Marvel’s newest Captain America will be “Filipina American” college student “Ari Agbayani,” debuting in September in United States of America #4.

Ari Agbayani is the fourth in a series of local Captain Americas. Captain America #4  is set on the campus of the private university Agbayani attends as a scholarship student. She goes vigilane to when a friend of hers is being abused by a wealthy legacy student that the authorities won’t prosecute.


“Like the other Caps, Ari has a strong sense of justice and admires the ideals Captain America embodies,” writer Alyssa Wong says in the Marvel announcement.

“But the Captain America she’s inspired by isn’t Steve Rogers — it’s Bucky Barnes. Someone who hates bullies as much as Steve does, but is willing to use sneakier, shadier tactics to deal with them. Ari’s a vigilante, and she knows that you can’t always win by playing by the rules.”


United States of Captain America #4 is a creation of Christopher Cantwell, Alyssa Wong, Dale Eaglesham and Jodi Nishijima.
