They also joked about Stephen becoming the new Falcon, which would be nothing short of amazing.
For justice, ************!
Nah, they're probably building up to him being replaced bySniper Team 4 said:Oooooh...I wonder if this is going to carry over into the movies once Chris' contract expires and he's done. That would be a good way to keep the franchise going I think.
You can breath easy: I read in one of the news articles about this that he is definitely keeping the wings.Falterfire said:This makes a lot more sense than the Thor announcement because Falcon is an existing character and (based on the movie version) the sort of person qualified to pick up the shield and mantle of Captain America.
I will say though: If he doesn't get to keep the wings, he got the short end of the stick. Seriously, flying > shield. If I had a badass wingsuit and somebody asked me to trade it for a concave bit of metal I would tell them to go shove it.
Isn't that basically the reason they gave when they "killed" Steve off in 2007?Copper Zen said:Both comics are DAMNED hard to write for after 50 years. Putting new people into the "suits" gives writers fresh material to work with.
This reminds me of when people complained that Ms. Marvel was now Captain Marvel and complained CM was a girl, forgetting that we'd already had a female (and black) Captain Marvel in the 80s.softclocks said:Awkward publicity stunt by Marvel, desperately trying to claw in on some new readers through false diversification.
I'd rather see Sam get a promotion. He's one of Steve's oldest friends, dates back decades, and wore the suit in the 60s.We already have Patriot as the black Captain America, I'd much rather see him get a promotion.
If it lasts a "few years," it will be a success. This is comics we're talking about.Still, this will only stick for a few months/years and its back to ordinary.
Except when he's not. For example, when John Walker is Cap, or that guy from SHIELD, or....RatGouf said:I like Captain America as a White Male because he represents an era that is pretty much gone.
As you say, "barely." The disparity between the current character and the future character's respect to the fictional character of Thor is a drop in the bucket. Especially since the capacity for another person to wield Thor's powers and even "be" Thor is established in the character's own book.I like Thor as a White Male because he (barely) represents the actual mythology.
