Exclusive: An All-New Captain America Debuts This Fall

Rick Remender shares breaking details about Steve Rogers’ new role as well as his successor!

The mind is willing, but Steve Rogers can no longer carry his shield into battle.

After a dire encounter with the Iron Nail, Rogers finally shows the brunt of his 90 years on Earth. The time has come for the old man to find a new outlet for his patriotic sense of duty, and to counsel the next Captain America.

This fall sees the rise of a new Captain America, just as the Red Skull marches to AXIS. It all starts in CAPTAIN AMERICA #25.

“This is the final bit of story that we started off in CAPTAIN AMERICA #1 with the opening of Dimension Z,” writer Rick Remender explains. “Beyond that we’ve also got a nice tie-in to AXIS. Zola and Red Skull have been in cahoots, Red Skull having been a consciousness saved by Zola and then given a new body. Now we’ve reached the payout. The issue itself is just bombastic action. It’s Steve Rogers doing his very best to deal with a huge escalation in Zola’s war against the Avengers and mankind. There are a number of guest stars in it. We’ve got Iron Man and Hulk and Thor doing what they can to stave off Zola and his invading armies.

“We’ve also got the return of a few surprise characters we haven’t seen in a while. We’ve got a betrayal of a cast member and we’ve got the reveal of the new Captain America.”

But where does that leave Steve Rogers?

“Steve is in a spot where he’s still determined to serve, and he’s still determined to have a positive influence on the world around him,” Remender says. “He wants to work to defend his nation and his world, but he’s left in a physical state of not being able to perform. The choices he has before him as to who he’s going to select as his replacement seem very simple at this point—it’s a short list—but we’re revealing a number of characters in #23 who’ve been gone for a while, that decision gets a little trickier. Steve hasn’t had a lot of time to concern himself with these things. Literally a day after the Iron Nail debacle when he lost the Super Soldier Serum and rapidly aged to the physical age he would have been had he never been frozen, he’s forced to make some hard decisions.

      “He’s a man in his 90s now without the frame or physical strength, but that doesn’t mean he’s out of the fight. He’s basically orchestrating things and playing tactician, fighting against Zola, using his friends in the Avengers to try and do so. He’s waging a war from a room rather than the front lines, which is new for Steve. There might be some shuffle boarding in his future. I do like the idea of giving Steve a bit of a break once the new Cap steps up and takes the mantle for a while. Steve’s going to continue to play a role in the series as mentor and tactician and eye in the sky, running ops and things. He’s got all of his faculties and is still the super soldier he earned the right to be called; he just lacks the physical form.”

      Though numerous others—from William Naslund and William Burnside to John Walker and James “Bucky” Barnes—have wielded the shield and answered that same call, Steve Rogers remains the most popular individual to assume the role of Captain America. His name remains synonymous with the cause. Will he be so willing to relinquish that mantel?

      “I think that Steve himself realizes that there’s always going to be a Captain America,” Remender contends. “It’s an honor and a privilege to serve in that role, but no one man is Captain America. There were a lot of reasons I wanted to do what I’ve done here. I pitched it. I proposed it. I put it all together. There wasn’t any sort of a mandate to do it.

      “There are a number of changes that happen with the new Captain America that allow me to write and tell stories from a perspective that’s quite different from a WWII soldier and a child of the Great Depression. That ‘Man Out of Time’ aspect of Cap is such a great part of his character, but who this new Captain America is in contrast allows for stories where the modern world is a bit more connected to the lead. It’s a completely different perspective. It’s quite possible that the new Captain America isn’t one to be a soldier. Then you start getting into some questions. Somebody who wants to serve their country and is still highly motivated to do so, but isn’t a soldier, isn’t someone with experience taking orders or navigating that world. It offers up a lot of new opportunities and a lot of new drama as well as getting to tell Captain America stories with an entirely different character, a character I have a real affinity for and like to write. I think the fans will dig what we’ve got coming up.”

      The unveiling of a new Cap will unfold in the pages of CAPTAIN AMERICA! Stay tuned for the revelation of their identity in the coming weeks!

      Sorry but could someone explain to me why he aged to 90 years old? Does the Iron Nails powers age his victims? He was in suspended animation, he didn't take some serum like Nick Fury to prevent aging. Very confused.

      Maybe old man Steve and Nick Sr will move into a retirement community together and host poker nights with Dum Dum and whoever is left from the "culling" of all the Howlers these past few years. Old woman Sharon and the Contessa could bring over the beer. I'd get excited about a comic like that!

