If you have been following comics Steve Rogers has been out of commission for a while as he lost the super soldier serum that made him special in a battle with the Iron Nail. Much older but still in the fight Steve handed his shield and moniker over to Sam Wilson and became mission coordinator for The Avengers. During the events of Avengers: Standoff Steve Rogers attempts to reason with Kobik and is attacked by Crossbones. So that Steve isn’t killed and can defeat Crossbones Kobik restores the super solider serum in his body and Captain America is REBORN!
Now that he is back to full strength is time to Steve Rogers to kick so villain ass, and just in time too as Hydra has returned along with his arch nemesis the Red Skull and this time they maybe too powerful for even a restored Captain America to stop them.
Here are the full details and preview images from Marvel..
The original Sentinel of Liberty returns! Recently restored to his super-powered self, Steve Rogers makes his triumphant return to the red, white and blue this May in the all-new CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERS #1! Hot off the blockbuster Avengers: Standoff crossover, creators Nick Spencer and Jesus Saiz bring Steve back into the field with a new mission, a new costume, a new shield and wall-to-wall action!
“The country is as divided as it’s ever been, and Steve is one of a kind,” says Nick Spencer, in an interview with Marvel.com. “He’s a unifying figure, someone we can all look up to, [and] someone we can all put our faith in. It’s no secret the Marvel Universe is about to enter a period of serious conflict with Civil War II looming on the horizon, and as such, it feels like the perfect moment to bring Steve back into fighting shape.”
He may be back but the celebration will be short lived. Steve isn’t the only one who’s returned stronger than ever. Hydra has re-emerged. Led by his greatest foe, the Red Skull, Hydra has begun to worm its way into every corner of the Marvel Universe. Anyone can be a threat. Trust no one. Even a restored Captain America may not be enough to stop the far reaching tentacles of Hydra.
With a rallying cry of “Avengers Assemble”, the Sentinel of Liberty charges headlong into the fight once more. But will his first day back on the job be his last? Find out when CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERS #1 explodes into comic shops and digital devices this May!
