And we have another Marvel NOW! announcement with Rick Remender and John Romita Jr. on the new Captain America.

Remender tells IFanboy that he will be going in a different direction than Ed Brubaker, and we'll also see a new villain, the Green Skull who wants to turn people into plants.

"Tonally, it’s very different...It’s a complete shift from what Ed was doing and I loved what Ed was doing, but if I were to try and emulate that or to continue that tone, it would be Ed light. It wouldn’t be the same thing. So I’m leaning in to what I like to do, which is high adventure, sci-fi, with spy fantasy, with a heavy focus on the man under the suit. It’s very character-focused conflict stuff," said Remender.

Regarding this new Green Skull:

"He is someone who believes that humanity is the cause of all problems on earth and he wants to turn humanity into soil for plants. He’s got a chemical agent that can do that."

Fun Fact: Did you know that Marvel has launched a new #1 issue of Captain America six times since November of 2007?
