All-New Captain America 1

This is it! The all-new, Spy-Fi, highflying adventures of
Sam Wilson Captain America and Nomad begin here! • Hydra is growing, the
terrorist band have has infiltrated the Marvel Universe completely! But what is
their ultimate goal? • United by Hydra, Cap’s rogue’s gallery gathers to take
down the new untested Captain America and Nomad!
Brand new Cap, brand new ball game.  Sam Wilson, The Falcon has now officially
taken over the role of the American symbol. 
When Steve Rogers lost the effects of the super soldier serum, his age
literally caught up with him which meant he could no longer carry on as Captain
America.  It was then agreed that Captain
America was more than just a person in a costume, but something to believe
in.  Speculation then ensued as to who
would take over the mantle, but Steve already had a name in mind.  The Falcon no more, Sam Wilson stands proud
as the new Captain America, however, he’s quickly finding out that it’s not as
easy as Steve made it look.
To my knowledge, Sam has always been second tier to Captain
America, always coming in with the assists, but never really taking center
stage.  Now, it’s his chance to shine,
but there’s definitely going to be a bit of a learning curve.  I like this series because it’s kind of like
the introduction of a brand new character yet at the same time, it really
isn’t.  If you’ve been with Marvel long
enough, you’d know The Falcon and Captain America, or at least know of
them.  So now, it’s both characters
rolled into one.  You’ve got Sam’s modern
day mentality, and wings, mixed in with the clout, and shield, that comes with
the name of Captain America.  We get to
see Sam taking on Hydra agents right off the bat, so we’re already in familiar
Cap territory here.  So Sam’s flying
around, dodging bullets and punching out guys and then he busts out the shield
and he has no idea how Steve was able to get the thing to ricochet like it
should.  This is unfamiliar terrain for
Sam and now we get to see him make mistakes and figure things out in order to
be the best Captain America he can be.  I
know I’m looking forward to it.

Rick Remender and Stuart Immonen have given us a whole new outlook on a timeless character. Sure, Steve Rogers is still there to play mentor, but it’s great to see fresh blood in the costume, albeit someone who’s been fighting right along with Steve for quite some time. If you’ve ever been curious about Captain America, now’s the time to jump on the band wagon, with the All-New Captain America #1. Pick up your copy today.
