Good Morning, good afternoon, good evening, and good night dear readers. This week’s tenth issue of Time Wasting will be all about the best thing that Marvel comics has right now. That being Nick Spencer’s Steve Rogers: Captain America. Do you remember like last year when you saw that panel of Captain America saying “hail hydra”? Everyone was all like whaaaaat? Cap can’t be a hydra agent, he’s Captain America. He fights for truth, justice, and the American way(Or is that Superman). So first of all, the change of Steve Rogers to hydra agent is not what you think it is. All I will say is that a being who can warp reality changed Steve Rogers past to that he was always a hydra agent. There is the prime timeline where Steve Rogers grew up and lived as the America loving sentinel of liberty he always was. And at the request of the Red Skull said reality warping being changed Steve Rogers backstory to that he joined hydra as a child and has secretly been serving Hydra since then So anyway, I read the first six issues and let me tell you something. It’s one of the best stories I’ve read in awhile.

 

Let me say something, first of all, the change of Steve Rogers to hydra agent is not what you think it is. All I will say is that a being who can warp reality changed Steve Rogers past to that he was always a hydra agent. There is the prime timeline where Steve Rogers grew up and lived as the America loving sentinel of liberty he always was. And at the request of the Red Skull said reality warping being changed Steve Rogers backstory to that he joined hydra as a child and has secretly been serving Hydra since then. Marvel following the mostly successful trend of taking prominent superheroes and making them bad guys who do heroic things works(A la Superior Spider-Man, Doc Green, Superior Iron Man) with Cap. There’s something that is just so fascinating about looking through the Marvel universe through a new lens that is a Steve Rogers who is loyal to hydra’s cause. We see him putting on his real mask of being a good guy, subtly manipulating heroes to do what he wants, being an icon for the American people, his general commentary on the state of the marvel universe of today, serving his master the Red Skull, and a ton of other cool stuff. What I love especially is that even though Cap is a Nazi thanks to that reality warping being I mentioned earlier, he’s still generally a good person(as good as a nazi can get). He shows a lot of empathy and regret for something he didn’t want I guarantee you that if you give Hydra Captain America a chance, as I did. You will like him so much that you’ll kinda root for him, as I kinda do. Once again, Nick Spencer’s Steve Rogers: Captain America is really one the best Captain America stories since Ed Brubaker’s time on the book(Ed’s time is what they based Captain America: The Winter Soldier).
