After losing the Super Soldier Serum that gave him his powers and vitality, Steve Rogers rapidly aged and was forced to surrender the role of Captain America. But his on-again, off-again super sidekick Sam Wilson (a.k.a. the Falcon) is picking up the shield in October’s Captain America #35, and will headline a new ongoing series, All-New Captain America, launching this fall.
Writer Rick Remender (along with artist Stuart Immonen) promised Marvel.com an exciting new status quo:
This is the fireworks factory we’re arriving at, and now everything’s going to blow up and be very pretty and exciting to look at. I think that it’s important with these stories to do things that are natural and make sense and have an inherent logic to the universe, but are also constantly shifting and exciting, keeping the drama high. In order to do that it really comes down to creating new dynamics.
