J. Michael Straczynski, who created Babylon 5, will create an all-new era of Captain America.
Acclaimed writer and filmmaker J. Michael Straczynski best known for Babylon 5, is returning to Marvel Comics. This September, Captain America #1 will hit comic stores with a story by Straczynski, who has written fan-favorite stories, including Amazing Spider-Man and Thor. Now he is working with artist Jesús Saiz (Punisher, Doctor Strange) to take Steve Rogers on an exhilarating new adventure.
Decades ago, Steve Rogers changed the world forever. Now powerful and insidious forces are assembling to ensure he never does it again. Past, present, and future collide as the man out of time reckons with an existential threat determined to set the world on a darker path at any cost.
Straczynski told io9:
“Overall, the goal is to do some really challenging stories, some really fun stories, and get inside Steve’s head to see who he really is in ways that may not have been fully explored before. If folks like what I did with Peter in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and Thor in, well… THOR, then they should give this a shot because I’m really swinging for the bleachers in this one!”
