Marvel`s new Captain America to be black man

New York: Marvel comics, who has announced a new Captain America, has revealed that he will now be a black man.

Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada announced on The Colbert Report that Sam Wilson, also known as The Falcon, will take over Captain America`s shield in Captain America no.21, reportedly.

Captain America writer Rick Remender told that according to him different characters across the Marvel Universe were going to respond to Wilson`s appointment in different ways, but he was not a beginner in his long history as the Falcon and he earned a reputation for integrity and honesty and backbone that most of the super hero community have a respect for.

In the comic series, the star-spangled superhero had suffered a brutal defeat at the hands of the newly minted villain Iron Nail and lost his special powers that gave him super-strength and youth last month.
