soldier (played by Anthony Mackie), and he has long been a part of Cap’s adventures, going back to his creation in 1969. He is also the first African-American super-hero, and spent most of the ’70s as the co-star of Cap’s book, which was titled Captain America and The Falcon, during that time period.

This won’t be the first time in recent years that someone has filled in for Steve Rogers. Bucky Barnes was the replacement Captain America after Steve Rogers was killed at the end of Marvel’s Civil War event. Of course, Steve got better from that pesky death business, and you can expect this to be a temporary change as well.

Sam Wilson will not be the first African-American Captain America. That honor would go to the character Isaiah Bradley in the 2003 series Truth: Red, White, and Black by Robert Morales and Kyle Baker.

  3. Hope there are enough metro-sexuals out there to watch all the gender swapping, because I suspect a lot of fans to say good bye to the Thor storyline. I don’t care if there are kick-ass women characters, but why change Thor to a woman? Ok, then right after Wonderwoman debuts, announce that she’s quitting and a new Wonderman takes her place. Deflate the boobs and lower the spikes.
