Captain America Gets Doubly Mighty On The Wednesday Run

Maybe it’s because of this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, one of the great superhero films made.

Maybe it’s because of the weekly Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. television series, which has been firing on all cylinders in its second season.

Maybe it’s because of last month’s pretty awesome Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer.

All of these things have got Captain America fans, old and new, whipped up into a bit of frenzy. And today Marvel Comics services that frenzy with two – count ‘em two – new Cap titles to read! Follow me after the jump for the goods…

If you’ve been reading the monthly (and so much fun) Uncanny Avengers comics, or, if you’ve been reading the recent Avengers/X-Men: Axis mini series, you know what’s happened to Captain America.

Quick spoiler: the Captain America you know and love, in the aftermath of battle with the villain called the Iron Nail, Cap’s super soldier serum was neutralized – and the man rapidly aged to his natural age. Steve Rogers is now pushing one hundred years old! With a weak, aged body, Cap can no longer go on the intense missions he once participated in, but his mind is still sharp! So sharp that he’s picked Sam Wilson, the Falcon, as his Captain America replacement!

And that’s where these new sets of comics start!

Marvel Comics is smart. In anticipation of next year’s Avengers film and, more importantly, the buzz surrounding the character of Falcon and the third Captain America film two years from now, has released two new new Cap-centric monthly titles today:

We’re got the All-New Captain America #1, where Sam Wilson, the untested Captain America, battles the growing presence of HYDRA within the Marvel Universe.

In Captain America and the Mighty Avengers #1, Sam Wilson tries to keep super-powered, fan-favourite heroes, working as a team in order to help those who need it – however they might need it.

Whether you’re an old or new fan, whether your old or young (at heart), make the run to your local comic book shop today and go mighty!

Get caught up in all the Cap frenzy!
