We Have A Black Captain America, Could We Now Have A White Falcon?


As Bleeding Cool reported last night, confirming our earlier stories, the new Captain America is Sam Wilson.

And, in a joke stunt, Joe Quesada appointed Stephen Colbert as the new Falcon, with a piece created by Kris Anka.


But does it really have to stop there? Marvel have often run characters based on actors, from Tony Stark based on Errol Flynn to Nick Fury based on Samuel Jackson. Couldn't we have a new Falcon based on Stephen Colbert?

He is a man who knows his stuff after all…


Because that's what every news pundit needs – the ability to take to the sky and deliver their nuggets of opinion onto the heads of those below…

It's not the first time Stephen Colbert has been in Marvel comic books.
