(NEWSER) – There's a new Captain America, and he looks more like a whole different swath of Americans.

Marvel has announced that a black hero—longtime Cap ally Sam Wilson, aka the Falcon—will be taking over his star-spangled mantle in Captain America #25, the New York Daily News reports.

Classic Cap Steve Rogers has been looking for a replacement since being aged into a 90-year-old man in the current storyline (though, as IGN points out, truly plugged-in fans will have known the outcome of that search for a while, thanks to the solicitation for Avengers#35).

Wilson will be familiar to moviegoers thanks to his appearance in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."

This follows news that Thor is now a woman.
