Since Marvel revealed that Captain America, Steve Rogers was a Nazi --- I'm sorry, "agent of HYDRA" --- last year, we all knew it would blow up eventually, and earlier this year the publisher announced plans for a summer event titled Secret Empire. Today, Marvel spilled some of the beans on what exactly Secret Empire is and how it will impact the heroes of the Marvel Universe.

ICYMI: A New Director For SHIELD Paves The Way For ‘Secret Empire’

With Civil War II done and dusted, Marvel has its eyes on the next big event to change everything forever. The publisher has shared teasers for an upcoming storyline titled "Secret Empire," but no further information has been revealed.

ICYMI: Actually, ‘Astonishing Ant-Man’ Features The Most Obscure Villain Team In Comics

Lang's-Eleven

Last week, I stated confidently that The Maker’s team of New Revengers from the pages of New Avengers was the most obscure assembly of supervillains into one group, citing little known characters such as Asti and Skar as proof. It now seems that team may have held the distinction for one whole week, as this week’s issue of The Astonishing Ant-Man by Nick Spencer and Ramon Rosanas has potentially outdone them with a team I like to call Lang’s Eleven.

Admittedly there are only ten members, but it sounds better with Eleven, and Nick Spencer’s Sinister Six in Superior Foes of Spider-Man only had five members, so I feel like it works.
