New York, NY—March 7th, 2016 — Exploding onto the scene in 1941 with a punch that would reverberate through history, Captain America would go on to become an icon and one of the most influential comic book characters ever created. This March, celebrate his 75th Anniversary and the legacy of what it means to be Captain America with the oversized CAPTAIN AMERICA: SAM WILSON #7 – a giant 80 page issue commemorating the past, present and future of the Sentinel of Liberty!
First, blockbuster creators Nick Spencer and Daniel Acuna bring you a cataclysmic tie-in to AVENGERS: STANDOFF! Since World War II, someone has always been there to don the red, white and blue and wield the shield. When Steve Rogers fell, his brother in arms, Bucky Barnes picked it up and carried the weight. When it was his time to rest, Sam Wilson would take up the mantle. But now, amidst the chaos and the carnage, Steve will be asked to pick up the shield once more.

Then Greg Rucka (The Punisher) and Mike Perkins (Captain America) bring you a team up in the Mighty Marvel Manner as Captain America and Black Widow join forces for a mission that requires the ultimate coordination. Finally, superstar creators Joss Whedon and John Cassaday unite for the first time since their celebrated Astonishing X-Men series to chronicle the origins of Captain America’s greatest weapon!
