Marvel Comics has issues a public plea asking for patience with their Secret Empire event that has turned Captain America into a Hydra Leader; effectively a leader in Marvel’s Nazi equivalent.
Marvel Comics and Secret Empire spoilers follow.
Here is Marvel’s statement that seems to spoil the end of Secret Empire #9.
“With Marvel Comics’ Secret Empire, the forces of Hydra have taken over and, due to the villainous actions of the Red Skull, have manipulated Marvel’s greatest hero, Captain America, and forced him to adopt their cause. 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. Your passion for the Marvel Universe is what keeps us going every day. We want to keep providing our fans with exciting adventures and presenting characters with dimension.”
“Steve Rogers, a.k.a. 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.“
So, Captain America will realize Hydra is evil by end of the mini-series as Marvel heads into Generations and Marvel Legacy? Can the murders he ordered be forgiven or erased by the sentient Cosmic Cube Kobik?
The Secret Empire event so far:
