Marvel is aiming for greater diversity in its big titles, hence these important changes to major characters.
Comic book fans had long-rumoured the shift from Rogers to his old ally Wilson, with the latter set to take up the founding Avenger's patriotic shield this October.
Wilson is set to star in Rick Remender's Captain America #25 with art by Carlos Pacheco. Concept art taken from the cover to All-New Captain American #1 tells fans that his costume will blend elements from his Falcon outfit with Captain America's classic style.

And now, Marvel makes Captain America black.
Yesterday it was revealed that Marvel Comics is turning The Mighty Thor into a chick. Today, Captain America becomes a Black guy.Because seeing a White man fighting evil super villains is -so- 20th Century. Their sales must be in the absolute toilet these days or they wouldn't be destroying their brand like this with desperation, sales-whoring shock tactics.
Look for Thor-ette #1 and Captain (Afro)America #1 in October, then in the fifty cent bin come January.
Next up, Iron Man is secretly gay. Or a tranny. Or a gay tranny. (Yeah, figure that one out.)
