Marvel Comics presents an LGBTQ + Captain America this summer scheduled for Pride Month. The character, named Aaron Fischer, will make his debut in the upcoming miniseries titled United States of Captain America. Written by Christopher Cantwell with art by Dale Eaglesham, the series is scheduled to celebrate the character’s 80th anniversary. And this new character who takes over will lead the way, since he is openly gay.
“Marvel Comics is proud to honor Pride Month with the rise of this new LGBTQ + hero.”
United States of Captain America see Steve Rogers teaming up with Captain Americas from the past. This includes Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson, and John Walker. They embarked on a road trip across America to find Cap’s stolen shield. Throughout the group’s journey, they will discover ordinary people from all walks of life who have taken up the mantle of Captain America. This will start with Aaron Fischer, the new gay Captain America. Writer Joshua Trujillo and artist Jan Bazaldua are behind Fischer’s debut, known as “Captain America of the Railroads.” He is described as “a fearless teenager who stepped forward to protect his fellow runaways and the homeless.” Trujillo said this about the character.
“Aaron is inspired by the heroes of the queer community: activists, leaders, and ordinary people fighting for a better life. He stands up for the downtrodden and forgotten. I hope his debut story resonates with readers and helps inspire the next generation. of heroes “.
Wonderful has posted a couple of images of Aaron Fischer. A variant comic cover for Nick Robles and an original design sheet for Jan Bazaldua’s character. Aaron doesn’t come with any fancy technology. It has a DYI aspect about it. A jumpsuit, a homemade mask and a tank top. The character also has a makeshift shield, in addition to a tattoo of the American flag on his shoulder.
Many characters have held the mantle of Captain America over the years in the comics, and we’re even seeing that happen on the MCU screen. Sam Wilson is set to replace Steve Rogers in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Thats nothing new. But the LGBTQ angle brings a new perspective to an ancient classic character. Jan Bazaldua said this in a statement.
“I want to thank editor Alanna Smith and Joshua Trujillo very much for asking me to create Aaron. I really enjoyed designing it and as a transgender person I am happy to be able to introduce an openly gay person who admires Captain America and fights evil to help. the ones who are almost invisible to society. As I drew it, I thought, well, Cap fights super powerful beings and saves the world most of the time, but Aaron helps those who walk alone down the street with problems that they face every day. I hope people like the end result! “
Marvel also teased that we will meet other new captains during the run of this limited series. Be sure to see the first few shots of Aaron Fischer for yourself. United States of Captain America debuts on June 2. The news of the series was originally shared by Marvel.com.
