Everyone's favorite patriotic hero is celebrating a major milestone this year and will be running into a new crime-fighting friend in a new line of comics.
This month, Marvel will be honoring Captain America's 80th anniversary by releasing a series of comics introducing a new lineup of shield-slingers, starting with an openly gay hero by the name of Aaron Fisher, who is known as the "Captain America of the Railways."

The all-new hero is described as a "fearless teen who stepped up to protect fellow runaways and the unhoused."
"Aaron is inspired by heroes of the queer community: activists, leaders, and everyday folks pushing for a better life. He stands for the oppressed, and the forgotten. I hope his debut story resonates with readers and helps inspire the next generation of heroes " said writer Joshua Trujillo.
The first issue of the celebration line of comics, The United States of Captain America #1, will be released June 2, during Pride Month.
