Secret Empire #2 Review and Spoilers

Secret Empire has caused a lot of anger, going back to Steve Rogers Captain America #1, due in large part to Steve Rogers being a secret member of Hydra. People got upset with Cap being a facist, to the point they were burning copies of the Free Comic Book Day Secret Empire (that will show Marvel, burning a book (like a facist) that they got for free). Needless to say, Secret Empire #2 will turn this all on it’s ear. There are spoilers ahead. The images have been covered and you must click on them, but the accompanying text is not covered. So proceed with caution. Secret Empire #2 is in stores tomorrow.

    Am I the only person thinking of Teen Tony and the Crossing?

  2. Donato Congialdi says:

    This art is fantastic !

  3. Jesus says:

    That’s Steve Rogers abducted by aliens and now he’s back home. That’s my explanation lol.

    • Anthony says:

      Bring on the clones

    • agentpoyo says:

      That’s Steve Rogers from Remender’s story line…. I bet he never actually escaped Dimension Z….. At least the scruffy look appears just like him. That’s my theory on such limited info…. 🙂

  4. Brennan says:

    Both the names Steve and Rogers are fairly common, my money goes on strange coincidence. This is just a different Steve Rogers who happened by at the wrong time looking for directions home.
    You heard it here first folks.

  5. Shines says:

    He’s a leftover Skrull from that particular “major event that will change the Marvel Universe forever”.

  6. Edmond Villamor says:

    The last page reveal could be Ultimate Cap and the Hydra Cap is the Marvel Universe true Cap.

  7. Anthony says:

    The one thing I keep coming back to is the clothes he is wearing. Very military, and with the boot covers, makes me think time displaced Cap. The shirt is open to show no Hydra tattoo.

  8. agentpoyo says:

    Or they never really left Pleasant Hill and are all trapped inside.. the cube is still altering what they think is reality. 🙂

  9. Brian Pascoe says:

    I think it’s gonna be revealed that the entire history of the Marvel Universe has been the syphilitic fever dream of a teenage Stan Lee. Everything up to now will be null, and nothing will be canon moving forward.

  10. Graham says:

    Goddamn Im so glad I dont waste money on 99% of Marvel books. I would be furious if I was along for the ride and the answer was – cozmic cube stuff

  11. Gabriel Cruz says:

    I think he is from one of the SECRET WARS worlds.. That is why we got Madame Hydra (From Hydra World) and Mile Morales who also slipped in.. I think there are other characters who also might have slipped in but we have yet to figure it out.. 😀 shades of Secret Wars, Pleasant Hill, Clone Conspiracy, jejejejeje
