Captain America: Sam Wilson
Talk about big shoes to fill. Sam Wilson started out as the superhero Falcon, but when Steve Rogers, the original Captain America, is depowered, he choose Sam Wilson to take up the mantle. Wilson accepts, and things immediately get complicated. The first couple issues have his approval ratings plummeting as he feuds with the original Cap, defends a hacker responsible for dumping some classified files online, and attacks a group that’s kidnapping undocumented immigrants. So yeah, this comic looks at a bunch of controversial issues and not only jumps right in, it has the new Captain America take a side without villainizing the people who disagree with him. Plus, it’s always great when a comic take risks that pay off.
