Marvel annonce la mini-série The United States of Captain America, qui réunira Steve Rogers, Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson et John Walker dans une quête à travers les Etats-Unis pour retrouver le bouclier volé de la Sentinelle de la Liberté.

En plus de l’histoire principale par Christopher Cantwell et Dale Eaglesham, chaque numéro proposera une back-up confiée à différentes équipes créatives.

Le #1 sortira le 2 juin.

"Steve Rogers. John Walker. Bucky Barnes. Sam Wilson. In honor of the iconic hero’s 80th anniversary, these four heroes who have taken up the mantle of Captain America will team up in a brand-new limited series.

"The United States of Captain America will celebrate the character’s incredible legacy by bringing together various Captains America from throughout the years for a grand adventure to find Captain America’s missing shield and solve the mystery of his masked thief’s plan. Along the way, fans will be introduced to fascinating new heroes who have been inspired to follow in Steve Roger’s footsteps. Joining Cantwell and Eaglesham will be an all-star lineup of diverse and extraordinary creative teams who will dive even deeper into the origins and motivations of these new shield-bearers in special backup stories, starting with a revolutionary tale by writer Josh Trujillo and artist Jan Balzadua. This intriguing examination of the very concepts that define Captain America will explore the powerful impact the hero has had on the world outside your window.

« The incredible saga kicks off when Captain America’s shield is stolen. No one understands the value of the shield like those who’ve wielded it, so Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson set out on a road trip across America to chase down the thief. But instead, they find the Captains, everyday people from all walks of life who’ve taken up the mantle of Captain America to defend their communities. And for some reason, the shield thief wants them all dead. Can Sam and Steve get to them first? »

Christopher Cantwell :

« It’s an incredible gift and definitely a creative challenge to take on the character of Captain America, especially during these unprecedented times in our country’s history. With this miniseries we’re hoping to explore what the idea of Captain America means at this precise moment – not just on the grand stage of the world – but to everyday and often overlooked communities throughout the United States, » Cantwell said. « This story is ultimately structured like a “road movie,” harkening back in ways to old Bob Rafelson and Hal Ashby films, with Steve Rogers – and soon Sam Wilson, and later… other key members in Steve’s life – getting to directly interact with those he represents as a symbol and has sworn to protect, but in an up close and personal way he hasn’t experienced in a while. I’m extremely excited to show how the idea of Captain America has been conceptualized and translated by various groups in the country, and for me the juice of the story is Cap reconciling so many interpretations of himself with himself, both as a person and as an icon. This kind of cross-country epic is uniquely American and seems like a fantastic way to celebrate the character’s legacy right now. »

Il monte en grade, Cantwell.

C’est ce que j’allais dire ! Futur scénariste des Avengers une fois que Aaron aura bouclé son intrigue sur Mephisto ?

Pour le coup, je miserais plus sur Al Ewing.

C’est un sérieux candidat aussi oui !

Oui. Après, même si ce n’était pas la série principale, il a déjà tâté du Vengeur.

Le coquin.

Et il s’est bien débrouillé avec cette itération actuelle de l’équipe quand il a eu l’occasion de les utiliser (dans un numéro d’Immortal Hulk et surtout dans Empyre).

ou du vengeur étoilé

Tout au long de leur périple, Cap et ses équipiers rencontreront des apprentis héros qui se sont inspirés de l’exemple du Vengeur étoilé pour défendre leurs quartiers, leurs communautés. Le premier sera un jeune homosexuel du nom de Aaron Fischer, présenté comme le « Captain America of the Railways ». Les back-ups de la mini-série seront consacrées à ces nouveaux personnages et celle de Aaron est signée Joshua Trujillo et Jan Bazaldua.

« Aaron is inspired by heroes of the queer community: activists, leaders, and everyday folks pushing for a better life, » Trujillo said. « He stands for the oppressed, and the forgotten. I hope his debut story resonates with readers, and helps inspire the next generation of heroes. »

« I want to thank editor Alanna Smith and Joshua Trujillo very much for asking me to create Aaron, » Bazaldua said. « I really enjoyed designing him, and as a transgender person, I am happy to be able to present an openly gay person who admires Captain America and fights against evil to help those who are almost invisible to society. While I was drawing him, I thought, well, Cap fights against super-powerful beings and saves the world almost always, but Aaron helps those who walk alone in the street with problems that they face every day. I hope people like the end result. »

S’il veut conserver son identité secrète je lui conseillerais de cacher ses tatouages et piercings… Ou de mettre des lunettes…

Pas convaincu qu’ils veulent la cacher, c’est plus symbolique la cagoule.

La symbolique de la cagoule je croyais que c’était corse plutôt pas américain… Ou du moins pas avec cette forme :thinking:

P’tet qu’il se balade avec de la copa :joy_cat:

Un saucisson d’âne et à l’attaque !!!

America ? C’est plus au sud.

Joli !

Dans le #2, Cap rencontrera Nichelle Wright, la Captain America de Harrisburg, Pennsylvanie.
La back-up est signée Mohale Mashigo et Natacha Bustos.

« The thing I can say about Nichelle is that she is working day and night to bring change into a world where she feels defeated. Nichelle is a light in a dark time and she wants to take ownership of her community and space in America. »