      I will continue to read to judge for myself, however I feel the Steve Rogers character does not get as much respect as other characters.  As I read, I see other characters evolving except for Steve.  He was always more than a soldier, he was a character that tried to do the right things always but never was somebody who judged, which seems at times some writers seem to do.  This was also a character who had such a strong work ethic which led to him being the master tactician and fighter that seems to have disappeared.

      It will come to no one's surprise when in April 2016 Captain America 'miraculously' regains his youth just in time before the movie premiere of 'Captain America 3' in May.

      Damn Remender doesn't have a clue with this book. Only good thing to come of this is Remender normally writes in circles and leaves things the same way he got them, So if Sharon is coming back, maybe that means he will leave the title soon. Frankly, I see Marvel relaunching Captain America, Avenger, Thor, Iron Man just in time for the second Avengers movie.


      I do fail to see why Marvel has not chosen to move Remender from this title. His sales are horribly low, this story line seems like he is watering down classic stories. Someone here said that the best stories change the status quo and that is true, but after you have shaken the same status quo the same time so many times before, It's no longer a shake up is a cliche.

       

      Marvel I will not talk trash about my favorite comic company, but please Ricks time on This book is up after this arc please get a new creative team.

      "CAPTAIN America". The name is indicative of a soldier. If it's some anti-hero, change the name. It's nonsensical. Let Patriot take the good shield and keep his name. Not my circus, not my monkeys anymore.

      Your money speaks louder than your mouth (or fingers).  If you want to see it, then buy it.  If you think it's a horrible travesty, then don't pick it up.  Honestly, I lost interest in the majority of Marvel's books a couple of years ago, so I don't care either way.  That being said, if the first run doesn't sell out, I'd be surprised.

      Uh, oh, back for rant #2. This is one is tenuously related to this comment section, so sorry.


      I happened to notice in another Marvel book a bit that said something like "this story happens before the events of Captain America #21", because in the story, Cap was still young and healthy. That's really nice that they bothered to mention that, because in almost all of the other Marvel books, especially any titles that have an Avenger in them, I can't keep up with the broken continuity. I mean seriously, Iron Man has been on/off planet, Cap in another dimension, Hulk is smart/dumb/whatever. The Avengers as a group has been fighting the Red Skull on Earth, fighting in space and trying to stop the convergence thing - all at the same apparent time!!! And some of these stories have been written by the same freaking writer!!!


      I know Marvel is into Epic Event of the Month mode, but geez, make an effort to work together on these stories. I've taken to considering that all of these stories are just taking place in alternate universes and some future 'crisis' event will sort it all out.


      And to be fair, DC, which historically has at least tried to fix their continuity blunders, is on a ridiculous pace to make their universe more confusing that it has ever been. Exactly how many storylines do they have going on with an 'evil' Superman going on right now? There is a character reboot that is starting to look very tired, very quickly.

      My issue with the current storyline is that it seems like lazy writing. Bringing in a new Captain America has been done several times before, for various reasons. The problem is, I don't really care who the new Captain America is, because I'll just be waiting for Steve Rogers to come back. If he doesn't, I probably won't be reading a lot of Cap stories in the future.


      From what I remember, all of the previous 'new Cap' stories were not that successful. Now, this one might work out, who knows? But the whole plot line with Zola was extremely bad to me (Cap having a 'son',really? Read many Batman comics Rick?)


      Here's the thing, the character of Captain America, his persona, is based on tradition. Captain America is Captain America because of his back story, his life, which made Steve Rogers into what he is. The intriguing and interesting thing about Captain America is Steve Rogers, his patriotism, his leadership, his code of honor, and his values.


      I get it, writers probably don't like writing a character like Captain America (and similarly, Superman) because they feel limited in what they can do without upsetting the archetype, so they want to change it up so they can get a little artistic freedom. But you know what, I still say that's lazy writing. The thing worth doing is almost always the thing that's a harder to do. 


      OK, so now, at the risk of offending a lot of people, I've read a lot of comments about the possibility of the new Cap being Sam Wilson, who is black. This seems to upset a lot of people, and a lot of others seem to think it's about time. Whoever it turns out to be, it's an example of an interesting new trend in comics, that I also attribute in part to to laziness; but it's really just another way for comic publishers to chase new subscribers. Nothing wrong with that, right? It's what has always been done in publishing in general. This new trend is this, create a new character, or turn an existing character into a [ black, gay, muslim, hispanic, etc. ] character. Stop and think about it, this is classic exploitation. It's no different than the Blaxploitation films of the 70s. Is this necessarily bad? No, but when the writing is lazy, and it's apparent that the race or gender of a character is there just to cause a buzz (which is getting increasingly hard to do), then my view is that it needs to stop.

