Marvel To No Longer List America As A Legacy Title

But America has been around for 242 years.

Starting with this month's #11, America will no longer be a part of Marvel's Legacy series of titles, something it has been promoted as part of since the line's announcement in the summer. The publisher told retailers that the issue "was incorrectly solicited as a Legacy title. This title is not a Legacy title."

Marvel must have just noticed that the series has been emblazoned with that initiative since October's America #8. Series editor Sarah Brunstad spoke on America's involvement in the Legacy program in July with IGN, so someone at Marvel was aware of it.

"While America doesn't have the publishing history of a character like Captain America, she's an important part of 'Legacy' for us because she represents core Marvel values."

No reason for the change was given. The original solicit info is below.

AMERICA #11
