Captain America‘s “Secret Empire” is about to rise and the publisher has released a teaser trailer to whet your whistle as to the game-changing events that are to come. I’m pretty sure fans everywhere know that this will end with the “Secret Empire” falling and Steve Rogers likely being restored to his original self, but the fallout will be the loss of trust that Captain America will suffer going forward. The plus side is that this might just be the event which we need to bring Marvel’s heroes together once again after a second “Civil War” and so shortly after we saw the “Inhumans v X-Men” event.
You can check out the teaser trailer here which includes commentary from creators such as Nick Spencer.
From superstar creators Nick Spencer, Steve McNiven, Andrea Sorrentino, Leinil Yu and Daniel Acuña comes SECRET EMPIRE! The Marvel Universe is under siege from within. Due to the manipulations of the Red Skull, Captain America–secretly a true believer in the cause of Hydra–is finally set to enact his master plan. Yet as the dominos begin to fall, there are those who would rise to meet the challenge. Hydra’s ascension stands as a rallying cry, and Avengers, Champions, Guardians, Defenders, X-Men, Spider-Man and more must put aside their differences and come together as one: The first and last line of defense against Hydra!
“United We Stand” is a great call to arms for the comic as we have seen our heroes going to war with one another for far too long. Anyone who is sick of the division will likely be thrilled if we see our fan-favorites working together again as this event comes to a close. Hopefully, it isn’t just the event itself which will see our allies ignore their ideological differences for.
