Captain America - Steve Rogers 014 (2017)
No comment really. Just pausing to process. Generally (STILL) unimpressed with how this Kobik reality is playing out. Although, the new HYDRA Council recruitment (EXPEDIENTLY) ended up with an intrigiuing collection of supervillains. And that cover is excellent. Quite the Quasar/Avril showing
too. But in the spirit of keeping the monthly secret Empire threads going - here's some interesting fourchan 0-Day notes by others that some here might see something they missed...

Hydra finally learned how to make a proper table.
Also, looks like Otto isn't invited to sit with the big boys.

My guess is Nick Fury's brother again.
But Steve saw through his disguise from the start and is just waiting to get his revenge on him for killing the original.

He has been in charge of a faction since Secret Warriors ended I think.

Millar's Gorgon was a Gary Stu, but Hickman and others made him more interesting.

And that's that for storytime, hope you enjoyed.
Next time: Captain Hydra vs. The Red Skull
The Uncanny Avengers do all the work and then Steve gets all the credit.

Of course, isn't Ock just one of Armin's lieutenants? But given Otto's personality, I wouldn't be surprised if he gets pissed and tries to take a seat for himself, or betray everyone and team up with Cap to bring them down so he'll be one of the top dogs.

Ian Zola or Jake Munroe were my first thought but the 'you are family' and vagueness of who Elisa means with 'he believes you dead' are making me wonder if it might be someone related to Daniel or Helmut. Spencer has read Born Better, surely he remembers Volker.

Probably Ian Zola due to reality warping.

I'm lost here. The deus ex machina girl changed everything in Steve mind to please the Skull, but now, in this small simulated reality in Cap head, everything backfires him? EVEN BEFORE that his actions could actually put him at odds with Steve Rogers?

The cosmic awareness was starting to drive Wendell crazy from overuse so to avoid becoming the next Genis-Vell, he stopped being Quasar. He gave Avril the quantum bands and is training her how to use them.

These power levels are totally going to be tossed as soon as the fighting starts, right?

Somebody answer this guy, why would Kobik make Steve think this? I figured his hate for Red Skull was a symptom of his unrealistically idyllic idea of Hydra clashing with the reality of Red Skull's regime

So, can someone explain all the leaps between Secret Warriors and this? Also, didn't Gorgon get btfo by the Avengers after Norman busted out of jail?

Yes, and Bendis shat all over the character by literally turning him into Wolverine and have him job.
He showed up later in Avengers World, which was also written by Spencer come to think of it.

Didn't the Hive get kerboomed? Didn't Viper get decapitated or have her head sniped to pulp?
Anonymous 03/22/17(Wed)15:10:27 No.90949131
Hive got kerboomed, yes. This issue is his first appearance since then. I guess the implication is that since he's a hive of octopus things he can't really die, and he spent all this time regenerating.
Viper was indeed sniped, but then Hive brought her back by attaching an octopus thing to her head. After Secret Warriors, AIM removed it.

That still counts as saving the day.
Plus, Spencer and Bendis love Maria Hill, she'll get her job back with a smug "I told you so" smile.

It's because Captain America has a tremendous reputation. He's Captain America, man.
If Captain America went "I realize I can't give you a reason, but I need the five of you to abandon your guard posts and follow me." most soldiers would do it. If Captain America asked you to fight against seemingly impossible odds, then told you he'd be right back, YOU'D BELIEVE HIM.
Like, I don't think the writers know the harm that this is doing to Cap's character. How could ANYONE trust him again after this? Can you imagine how horrifying the whole concept it? Now and again, you have someone who goes "I fought alongside Cap during the war. He's the greatest hero who ever lived."
And now, after these revelations, it'd be like "What, Captain America was helping the Nazis? Holy shit, he was doing it ALL THIS TIME? How did we NOT know? Oh my God, what else did he do?"

I'm a little dismayed that Spencer seems to be going with the idea of Hydra being a load of mystical mumbo-jumbo akin to the plat of Agents of Shield.
