SPOILER WARNING: Marvel Secret Empire spoilers below!
If you've been wondering whether there could be any redemption for the twisted version of Captain America – Hydra Cap – in the aftermath of Secret Empire, Marvel’s summer event series, then look no further.
CBR.com has got a sneak peak of Secret Empire: Omega #1 – on sale next Wednesday, Sept. 13 – which reveals the fate of Hydra Supreme Steve Rogers, the Hydra sleeper agent who failed in his quest to destroy the world while posing as Cap.
You may recall that the original Steve Rogers was brought back through the Cosmic Cube in Secret Empire #10, and with Rogers and Hydra Cap co-existing, it means that there are now essentially two Caps floating about the Marvel Universe.
The preview shows an incredibly tense and eerie build-up to the pair of Steves coming face to face. In it, Rogers is seen perusing the secure facility, which claims to hold only one prisoner ... himself.
As he walks toward what appears to be an impenetrable steel door, we suddenly realize that on the other side is another version of Rogers, the villainous Hydra Cap. It appears that writer Nick Spencer has set up some more exciting storytelling here in (presumably) keeping Hydra Cap alive. For the time being, at least.
