After 4 years, Marvel’s Steve Rogers to don the Captain America suit, shield again

PHILADELPHIA  — The original Cap is coming back.

Marvel Comics says that Steve Rogers, the young man who tried but failed to join the Army during World War II only to take a super-soldier serum that turned him into the agile, strong and daring Captain America, will return to the role in “Captain America” No. 1 in July.

Nearly four years ago, Rogers abandoned the costume, and the job, after he was gunned down on the steps of a courthouse and thought dead. Since then, his former sidekick, Bucky, has been sporting the shield.

But with a new film due this summer from Marvel Entertainment, the original Cap is returning to his roots in comics with the story written by Ed Brubaker and drawn by Artist Steve McNiven.
