Marvel Legacy is almost upon us and Marvel Comics is quickly releasing details of the event, with the announcement of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee on Captain America. This fits in with the theme of legacy, as Waid first wrote Captain America in 1995 so it's certain to be a fresh take on the character.

Waid gave an interview to IGN where he was asked how this run embraces the idea of Marvel Legacy and gave a prepared answer.

It's very much a hearkening back to a more bombastic, classic era of Marvel, with a more modern feel.

He was also asked about following up Nick Spencer's Secret Empire.

Our issues are set several months after the conclusion of Secret Empire. As great a story as that was, and we will refer to it, our mission is to look forward and create new adventures.

To be fair, if I had to follow Secret Empire, I'd have my eyes permanently forward and never look back.

See the solicit info below.




HOME OF THE BRAVE begins – and Steve Rogers is back in action in the red-white-and-blue! Steve begins a journey across America to restore his tarnished reputation – and the dangers he encounters along the way are unlike any he's faced before!
