Steve Rogers: Super Soldier

Posted by LiveFor on April 16, 2010

Marvel recently debuted The Secret Avengers which included a non Captain America Steve Rogers.

Bleeding Cool have dug up some more on Rogers letting Bucky carry on as Cap.
Award-winning writer Ed Brubaker and artist Dale Eaglesham of FANTASTIC FOUR join forces this July to debut a new life, a new role and a new mission for the man formerly known as Captain America.

STEVE ROGERS: SUPER-SOLDIER, a four-issue limited series, reintroduces one of Marvel’s longest-running characters in an entirely new light. No longer Captain America and with his old sidekick wielding the famous shield, Steve Rogers must forge ahead and carve out a new place for himself in the Marvel Universe.

Brubaker explains the thought process that went into Steve Rogers’ latest foray into action following the blockbuster Siege.

“It felt like Bucky was doing a great job as Cap, fans dig him in the role [and] I enjoy writing him as Cap,” he says. “And it occurred to me that Steve was going to get put through the wringer on his way back to the present, and may have reasons for not wanting to put the Cap uniform back on and go all public for a while, if not forever.”

Those reasons remain classified information for now, but conjure up questions concerning Rogers’ long-time career as Captain America, his brief sojourn as Nomad and how he’ll acclimate to his new role.

“You’ll have to read SUPER-SOLDIER to find out,” Brubaker suggests. “Those questions are part of his journey, things he has to ask himself.”

Steve Rogers does not exist in a vacuum, of course, and the Marvel Universe’s reaction to his new mission may prove to be significantly different than their attitude towards his previous one.

“I don’t think the public at large will know anything about what he’s doing,” Brubaker says. ”He’ll be more like a James Bond for the Marvel Universe, operating covertly to save the world.”

Perhaps one of the most exciting aspects of STEVE ROGERS: SUPER-SOLDIER may come in waiting to see if Steve takes on a new look or codename. Brubaker says that too will be revealed in the series.

“Definitely a new outfit, one that more suits his current role,” he promises. ”But most people are just calling him ‘Steve’ so far.”

The Secret Avengers – Full line up includes Steve Rogers

Posted by LiveFor on April 15, 2010


Here is the full lineup for Ed Brubaker and Mike Deodato’s Secret Avengers (the one that had them blacked out to begin with).

The line up is War Machine, Beast, Valkyrie, Moon Knight, Nova and Steve Rogers. Looks like Bucky will be staying as Captain America in The Avengers proper with Thor and Iron Man. Also means Nova has stopped his cosmic wanderings to head to Earth.

Be interesting to see what kind of missions and threats they will be dealing with and the characters involved should lead to some good moments between them.

What do you think of the line up?

Which Captain America will return to the Marvel universe?

Posted by LiveFor on June 7, 2009

Recent pictures and rumours about the forthcoming Captain America #600 have included the possibility of Steve Rogers returning after his assassination a while back.

Images have included the Heroes Reborn female Bucky as shown below.

How can an alternative universe character end up in the regular Marvel universe and how could Steve Rogers return in a comic book logical way.

This memo from Reed Richards to Tony Stark could explain both.

If it is true then the Ultimate universe Steve Rogers would be a nice addition to the Marvel U.

If none of this made sense go to your local comic shop and buy The Ultimates and lots of other comics. They are good.

Cheers to the excellent Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool for the heads up.

Casting Call – Captain America

Posted by LiveFor on June 22, 2008

The recent success of Marvel Studios (Iron Man, Incredible Hulk) means that more of their characters will be heading to the silver screen culminating in an Avengers movie. The next superheroes to be kicking ass are Thor and Captain America. In the comics Cap was recently assassinated and his long thought dead partner, Bucky aka The Winter Soldier, has taken over the shield. However, for the movie they are sticking with a World War II movie with the original Captain America, Steve Rogers.
Recent rumours have said Leonardo DeCaprio is in the lead for the role of Steve Rogers. In my opinion that would be horrible. He just doesn’t have the look or, more importantly, the presence that Captain America needs.

So I open the comment boards to you dear readers. Who do you feel would make a worthy Captain America?
