Via The Beat:
Yesterday Marvel issued the following statement before the release of the first issue of Secret Empire – a statement only released to ABC which is also owned by Disney.
“Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, will always be a cornerstone of the Marvel Universe who will stand up for what is right, and Secret Empire will be the biggest challenge Steve has ever faced. What you will see at the end of this journey is that his heart and soul — his core values, not his muscle or his shield — are what save the day against Hydra and will further prove that our heroes will always stand against oppression and show that good will always triumph over evil.”
Is that where we’re at now? When telling a fictional story, you have to reassure people that everything turns out okay in the end?
