I picked up a Captain America book last week to see where the comic was headed. I opened it and the page had a guy in his 40's or 50's talking about how the "Wilson Captain" isn't his Captain America. Now, I may be reading a bit in to this but, could this be perceived as a slight toward readers who don't like the direction the comic is currently moving.


Needless to say, I put the comic back on the shelf and moved along. I won't pick up another Captain America title until I see Rogers on the cover and back in uniform.

After thinking bout this for a while I think the only solution is this: A classic Universe where the characters that started the Marvel Universe have new stories, but stay as the people they are and the comics keep their numbering and never have volumes 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.  Thus, Cap is Steve Rogers.  You can put him through all kinds of challenges and trials, but only Steve could be Cap.  He may even quit being Cap for a while, but NO one else gets to take up the title.  Thor is Thor.  Others who are worthy may be able to use his hammer,  but ony the male Thor is Thor.  New characters could be introduced and encouraged, but not to replace old ones.  If a book has to be cancelled it is gone and not brought back a couple of months later with a new number 1 issue.  Think - Fantastic Four, Thor, Cap, Avengers,Hulk, Iron-Man, X-Men, Dr. Strange as core titles and maybe Strange Tales, Tales of Suspense and Tales to Astonish to star various other heroes.  I am probably forgetting some big heroes and even some of my favorites, but I am just so sick of every issue having to be world shaking and earth threatening and every year titles starting over and our favorite characters being screwed with.  And no heroes have 2, 3, 4 books a month and no dark versions of heroes. Save all that for the NEW Marvel, which is like NEW COKE.

Bring back Steve Rogers as Captain America!!  He is the only Cap. Sam is a good character and I like the Falcon.  He could probably carry his own book, but he is not Cap.  No one is but Steve.  Hope this ends soon.  This comes from some one who has every Tales of Suspense and Captain America for over 40 years.

Dear Marvel,

 First of all, thank you for the 45 years of comics. Secondly, thank you for giving me a defined ending point on which I can stop buying your books ( DC has done the same). There have been some truly wonderful runs in various book over the years as well as some real stinkers, but I cannot honestly remember a more disappointing run on a book than is currently in place on Captain America. 

 I find Remender's run to be the worst overall representation of this character ever. He is either ashamed of something  or just has absolutely no understanding of Captain America. While I agree that Sam Wilson is an underused character, I do not like him as Captain America. Steve Rogers is not a jingoistic tool of the government, he is the one who tells the government to shove it, again your writer does not get this, Steve is about right and wrong, not us and them

 Remender's narrow minded view of the character has caused me to stop buying this title as well as any title he is associated with. Not that you care, I am well outside of your desired demographic, as I will be 54 next month.I will be keeping an eye out for the return of Steve Rogers, as he is THE Captain America.

 As an addendum, I would like to point out that Steve Rogers' abilities as given to him thru the "Super Soldier Formula" are not something that can turned of or taken away. They are the result of genetic manipulation, not a magic potion as several of your writers have treated it over the years. I have understood for about 30 years, I realized it when the Weapon X story appeared in Marvel Comics Presents in 1988.

 Goodbye for now. I wish your current readers well, and i hope that you(Marvel) remembers who put you where you are and that the fans are more important than anything else, because without us, you are nothing.

 By the way, have you noticed that the guys making the Captain America movies have a better handle on the character than you do?

I absolutely agree with your opinion. Bad story lines chased me away from comics before. As I said in another post, Cap brought me back. I stayed with the "Bucky as Cap" run because at least Bucky has a long history run as his sidekick and would be the natural successor. I haven't bought a Cap or associated book since Wilson.

Did Sam Wilson serve in the military? I never paid that much attention to his backstory. If we are expected to follow the Captain America: Winter Soldier backstory then yes. I'm not sure about this comic version. They keep changing things.

@edhaney Third try, lets see if takes this time. Short answer, no he was not in the military. He has had several back stories. Social worker and street level criminal called "Snap" Wilson.

After this blending are we getting Steve Rogers back? Oh, could you, once and for all, put an end to the idea that the Super Soldier formula is something that can be shut off, instead of part of a process of genetic modification.

Captain America is Steve Rogers.  Anything else doesn't measure up.

Can we please have Steve Rogers back as Captain America. Before accuses me of anything, I did not like John walker, I did not like Bucky Barnes and I do not like Sam Wilson as Captain America. The whole concept is just a lack of imagination. I really feel as though Marvels current editors and writers care very little for loyal fans and seek only shock and awe effect in there comics.

