Marvel Comics unveiled its first gay Captain America character this week — and is set to debut the role in June during Pride Month, a report said.

The character, Aaron Fischer, will be included in the upcoming United States of Captain America comic book miniseries, Entertainment Weekly reported.

In the storyline, Fischer, who protects homeless youths and runaways, is discovered when Steve Rogers and three other characters embark on a mission to locate Steve’s missing shield, the report said.

“Aaron is inspired by heroes of the queer community: activists, leaders, and everyday folks pushing for a better life,” creator Aaron Trujillo told the outlet.

“He stands for the oppressed, and the forgotten. I hope his debut story resonates with readers, and helps inspire the next generation of heroes,” Trujillo said.
