An All-New Hero Takes Up the Shield in the United States of Captain America #1
Marvel will celebrate the 80th anniversary of Captain America with a brand-new limited series this June titled The United States of Captain America. Written by Christopher Cantwell with art by Dale Eaglesham, this groundbreaking series will see Steve Rogers teaming up with Captain Americas of the past—Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson, and John Walker—on a road trip across America to find his stolen shield. Throughout the group’s journey, they’ll discover everyday people from all walks of life who’ve taken up the mantle of Captain America to defend their communities, beginning with Marvel’s newest hero, Aaron Fischer!
In each issue, Cantwell and Eaglesham will be joined by a diverse lineup of all-star talent to introduce these new shield-bearers and expand on their origins and motivations in thrilling backup tales. This thought-provoking exploration of Captain America’s impact will kick off with writer Joshua Trujillo and artist Jan Bazaldua and the debut of Aaron Fischer, the Captain America of the Railways. A fearless teen who stepped up to protect fellow runaways and the unhoused, Marvel Comics is proud to honor Pride Month with the rise of this new LGBTQ+ hero.
Stay tuned for information about the other new “Captains” that fans will meet throughout this extraordinary adventure.