When I came back to recovery in July of 2013, I wore my C.A. graphic T (the concentric circles w/wht. star center) every day - I had dozens of the same one. I was riding my racing bicycle to all my meetings, averaging 3, some days 4 or 5 meetings a day. I eventually wound up attending 250 meetings in my first 90 days. I acquired the moniker 'Captain America' in the RANA area of Narcotics Anonymous. Having that moniker became an honor and pushed me to do feats beyond my peers in the program. I started pushing myself, weightlifting, creatine, whey protein and averaging 150 to 200 miles a week on the bike. I became known as a man who, if he gave you his word - he would keep it, he would show up to any and all commitments. I became active in the political body of this 12 step program. I created and still actively support two(2) NA meetings in my hometown area: Saturday Night Live and 1st Step Forward at the local homeless shelter. To this day I am drug free and still work circles around the 20-somethings I work with at the restaurant, where I'm a manager - and I'm 58 years old! I've said all this to make the point that super heroes are not just the stuff of comics - they are the precognitive vision of any person who so chooses to believe and then become the embodiment of that vision! YOU can be a Captain America, if you so choose. Yes, I take a regimen of vitamins and push myself physically - its hard work some days and I do it alone and without recognition or thanks some days, but it is all in the realm of possibility if you so desire... You just have to believe and then find the will within yourself to do so. The recovery community's greatest gift to me was first intended as a sneering joke, a cast off slur, because I wore comic book graphic T's, but they had no idea what the moniker would make me - I was proud to be called Captain America and have lived up to the name. Thank you Marvel Comics for helping me catch a vision for my life through this great character!

Okay, I don't like Remender's run, no secret. That I find his handling of the character and his stated dislike ("joyless") of Steve a complete misunderstanding, obvious. The removal of the Super Soldier Serum from Steve, impossible, its not a magic spell or potion, its genetic manipulation used to create a specific result, a man-made mutant, if you prefer.                                                      

I have recently came to the realization that this whole thing, since the 1st issue of his run, is nothing more than a mental projection designed to torture and incapacitate him. This torture is not being carried out by Zola, it is being carried out by the Red Skull, using abilities he gained from Charles Xavier's brain. 

 So, whoever takes this tile over,hopefully soon, can easily erase the last 2 years of the horror show and get back to someone, who actually understands the character and does not view him as a jingoistic tool of the government.

Mithras could certainly be a middle eastern super-hero fighting oppression and bringing order to the world. Whether he defends the order of imperialism imposed upon the planet by Rome or in today's world the USA would be up to Marvel. Whether Marvel's readers are ready to confront the imperialist nature of the USA's relationship with the rest of the planet and its use of its military might like Romans did two thousand years ago or not. Whereas Captain America was a super-hero for the height of American imperialism post-1945, Mithras could represent the new world, post-cold war in which globalization has become much more complex since 1991 and the collapse of the Soviet Union.

WolfieSmith
WolfieSmith

This is how the USA with the EU are forming the new world order post-1991. A world that serves the needs of globalized capital at a cost to the peoples and natural environment. Capital needs to grow at a rate of 3.0% per year for ever, the planet cannot support exponential growth for ever. Captain America represented the US world order, which includes the developed capitalist states of Europe. This world view has been in crises since the late 1970's, that's why the capitalist elite needed to move from a Keynesian model of capitalism to the post-welfare model of a neo-liberal economy and neo-conservative state, supra-state and global governance. Mithras could become the super-hero taking on corporate capitalism and the elite of big business and defender of the people and nature.

@JackDeBerry I prefer the Steve Rogers version over any other. Bucky Barnes is a distant 2nd but far ahead of any other character that portrayed or allegedly (story line) portrayed Captain America.

This might sound racist, But i dont understand why theyre making him Black, Dont get me wrong im black too, But Seriously

RickSlot

@MegaAwesomeSuperGuy I don't think they are making him black, just his successor. He isn't less of a human because of that. In fact, he is not less anything because of that. Your tone suggest there may be something wrong with a black dude taking over white dude's business. Are you saying that blacks can't be CEO's? Leaders? Influencers?


See how fast this whole thing can escalate... I wish it wasn't so and I couldn't come up with an offended example so quickly. I really do think the color is not enough to differentiate between people and miss my black friends sometimes more than whites. They know value in together, whites know value in an iphone. Maybe Captain America should be black to bring Americans together and really feel the Blues of history. http://www.slotozilla.com/free-slots/captain-america a video for upcoming free slots game about him.

@RickSlot @MegaAwesomeSuperGuy Got some guilt, there? You seem to reading a lot into a comment questioning a decision, that is (I assume) based on money, as well as the writer's stated, inability to connect with the character, calling writing him "joyless". If he doesn't like the character, why is he writing this book?

edhaney

@MegaAwesomeSuperGuy 

They aren't making him black. They are making him Barack Hussein Obama. Look at the last few comments in the recent comic. I never knew that Falcon was a Community Organizer. This is a sad attempt of left leaning artists to latch on to what's left of the sliding popularity of the current president.

I began reading Cap again during the death of Steve Rogers, after more then a decade away from comics. Captain America drew me back in. This attempt at political idiocy will drive me away.

