Marvel Makes Major Changes to Thor, Captain America, & Iron Man

marvel logoMarvel plans to shake things up in The Avengers universe for three major characters: Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man.
Female Thor

Henceforth, a woman will swing the Uru hammer in the Thor series. A Nerdist article reveals that the original Asgardian God of Thunder proved “himself to be unworthy, as per the inscription on his mighty hammer Mjolnir, Thor is stripped of his godly powers and this new mystery woman will take up the charge.”

Captain America Sam Wilson With all the super soldier serum extracted from his body, Steve Rogers is in no condition to continue on as Captain America. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sam Wilson, an African-American best known as The Falcon, will pick up the shield and serve in Rogers’ place.

Tony Stark will trade in his iconic burgundy and gold suit for a silver version. According to Entertainment Weekly reports that Stark has not only developed an upgraded suit, but also “a new perspective on life” that includes great ambitions.

So far, it seems that these changes apply exclusively to the comic books. Female Thor will be introduced in Thor #1 due out in October 2014. African-American Captain America will make his debut in All-New Captain America #1 due out in November 2014. Tony Stark will show off his new gear in Superior Iron Man #1 also set for release in November 2014.
