Marvel Comics Legacy and Secret Empire Spoilers follow.
With Secret Empire #8 we finally saw the unmasking of the Secret Empire #9 cover. It was originally this.
However, the final cover is this one as revealed 15 hours ago leaked by a reader on 4chan. You can see the Hydra symbol has crumbled and Captain America’s shield has been resurrected, reborn and redeemed?! Here is a higher resolution version of the final Secret Empire #9 cover that started circulating yesterday.
The reveal that the Winter Soldier, formerly Bucky Barnes aka Bucky, plays a role in the end of Secret Empire #8 plus plays a bigger role in Secret Empire #9 is not a surprise since he’s Captain America, Steve Rogers’, former sidekick and confidante. The reveal will garner the same meh response from readers who continue to be miffed at Captain America not only joining Hydra in Secret Empire, but leading Hydra as well and all the criminality that evokes.
As you know, this is now the final cover Secret Empire #9 cover for Marvel’s 13-part, not 10-part, Secret Empire core mini-series event.
All 13 covers are below rendered by the amazing Mark Brooks.

We’re now in the home stretch.
