These are times of inclusion and Disney knows it. Marvel, one of its most powerful brands, on Monday unveiled the first LGBTI character in the Captain America saga in its 80-year history. His name is Aaron Fischer, a punk hero with a modern look and tattoos on his neck and arms inspired by the gay community activists, leaders and ordinary guys fighting for a better life according to Joshua Trujillo, the creator of the character with that Marvel wants to celebrate LBGTI Pride month.

The comic book limited series is titled The United States of Captain America due out June 2 – and follows in the footsteps of the original Captain America, Steve Rogers, on his mission across the country to retrieve his stolen shield. Along the way, you will meet characters of all kinds who have established themselves as Captain America to defend their communities. And here comes Fischer, also known as Captain America of the railroads, a teenager who fights for the oppressed and the forgotten.

Trujillo, the author of a children’s book and contributor to Batman and Guardians of the Galaxy comics, hopes that the story connects with readers and helps inspire new generations of heroes.

It is the first time that a gay character has wandered the universe created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, conceived in 1940 as a supersoldier destined to fight the Axis powers in World War II. However, Marvel had already taken a step before integrating characters from the LGBTI community into their stories. There was even a same-sex union in 2012 when Northstar married Kyle Jinadu in an issue of the X-Men series. Iceman also revealed his homosexuality three years later in that same franchise.
