That shocking Captain America comics twist – you know, the one where it turns out he’s evil and working for Hydra – just became even more real.
Marvel has unveiled the cover for the much-anticipated Secret Empire Issue #10, depicting Captain America in a Hydra costume.
In the picture, he stands over the heroes we all love, including Iron Man, Spider-Man and Black Panther, just to rub it in all of our faces.
We recently learned that Steve Rogers was not all he appeared to be, with Red Skull using the living Cosmic Cube Kobik to change the hero’s history into one where he was recruited into Hydra as a child in the 1920s.
Fans were naturally peeved at all this, though Marvel urged readers not to jump to conclusions before finishing the story.
“At Marvel, we want to assure all of our fans that we hear your concerns about aligning Captain America with Hydra and we politely ask you to allow the story to unfold before coming to any conclusion,” they said.
“Captain America, will always be a cornerstone of the Marvel Universe who will stand up for what is right, and ‘Secret Empire’ will be the biggest challenge Steve has ever faced.
“What you will see at the end of this journey is that his heart and soul – his core values, not his muscle or his shield – are what save the day against Hydra and will further prove that our heroes will always stand against oppression and show that good will always triumph over evil.”
