Some of you may remember that after Marvel last big event, Secret Wars, the Marvel Universe had been changed, while some characters were entirely changed. When Steve Rogers returned behind the shield, he was different. He was a Hydra agent. Of course, that sent Marvel and Captain America fans into a tizzy. It seems that the plans he had for the restoration of Hydra are about to come to fruition.
Starting on May 3rd, Marvel Comics will release the event, Secret Empire. Nick Spencer, Steve McNiven, Andrea Sorrentino and Leinil Yu will have the entire Marvel Universe go up against Captain America. Avengers, X-Men, Defenders, Champions, Inhumans, Spider-Man, and more will be forced to put aside their differences and go up against their long-time ally.
Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso said: “Secret Empire is the rallying cry for all the heroes–Avengers, Guardians, Defenders, X-Men, Spider-Man, Deadpool–to put aside their differences and unify in the defense of the Marvel Universe.”
SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort said: “Our heroes will be tested both physically and morally against one of the most trusted heroes of all time and that’s the aspect of this story our characters face and what forces them to come together.”
