Last March marked the 80th anniversary of the birth of one of the most representative characters of Marvel comics: The captain America. The legacy of a character born of the patriotic fervor of the Second World War it still lingers in popular culture.
Since that Captain America Comics # 1, Marvel has seen how various people assumed the mantle of Captain America, something that we saw, partially, in Falcon and the Winter Soldier, for those of you who do not follow the comics.
In addition, the House of Ideas is expanding that repertoire of people who embody the stars and stripes with the values inherent to the Captain America.
This 80th anniversary of the character is seeing the debut of new American icons, with a special focus on diversity.
The new series titled The United States of Captain America, has introduced new Captains America, such as Nichelle Wright, Aaron Fischer, the first homosexual Captain America, Joe gomez, a Native American of the Kickapoo tribe, Arielle agbayani, of Filipino-American descent or Jeremy merrick, an Air Force soldier.
Additional art shows each character separately, each with their own “comic” catchphrase that hints at their personality.
