Gayes.we have another one! Our favorite character who stood for the oppressed, and the forgotten will now stand for LGBTQ+ as the 1st gay Captain America.


On Thursday Marvel Comics celebrated its 80th anniversary of the hero, launching the new series, The United States of Captain America.


The new series will be written by Christopher Cantwell and drawn by Dale Eaglesham . The series will follow four characters — Steve Rogers, Sam Wilson, Bucky Barnes, and John Walker — as they look for Steve's missing shield. Along the way, they will meet others inspired by the symbol of Captain America. Aaron Fischer will be one of them. Fischer, a gay teenager, will soon take on the mantle of Captain America.

The animated creator of the new LGBT Character, Jan Bazaldua spoke with the guardian & shared her excitement in editing Fischer.

“As a transgender person, I am happy to be able to present an openly gay person who admires Captain America and fights against evil to help those who are almost invisible to society...While I was drawing him, I thought, well, Cap fights against super-powerful beings and saves the world almost always, but Aaron helps those who walk alone in the street with problems that they face every day.


According to Rolling Stone, The first issue of The United States of Captain America, will be released in June as a celebration of Pride Month.


Gayes, are you excited?
