My Life So Far...
Sam Wilson: From Falcon to Captain America

In a special segment of Colbert Report last night, MARVEL announced that Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon will be taking Steve Rogers’ place as Captain America!  

imageIn the recent events of the current Captain America series, Steve Rogers has been drained of his Super-Soldier serum during his fight with the Iron Nail.  Now, he’s a de-powered old man in his nineties.  So, Sam Wilson, Cap’s longest ally will be wielding the shield later this Fall!

I already knew that Falcon will become Captain America when I saw the cover of Avengers #35 that is set to come out on September 9th this year.  I noticed someone between an axe-wielding Thor and Old Steve Rogers wearing a mask similar to Falcon’s and holding Cap’s shield.  It’s interesting so see that someone else will take on Steve Rogers’ mantle as Captain America!  The last person who wielded the shield was Bucky Barnes after the events from Civil War but decided to give Steve back the mantle after the events of Fear Itself.  Now knowing that an African American superhero will become Captain America, I’m excited to see how it will play out. Series editor Tom Brevoort says, “While Sam shares many of Steve’s beliefs in a general sense, he’s also a very different person with a very different background. He didn’t grow up in the 1930s, he’s a modern-day man in touch with the problems of the 21st Century.”  I have to agree with this.  It’s time for the world to have a Captain America for this era!

First, the news of a Female Thor and now an African American Captain America!  This is great news!  Sam Wilson will make his first debut as Captain America in Captain America #25 coming out in October and he will his own ongoing series, All-New Captain America that is set to be released in November.  I’m interested in reading the new Thor and Captain America series this Fall!  I hope that Steve Rogers gets his powers back but I want to see Sam Wilson carry out his beliefs as Captain America!

On The View, Marvel Comics debuted a piece of art of an upcoming project for the Fall, a female Thor!

According to Jenny McCarthy, the new Thor is a character who was saved by her predecessor, the Male and current Thor and somehow becomes his successor.  I believe the events from Original Sin will see to introduction of the new God of Thunder.  The female Thor will make her appearance in Thor #1 in October 2014!  I’m interested in reading about the new female Thor this fall!  It might be the second Superheroine Marvel comics I will be reading this year.  The current superheroine Marvel comic I’m reading is Captain Marvel written by Kelly Sue DeConnick.

A lot of interesting turns of events is happening in Marvel Comics.  First, a new Captain America will make his appearance in October, and now, a God of Thunder who is a woman.  What’s next?  A new successor for Iron Man?  MARVEL is bringing so many changes and I’m excited to see how they will play out!

In honor of the relaunch of Kelly Sue Deconnick’s Captain Marvel series this week, I’m giving away 3 different aluminum cuff bracelets! Pictured are prototypes of two of the three, "punch holes in the sky" and nos dinosauros icimus with an airplane and dinosaur charm, respectively, and a teensy “Carol Corps” on the inside. The third cuff will be the “official” House Danvers motto—voting is still open here until the end of Friday 7 March. These cuffs are pure food-grade aluminum, which has a very low rate of skin reaction, and the charms are lead- and nickel-free. (You can see my other items at my etsy shop. Hand-stamped cuffs will be popping up there very soon!)

To enter, simply like and/or reblog this post. That’s it! I’m willing to send the bracelets pretty much anywhere in the world since they are quite light (aluminum, yo!), so if you’re outside the US go ahead and enter! I’ll pick three random entries (via RNG) on Wednesday ~6pm CST, and send the winners an ask, so your askbox must be open.

And be sure to buy the comic at your LCS (check out haterfreewednesdays for safe spaces!), online, or digitally on Wednesday 12 March!

The third cuff will say “We are the stars!”

Oops I forgot to boost this earlier today, so here’s your daily reminder that I’m GIVING AWAY FREE SHIT!!!

And if you don’t want to chance not getting an awesome Carol Corps bracelet, I’m also selling them for $10—with free US shipping if you buy 2 with the code “CAROLCORPS20”!
