Marvel's New Captain America To Be A Black Teenage Female Immigrant From Africa? SPOILERS…

slott spoilerYesterday saw the publication of the final issue of the Ultimate Cataclysm mini-series from Marvel Comics and the end of the Ultimate Universe.

Until the relaunch in April, obviously.

But what changes are we to expect? Well, spoilers ahead, obviously. You have been warned.

Ultimate Captain America remains deceased at the end of the mini-series. And because this is the Ultimate Universe, designed to explore other ways of telling classic Marvel stories, there's no need to revive him in some tortuous IP-serving fashion.

Instead they can replace him. But with whom?

Well, the person taking his shield and bearing it at the end of the issue in question, is none other than Storm of the X-Men.

There's no Ultimate X-Men book lined up after the relaunch, so where could she end up? Joining Ultimate Avengers as the new Captain America? Even though, in the Ultimate comics from Marvel, she's a teenage immigrant from Morocco?

Looks like it's time.

She's not the only female character getting an an increase in prominence in the new Ultimate Universe, it seems. The upcoming Survive book looking at the aftermath of Cataclysm is teased at the back, putting women in the spotlight, over and above their male counterparts.


Survive by Brian Bendis and Joe Quinones is published in March.
