Marvel Comics to Debut New Fil-Am “Captain America”





Marvel Comics revealed on Friday that a new superhero will arrive on the fourth issue of the upcoming ‘The United States of Captain America” series. This includes Filipino-American superhero Ari Agbayani, which is one of the diverse cast of heroes to debut as part of Captain America’s 80th anniversary.





Arielle “Ari” Agbayani is a local Captain America-inspired hero created by writer Alyssa Wong and Jodi Nishijima who seeks justice on her college campus. She is a scholarship student at a small, private university. When she finds out her best friend is being victimized by a wealthy legacy student, Ari is determined to make things right.

According to Wong, she immediately thought of a Fil-Am superhero when her editor approached her about creating a new, local Captain America. Nishijima is also honored to bring Ari to life. “To be able to lend my thoughts and experiences to a property and concept I greatly admire, as well as work alongside such talented and diverse creators, brings me an excitement that cannot be understated,” she added.

The fourth issue of the United States of Captain #4 will hit stores on September 22.
