If you thought Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon, had some big shoes to fill taking on the mantle of Captain America, well think again. Marvel has issued an official press release that his duties of being Captain America will also include taking over the Avengers as well. One thing at time Sam, gee. 

This sounds like a great storyline to read. A third tier character, no offense to Sam, taking on a first tier character and now leading the Avengers too? It should really mix things up in the Marvel Universe.  Fear not, Steve Rogers and the Avengers will be back by May 1st, 2015. Because that is when Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives. 

Press Release: This November, Sam Wilson takes the Mighty Avengers higher, further and bigger than ever before inCAPTAIN AMERICA & THE MIGHTY AVENGERS #1 – an all-new series launching as part of Avengers NOW! Fan-favorite Mighty Avengers scribe Al Ewing returns along with new series artist Luke Ross for a new series with a new mission spinning directly out of the upcomingAvengers & X-Men: AXIS!
Sam Wilson has inherited his new patriotic moniker, but is he up to the task of leading a team of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? The hero formerly known as Falcon has some new ideas for the rag-tag team of Mighty Avengers – but the events of AXIS may spell doom for the inexperienced leader. And not everyone on the team is happy with Sam’s new position as leader. Spider-Man is back, too – Amazing this time, NOT Superior. Luke Cage & Jessica Jones are still itching to give him some payback for trying to take their daughter to Child Services. And what is Luke Cage doing meeting with the head of the notorious Cortex corporation?
“As for the mission statement – same as it’s ever been,” promises writer Al Ewing, in an interview with “Help those in need, however they need it. This is where all the work over the previous series pays off – the Gem theater is refurbished, the hotline is in place, the field team is on standby to take care of problems nobody else can handle. The Mighty Avengers are hitting the ground running.”
All this and more in just the first issue True Believer! No fan can afford to miss this all-new beginning when CAPTAIN AMERICA & THE MIGHTY AVENGERS #1 takes off this November!

 Hmmm.... i wonder if this has to do with Chris Evans mentioning he doesnt really wanna keep playing Captain America anymore due to the extreme workouts and living style he doesnt wanna keep up with.

Makes sense quite honestly to eventually kill off Cap and have Anthony Mackie step in as 'Captain Falcon'.... just speculation on my part though.

 i always liked the falcon character, so this could be interesting for a little while. Eventhough we all know Cap will be back,
