Marvel to Introduce Gay Captain America Later This Year

Talk about increasing diversity.

A new Captain America is in town.

This year, Marvel is celebrating the 80th anniversary of the first Avenger with a new limited series. Writer Christopher Catwell and artist Dale Eaglesham are teaming for The United States of Captain America, a new limited series where Captain America’s shield has been stolen. Steve Rogers teams up with Sam Wilson, Bucky Barnes, and John Walker (who have each been Captain America at some point) to go on a cross-country road trip to find it. As they make their way around the country, they meet several heroes who were inspired to become local Captains America for their own communities.
