This is not the first time that Steve Rogers has given up the mantle. But, one of the time was where he was thought dead. His serum is almost all gone, which is keeping him from being the full Super Soldier. But, Marvel’s record of fully getting rid of Steve Rogers as the Captain isn’t a sweep. So, is this the end of Rogers as Captain America? Only time will tell.
CAPTAIN AMERICA #25 Asks – Who Is The New Captain America?
This October, bear witness to the next exciting phase of the Marvel Universe, as the torch is passed and a new hero will rise. Today, Marvel is proud to officially unveil the cover to CAPTAIN AMERICA #25 – the extra sized issue from chart-topping writer Rick Remender and the epic finale to The Tomorrow Soldier arc. Remender and artist Carlos Pacheco will have fans on the edge of their seat and have the whole comic industry asking – ‘Who is the All-New Captain America’?
Steve Rogers is a frail, broken man. Drained of the Super Soldier serum by a fearsome new enemy, he can no longer wield the shield as Captain America. The mind willing, but the body unable – the Sentinel of Liberty must choose his successor. But who will carry the mantle?
“The choice he has before him as to who he’s going to select as his replacement seems 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,” says Remender in an interview with Marvel.com.
Elaborating on the new Captain America, Remender said “It offers up 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 fans will dig what we’ve got coming up.”
The Red Skull and Zola have joined forces and the invasion by Dimension Z has begun. In the shadow of the coming storm, a new Captain America will rise – but who will pick up the shield and fill the void Steve Rogers left behind? Find out when history is made this October in the super-soldier-sized CAPTAIN AMERICA #25!
