Word Of Captain America Going Hydra Reaches Chris Evans

First the Captain America comic book writer Nick Spencer got an ear full from displeased fans across social media. Now word has reached Chris Evans and he responded in a short tweet, according to a Metro report.

The ending to Spencer’s Captain America: Steve Rogers debut comic book came as a huge disappointment to many fans. They thought it was a bad move considering that Jack Kirby and Joseph Simon launched the publication with an anti-Hitler premise. The writer received death threats via Twitter, but acknowledge the passion.

If anyone recalls Stephen King’s Misery, the writer in that film killed off a character so adored by his “number one fan” played by Kathy Bates. Her response was also impassioned.

Spencer explained himself in an interview by The Daily Beast. He talks of his reason for transforming Captain America into a villain.

“When you decide to do something like this, you understand obviously that people aren’t gonna throw you a party for it. You understand that this is the kind of story designed to upset people and shock people and worry people. That’s the response you’re supposed to have to something like this, when you’re seeing a bad thing.”

This was already on the horizon. In fact, Metro reported in an interview with Marvel’s executive editor Tom Brevoort that plans were in the works a couple of years ago.

“There should be a feeling of horror and unsettledness at the idea that somebody like this can secretly be part of this organisation.”

The Captain America transformation wasn’t meant to be a gimmick either and considered to be around for the long haul. This probably leaves fans wondering how Steve Rogers will change back.