      New Cap is Ian...aged in Duh-Mension Z and returning to Earth with Sharon Carter as part of Zola's invasion. Remender has a habit of seeding his stories in the earliest stages so he can pull stuff up later. Either way, I hate the sh*t he's done to Cap and can't wait until his run is over...The character deserves so much better.

      Hey Marvel! Why are you so embarrassed by this character or are you ashamed of him for some reason? Its the only thing that makes sense for the way you treat him, but then again you seem to be doing that with many titles these days.

      What the hell??? You've got to be kidding me. Not this again.... please wake-up and grow-up so you will stop doing ignorant and childish bunk like this. It's really getting old, and in all honestly I am just to damn tired to support fraking bunk like this.

      Go ahead and  do what you want, but you won't be getting any of my money while you're doing it. it's past time to for Marvel to stop the same old stories of "Let's find YET ANOTEHR WAY to replace Steve as Captain America,"  because all it does is show how unimaginative you are. If things can't be some kind of massive 'Event' that ties everything together and makes the fans buy every fraking issue that printed by the company every few months or the readers don't get the full story, it's not wanted by the companies now. What the hell has happened to the "House of Ideas"? We can't blame Disney for this, because those in charge of Marvel (Yes I am looking at you Joe Quesada) have been the ones who've been responsible for all of the same kind of third and fourth rate bunk that's been put out.

      It's blatantly obvious that this is yet just another attempt to make some kind of a 'splash' in the mainstream news in an effort to get sales up. I loathed the tired and worthless Brubaker run that didn't capture the real feel of Captain America, and i refused to buy them. If you are wanting a super-spy and conspiracy laden book, then put it out... that's what Black Widow is all about for God's sake. Don't even get me started on how bad it was to bring Bucky back in the comics.... the movies made sense, but in the comics as Brubaker wrote it was just so damn stupid that it totally defies all forms of logic that acts like we're all idiots and will accept anything you put out. 

      So stop screwing with things that work, write the kinds of stories that we want to read. 

      Hell, I found the entire Zola stories in an other dimension uninspired and pretty lame and stopped buying them because it didn't feel like Captain America... but at least I didn't have a bad taste in my mouth after reading them that I had when I tried to read any of the issues of Brubaker's uninspired run with whole let's bring Bucky back and make him the new Cap because the fans are stupid and won't mind it because they're just like the Star Trek Fans who won't mind us totally screwing things up with out a rudder or storyline on "Star Trek: Enterprise!" 

      Both of those story lines (and not to mention the entire Civil War/Siege bunk) had felt just entirely wrong... they were not enjoyable and where not worth my hard earned money (and when i say hard earned, i mean being blow the hell while in a hell getting marines to safety) because it just did not tell a story that made any sense nor granted any entertainment.

      I'm so close to just dropping Marve Comics it's not even funny. They've screwed up the Ultimate line and they are constantly screwing with the main 616 line since the power that be are all about throwing out continuity if they think they can do something that will make the fans upset and get a lot of people to buy extra comics just to get the sales up... not realizing that pissing on the fans is what drives them away and you end up with what happened during the Dork Age of Comics when they kept doing all those variant covers, stupid story-lines and the like...

      Because it nearly killed the industry.

      And while the movies are making a butt-load of money, that can go away just as easy as the crash happened and almost killed the comic industry. And it's bunk like this, that will lead to that. So keep it up, you aren't getting my money that was earned when i was shot, stabbed and brutally beaten in the service of my country because I loved it and it's people a hell of a lot more than I have ever cared about me and my life. My companions called me "Captain America" because i loved this country that much, and that I could tell them about the lives of the founders, i could tell them about the history of this nation (both good and bad), and i could tell them all about just what went into building it and how to fix what was wrong. That I knew the bad, but saw the good and worked for that good. To them, that was what mattered.

      I love Captain America and I am getting so damn tired of you people screwing with something that works just to get a little extra money coming in, and having you pissing on me while saying it's raining.

      How many times has Marvel done this same OLD story idea of robbing Steve Rogers of the Super-Soldier Serum over the years?

      WAY TO DAMN MANY!

      We've lost count and we are beyond tired of it! It's pretty much the comic book equivalent of the Fonz jumping a new shark every other week on Happy Days with all the other stories being repeated during the intervening weeks (with the actors reacting the same scenes over and over again while the character's don't realize that they're about to get screwed over really, really bad when the eps is over), and is the worse form of POOR STORY-TELLING. There is nothing NEW with doing this kind of storyline. NONE.

