Marvel Comics will kick off Pride Month with an inclusive twist on a beloved franchise. 

The publishing company on Monday announced plans to introduce a new gay hero, Aaron Fischer. The character will be unveiled in a limited series titled “The United States of Captain America” that’s set for release in June, which happens to be LGBTQ Pride Month

The series will apparently feature the original Captain America, Steve Rogers, on a cross-country road trip to retrieve his stolen shield. Along the way, the crew will encounter “people from all walks of life who’ve taken up the mantle of Captain America to defend their communities,” which is where Aaron Fischer comes in.
