The original Captain America is back! We always knew that Steve Rogers would return and now he’s got not only his super powers back…but a new #1 issue of hisvery own comic book. That almost never happens, if by never you mean every 6 months or so.
But anyway, Nick Spencer and Jesus Saiz pick up from Avengers: Stand Off with CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERS #! starting in May and kicking off with Free Comic Book Day Captain America #1 earlier in the month.
“The country is as divided as it’s ever been, and Steve is one of a kind,” says Nick Spencer, in an interview with Marvel.com. “He’s a unifying figure, someone we can all look up to, [and] someone we can all put our faith in. It’s no secret the Marvel Universe is about to enter a period of serious conflict with Civil War II looming on the horizon, and as such, it feels like the perfect moment to bring Steve back into fighting shape.”
He may be back but the celebration will be short lived. Steve isn’t the only one who’s returned stronger than ever. Hydra has re-emerged. Led by his greatest foe, the Red Skull, Hydra has begun to worm its way into every corner of the Marvel Universe. Anyone can be a threat. Trust no one. Even a restored Captain America may not be enough to stop the far reaching tentacles of Hydra.
With a rallying cry of “Avengers Assemble”, the Sentinel of Liberty charges headlong into the fight once more. But will his first day back on the job be his last? Find out when CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERS #1 explodes into comic shops and digital devices this May!
