A controversial idea- take the Marvel universe's greatest hero and turn him into its worst nightmare. It played out in the pages of the Captain America titles before culminating in this event, in which a cosmic cube has altered the history of Steve Rogers and made him a sleeper agent for Hydra bent on world domination. Spencer brings it all to a conclusion in this sprawling event that finds Avengers and other heroes struggling with the situation and resolving things in about the only way that could be done.

An interesting event that was mired in controversy. To be fair, some of that controversy was earned. The story has such a cynical tone with only small bits of hope sprinkled in- bits that I read superhero comics for.

While intriguing, I kept asking myself, “How is this character or the Marvel Universe supposed to move past this?” And that’s why I don’t blame other creators for ignoring and not touching on events surrounding Secret Empire after the fact.
