'Black Panther' Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates To Takeover 'Captain America'

Coates, a national correspondent for The Atlantic and author of several books, including the National Book Award-winning "Between the World and Me", has authored Marvel Comics' "Black Panther" series since 2016. Slate reports that the latest adaptation of the superhero's tale will be available on Independence Day.

Coates who is known for his critique of Whiteness went on to state: "Captain America, the embodiment of a kind of Lincolnesque optimism, poses a direct question for me: Why would anyone believe in The Dream?"

One thing that we can probably infer is that Captain America's stint in a near post-apocalyptic future storyline won't extend past the current series with Mark Waid and Chris Samnee.

Coates dived into the Marcel comic book universe with a Black Panther series entitled, A Nation Under Our Feet. But he's also drawn to writing the character because he sees it as an opportunity to filter his own opinions on the world through someone else's perspective.

"Coates explained his decision to write the new series in a piece for The Atlantic, admitting it is a daunting task to take on the voice of America's most patriotic superhero, but that he wants to explore a new way of thinking and "[avoid] the repetition of a voice I've exhausted of".

"There has always been a complaint among black comic creators that they are restricted to black characters", Coates wrote.

Author Ta-Nehisi Coates is turning a page in his career by becoming the new author of Captain America. "What is exciting is the possibility of exploration". According to Coates, Leinil Yu is now set as the series's full-time artist, and Alex Ross will provide the series's covers. As both Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War have shown, he's one of the first to chafe against abuses of power. Alex Ross will provide covers.

Coates has been writing King T'Challa's adventures for two years and 20-plus issues now (and had been outspoken about his love of comic books before that).

Coates said that after all of that, he is ready for his next challenge: "For two years I've lived in the world of Wakanda, writing the title Black Panther", Coates mused.
