Ahead of its July release, Marvel Comics has shared the news that a new hero will be introduced from creators Mohale Mashigo and Natacha Bustos in The United States of Captain America #2. Going by Nichelle Wright, she will be the Captain America of Harrisburg.
“The thing I can say about Nichelle is that she is working day and night to bring change into a world where she feels defeated,” Mashigo said in a statement sent to AIPT. “Nichelle is a light in a dark time and she wants to take ownership of her community and space in America.” Bustos added, “There are very few occasions when you have the opportunity to contribute to the creation of a character as genuine and powerful as Nichelle. She is undoubtedly one of the characters that I am most proud to have designed, for all that she represents and what she means for the community.”
For more on Nichelle, read the official Marvel solicitation below along with covers by Gerald Parel and Ernanda Souza.
Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson are hot on the trail of the shield thief, but their adversary remains one step ahead, and he has friends in low places. Some of Captain America’s oldest enemies are behind this scheme, but can Sam and Steve figure out who these enemies are and what they want, in time to stop them?
And in a story by Mohale Mashigo (MARVEL VOICES: LEGACY) and Natacha Bustos (MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR): Who is Nichelle Wright, the Captain America of Harrisburg? And will her community stand up for her when the shield thief frames her for a terrible crime?
