Marvel has released variant cover art for the finale of United States of Captain America showing all five new Captains America together.
Marvel has released a Leinil Francis Yu variant cover of the finale of its United States of Captain America miniseries that shows all of the new Captain Americas that were introduced in the miniseries together for the first time.
The United States of Captain America marks Marvel’s celebration of Cap’s 80th anniversary (Marvel chooses to celebrate anniversaries based on the cover date of the issue’s release, so Captain America Comics #1 is judged on its March 1941 cover date and not its December 1940 release date) by introducing five new Captain Americas who each support their local community as part of the “Captains Network.”
Each issue of the five-issue series will introduce a new local Captain America and the final shows them all together.
The new Captains are as follows:
Aaron Fischer, defender of the destitute, co-created by writer Josh Trujillo and artist Jan Bazaldua
Nichelle Wright, vanguard of a brighter future, co-created by writer Mohale Mashigo and artist Natacha Bustos
Joe Gomez, champion of the overlooked, co-created by writer Darcie Little Badger and artist David Cutler
Arielle Agbayani, a bully’s worst nightmare, co-created by writer Alyssa Wong and artist Jodi Nishijima
Jeremy Merrick, protector of soldiers, created by the series creative team, writer Christopher Cantwell and artist Dale Eaglesham
Cantwell then worked with each of the creative teams above to work the new Captains into the narrative of the main series (with the backup stories for each issue having a spotlight story on the new Cap by the creative team that created that specific new Cap). He explained to Marvel.com what it was like to work on this project with these other creators, “By getting to work with all of the other creators, the perspective of the book increased tenfold. Moreover, though, these creators didn’t just bring one aspect of their identities or lives to this. Again, we weren’t just checking boxes. These were all writers and artists who brought humor, depth, taut action, and every other kind of primo comic storytelling to their work. In a way, this book was the most similar to a TV writers room that I’ve experienced so far. No one had labels or titles. It was people working together on something good that we believed in. Kind of like the Captains Network that way.”
United States of Captain America #5 is due out in October.
