Marvel fans rejoice – the iconic comic book house has added a new queer Captain America to its heroic lineup just in time for Pride month.
Marvel Comics will celebrate the patriotic hero’s 80th anniversary with a new series titled The United States of Captain America, which will introduce Marvel’s newest LGBT+ hero, Aaron Fisher.
The series will see Steve Rogers, who is the current Captain America in the Marvel universe, team up with Captain Americas of the past – including Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson and John Walker – on a road trip across the US to find his stolen shield. Along the way, Rogers will meet Aaron Fisher, the Captain America of the Railways.
The press release described Fisher as a “fearless teen who stepped up to protect fellow runaways and the unhoused”.
