Marvel is introducing a new Captain America aaaand he's gay.

Announced last week, Marvel Comics will celebrate the 80th anniversary of Captain America with a brand-new limited series this June titled The United States Of Captain America.


Aaron Fischer is described as "the Captain America of the Railways – a fearless teen who stepped up to protect fellow runaways and the unhoused" and that "Marvel Comics is proud to honor Pride Month with the rise of this new LGBTQ+ hero.

Ooh he even has an edgy neck tattoo! Slay!

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