Marvel's new comic book titled Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 introduced a shocking twist for America's beloved superhero. Turns out Steve Rogers has been a secret Hydra Agent all these years. The twist has created a big stir, as actor Chris Evans, who plays the character on Marvel movies, took to Twitter to share his response.
He wrote: " Hydra?!?!? #sayitaintso"
In the final pages of the comics, Rogers pushed a fellow hero out of a plane to his death and said "Hail Hydra," the tagline of the longtime Marvel Comics terrorist group Hydra. Fans are obviously not happy with the twist that Captain supports the Nazi organization, Hydra.
Marvel executive editor Tom Brevoort spoke to Time Magazine about the big Hydra reveal and explained how it all fits together. He shared, "Nick Spencer, who is the writer of the series, pitched us the story as part and parcel of restoring Steve to his youth and vigor. In the comics, he's been old for a while."
"The super soldier serum that was keeping him young had been broken down, so for the 75th anniversary, Nick had this notion that we were going to restore him. But then we went into this other story about Hydra, and this is only the tip of the iceberg," he added.
When asked how this Hydra twist will affect Marvel universe, Brevoort said: "It means on the most fundamental level that the most trusted hero in the Marvel universe is now secretly a deep-cover Hydra operative, a fact that's really only known to the readers and to him. That makes every interaction he has with anyone take on a second layer, a second meaning."
