Just days after going on The View to announce a new female Thor, Marvel continued to shake up their Big Three!
Steve Rogers recently lost his powers in the comics, so who will take his place as Captain America has been a huge question for fans of late. Well, they finally have their answer!
CCO Joe Quesada stopped by The Colbert Report to announce that the new Captain America will be…
Sam Wilson, AKA The Falcon!
That's right! Come October, we'll have a black Captain America!
This is truly fitting, not just because The Falcon has been Cap's wingman for years, but because Isaiah Bradley, the first Captain America ever, was black.
Of course Stephen Colbert, who as we all know doesn't see color, had a different reaction than most. Always seeking new titles for himself, he wondered about who would be taking Sam's place as The Falcon…
Well, that's when Joe presented him with THIS:
A nerdy Falcon! What will they think of next? LOLz!
