The 2017 Marvel Hidden Empire event controversial revelation that Captain America was a spy for the Nazis was widely mocked, and the studio now admits the plot was a disaster. Captain America’s role gained one of the worst fan responses for a plotline in recent years. Despite the comic’s universe consequences, the plot was scarcely mentioned in Marvel’s development.
Marvel now concedes in Iron Man 3 and Captain America that the tale was a massive disaster from the beginning. Captain America reveals himself as a secret Hydra spy in Secret Empire, and maybe most unexpectedly, he’s always been one. Captain America becomes the face of Hydra, which begins to dominate the world.
In the conclusion, the Cosmic Cube alters reality, and the true Captain America emerges to confront the Hydra-aligned Steve Rogers. It has been soundly defeated, and Marvel has done its best to put the entire incident in the rearview mirror and reintroduce the fascist-punching, self-sacrificing Captain America, Screen Rant reported.
Captain America storylines spark debates
The episode and the storylines leading up to it have sparked a lot of discussion about storytelling’s role in the comic world. The lead-up to Secret Empire suggested that the event might have something to say about the nature of American oppression, the series ended up being more of a conventional superhero adventure with little substance.
The story of Captain America’s descent into oppression has generated grief, wrath, and outrage over the course of eighteen months, and it was ultimately not worth the insult, the excuses, or the efforts.
Despite the fact that Secret Empire advertised itself as a topical story about uncontrolled power and limited accountability, most of the event was spent searching for the shattered fragments of the Cosmic Cube all across the world. It was agreed that whoever constructed the real-life plot device will decide the Marvel Universe’s fate, according to Polygon webpage.
