Shut the front door!
Have you recovered from this week’s Earth-shattering news that shocked fans all over world? For those that didn’t hear, the first issue of the new comic book series, “Captain America: Steve Rogers #1”, revealed Steve Rogers to be an undercover agent for Hydra all along.
This wasn’t something that Marvel came up with overnight. After confirming that Captain America in the comics is actually Steve Rogers and not some clone or android, Marvel executive editor Tom Brevoort revealed that this story has been in the works since 2014.
It’s been a while since an actual comic book managed to rub so many fans the wrong way. Brevoort also added that this twist “is only the tip of it”. Subsequent comic issues will provide fans with a better understanding of this new side of Steve and how he’s managed to secretly work for Hydra all these years.
Captain America himself, Chris Evans, also took to Twitter to express his surprise.

Say it ain’t so is right. His short and simple tweet was followed up by an even more appropriate response. The major outcry on the internet is just the tip of the iceberg, as fans are worried that this twist could cause some serious ramifications in the coming years.
However, it’s important to note that “Captain America: Steve Rogers” has only just debut. We’re sure Cap’s affiliation with Hydra will be clarified and justified in a way that would sit well with Marvel fans.
As it stands, “Captain America: Civil War” is currently the biggest movie of 2016.
