The new character, Aaron Fischer, is the first LGBTQ character to pick up on Cap’s Schild in the 80-year history of the comic book

Fischer is described as “Captain America of the Railways” – a fearless teen who worked to protect other runaways and unhoused Marvel Comics is proud to honor Pride Month with the rise of this new LGBTQ hero “

The limited series is titled The United States of Captain America and follows “Steve Rogers, who teamed 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 during throughout the group’s journey, you will discover everyday people from all walks of life who have taken on the mantle of Captain America to defend their communities. “The series was written by Christopher Cantwell with art by Dale Eaglesham

Here are a few more glimpses of the character:

“Aaron is inspired by heroes of the queer community: activists, leaders and everyday people who work for a better life,” said writer Joshua Trujillo, who writes the debut issue of Fischer. “He represents the downtrodden and the forgotten I hope that his debut story resonates with readers and inspires the next generation of heroes ”

“I would like to thank Editor Alanna Smith and Joshua Trujillo for asking me to create Aaron,” added Jan Bazaldua, who draws the subject. “I really enjoyed designing it and as a transgender person I am delighted I was able to present myself to an openly gay person who admires Captain America and fights against evil to help those who are almost invisible to society. While I was drawing him, I thought, well, Cap fights against overpowering beings and saves the world almost always but Aaron helps those who walk the streets alone with problems they face every day I hope people like the bottom line! “

The other new captains will be introduced at a later date June in stores
