It’s the best issue of the series yet.
Marvel’s Secret Empire has surprised, angered, and even upset fans from its very first page, due to the Captain America-Hydra reveal that preceded the comic’s debut. It’s been a rattling game changer: Everything we knew about the character of Steve Rogers, the American hero who has transcended his comic books through the Captain America film franchise, was wrong and he was the ultimate betrayer. Secret Empire’s third issue — Secret Empire No. 2*, released Wednesday — is a blistering reminder of just how powerful that twist was.
