After a TV reveal on "The View" introduced the new identity — and new gender — of the Marvel superhero Thor, as we reported previously, Marvel picked Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" to unveil the new identity of another superhero, Captain America.
Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada appeared Wednesday on “Colbert” to make the unveiling, TheWrap.com reports.
