Every since Steve Rogers was de-aged the seeds for his “Secret Empire” have been growing and soon Hydra is set to start an explosive war that will unite Marvel’s superheroes! For the past couple of years we’ve seen the various faction of heroes splintered and broken from infighting, but when the most iconic hero of all turns into their greatest enemy, everyone needs to unite to bring him down. That’s right ladies and gentlemen we’re about to see the “Avengers, X-Men, Defenders, Champions, Inhumans, Spider-Man, and more” unite against one of the largest threats Earth has ever known. Nick Spencer, Steve McNiven, Andrea Sorrentino, and Leinil Yu are all at the helm on this giving us some of the greatest talents in Marvel’s writing pool to possibly create one of the greatest stories ever told.
This one is set to change everything!
We’ll have Captain America changed from The Red Skull’s manipulation as the cosmic cube that de-aged him also rewrote his entire history. Only, we’ve already seen him state that all of the memories of the man he used to be are still in there, so chances are by the bitter end of this battle Rogers will once again be the hero we love. Only, will it be too late to mend the bridges he is about to burn with Marvel’s other heroes?
According to Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso:
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 adds that:
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.
Will the heroes be able to both stop and save Captain America before he converts the world to Hydra? Will this event change everything in the Marvel Universe once again? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
‘Secret Empire’ #1 will be released this May!
