A new age of Captain America is set to get underway this year as Marvel launches two new ongoing titles, with writers Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly and artist Carmen Carnero telling the adventures of Steve Rogers in Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty and writer Tochi Onyebuchi and artist R.B. Silva taking the reins on Sam Wilson’s shield-bearer in Captain America: Symbol of Truth.
Leading in to the two ongoing titles is next month’s Captain America #0, and we’ve got a first-look preview of the issue for you here; check it out….
“You can see in the #0 issue that we’re getting to play with our favorite scientist, Arnim Zola, THE BIO-FANATIC!” said Kelly. “That’s a really fun touchstone for us, but what we wanted to do is introduce a new cast of villains. These villains pulling the strings have their own personalities and motivations and they command a force unlike any Captain America has ever seen. That includes lieutenants, generals, and power players. They are critical players in the history of the Marvel Universe, American history, and the world history of the last hundred years. We’re giving those characters individual identities that will allow them to stand on their own. So, if and when we do bring in some more of these legacy villains, we want them to be able to stand toe-to-toe with Doctor Doom… These will be characters that Doom also knows of and is reluctant to cross.”
