Captain America writer Nick Spencer ran into a ton of ruckus online via his Twitter feed. Apparently the ending to the new Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 story ended in a fashion that displeased Marvel fans, according to Bleeding Cool.
I can't respond to 9000 tweets per second, but if I could, I would say I admire your passion

Spoilers ahead, so be warned!
There were a ton of mean tweets in response, some that entailed people’s displeasure at turning the Joseph Simon and Jack Kirby creation into a “ruined legacy.” Captain America mean tweets also continued with complaints about turning the anti-Nazi hero into a Nazi.

In response, a fan tweeted a reminder about how the original Jewish creators set the anti-Hitler premise from the start. If anyone recalls the very first issue, it shows Cap punching Adolph Hitler in the chops.
The ending to the Captain America comic book left things open. Bleeding Cool speculated it to a bait-and-switch. Rogers was also compared to Agent Grant Ward from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and thought to be faking his role the entire time.
Even Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Kevin Feige was brought into the questioning.
“Is it a shot across the bow at Kevin Feige?”
Is it “all connected”?
