They Did What to Captain America???

SPOILERS for Captain America #1! I repeat I am about to spoil the big reveal in Captain America #1 that has already been on the front page of Facebook, Twitter and USA Today. You ready? You, might want to sit down for this....

Captain America is an agent of Hydra. Shocking right? RIGHT? Can you at least pretend to be shocked?

Depending on what kind of nerd you are you're either completely nonplussed by this or you're filled with so much righteous anger and indignation you're quite literally tweeting your rage at former Captain America writer Ed Brubaker.

So far my absolute favorite reaction I've seen on facebook was the guy saying this was the end of Marvel. Like the end end, this was going to cause them to go out of business. Which I guess would mean Disney would have to go under too. There you are, Hydra just killed Mickey Mouse.

Now I had no intention of picking up Captain America #1, but I might now. The guy writing it Nick Spencer is a really good writer, I can't think of a single book of his that I've picked up that I didn't like. I haven't picked up Captain America in a while but this sounds like a good place to get back on the horse. Captain America has never been a really great selling title, my guess is that people with the loudest response to this stopped reading Cap a long time ago, so really their complaints are kind of irrelevant.

Of course, this is 'Murica. Complaining about something we know nothing about is kind of our thing, so I guess they have every right to do that. I do that all the time, you think I'm really going to watch the new Adam Sandler movie before I dismiss it as complete garbage?

Anyone that's too bent out of shape about this should probably remember that time they killed Superman, or Captain America, or made Spider-Man a clone, or replaced Bruce Wayne Batman with Commissioner Gordon in a robot suit. It's just comics.
