Stephen Colbert broke the news earlier this week: Sam Wilson takes over as Cap


It's time for some people to get their white hoods all starched and ironed up!

I think it's a brilliant choice. Sam Wilson has been a stalwart hero in the Marvel Universe for decades and I think he will do a fine job keeping Cap's shield warm until Steve regains his abilities.

I'm less pleased with the decision to turn Thor into a girl.Laughing If they wanted to do Thor as a girl, what's wrong with Valkyrie?

I don't keep up with Marvel so why is Thor a girl and why is Falcon the new Captain America? Wasn't this done not too many years ago by Marvel when Steve was "killed" and Bucky became Cap and there was some weird guy who was the new Thor?

There are no new ideas anymore, only recycled ones.

Other people who have been Captain America:

John Walker - once the Super-Patriot, currently U.S. Agent
Bucky "Winter Soldier" Barnes

There were almost a half dozen other replacement Cap's briefly at some time or another plus in Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty, Sam assumes the identity when Steve goes down. Don't forget Isaiah Bradley from the Red, White and Black mini either.

Thor has never been a woman but Loki has. Thor has had a number of identities as well.

Eric Masterson, Sigurd Jarlson, Jake Olson oh yeah, and Don Blake. And the frog!!!

If it makes for a good story I'm all for it.

We all know that Steve will be back at some point, right? Big Grin

I actually saw outrage about this on Facebook. Before I read the Cap news, I was lost as to why he was ranting about comic book political agendas and pandering. Dean Trippe put it best, "If you can't like Captain America anymore because he's black there's a word for that."

More attempts at faux "diversity." More generating of "controversial stunts," rather than solid and effective storytelling. It's nothing new. It seems that's all Marvel and DC are able to do anymore. Sad. Sigh

Says the guy with Kyle Raynor as his avatar.

Nothing personal. Just thought it was ironic. And proof that controversial stunts and solid and effective storytelling aren't mutual exclusive.

I don't have a problem with Sam stepping in. He has earned his shot and has been one of Steve's best friends. What I am more annoyed with..is why in the hell didn't they just bring Bucky in from the dark and have him step back in. He was a fantastic Cap. It would have made more sense that way and they could tie it in with the movies more.

Because it is a sales gimmick and we know it. If Marvel leaves Thor as a girl and makes Thor a girl in their next movies I will eat my hat.

As with all "changes" this wont stay long. It will last for a year or so then there will be a big "return" of the original. There always is.

I think the outrage comes with the major changes and retcons, not fill in changes.

Hell, if anybody deserves to fill in for Cap it's Sam.

They need to stop will all this crap! Nick Fury looks more like David Hasselhoff than Samuel L Jackson! Johnny Storm is Johnny Storm!

If they want to introduce more non white comic heroes, use the ones that already exist!

Black Panther, Deathlok, Luke Cage or, I don't know, CREATE SOME MORE!

Stop messing with my childhood heroes!
