Marvel Comics Reveals the new Captain America
You may remember that earlier this year, Captain America was assassinated. Well, you comic book geeks out there will, no doubt, be interested to know that a new Captain America is finally making his way into the comic pages of the Captain America monthly comic in January of next year.
This new Cap was designed by Alex Ross, and everyone involved assures us all that the fact Cap is running around with a gun and knife are, in no way, a statement about America as it is today.
The design is an interesting one, but I don’t think I care for the shiny metal look of the colored parts of the costume.
So far, this “Death of Cap” storyline has been fascinating, and I look forward to seeing just who this new Captain America is…but I remain confident that Steve Rogers will be rearing his head before too long, and we’ll be getting the real Cap back. I honestly wish they would keep him dead, and move on with a new guy – but this all feels very temporary…like most things in comics.