      So have fun, as I have already said... you won't be getting my money while you are doing it.

      It will be the Falcon for many reasons.  1) popular black hero! 2) He is close with cap. 3) People will know him from the movie. 4) strong american values.


      Although, we all know Cap will be back in the suit in 2-3 years.

      This is HILARIOUS. Not the story though. THIS THREAD. 
      So called comic book fans are some of the most unimaginative, callow, self-involved "people" I've ever seen. 

      Most of the great comic stories have to do with shaking up and changing the status quo. 

      People were bitching about the EXACT SAME THING years ago when they "killed" Cap during Brubaker's run. People called Brubaker a hack and a bad writer and yet we got a few years of GREAT Cap stories WITHOUT Steve Rogers. 

      Remender is doing something very different in tone from what Brubaker did and I applaud him for it. If we listened to fandom? THIS FANDOM? we'd get nothing but "safe" stories. Introduce bad guy. Conflict with Cap. Cap shield bashes baddie in the face. THE END. 

      The one thing I used to like about DC before I dropped the entire line after New52 (I voted with my feet instead of slagging the company or the writers) is that they had legitimate legacy characters. Characters who took up the mantle after a another retired or was taken out of play. The Flash, Mr. Terrific, Green Lantern. So in comics the idea of a temporary replacement it's nothing new yet here we are on a comics board with people going absolutely nuclear over something that's pretty much a staple of the genre.

      Is this comic book in line with the other ones? As far as I can tell, Cap is perfectly fine and travelling through time, and yet I read my Cap book, and he doesn't care one whit about any of the Original Sin stuff, and is suddenly aged out of being Cap. If its a separate thing, great. I loved the father son thing and will be happy for Ian to show up again. If its going to affect every other book...then I'll probably just drop stuff until he comes back.

      I know themes and stories will repeat, but replacing Cap just so he can have another triumphant return? At least wait a decade. You can do better than this.

      Personally I hope that Cap will be given a twist, such as making him non-caucasian, or maybe a her, or both. Like someone already mentioned, Falcon would be a cool candidate in my opinion.

      How many times does a character have to be replaced to keep people happy or interested?  It's not enough to just run storylines with the characters as themselves? Remender does another bang up job of using someone else's storyline to write his character. Send him off to do the Fantastic Four or something. They die off or get replaced every other month. He will fit right in. So far Marvel tried to make Hawkeye into Cap, (thank God that died off before it got started), they made Bucky into Cap, and now they want to do it  with another character again. Only this time instead of killing him, they just want to make him an invalid. Yeah, like they haven't done that before. 


      Grow up, Marvel.

      Although Steve Rogers is not my favourite character and I dont't read his own comic, his involvement in comics like Avengers, Uncanny Avengers and most recently All New-Invaders is always nice. Clearly a new cap will also influence these comics. I wont rant that it will be bad from the start but clearly this did not work out to good in the past already so I really understand people that are sceptical or back out already because it's never ever gonna be what they liked about Steve Rogers. It can be good new or bad new but its never Steve Rogers new.

      My favorite Marvel character is the STEVE ROGERS'S captain America. I don't want to read about anyone else and I have before but it is just not the same!!! I am going to stop reading Rememnder's crappy series and wait till I get the character that I like to see fight crime come back. I genuinely think that Marvel needs to get Brubaker back writing Cap comics because he knows what he is doing! I mean they based an AMAZING Marvel movie off of the comic book series he created! If he doesn't come back as Captain America really soon then I think Marvel just lost one of their comic book buyers...not happy.

      Well I think the first thing I want to point out is that the Red Skull is getting a respawn from Zola while there's already a Red Skull respawn on the field in the Uncanny Avengers storyline. And his daughter, also calling herself Red Skull, is still kicking about last I saw. So we now have at least 3 Red Skulls with presumably similar goals active around the same time and having nothing to do with eachother.


      It'd be okay to just use one of the existing two in this, it'd actually be a good opportunity for crossing story arcs.


      As for new Cap, well I want it to be good. I'm okay with the idea of Steve moving on and someone else stepping in, I like the idea of watching them grow into the role. The big problem is that I remember what happened last time. I remember the Falcon and Bucky going after the Watchdogs, a terrorist caricature of the Tea Party. Now, having opposing ideals and groups appear in a comic like this is great when it's a way to frame the debate. And giving them legitimate arguments makes them more compelling, villainous or not. But turning groups with ideals opposed to your own into comically ignorant and blatantly racist is not compelling, and it's actually pretty creepy. It took me from wanting to see Captain Bucky succeed to wanting nothing to do with the series.


