Marvel has been teasing a big reveal in the new Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 comic (Nick Spencer, Jesus Saiz) for a while now. They chose to reveal it and, yikes.
The issue begins with Cap fighting bad guys, with assistance from Jack Flag and Free Spirit. There's also a background story about a young man being recruited to Hydra out of desperation. (You know, because Marvel's new thing is sympathising with Nazi's aka Ward)
Then we get a skip, and focus on Steve's mother - who is rescued from abuse by a strange woman who tries to show her there is more to life, who also has a eye on Steve.
Since no other big bad teams seem to exist since the MCU started, turns out this lady is Hydra and guess what, she may have recruited Steve's mother!
Cap the throws Jack Flagg out of a plane to his death and shows that even if it turns out to be a fakeout, Marvel aint shit for having these words come out of an iconic Jewish created characters mouth
In other news, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby are turning in their graves.
I'm gonna fight tinypic smh. Should be fixed now mods!
