If you think dodging movie and television spoilers is hard, just trying being a comic book fan. The biggest twists from any new comic day (that’s every Wednesday) will be in the headlines of every website before noon. It’s a problem.
So chances are strong that even non-readers know all about the big revelation that occurred in the final pages of yesterday’s Captain America: Steve Rogers #1, the new Marvel series from writer Nick Spencer and artist Jesus Saiz. I’m not going to spoil it in this paragraph, but I will spoil it after the jump as I explain why fans are furious and making their displeasure with this Captain America controversy known on social media…and why they’re almost certainly overreacting and will feel awfully silly as this story starts to play out.
