Marvel Comics' Next CAPTAIN AMERICA Will Be A Young Gay Man Called Aaron Fischer

In The United States of Captain America, Marvel will have Steve Rogers meet a new Captain America. Aaron Fischer will wield the shield, and he's a gay man inspired by heroes of the queer community!

Marvel Comics is celebrating the 80th anniversary of Captain America with a limited series titled The United States of Captain America. Written by Christopher Cantwell with art by Dale Eaglesham, the series will see Steve Rogers teaming up with Captain Americas of the past - Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson, and John Walker - on a road trip across America to find his stolen shield.

Throughout the group’s journey, it's said that they’ll discover everyday people from all walks of life who’ve taken up the mantle of Captain America to defend their communities, beginning with Aaron Fischer.

"Aaron is inspired by heroes of the queer community: activists, leaders, and everyday folks pushing for a better life," backup writer Joshua Trujillo explains. "He stands for the oppressed, and the forgotten. I hope his debut story resonates with readers, and helps inspire the next generation of heroes."

Artist Jan Bazaldua will join him to expand on Fischer's origins.

"I want to thank Editor Alanna Smith and Joshua Trujillo very much for asking me to create Aaron," Bazaldua said. "I really enjoyed designing him, and as a transgender person, I am happy to be able to present an openly gay person who admires Captain America and fights against evil to help those who are almost invisible to society. While I was drawing him, I thought, well, Cap fights against super-powerful beings and saves the world almost always, but Aaron helps those who walk alone in the street with problems that they face every day. I hope people like the end result!"

Marvel Comics has also released a new variant cover by Nick Robles and the original design sheet for Aaron Fischer by Jan Bazaldua. The United States of Captain America arrives on June 2nd.
