After nearly two years of being aged into an old man and the super soldier serum drained from his system, Steve Rogers was recently restored to youth and vigor and has resumed his adventures as "Captain America" - complete with a new shield, new costume, and sharing the identity with his chosen successor and friend Sam Wilson, better known as The Falcon and now "Falcon Cap".
This week saw the release of "Captain America: Steve Rogers #1" - a new ongoing title written by Nick Spencer and artist Jesus Saiz that stars Rogers and continues his crusade as a superhero in the modern world. Aided by a supporting cast that included his love interest Sharon Carter, former sidekick Rick Jones, and of course other allies in the superhero community and S.H.I.E.L.D., it looks like everything is back to normal for Steve... That is until you read through issue #1 and find out the BIG TWIST everyone, including EW and Time, are talking about now.
SPOILER WARNING here and the big surprise coming after the jump. Don't look if you don't want to be spoiled.
Yep. "HAIL HYDRA".
And if you need an explanation as to "WHY CAP?", we'll have to wait until the next issue coming in June. For now, Cap's been turned into the most secretive Hydra agent ever. Bold move Marvel.
