Captain America Elected President Of The United States of America!

Marvel sent out this Press Release and boy it’s a biggie! Scroll through the preview pages below!

Historic Story Begins in Ultimate Comics Ultimates #15, On-Sale Tomorrow

New York. NY—September 18, 2012—The people have spoken—and tomorrow Steve Rogers, the man known as Captain America, becomes President Elect of the United States of America! In Ultimate Comics Ultimates #15, from rising star writer Sam Humphries and fan-favorite artist Billy Tan, Captain America’s made his dramatic return and publically saved America from an insidious new enemy in one of his most harrowing battles yet. But when all the dust settles, Steve Rogers is about to get the biggest surprise of his life—he’s won the special election for the Presidency via write-in! What does this mean for his future as Captain America? Can he be a President who fights on the frontlines? You’ll find out when this landmark issue hits comic stores, the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPad Touch® & Android devices) and the Marvel Digital Comics Shop tomorrow!

“This is one of those stories that could only be told in the Ultimate Comics Universe, where the only rule is simple—there are no rules.” said Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief, Marvel Entertainment. “We’ve seen Captain America fight wars and battle super villains, but running a country is a whole new challenge—but don’t worry, this isn’t about political speeches and closed door meetings. This is exactly the kind of high-octane, super powered thrill ride you’d expect from a book called The Ultimates!”

Then next week, in Ultimate Comics Ultimates #16, Humphries and artist Luke Ross, Steve Rogers accepts the position of President of The United States- and not a moment too soon! A deadly villain with a personal tie to the Ultimates is about to enact his endgame, one which promises to leave no hero unscathed. Now Captain America must find a way to safeguard this country both as a President and as a super hero—but can he do both?

“Captain America was created in 1941, but this is the first time he’s been made Commander in Chief. It’s an honor to write a landmark milestone for such an iconic character,” explained Humphries. “We’ve made a commitment in Ultimates to show how epic events have significant consequences. President Cap is no different. This will have a lasting impact on Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and the whole team.”

With its inception in 2000, the Ultimate Comics Universe reimagined the world’s most popular super heroes for a new generation and has been critically lauded for its bold, resonant stories. In particular, the reinterpretation of Captain America in Ultimates Vol.1 is considered a watershed moment for the character and remains one of Marvel’s top-selling collections. With the August 2011 introduction of Miles Morales, an African American and Hispanic character who became the new Spider-Man, the Ultimate Comics Universe again became a hot topic among media and comic fans alike. Now, acclaimed-creators Humphries and Tan begin the next major chapter in Ultimate Comics Universe history with the release of Ultimate Comics Ultimates #15, giving readers a chance to see what happens when the Earth’s mightiest hero takes charge of the world’s greatest nation.

The biggest decision of Captain America’s life is coming tomorrow in Ultimate Comics Ultimates #15, the game-changing issue that fans can purchase at their local comic book store, on the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPad Touch® & Android devices) and in the Marvel Digital Comics Shop.

With the recent death of Pa Kent, Superman is going through some serious changes, changes in status quo that begin in this week’s release of DC’s flagship title…….

superman685.gif

Superman # 685  DC is telling everyone that this issue is a direct lead in to a major status quo change in the life of Superman. Let’s just hope that this issue brings more to the table than the recent ‘death of Batman’ did. DC seems to be at a crossroads in the sense they know changes need to be made as far as their major characters go. Green Lantern has been spot on, recent Wonder Woman sales have been very nice and Batman was a miss. Let’s hope 3 out of 4 here with Superman up next.

Incredible Hercules # 126  Looks like we’ll be getting an origin issue here. Marvel claims (hard to believe really!) that this will be the first time in Marvel continuity that Hercules origin will be told. Sounds like a keeper here folks!

Sonic Universe #1  When Sonic The Hedge Hog #1 came out years ago, many fans saw it as just another video game character getting his own comic. That comic now commands a few dollars. This week a new number 1 issue comes out that brings a whole new spin and a new universe for Sonic fans. Besides, a Sonic movie isn’t too far behind is it?
