Who Is That Child Captain America Is Holding, And How Important Are They To The Marvel Universe?

This is the cover to Captain America #2, as published by Comic Book Resources. Many people will look to the fact that he is unmasked. Others to his long hair as doing a bit of a Thor impersonation.

But many will ignore that child he’s clutching the hand of. Which would be a mistake.

I understand the child will be the equivalent of the mysterious shadowy figure seen on the cover to last year’s Battle Scars, who was later revealed to be Marvel’s new Nick Fury.

Whoever that child is, they are expected to have a little more impact. Start your speculation engines… now!
