Captain America is Black
No, really. I'm serious. Today, Marvel Comics is publishing the 1st issue of a comic series titled "The Truth". Now, for those of you who know your superhero history, Captain America was a blonde-haired, blue-eyed 90 lbs. weakling who volunteered to be a military guinea pig in an experiment that made him the ultimate American fighting machine. But, let's be honest: the procedure is dangerous and untested. Would they REALLY have tested it out on the Great White Hope? Or would the true guinea pigs be Black soldiers, people that a 40's America might not be too concerned about making, shall we say, "mistakes" on. Check out this preview, here what the editor, Axel Alonso, has to say about it, and, if you're so inclined, check it out at your local comic shop.
