The All-New Captain America Confirmed - Updated

What hashtag controversy will arise from this?


Source: It's Time for An All-New Captain America

Marvel teased the changing of the guard for Captain America a few weeks ago and today they took to the airwaves (via Stephen Colbert and Joe Quesada) and the web to bring the news that everyone already suspected, confirmation of the identity of the new Captain America.

And it is just who most people suspected it would be. Yes, the new Captain America will be Sam Wilson, aka. The Falcon. The reveal will take place in Captain America #25 and this Fall, this new Captain America will fly onto shelves in -- wait for it -- All New Captain America #1! Yes another #1 for good 'ol Cap and it will be written by Rick Remender with art by Stuart Immonen. Remender said that writing Sam as Cap is a "completely different experience" and "Steve can be very rigid. That can be kind of joyless at times, whereas Sam is absolutely not that.” (you may need to ask Jet Black about that)

"He’s also not a military man, so he’s more apt to be instinctively skeptical of any situation that calls for just following orders." Remember continues, "Sam, like Steve, will be led by his personal morality and beliefs as to what is right and what is wrong—and where his beliefs may differ in their shading from those of the previous Cap". The new Captain America suit will incorporate parts of the Falcon suit and the previous Captain America.

And Sam will not be fighting alone. Ian, Steve Rogers' adopted ward from Dimension Z will be joining him as the new Nomad. Steve Rogers drained of the Super Soldier serum, will also act as an assiting tactician at home base.

Note: Rogers has been in a similar situation before.

Hopefully they will find space for a brand new Falcon as well!
