The most recent Marvel comic release revealed that Captain America was actually a secret Hydra agent all along. Fans were all shocked by this huge twist. Some dismissed it as nothing more than a gimmick. Some were even angry because of it. And yet others thought it made sense. But what does “Avengers” creator Stan Lee think of the big Hydra Cap reveal? Does he think it was as crazy as some fans thought?
According to ComicBook.com, he does. But he reportedly “can’t fault” the current roster of “Captain America” writers for their story decision. He said he understands why the writers went with a Hydra Cap storyline. “I think it’s crazy, but it’s a good idea,” Lee was quoted as saying. “It’s a hell of a clever idea. I don’t know that I would ever have thought of it for him to be a double agent, but it’s going to make you curious, it’s going to make you want to read the books, they’ll probably do a movie based on it.”
Marvel writer Nick Spencer earlier defended their decision to make Steve Rogers a plant from Hydra. The idea, he said, first came to him while studying former “Captain America” writer Rick Remender’s work. “Remender…had been building towards this story of Hydra having infiltrated various institutions of government and various super teams,” Spencer explained in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “I thought that sounded like too big of a story. I drilled it down and thought, what if there’s just one very valuable Hydra plant? What if they’re looking for 100 people, but there’s just one?”
Spencer also denied rumors that Cap is just being controlled. “This is not a clone, not an impostor, not mind control, not someone else acting through Steve. This really is Steve Rogers, Captain America himself,” he said.
