Check out the awesome cover of the first Black Captain America!

We talked before about how Sam Wilson (a.k.a The Falcon), would be taking on the mantle of Captain America and now we get a good look at Alex Ross' take on the new Captain America. ComicBook.com got an exclusive first look at Marvel's November 2014 Avengers NOW! solicitations. The All-New Captain America #1 comic by Rick Remender and Stuart Immonen has a variant cover painted by the incredible Alex Ross. I gotta say we're digging the new costume!

Here's the official announcement about the issue:

Marvel is excited to announce that beginning in November 2014, the title of Captain America will be passed to Sam Wilson, The Falcon, in the pages of All-New Captain America #1 by series writer Rick Remender (Captain America, Uncanny Avengers) and series artist Stuart Immonen (All-New X-Men).

Announced on “The Colbert Report” by Joe Quesada, “Sam Wilson…The Falcon, is the new Captain America.”

Addressing how Sam Wilson will follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, Steve Rogers, Remender says, “Sam wants to lead by example. To help people see their own selfishness and to turn it around. To build better communities, to never forget the little guy.”  Remender continues, “Sam follows his heart and his belief in what the American dream means and how it belongs to everyone.”

The question remains: what happens with the original Captain America, Steve Rogers? Executive Editor Tom Brevoort says, “Steve’s spirit is as willing as ever, but his body is no longer up to the task of being Captain America. So he’ll employ his skills as the new Cap’s remote strategic advisor, running Cap’s missions from his headquarters in Avengers Mansion and providing Sam with technical support and field information from a distance. He’ll also tutor Sam in how to throw the shield, a skill that’s deceptively difficult for the new Cap to master. So Steve will continue to be a vital part of the series moving ahead.”

I think it looks great and no one better to pass the torch to.

Love Alex Ross's work. Basically Steve Rogers will be like old Bruce Wayne in Batman Beyond. At least until they find a way to make him young again and he takes back the shield.


Looking Good!

I knew I remembered seeing Immonen on a new high profile project, and here it is. Makes it more of a must-read for me.

Alex Ross could draw a turd and it would look amazing. The man can do no wrong in my book :)

I'm sure it'll involve super-soldier and gamma radiation some how. Old Wayne is the template for aged heroes now.

Agreed Mark. Anyone who can make the Wonder Twins look cool can do anything.
