I am on a quest to find a copy of Truth: Red, White and Black for my collection and I am hoping I can find one at the comic convention I go to since I am dying to read it. But from the Wikis (and a little creative license) I was able to cobble together this build of Isaiah Bradley, the Black Captain America.
For those that don’t know, the story goes like this. As everyone knows, Dr. Erskine was killed after the success of the Super Soldier Serum on Steve Rogers. And everyone knows that ever since, people all over the world have been trying to recreate it. One of the attempts occurred in the early 1940’s where 300 black soldiers from Mississippi were experimented on with the variants of the serum. Isaiah was the only subject to survive the process. He was sent on a mission to Germany, completed it and his reward was that he was then court martialed and incarcerated from 1943 to 1960. During this time, the serum and neglect caused his mind to revert back to that of a small child. However, his legend slowly began to get out and he became a hero within the black community, but still fairly unknown outside of it. Prior to his incarceration, some of his DNA was taken and Josiah X, another super soldier, was born from it. And his daughter gave birth to Eli Bradley, now known as Patriot of the Young Avengers. Eli actually got his super soldier powers from a blood transfusion from his grandfather.
In the Marvel U, his story pretty much ends there. But not in the Thorpacoverse. After getting access to several sealed government records during his work with the government sponsored Justice Society Initiative, Michael Holt, Mr. Terrific, found out about what happened to Isaiah and was disgusted with how he was treated. With Isaiah’s wife Faith’s permission, he started working on a way to restore Isaiah’s mind. After hitting a wall, Henry McCoy jumped in and between the two of them, they came up with a series of injections that corrected the flaws in the SSS and now Isaiah has come back to the world. After a spectacular debut by saving Steve Rogers from certain death in a battle with the Red Skull, he is now part of the modern superhero community of Earth-217. President Obama made sure his records were completely wiped clean, gave him the Congressional Medal of Honor and Steve Rogers asked him to become a field leader for an Avengers team, which he agree to. However, his greatest joys have been spending time with the love of life again while he still has time as Faith is at an advanced age, of course, and is having health issues. And slightly behind that has been fighting side by side with his son and grandson.
As a build, I pretty made Isaiah exactly like the Steve Rogers (based off the Ultimate Cap) in my setting ability-wise but he’s not nearly as skilled overall. He’s a melee fighter with a couple of guns for usage in a pinch since I don’t think that shield is meant for slinging.
