We learned this week that Sam Wilson will be taking up the star-spangled shield as the all-new Captain America, but who will fill his wings as The Falcon?

Could it be Stephen Colbert?

Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada swung by "The Colbert Report" to break the news of the new Cap, and also hand-delivered this original piece by Kris Anka depicting the late night host as a high-flying hero...
      Will Colbert heed the call? Only time--and Stephen--will tell.

      In the mean time, read up on the all-new Captain America and stay tuned for more news in a busy week!

      Sam is Falcon.  Enough with the interchangeability.  It is lazy and a worn retread device!  People come to these titles because they love the character (whether Steve Rogers/Cap, Thor, Sam/Falcon etc., etc.).  Interchangeability and these cycles of character shuffle are merely a device to make up for lack of creativity.  So we try to have the shuffle top the last shuffle, because everyone knows it's a gimmick.  Great story telling wins out.  Not okay, mediocrity and changing the cape so we can now see other characters try to fill the shoes of the people we pay to see kick ass every month!  Give us a truly spectacular, superior Sam Wilson title where Falcon soars and Marvel throws behind it with marketing and creative heft.  Not Sam in Steve's shadow and everyone knows the parachute is in place for Steve to take the reins once more.  Yikes, this is old. And we want better.

      This is totally unacceptable! Where is Suey Park at? We can't have real people mocking comic book characters!

      @amany It's a joke. That's just an original piece of art they gave him as a gift.

      Wait! Wait! I have just been informed that this was the 'character' Stephen Colbert and not the 'real' Stephen Colbert portraying the Falcon.
