Captain America Is Marvel’s New Vampire Hunter

Marvel’s newest job for Captain America is way darker than his common position as chief of the Avengers, with a crew of vampires changing his typical superhero comrades.

Written by Tim Seeley and drawn by Sid Kotian, Captain America: Unforgiven #1 is the ultimate chapter in a collection of one-shots centered on the Forgiven vampire squad, and particulars for the difficulty have been revealed by the April 2023 solicitations for Marvel Comics. Composed primarily of bloodsuckers keen to battle on the aspect of excellent relatively than evil, the Forgiven’s ranks seem to have misplaced their heroic means within the difficulty, and it is as much as Cap to straighten them out earlier than they “give in to their darker natures.”


Captain America: Unforgiven #1 goes on sale following the discharge of the prior points Spider-Man: Unforgiven #1 and X-Men: Unforgiven #1, each of that are set to launch in March, with Spider-Man kicking off the three-part vampire saga on March 1. The solicitation for the Captain America one-shot reads, “The Forgiven have lost their way — defeat after defeat has made them bitter and bloodthirsty…and they’re starting to like it! Can Captain America bring them back into the light? Or will they give in to their darker natures?”

“I love Marvel superheroes, no doubt, but I’ve got a special obsession with Marvel’s horror heroes,” stated Unforgiven author Tim Seeley, again when the saga was first introduced in late August 2022. “Unforgiven gives that creepy, sexy, weird underbelly a chance to shine as a horrific conspiracy unites a crew of vampires with Spider-Man, the X-Men and Captain America, and shows us the stark differences (and surprisingly similarities) of those who are gifted with the ability to fight evil, and those who have to carry evil’s curse.” In an unique interview with CBR, Seeley mentioned Cap’s position within the story, and the way the Forgiven’s chief, Raizo Kodo, “sees [Captain America] as a guy who’s sort of like [the Forgiven]. He’s not one of them, but he insists on being there.”