      I suppose the best way I can sum that up is that I'm concerned the lack of Steve's olde time morals in the new Cap will risk turning the series into a venue for the writer's beliefs to vilify and condemn opposing viewpoints. I realize that has happened on and off before, I'm just hoping it's not about to go back on.

      Total crap!  I have been a fan for 30+ years and I can't believe Marvel continues to totally destroy the characters that made this company great.  This has been done over and over and it just never works out.  I am ready to stop collecting and reading marvel comics for good.  No one in this company can come up with any original new and exciting heroes or villains?  Shocking!  Just keep ruining what you got.  There hasn't been a good character created since deadpool in the nineties.  How many times have marvel tried to remake Captain Marvel only to fail.  The original is still the best (by the way bring him back).  Says something about the characters you have.  Leave them as is and just tell great stories or create a new character for Captain America to fight or partner with please.

      This is easy it is his son from Dimension Z.  This is getting old. It was about 3 years ago it was a "new" Captain America, who was  Bucky Barnes.   It is getting pretty old all of these rehashed plots.  It is time for originality.  This is a bad parody of Batman Beyond, where now Cap is old Bruce Wayne and his son from Dimension Z is the "new" Cap.  He will instruct and develop the young dimesion Z character in all of the ways of truth and justice and blah, blah.  He will have also aged during the time Cap left to become an adult.

      Get Rememnder off of this title please. He has shown he has no clue What he is doing and just rehashing old stories. If I wanted Kirby Cap I would go read the real thing not the trash that was the Z Dimension and the same goes for a fill in Cap I will read Brubakers masterwork not Remender's rip off. Oh and one more thing, If I wanted Big Barda I would read her over at DC not Jet Black the teen angst ridden, Unknown aged dopple ganger who's questionable age was used to fuel a fake controversy.

      Up to know I've really liked Remender's work. Dimension Z, the mini arc with Nuke, and the Iron Nail arc were great, IMO. But I'm unsure of the re-hashed "New Cap" story line. As I've said I've really liked his run so far, so for now, at least, I'll give him the befefit of the doubt.

      "No one man is Captain America"


      Which is, of course, why he came back from the dead, and why every time he's passed the shield to another person, he always gets it back.


      I'm sure this will be a perfectly good story, and I'm perfectly willing to enjoy it, but seriously, any iteration of "this is forever" borders on insulting.  We will eventually see a return to first position.  The challenge, as Dan Slott did so well in Spider-Man and was done in Cap a few years back, is making the "new" hero so good and interesting that you might almost want the new guy to hang around.


      But not really.

      We've seen this kind of thing before.  I can only imagine it will only last a few months or maybe a year before Steve Rogers is somehow miraculously able to take up the mantle of Captain America again.  Not original.  I'm hoping its interesting enough to survive it.  Is there anyone who doesn't think the new cap (intentionally not capitalized) is going to be Ian?  Can't wait for that "shocking" reveal.  I remember when the Super Patriot (John Walker) was first created so he could end up taking the mantle of Cap for around 15 issues or so.  That was a very long year.  Bucky Cap is still stuck in my mind and now this?  The cycle is repeating much more rapidly.

      @RickBullard I never called Brubaker a "hack", he is one of the few writers that understand the character. I didn't have a problem with him, until he pulled that deactivating the super soldier serum crap. Remender might be a good writer, I can't say, but what I can say is that he has no feel or respect for this character.

      @RickBullard I agree with a lot of what you say but like dc did with the golden age to silver age keep the character in the suit so to speak. Barry Allen replaced jay Carrick in a way but he is still our flash today. Marvel does the couple of years thing and here comes the original back. If you replace someone build the character keep him replaced

      @X.S.E. - Malcolm i doubt it marvel has shown they don't have the guts to do that in 616 thats why miles is an ultimate character personalty if they did id stop reading im only really a fan of steve rogers and his story sure you can give someone the suit and draw them the same in it but thats just not a story id care about thats why i disliked bucky cap and all these other caps and if they made him a women id never read another marvel comic again in my life what a slap in the face that would be i hope they have the integrity to not do such a monstrosity

      @X.S.E. - Malcolm @LanceTheUnemployedXman  I think his comment, while not very well structured, is not chauvanism at all.  It's about the familiarity of the character.  Would you rather a woman is Captain America as a stunt for a few months only to be thrown away, or that a new female character who is interesting, well written, and stands on her own merit is created? Steve Rogers will be Captain America because Steve Rogers IS Captain America.  For the same reason Diana Prince Wonder Woman will never be Dan Prince, "Wonder dude".
