Captain America Spoof Preview

Who WON'T wield the shield?

Steve Rogers.  Bucky Barnes.  Sam Worthington.  Matt Damon.  There’s more than a little speculation as to who will wield Captain America’s shield, both on the page and on the screen. There’s been considerably less speculation, however, on who won’t wield it.


CAPTAIN AMERICA: WHO WON'T WIELD THE SHIELD
Writers: Matt Fraction; Brian Miguel Bendis, Jason Aaron, Stuart Moore
Art: Brendan McCarthy and others
Cover: Gerald Parel
$3.99 (coming out April 7, 2010)

Looks like a WHAT THE…?-style self-spoof in the merry Marvel marching tradition (unless you seriously expect Irvin Forbush or Wade Wilson to be throwing the star-spangled discus).  Sounds like it's going to be a fun jam one-shot with a good collection artists. Smells like... smells like...
 
Smells a bit like that old MAD Magazine board game I used to play at summer camp. Funny what a preview image will make pop in your head, but that's the first thing I thought of when I saw this. Mainly because the opposite-day approach to speculation (You wanna know who'll wield the shield? Yeah, how about how won't wield it, huh?) reminds me of how the object of that game was to lose money. Anybody else ever play it?
 
So let's pour out the gossipy grain and get the rumor mill turning, Comic Vine community. We know it isn't Deadpool.  We know it isn't Forbush.  Who else won't get the shield?

-- Tom Pinchuk is the writer of UNIMAGINABLE for Arcana Comics and HYBRID BASTARDS! for Archaia Comics.   Watch out for the HYBRID BASTARDS! hardcover collection this March - - available for pre-order now on Amazon.com

Odds are it won't be that ol' biddy Aunt May.  Still, can't rule her out completely can we?  This IS Marvel afer all.  
 OK, not intended as a low blow to Marvel, just having fun!   
Smells like indeed....

No! Why not Forbush Man and Deadpool?!
 
I hate Marvel, how dare they not consider Forbush Man and Deadpool...? How dare they?

Haha, sweet. They should have a limited series of heroes doing a weekend test drive of being Captain America. I'd love to see Hulk try and throw it without launching it into space, or Magneto just sit there for hours trying to toss it. ( I know he controls the power but you know a writer would have a field day with that.)

No matter how you twist it, it is Deadpool and Forbush-man wielding the shield in that cover. Spoiler from the Future Deadpool Team-up 842?
