Isaiah Bradley: Original Black Captain America explains Falcon and the Winter Soldier
The second episode of THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER featured Marvel Comics’ Isaiah Bradley. Here’s everything you need to know about the first Black Captain America from Marvel Comics.
Although Steve Rogers asked Sam Wilson to take over as Captain America, he wasn’t the first African-American to do so in Marvel Comics. Now, in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Carl Lumbly’s Isaiah Bradley, a super soldier from the 1950s, has joined the cast.
In the second episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Sam and Bucky traveled to Baltimore, Maryland to meet Isaiah.
When Steve Rogers was on ice, HYDRA dreaded the elderly guy the most, according to The White Wolf.
Bucky and Isaiah fought in 1951, with the latter breaking his robotic limb before being sentenced to 30 years in prison.
He described how he was subjected to testing and how his blood was taken while he was in his cell.
Bucky was asked why he never alerted Sam or Captain America that there was another super soldier, and the White Wolf replied that Isaiah had had enough.
Fans had been anticipating Isaiah’s arrival in the MCU after Lumbly’s visage appeared in the end credits of the first episode, referred to as Subject #07656.
Isaiah initially appeared in Marvel Comics in 2003’s Truth: Red, White, and Black, according to Screen Rant.
The plot revolved around the US military’s attempt to reproduce the Super-Soldier Serum used on Steve Rogers, which had previously gone untold.
The army had compelled 300 Black servicemen to be experimented on, according to the comics.
The US government had informed these soldiers’ families that they had died in war, with the majority of them dying during the testing process.
Following his survival, Isaiah assumed the role of the first Black Captain America for his final mission.
The army, however, had not anticipated this and placed Isaiah in jail for stealing Captain America’s costume and shield, which appears to have occurred to him in the MCU as well.
In the comics, Isaiah was imprisoned for 17 years before being pardoned and sworn to secret.
Isaiah is visibly affected by the injustice of what happened to him in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
Sam, on the other hand, is hesitant to take up Cap’s shield, which is now in his possession. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
