Secret Empire | Comics

Captain America turned out to be a true believer of Hydra ideals and siege control from within as he planned out!

Running S.H.I.E.L.D. these days, Captain America sends Captain Marvel leading Alpha Flight alongside Guardians of the Galaxy on space to hold a line of defense when a huge Chitauri Wave shows up. From Helicarrier bridge, Steve sends Ironheart and Iron Man to work up a Planetary Defense Shield that was taken down earlier by a Hydra bomber.

In the mean time, a group of super-villain attacks New York who was all former prisoners of Pleasant Hill and The Defenders were sent to take care of them. Hyperion and Quasar goes down while Nitro explodes in the middle of Manhattan. Announcing a state of emergency, Secretary of Defense made Steve Rogers command of national security.

The Shield suddenly goes back operational and cavalry arrive at New York as Avengers Unity Division, causing the villains flee. Before they could celebrate this victory, Commander Sharon Carter receives transmission of a collision with another Helicarrier and within moments they are under attack by Hydra goons under control of Doctor Faustus.

Cap then steps up telling everyone to hold their fire and the Hydra agents hail him as their Supreme Leader before taking Sharon into custody, who is baffled to learn that Steve was a traitor. Carol tries to communicate about opening a portal to Earth but Rogers made it clear that he want them occupied behind the shield with Chitauri waves.

Before being ambushed, Tony Stark A.I. eventually figured out the Chitauri invasion was a ploy to lure out the heavy hitters off Earth and the shield was never down. As Baron Zemo engulfs the island of Manhattan in a Darkforce dome using Blackout's powers, Iron Man sends out a distress call for heroes to assemble and Hydra takes over White House.

Secret Empire | Comics

In a new world order established by the evil empire, Inhumans are being forced to register and all mutants moved to New Tian. From his internment, Rick Jones passes a data to reveal the truth about Hydra Cap through a young hacker named Rayshaun Lucas to Ms. Marvel, Spider-Man, Totally Awesome Hulk and Viv Vision of the Champions.

Resistance against the regime is formed by Ant-Man, Black Widow, Giant-Man, Hawkeye, Hercules, Quicksilver, Rescue, Stingray, Thing, Tigra and Wonder Man. Cap has been leading a Hydra' version of The Avengers with Black Ant, Deadpool, Odinson, Scarlet Witch, Superior Octopus, Taskmaster and Vision to ruthlessly deal with any threats.

Neither Rick, nor Sharon agrees to swear loyalty to Hydra and when Rick is sentenced to death by a firing squad to make a statement, he dies saying "Avengers Assemble". Meanwhile, Steve reunites with Madame Hydra to acquire the Cosmic Cube and rewrite history of World War II. They then raze the entire city of Las Vegas with their Helicarriers.

Upon analyzing info sent by Rick, Tony came to conclusion on how the sentient Cosmic Cube named Kobik has altered Cap while saving him during "Standoff" fiasco after she was befriended with Johann Shmidt AKA Red Skull. Steve became a perfect soldier to Hydra, who then overthrew Shmidt to complete his own plan to rule the world.

So, he tried for Winter Soldier to join Hydra and his refusal led Zemo to launch a drone plane with Bucky in it. Kobik was shattered into fragments that got scattered in places and finding all of the pieces is the only way to turn things around as they once were. Cap is also actively looking for the Cube to reshape reality as he see fit in Hydra's image.

Natasha Romanoff takes it upon herself to kill off the evil Cap and the Champions tagged along to her help. Ant-Man, Hercules, Mockingbird and Quicksilver volunteered to go and retrieve all the Cube fragments with Tony and Falcon agreed to help them cross the border. However, he ended up taking his old mantle of Captain America once again.

Things started escalating as they show up at the doorstep of Ultron, now wearing the skin of Henry Pym. In the mean time, Hydra Cap struck treaty with enlists The Punisher as his enforcer and brings back The Incredible Hulk back from dead. All of these led to a grand showdown when the X-Men showed up right before an unexpected revelation.

Secret Empire Prelude

Secret Empire (Softcover)

Secret Empire (Hardcover)

In 2017, Marvel Comics hired writer Nick Spencer (Ant-Man – Second-Chance Man, Doctor Strange – Damnation) and illustrator Daniel Acuna (Uncanny Avengers – Avenge The Earth, Uncanny Avengers – Counter-Evolutionary) to conceive the plot for "Secret Empire" crossover event, which is collected in a limited series that ran for eleven issues.

Then there were a group of artists David Marquez (Defenders – Diamonds Are Forever, Defenders – Kingpins of New York), Leinil Francis Yu (Operation – Zero Tolerance, X-Men – The Hunt for Xavier), Paco Medina (New X-Men – Mercury Falling, New X-Men – Nimrod) and Steve McNiven (Civil War, Death of Wolverine) to fill in for some extra.

Hydra Supreme Leader

Pages that are drawn by artist Andrea Sorrentino were the literal down point of the entire story as some of the characters were completely unrecognizable from their appearance. Artist Rod Reis on the other hand, did quite fine compared to the former.

Following the events of "Time Runs Out" and "Secret Wars", everything was restored and Steve Rogers came back to existence alongside many others. When trying to save his life after an attack from Crossbones, sentient Cosmic Cube Kobik actually created a new version of Captain America that was loyal to Hydra and the real one became a memory.

Turning Captain America into a fascist and altering reality to let Hydra assume control was a bold move by Marvel though, or maybe rather stupid one. Bringing Hank Pym/Ultron hybrid into the mix as well as the deceased Green Goliath was unnecessary. Turning Frank Castle into an agent of the uprising evil empire was also really uncalled for.

