Captain America stunned fans this week when the new comic series "Captain America: Steve Rogers" revealed that the beloved superhero has been an undercover operative all of these years.

"Captain America: Steve Rogers" made its debut Wednesday with Marvel writer Nick Spencer and editor Tom Brevoort telling Entertainment Weekly that the story line is not a trick.

The next issue will "wind the clock back a little" to reveal how Captain American became a deep cover operative for Hydra, the group he's fought through decades' worth of storylines, Brevoort told Time magazine.

"And it lays out a roadmap for where things are headed in the future," Brevoort said. "At this point, I don't want to say too much definitively because I want people to read the comic books. But people will be able to connect the dots and follow the trail of breadcrumbs."

Brevoort acknowledged that he knew people would be stunned by the storyline, but he was looking to "push that button" with fans, adding that they should feel a certain "horror or unsettledness" that Captain America is a traitor.

"There are perfectly normal people in the world who you would interact with on a professional level or personal level, and they seem like the salt of the earth but then it turns out they have some horrible secret — whether it's that they don't like a certain group of people or have bodies buried in their basement," Brevoort told Time. "You should feel uneasy about the fact that everything you know and love about Steve Rogers can be upended."

Captain America's betrayal appeared to have caught Chris Evans, who has turned the character into a major movie attraction, by surprise.



Syndicated columnist Ben Shapiro tweeted that Marvel's decision on Captain America represents something more sinister afoot.



Other fans simply took the latest version of Captain American in stride.
