The Best Images Reacting To The New, Awful Captain America Twist

So writer Nick Spencer had a bad idea for Captain America. And Marvel had the worse idea of letting it happen. But, as is often the case, the fans took the shitty lemons they had been handed and made lemonade. Image: Marvel

Honestly, since #SayNotoHydraCap has been trending, I don't know if it still counts as a spoiler, but I'm willing to be more cautious than not on this one. But here it is, a marketing gimmick which takes Captain America and says he's been Hydra all along:

Yeah. And Marvel editor Tom Brevoort is trying to say it makes sense if you back at all of Cap's comics, going back to when he was made. Which is both wrong and bullshit, since this is going to get undone in a few months anyway.

But what that now-infamous panel has done is inspire an amazing treasure trove of fan responses which swap out Cap's "Hail Hydra" with some other, equally infuriating things. Behold:

Dan Olson may the MVP of this particular game:

And now, an awful pun to take us home:

And here's what it would look like if other heroes were given the same treatment as Captain America:

Cap now gets to join the bad characterisation wasteland. I assume Tony Stark moved here during the original Civil War comic:


    Batman: "I shot my parents!"

    Wasn't that actually a twist in one of the comics once?

    EDIT: Upon reading my replies it seems like all the spoof lines have actually been done. Except Deadpool hating chimichangas. Deadpool could never hate such a deliciously-bad-for-you food item. :P

      I think the evil universe version Owlman killed his own parents.

      And there was a storyline where it seemed as though Daredevil had been faking his disability too, IIRC.

      Not to mention how spiderman really does have major issues with actually being responsible.

      I believe there's one version when he goes back in time to stop his parents murderer and then realises how bad the world would be without batman which also coincides with his realisation that he's the one that killed his parents

    Most of those weren't particularly funny.
    The other heroes, and the pizza ones are probably the best, in that order.

    In other news, Hydra are complete morons for thinking their greatest enemy for two centuries has changed sides... since Hydra didnt kill him the second they could, brainwash, con job, skrull invasion, or secret evil to uncover

    Weird. I kinda think it's the most interesting thing that's ever happened to Cap.

    Hilarious to read so many people passing judgement on a last page shock reveal in the first chapter of a yet-to-be-concluded story like they know the ending already.