@OXNARDM @RickSlot @MegaAwesomeSuperGuy MegaAwesomeSuperGuy is what's wrong with this country.  Captain America-STEVE ROGERS has been my favorite fictional character since I was a kid. There is NO replacement of him as designed by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. It isn't his race, it is his CHARACTER and VALUES that are unique to him-Rogers/C.A.  I have always loved the persona of Sam Wilson. Nobody can be the Falcon because nobody can replace the unique character, bravery, or skill, history, or honor that his character has displayed over the years. If someone wants to peddle racist accusations or push white guilt here, I say shove it sideways. Take it to a student union building, your snotty Starbucks tables, or to "THE BORG" of collectivist, mindless left wing morons at CNN or MSNBC blogs. Again, you can take your sanctimonious attitude and shove it, Junior.

Captain American is a fictional character but it is art.  I, for one, am beyond sick of left wing political fascism being injected into comic books by activist writers. I mean, it's their right, but we get it shoved in our faces in all other media. Some things are best left alone. Not all change is progressive-especially when it's left wing deconstructionism.  I'm tired of them pushing their worldview in comics.  I'm tired of their self-righteousness and their incomparable hypocrisy. 

That's what they've done by making a female Thor and making Sam Wilson Captain America.  It's not because Sam has unworthy character for that mantle-he more than is worthy.  It's because he is BLACK.  It's leftist disingenuous pandering and their "my way or the highway" view of social issues and their distorted and often relativist view of morality. Over the last decade, it's more relevant to know that a hero is now a homosexual.  Did someone's gay sex save the cosmos? Really???

In the 80's I saw Marvel writers take digs at Ronald Reagan. I was just a kid and the bias was as obvious as sunshine.  In the early 70s they did the same regarding Nixon. I saw their digs at Republicans, Conservatives, Christians, and Tea Party Groups during the Civil War and Buckey Barns as Cap phase. Well, what do you know?  George Walker Bush was in office.  What a coincidence! However, these urbo-centric social engineering left-wing activisits said nothing in their comics during Clinton's corruptions. They've been even more silent during the lawless and unabashed corruption of the most incompetent president in history-BARACK OBAMA. Democrats had a super majority when Obama took office. Yet they did NOTHING to repeal or amend the Patriot Act. That's why the Marvel Civil War allusion to Bush policies is, was, and always will be typical leftist HYPOCRISY.

Again, C.A. is a fictional character. But his character represents what has always been good and admired about the U.S. Today, the hedonistic and mindless youth are brainwashed to deconstruct things, spit on traditional values, throw obtuse and ridiculous platitudes at someone with a different worlview, while speaking from a moral high horse, and rewrite history.

I used to love the character development and sense of adventure in comic books.  But even this venue isn't immune from left wing propaganda and their annoying filth. C.A. is a product. I choose not to buy it because I choose not to put money in pockets of charlatans who preach to me through their art, rewrite history, or point a finger at me because of sins of the past. So, Marvel can shove it. Yes. Captain America died...a fictional character. But he was never resurrected.  He was dismantled and deconstructed by an ambitious activist who doesn't appreciate the greatness of the original character. He probably hates this country too, which apparently is becoming hip to the stupid. He was deconstructed by a self-loathing, pandering white leftist who hates a blond-haired, blue-eyed Caucasian who lived and fought to embody the greatness in American values. So making C.A. black will make everything right with the world and we narrow-minded white racists just need to "get with the program." BTW, Sam Wilson's childhood had parallels with Rogers and so does his honorable character. He had many of the same values.  But a writer like the current one has lied to us.  He simply made Wilson a token to push his twisted political beliefs. His ilk don't like Christians, conservatives, or others they find to be sanctimonious and PREACHY. Well, his pulpit is his writer's chair and I won't have him preach his left wing religion in what used to be my favorite art-comics. I don't care what attacking rebuttals I'll receive.  I FULLY expect them but I don't care. Good by Marvel. Hiring writers like him has insulted me for over a decade and a half. I won't put money into the pockets of people who continue to insult, mock, disparage, marginalize, or minimize what I value and believe.  You've been doing it for too long.

@Webster25 @OXNARDM @RickSlot @MegaAwesomeSuperGuy

While I respect your opinion as well as your right to express it, I must say I find it...extremist.

But, that is part of the problem, no one is willing to compromise, its either left or right, there is no whats best for the majority.This is the problem, its not us versus them, there is only us. The problem is the greed that has taken hold and the associated belief that somehow some of us are better or more deserving than others. 


 My objection to this title is not that Sam Wilson is now Captain America, that's a ratings gimmick and quite likely some kind of statement about society today, A statement that is needed. My objection is the characterization of Steve Rogers as some sort of jingoistic tool of the government. Steve would never have been concerned about the pictures the reporter had taken of Nuke's crimes, and he certainly did not need Sam to be his moral compass. The Steve Rogers I grew up reading would have exposed this activity himself.
