Who really owns Captain America?

“Say It Ain’t So: Captain America Is a… Hydra Agent?!”

Marvel believes Captain America: Steve Rogers explores terror recruitment, flawed heroes and homegrown fascism. The single issue available lacks the context of later developments, and this isn’t even the first time the character has “been a Nazi.” Nuance doesn’t move units like outrage, though (nor will it upstage your chief rival). However this story resolves, it’s a shame Marvel has prioritized a gamble on the cleverness of its writers over the intelligence and experiences of the reader. Those writers appear to believe that in the end, all unplanned distress is a justifiable cost.
