Marvel have announced 52 new titles that it’ll be publishing as part of its Legacy initiative, and while there are many returning and renamed titles, there’s one thing missing from it all… Captain America.
Now, for those of you who have currently caught up with the latest happenings in the world of Marvel, you’ll probably remember that the last we saw of Steve Rogers’ Captain America was as the supreme leader of Hydra and had control of the United States in Marvel’s Secret Empire event.
This has caused many to wonder whether, despite Rogers’ fairly hectic history, he could actually come back from such a nefarious shift to the criminal life. Interestingly, all signs seem to be pointing towards him not making a return at all.
This wouldn’t be the first time that Marvel have killed-off Rogers, he first died almost ten years ago in 2007 only to be revived in 2009 during Marvel’s Captain America: Reborn series.
Of course Marvel love to leave us wondering. We’ll probably hear more about the future of Captain America at San-Diego Comic-con.
Marvel Legacy was unveiled on June 23 and according to Marvel it would “change the comic book industry”. Details are pretty thin right now, but what we know so far is that they’ll be launching a slew of comics with covers based on classic Marvel covers from the past.
