Captain America now fights for gay rights.
The United States of Captain America, Marvel Comics’ planned celebration of Captain America’s debut 80 years ago in 1941’s Captain America Comics #1, will introduce several new heroes all of whom are influenced by the legacy of Captain America.
In The United States of Captain America, Steve Rogers, John Walker, Sam Wilson, and Bucky Barnes will team up to retrieve the stolen shield of Captain America. The four heroes will embark on a road trip, during which they’ll meet local heroes inspired by the legacy of Captain America to defend their own communities.
The first issue of the five-part series will contain a back-up story introducing Aaron Fischer, created by writer Joshua Trujillo and artist Jan Bazaldua.
Fischer, an openly gay hero, is described as “the Captain America of the Railways,” protecting some of the most marginalized people in society.
