Marvel have just popped out a press release revealing the previously unseen cover to Secret Empire #9 and promising that the secrets of a Hydra agent Steve Rogers will finally stand completely revealed.
The cover, by Mark Brooks, has one of Marvel's tried and tested blacked out, silhouette's on the cover, facing off against Baron Zemo over a prone Black Panther.
Just who could this be?
Marvel went with little information beyond that, but did have this to say and of course pointed out that the Final Order Cut-off is approaching for the issue.
When Steve Rogers was revealed to be an agent of Hydra due to the manipulations of Red Skull, the Marvel Universe was rocked to its core. Now, it's the moment fans have been waiting for – and you're not going to want to miss this reveal!
