Marvel announced via Comicbook.com yet another new title debuting in July during Secret Wars. Ian, the adopted son of Captain America, will be starring in Secret Wars: Hail Hydra. The book written by Rick Remender and drawn by Roland Boschi will see the character transplanted from the 616 to Battleworld in a “fish out of water” scenario. He’ll face the dangers of a world run by Hydra.
Remender was coy when asked if current Captain America Sam Wilson would be making an appearance in the book, but did say fans would see characters from All-New Captain America alongside Hydra-fied versions of Marvel favorites. All this in a patch of Battleworld where Hydra has usurped the American ideal.
Remender also teased a little bit about what he’s doing post Secret Wars, “I’m working on the big post-Secret Wars project right now, and it allows me to give readers a very clear and true starting point with a beloved franchise. It enables me to pick and choose what I think are the most integral and exciting aspects of that property. Coming out of the other end of Secret Wars, I’ll have the opportunity to do things in a much cleaner fashion.”
No word on how long Hail Hydra will run.
