Fresh off their recent boundary-busting collab with AlunaGeorge and Baauer, Mike WiLL Made-It proteges Rae Sremmurd have just landed their biggest breakthrough yet: a cameo on an alternate cover of All-New Captain America’s duly hyped debut issue. Duly hyped because it features the first mainstream African American superhero — Sam Wilson, a.k.a. Falcon, who was introduced back in 1969 — stepping up from a sidekick to starring role.

“One of the things we got were photos of kids holding the shield,” writer Rick Remender told CNN when asked about the initial reaction to his Captain America reboot. “We got a photo from a predominantly African-American classroom, where the kids were jumping up and down with joy with the image of Sam behind them. Culturally, that’s something that is significant. If it helps one kid feel a part of something and makes them feel that they are reflected in their heroes … that’s a wonderful byproduct that will hopefully have more positive effects than just being an exciting superhero comic.”
