Nichelle Wright Suits Up as Captain America to Protect Her Community
The United States of Captain America is exploring Captain America’s legacy around the country and new individuals taking up the mantle to stop injustice in a five-issue miniseries.
Marvel has revealed Nichelle Wright, another young hero inspired by Steve Rogers to protect her community.
Writer Mohale Mashigo:
The thing I can say about Nichelle is that she is working day and night to bring change into a world where she feels defeated. Nichelle is a light in a dark time and she wants to take ownership of her community and space in America.
Artist Natacha Bustos:
There are very few occasions when you have the opportunity to contribute to the creation of a character as genuine and powerful as Nichelle. She is undoubtedly one of the characters that I am most proud to have designed, for all that she represents and what she means for the community.
