Comic - All New Captain America 1- 2014

All New Captain America: In the series, Sam Wilson takes over the mantle of Captain America from Steve Rogers. Series editor Tom Brevoort said, “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. For most of his professional life, Sam has worked as a social worker, so he’s seen the worst of urban society up close, and how crime, poverty, lack of social structure and opportunity can affect the community.”[125]
