Details Emerge Concerning The First Secret Empire Tie-ins

By

Ever since Marvel pulled back the curtain on its next major crossover event, Secret Empire, the hype train has shown absolutely no signs of slowing down. Not only do readers have a Free Comic Book Day sampler to look forward to this May, but also the first round of tie-ins set to broaden the experience.

Not surprisingly, Captain America: Steve Rogers #17 is set to take part in the festivities. Aside from Rogers looking a bit fascistic in some Hydra threads, Marvel hasn’t given us much to go on. It’s understandable that they keep their cards close to their vest as none of us have read a single page from anything to be included in this event, but here’s the official solicit anyway:

One participating title joining the action that kind of surprised us was that of U.S.Avengers #6. Personally, I find the prospect of Steve meeting up with the female Captain America from a possible future to be highly exciting, but I’m not sure if that thread will be explored in the crossover. Here’s what we do know, though:

Plus: Are we actually going to kill Cannonball?

Finally, we come to Captain America: Sam Wilson #22, which we expect to capture one of the most heartbreaking aspects of this tale: Just how is Rogers’ best buddy going to take the news that he’s Hydra? We’ll have to wait and see, but until then, check out the solicit for said issue below:
