Madame Hydra Has a Really Weird Origin

Here's her origin...

Yep, she's evil because her face was scarred! That is so not a good reason for her to be evil! Steranko does an amazing job drawing it all, but it really does not work overall.

The plan is to gas the Avengers at Cap's funeral...

But Cap is not dead, of course, so he and Bucky attack Hydra and take them all out except for Madame Hydra, who has a fitting fate...

Wow, Steranko really just did such an amazing job on the artwork for this story arc.

And yet, still, her motivation is that her face is scarred? That was luckily forgotten by later writers for good reason.

If anyone else has a suggestion for a story that you wish you could forget, drop me a line at brianc@cbr.com!
