Meet Joe Gomez, the Captain America of the Kickapoo Tribe

Next month, Marvel celebrates 80 years of Captain America with an extraordinary new series: The United States of Captain America! Written by Christopher Cantwell with art by Dale Eaglesham, this limited series will be an epic adventure worthy of the iconic hero’s milestone anniversary. Not only will the series see the ultimate Captain America team-up—bringing together Steve Rogers, Sam Wilson, Bucky Barnes, and John Walker—but along the way it will introduce new shield-bearers that have been inspired by the star-spangled Avenger. Created by a diverse lineup of all-star talent, these new Marvel heroes come from all walks of life and will have their thrilling origins, heartfelt motivations, and bright futures explored by their creators in special backup tales each issue.

Fans already got their first glimpse at the likes of Aaron Fischer and Nichelle Wright and now can check out the third new “captain” that Steve Rogers will find in this can’t-miss series: Joe Gomez, the Captain America of the Kickapoo Tribe. Created by geoscientist and Lipan Apache writer Darcie Little Badger and Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation artist David Cutler, Joe Gomez will debut this August in The United States of Captain America.

Joe Gomez is a construction worker, a builder in a world plagued by destruction. Every time a spaceship crashes into a bridge or block is destroyed, people like Joe make them whole fixing the mistakes of others. He extends that to helping others, refusing to charge elders for home repair services.

The saga of The United States of Captain America begins when Captain America’s original shield is stolen. And when the mysterious shield thief targets a cultural landmark in Kansas, hoping to put a permanent stain on Captain America’s image, Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson are hot on his trail when they meet the Kickapoo Tribe’s own Captain America. But there’s more to the thief’s agenda than meets the eye and the three Caps may be headed straight into a trap! Look out for Joe Gomez’s action-packed debut this August and stay tuned for the final two new Cap reveals coming your way soon!

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.

Green Lantern: John Stewart – A Celebration of 50 Years

Review: Future State: The Flash #1

Future State: The Flash #1

Future State: The Flash #1 is an interesting comic. As much as it takes place “in the future”, its style and story feel very much in the past. Team Flash has been depowered and are on a mission to stop Wally West who has turned evil running around the world killing.

Written by Brandon Vietti, the comic is an interesting one in concept. Team Flash are forced to take up arms with the weapons of the Rogues in a mission to gain tools to stop Wally. The story would normally be totally ok and a story arc I might expect in the ongoing. But, the focus on Wally being a murderer, not too long after he was in fact a murderer, seems like odd timing. Wally just redeemed himself in a way with his actions in Dark Nights: Death Metal but we’re reminded so soon after of his dark side. Fans of Wally West will likely hate this.

The story itself though is pretty good. The mission of the Flashes is intriguing and the build is good. Vietti does a solid job of depicting Barry Allen. He’s center of the story and his hope is on full display. This is an aspect of the character that has been played up since his return. It’s nice to see that here as it emphasizes that it’s a theme within DC Comics as a whole. Even with a “dark” storyline, there’s still hope at the heart of it.

Dale Eaglesham’s art is pretty solid. There’s a “classic” feel to it and it’s interesting to see a Flash comic without the need for much motion in the art. With the group depowered, we don’t get the running we normally see. There isn’t that sense, or need, for much motion. But, Eaglesham does a solid amount of action with delivers some subtle moments of emotion. He’s joined by Mike Atiyeh on color and Steve Wands handles the lettering.

Future State: The Flash #1 is a solid story arc for an ongoing series. It feels like one of those fill-in stories in between bigger arcs that lasts a few issues. The comic doesn’t blow me away, or excite me, but it’s still a good read that’s entertaining.
