Captain America has long been considered one of, if not the most honorable of superheroes…until now. With the release of Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 today, Marvel has dropped a massive bomb, revealing that Steve Rogers has been a Hydra agent all along.
“There should be a feeling of horror or unsettledness at the idea that somebody like this can secretly be part of this organization.” Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort told Time in an interview about the shocking new twist. “There are perfectly normal people in the world who you would interact with on a professional level or personal level, and they seem like the salt of the earth but then it turns out they have some horrible secret — whether it’s that they don’t like a certain group of people or have bodies buried in their basement.”
It is clear that Marvel is looking to ruffle a few feathers with this new direction for the iconic hero. What do you think of this twist of fate? Comment below.
