Marvel wants to adapt to the times, therefore, in an increasingly globalized and more inclusive world, his comics increasingly include more characters than ever before and that they go beyond the muscular blond American guy on duty and closer to the real population.

An idea from Alyssa Wong, who wanted to reflect her own story in this new Marvel superhero.

“When editor Alanna Smith asked me to create a new Captain America for this series, I immediately knew that I wanted it to be a girl of Filipino origin.

In order to beat him, she has to be creative, “Wong explained about the origins of this new Captain America, whose comic series will premiere on September 22 of this year.
