Marvel Comics Legacy & Secret Empire Spoilers: Secret Empire #8 Has A BIG Return, Captain America Sam Wilson Marshals Heroes Against Steve Rogers & Hydra Heading Into Secret Empire #9!

Marvel Comics Legacy and Secret Empire Spoilers for Secret Empire #8 follows.

Marvel advises you that you should read Captain America #25 first before reading Secret Empire #8 and Secret Empire #9. Lucky for you I have all the details from Captain America, spoilers and all, here.

Anyhow, Secret Empire #8 opens with the usual summary catch-up page plus…

…a dramatis personae.

With Steve Rogers, Captain America, siding with the Nazi Fascists know as Hydra, Sam Wilson who is also Captain America marshals the troops…

…inspiring his fellow heroes / heroines and the public.

During his address he explains that Steve Rogers, Captain America, has been manipulated by a Cosmic Cube and Sam Wilson need help finding the fragments of the Cosmic Cube that Hydra doesn’t have to end the threat of the not so Secret Empire.

At the same time, Marvel’s space-faring heroes / heroines continue to try to break through the shield around Earth and…

…they are unsuccessful until…

…a healed Quasar returns the fray!

With her help, they finally shatter the shield and…

…join the battle against Captain America, Steve Rogers, and Hydra.

Everyone continues to ne inspired by the selflessness and super-heroism of Sam Wilson, Captain America, who has found a piece of the cosmic cube and…

…leads an attack on Hydra!

In the Vanishing Point, the other Steve Rogers survive his near drowning with the Red Skull…

…he sees the female apparation and believes its…

…Sharon Carter who disappears as…

…Kobik the sentient Cosmic Cube appears!

The book’s big ending involves Namor’s secret weapon against Steve Rogers…

…Bucky Barnes, the Winter Soldier who…

…makes the cover of Secret Empire #9.

How did this all happen? Well, Marvel is right. Captain America #25 (here.”>spoilers here) reveals all.

So…

Very nice to see Sam Wilson pick up where Steve Rogers would have left off. From this…

…to this…

The Winter Soldier reveal as well as Kobik’s were both expected, but well executed. I hope we’ll see the Thunderbolts too as Secret Empire closes out. Solid art by Daniel Acuna et all plus dense storytelling by Nick Spenser which was entertaining and inspirational at many points and at some other points confusing. 7 out of 10.
