Nick Spencer and Jesus Saiz shook the Marvel Universe when they revealed that Steve Rogers, one of the publisher's most beloved heroes, was secretly a deep cover HYDRA agent working to undermine the Avengers and bring about a new HYDRA regime. Marvel has now provided us with a first look at the upcoming Captain America: Steve Rogers #7, which kicks off a new arc appropriately titled "Hail Hydra."

Recent issues of the series have revealed that Steve --- while loyal to HYDRA --- isn't quite as loyal to the Red Skull as the Skull seems to think, and along with Dr. Erik Selvig the good (bad) Captain has plans of his own for the terrorist organisation.

Furthermore, tie-ins to the current Civil War II event have shown Steve to have a much larger role to play in the undermining of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, which will no doubt continue as his plans unfurl and, according to the solicitation he'll discover a secret that will change everything forever --- again.
