One of the most exciting things about Marvel’s 2019 plans is the relaunch of Marvel Comics Presents, the classic anthology series that pairs the selling power of Wolverine with the chance to tell stories that don’t fit into an ongoing series or standalone mini. Oftentimes, those stories get policital, as we’ve covered past tales where Namor gets political about pollution, Spider-Man takes a fall for animal rights, Marvel mocks a beloved Republican president, and Union Jack resists Margeret Thatcher’s England.
It looks like the relaunched series will be following in that tradition as Andrew Aydin, the co-author of the acclaimed and Eisner-winning graphic novel trilogy March with Congressman John Lewis and artist Nate Powell will be spinning a yard about Captain America set during the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s.
It seems that all of the stories in this issue take place during the 60s, part of Marvel’s Decades promotion, which should be interesting considering Marvel Time has made it so that the original Marvel Universe stories took place sometime in the early aughts.
