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!

    I still remember several years ago when Captain America “died” and Marvel manipulated the news media to make a big deal out of it because apparently no one in the mainstream press bothered to do a few minutes of research and discover that Marvel does this to characters all the time, and they always come back. Marvel didn’t start it, though. In 1993 DC Comics played the media for saps with the so called “death of Superman”, but it did work. DC is so shameless about this ploy that on the Death of Superman dvd (which has some of the most odd looking animation of any of the DC dvds) the special features include interviews where they talk about how “important” the death of Superman storyline was.

    Give me a break, this is an annual occurrence. Its like a regularly scheduled bleeding done for health reasons. In this case, it’s the health of their profits.
