Marvel Comics is about to introduce a “new” Captain America – called Natural – in the new Falcon & Winter Soldier miniseries. While Captain America is a hero of the whole world, the Natural is just a … defender / super fan, but instead of helping superheroes, he is only good at tripping them.
“In battle, no matter how good you are, there will always be a better person than you“, author Derek Landy answered Comicbook.com.”Someone will get stronger, faster, or practice more, or just be lucky. That was the origin of the Natural – the fear of a warrior that someone would always be better than himself in combat“.
The Natural’s outfit
“He wanted to be Captain America – the Natural’s idol and hero – but he falsely supported, unaware that he was affecting other heroes.“, artist Federico Vicentini said.”Bucky and Sam must do their best to show the Natural how to act like an American captain“His outfit is also inspired by the Cap, such as the black logo on his chest and the mask to show those” dark “actions.
“The Natural is Captain America’s number one fan, but he misplaced Steve Rogers’ legacy and went down a darker path – even though he didn’t realize it” – editor answered Alanna Smith. “Bucky and Sam are two important people of that legacy, so they have a hard time dealing with this very violent” hero “from the temptation of Hydra.”
The Chinese New Year edition cover was drawn by artist Ziyian Liu.
The series will be officially published on February 26 this year.
