The new Captain America is black.
Marvel Comics’ chief creative officer, Joe Quesada, says superhero Sam “The Falcon” Wilson will take over as the patriotic Avenger in an upcoming installment of the long-running comic book series.
Wilson first appeared as winged superhero Falcon in 1969 and was one of comics’ first black superheroes.
The change takes effect in November in “All-New Captain America” No. 1.
White tiger cubs join Siegfried, Roy
Magicians Siegfried & Roy are welcoming three snowy white lion cubs to their Secret Garden habitat on the Las Vegas Strip.
The 14-week-old felines, born near Johannesburg, South Africa, have rare white coats and are expected to weigh 500 pounds each when they reach their full size in two to four years.
Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn discontinued their stage show after a white tiger attacked Horn during a 2003 performance, but they still maintain the Secret Garden zoo, which features white tigers and white lions.
‘Met Your Dad’ not dead at CBS
“How I Met Your Dad” may not be dead yet.
CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler said Thursday that the network wants “very much to stay in business” with the show’s creators Craig Thomas, Carter Bays and executive producer Emily Spivey.
She also said, “We’d love the opportunity to take another shot.”
“How I Met Your Dad” was a spin-off of “How I Met Your Mother,” which aired its series finale in March.
“Dad” didn’t have any connection to “Mother” except for the story format. The lead character explains to her kids the events that led her to meet their dad.
