Captain America has been one of the most revered, principled and loved superhero of all times across the comic-book universe until he turned. Shockingly, Captain America was suggested to be a mole or traitor in the new Marvel comics titled Captain America: Steve Rogers # 1 created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby who brought the character to life 75 years ago. He is shown to be a sleeping member of Hydra. Elisa Sinclair, who spends her time helping the poor of New York, rescued the young Steve Rogers from his abusive father. Elisa is shown as a member the HYDRA Society in the 1920s, and she insists Steve Rogers and his mother join HYDRA as well.
Steve Rogers got Mariah Hill fired from her position and chose Sharon Carter for the World Council to oversee military and covert operations at the. She now enjoys greater powers owing to the S.H.I.E.L.D Act including dragnet surveillance, wire-tapping etc. He himself became the Director of the World Council but his lust for power didn’t end here. He killed the head of H.Y.D.R.A Red Skull and took control of entire H.Y.D.R.A as well. He literally became an evil god.
Further, Cap is seen wearing a suit akin to H.Y.D.R.A. high-ranking officer Kraken.
Well, there is no way that the writers can restore the patriotism of Captain America through a magic wand, his sins can’t be redeemed just like that. But do you really think Marvel comics will let Steve Rogers fall off the cliff and betray the faith of millions of Americans. I don’t think so. So how will things go to normal? There is a strong speculation that Marvel will pull off a “dopple-ganger” trick and then the ‘new’ Steve Rogers will be brought from Marvel Ultimate Universe. He is a leader of the “Ultimates” who could be a mystical remnant of cosmic cube’s altering Marvel history. He is the “real Steve Rogers” who will bring down the evil imposter.
Here’s the brief synopsis of the upcoming issue:
“As Hydra’s tentacles tighten around the world, can they maintain control against the combined teams of the Avengers, Champions, Defenders, Inhumans, X-Men, and more? Or will the heroes of the Marvel Universe ultimately succumb to the power of one of their most trusted allies?”
