After decades of upholding the truths of freedom and justice, Captain America is getting a promotion of sorts.

In the newest Marvel Comics issue of "The Ultimates" due out Wednesday, Captain America will win the election for the oval office. Steve Rogers, the man behind the shield, will become President of the United States after being a write-in on the ballet giving the American people of the Marvel universe the leader they need.

"Cap is answering the call of the people," said Marvel writer Sam Humphries about the Captain's new job.  "This is not the first time he's stood up for an America in crisis. This is a further evolution in his role as America's defender, from soldier to superhero to president." 

A lot can be said about the costumed crusader Captain America who started work fighting Nazi soldiers in the 1940's. With his famous shield and patriotic costume he's fought public enemies, super foes and social issues throughout the decades.

The comic book character has seen a major resurgence from being transitioned into the movies with "Captain America: The First Avenger" and his role in "The Avengers". A sequel is in production titled "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" due out in April 2014 through Disney and Marvel studios.

The storyline in "The Ultimates" revolves around a world caught in turmoil and Captain America as the one with the power for change.

"He didn't ask for this position, but if it helps him reunite America, then he'll take on the job," said Humphries. "Cap has been elected to do a job, and he's going to do whatever it takes to reunite America. This will result in a unique and thrilling presidency we've never seen before, in history or in fiction."
