WARNING: Spoilers ahead for today's issue of Steve Rogers: Captain America from Marvel Comics.
In the movies, Steve Rogers has spent more or less his whole life fighting off Hydra -- until Captain America: Civil War, when he decided to turn on the government and battle his fellow superheroes in order to protect his best friend.
In the comics this week, we're introduced to a very different take on the character.
In recent months, Steve Rogers' body had been drained of the Super-Soldier Serum, leaving him old and weak. Now, he's back in action, young, and fit...and on the last page of today's issue, it's revealed that he's working with Hydra.
Through flashbacks, it's implied that Cap has been working with Hydra since he was a child and they helped protect his mother.
The pages leaked early -- Marvel allowed retailers celebrating midnight openings for DC Universe: Rebirth #1 to sell copies of Steve Rogers: Captain America first thing as well -- and disbelieving fans pretty much immediately deduced that this was a result of some kind of brainwashing or psychic manipulation, likely by the Red Skull who not long ago had the power of Onslaught and claimed to have "set something in motion" with Steve.
Either way, the final pages of this week's issue have set some pretty big stuff in motion for Nick Spencer and Jesus Saiz's first arc, including the death of a superhero at the hands of Captain America.
