When Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 went on sale this morning, it's fair to say the great many of us didn't anticipate the shocking Steve Rogers Hydra Agent twist.

TIME managed to sit down with Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort to pick his brain about the decision. Considering the interview in full, we learn that this was a strategic move on the comic book writer Nick Spencer's part to 'restore youth and vigor' to Cap'n, post super soldier serum-breakdown. The massive reveal has been in the works for more than a year. 

Kind of interesting to think about how this will impact the wider scope of the Marvel Universe, don't you think? The fact that someone named Captain America is literally revealed as having a perverse allegiance to an organization with these beliefs. A few of my favorite reactions from the internet to this news, to surface so far:

I'd encourage you to check out the interview from TIME with Marvel Exec. Editor in full over here!

Let's get a discussion rolling on any and all thoughts, complaints, predictions in light of the news encircling Cap'n 'Hydra' today.

Not sure whether we should count this as a spoiler persay, but I'm just glad we've got Ruffalo expressing genuine excitement over what's to come with Thor: Ragnarok. Can you blame the guy though? In his interview during a press stop amidst the tour for Now You See Me 2, Ruffalo said:

Ruffalo: “I think it’ll be smashing. You’ll see a lot more Hulk in this one.”
Harrelson: “Does The Hulk get Hulk-ier?”
Ruffalo: “The Hulk gets Hulk-ier. The Hulk Hulks out. Hulk-ier and bigger.”

Alright, alright. Then Lauren Zima of Entertainment Tonight followed that little revelation up by asking Ruffalo about Cate Blanchett's portrayal of Asgardian Goddess of Death 'Hela', and he said, ”She plays the worst of the worst. So evil. She is going to kill us. It’s such a great part she gets to play.”

Is this a befitting segway to the Planet Hulk storyline, or what?