Superior Spider-Man – A Troubled Mind
 | Comics
Octavious has now established himself in Peter Parker’s body after Peter had died in his old body (Dying Wish). As Superior Spider-Man, Octavious is acting in his own ways and viewpoints. As a result, he became more practical with any given situation and that makes him quite unfriendly. Currently, Spidey’s rogues gallery of villains are paying the painful price of the new-found attitude of their rival. The criminal mercenary Massacre has paid the ultimate price (My Own Worst Enemy) before and the duo of Jester and Screwball are bruised and battered by him recently for their pranks on him meant for some exclusive head-cam footage. Meanwhile, a portion of Peter Parker’s consciousness seemed yet to have remained along with Otto Octavious himself in his body.

Peter subsequently tries to stop Otto, whenever he overwhelms a villain or goes way too far. He fights to gain control over his body again and while Octavious was in sleep, he managed to slightly move his right hand. The Avengers also detected abnormalities in his behavior and threatens to kick him out of the team, leading him to a brief skirmish with Captain America. They knocked him up and ran a few tests on him that proves that he is not a Skrull or a shape-shifter. Octavious also detects these abnormalities in his mind when he tangled with Dr. Elias Wirtham AKA Cardiac and battles in his mind to decide who is worthy to be Spider-Man between him and Peter. With all the craziness going around, the Green Goblin assembles a new empire to which he is the Goblin King!

A new change has come to the entire Marvel Universe after the “Dying Wish” storyline from the Amazing Spider-Man monthly comic series back in 2012 that has launched the Superior Spider-Man as a new monthly ongoing title in the place of the former one. Writer Dan Slott (Mighty Avengers, She-Hulk) along with artist Humberto Ramos (Crimson, Revelations) and Ryan Stegman (Scarlet Spider, Wolverine) has cooked up this storyline pretty good which ran from issue #06-10 of the Superior Spider-Man series in 2013. The timeline then continues with the “No Escape” tale from the same series and eventually leads to the “Goblin Nation” crossover event.

Spider-Man – Ends of the Earth | Comics

A long time villain for Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus has fought numerous times in his long crime fighting career. Over years, he got beaten hard by the wall crawler, as well as Captain America, Daredevil, Ultron and many others. Moreover, he is getting old and those injuries of battles are slowly killing him as he is just a mere human with a genius mind and four cybernetic arms.

Spider-Man – Ends of the Earth | Comics

Octavious attempts to capture the newborn son that Menace gave birth of, believing it to be the offspring of Norman Osborn (in "Origin of the Species"). He thinks that the baby might be a source of the cure he desperately needs but looses interest upon learning that Harry Osborn is the father of the child. He even approached Tony Stark for help with no luck as well (in Invincible Iron Man – Unfixable).

So, he decides to be remembered even after his death and reforms his team of Sinister Six again with Chameleon, Electro, Mysterio, Rhino and Sandman along with himself as the leader of the team for one last time. First up, he and his goons invade Baxter Building where Spider-Man and Future Foundation engaged them while Octavious plans to steal one of Reed Richard's inventions for his plan.

Then Avengers Academy is attacked next and Intelligencia is defeated by the Six with no one else out there to conquer the world. Doctor Octavious actually plans to simply burn everything on Earth with his “Octavian Lens”, while his Sinister Six is busy fighting with Spidey and The Avengers.

After helping save Earth from the Skrulls, Deadpool was on his way to payday but someone ripped him off!

When he took a job from Nick Fury for infiltrating and acquiring sensitive data on the shape-shifting alien race of invading Skrulls, Deadpool accidentally had things mixed up and his second attempt for another job goes wrong as well. When he was headed back home two days later hopping in a cargo ship, he was suddenly attacked by Tiger Shark and drowned. He then finds himself on the news for beating Shark up in a fight as a group of journalists were asking him questions about it and one of them starts flirting.

All of these were what he was daydreaming about but in actual, two children on shore were poking into his eye-socket when he washed up on Newport Beach. In San Diego, Tiger Shark receives a call from his employer regarding a contract that has not being fulfilled as in, Deadpool is very much alive and he recently escaped from local morgue upon regaining consciousness. So, he is tasked to bring the head of the merc this time. Next morning, Wade wakes up in a homeless shelter and despite finding a really hot chick there; he decides to go out looking for a payback on Shark.

Just as he stepped outside, he sees Tiger Shark in the alley came looking for him with a big machete. He immediately got inside but the savage man-fish broke in to chop his head off but Wade quickly turned the table by taking his weapon from him but the local police came firing in believing that Deadpool was actually killing hostages and his enemy escaped. Before he could improve his chances with that attractive nurse, he is riddled with bullets by cops. When he unzips himself from a body bag, he was on a pier instead of a morgue.

The Man-Shark suddenly returns to take Wade by surprise but his old buddy Bob, Agent of HYDRA showed up to rescue. However, he is a big wuss who couldn't even throw his rifle back at DP without dropping it on water. Bob was actually here to assist Shark but ending up choosing Wilson's side and he eventually admits that after helping defeat the villain. Settling scores with Shark, Deadpool is now looking for the person responsible for this attack on him and he is none other than, Norman Osborn, director of H.A.M.M.E.R.

He heads to Avengers Tower for a huge payday that he believes Osborn owes him for the help in defeating the Skrulls, only to be facing the new team of Thunderbolts. Newest Black Widow managed to charm him and he wanted to hang out with her but due to interruption from her teammates, he flew. He calls Taskmaster for help, who also wants to take down Osborn.
