FIRST LOOK: CAPTAIN AMERICA #25 Asks – Who Is The New Captain America?

July 8th, 2014 by Marc Comments

This October, bear witness to the next exciting phase of the Marvel Universe, as the torch is passed and a new hero will rise. Today, Marvel is proud to officially unveil the cover to CAPTAIN AMERICA #25 – the extra sized issue from chart-topping writer Rick Remender and the epic finale to The Tomorrow Soldier arc. Remender and artist Carlos Pacheco will have fans on the edge of their seat and have the whole comic industry asking – ‘Who is the All-New Captain America’?

Steve Rogers is a frail, broken man. Drained of the Super Soldier serum by a fearsome new enemy, he can no longer wield the shield as Captain America. The mind willing, but the body unable – the Sentinel of Liberty must choose his successor. But who will carry the mantle?

“The choice he has before him as to who he’s going to select as his replacement seems very simple at this point – it’s a short list – but we’re revealing a number of characters in #23 who’ve been gone for a while, that decision gets a little trickier,” says Remender in an interview with

Elaborating on the new Captain America, Remender said “It offers up a lot of new drama as well as getting to tell Captain America stories with an entirely different character, a character I have a real affinity for and like to write. I think fans will dig what we’ve got coming up.”

The Red Skull and Zola have joined forces and the invasion by Dimension Z has begun. In the shadow of the coming storm, a new Captain America will rise – but who will pick up the shield and fill the void Steve Rogers left behind? Find out when history is made this October in the super-soldier-sized CAPTAIN AMERICA #25!

Coming in October!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
