Marvel's "Secret Wars"-related announcements have yet to slow down, with the publisher on Monday revealing "Hail Hydra" on ComicBook.com. The series stars Captain America's son Ian Rogers -- recently known as Nomad -- and is set to reunite the "Winter Soldier: The Bitter March" creative team of writer Rick Remender, line artist Roland Boschi, colorist Chris Chuckry and cover artist Andrew Robinson.
In "Hail Hydra," the titular terrorist organization -- which has gained mainstream fame in recent years due to the Marvel Studios films and "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." TV series -- is in charge of America, with Nomad a "fish out of water" attempting to navigate a world where the villains rule.
"We've always seen Hydra's attempts at world domination foiled, so this story gives us an opportunity to dig into a world where Hydra was not only never stopped but had insinuated itself into the American system and took over the country hundreds of years ago," Remender told ComicBook.com. "In this world, we'll see a New York City where Hydra was like the Freemasons of history. Hydra is now the American Dream."
Remender shared with ComicBook.com that "Hail Hydra" will include Hydra-ized versions of Marvel characters not typically associated with the group -- including Eddie Brock as "Hydra Venom," and a "fun version of the Hydra/Avengers."
In the interview, Remender also gave some fairly solid hints on his post-"Secret Wars" project at Marvel.
"I'm working on the big post-'Secret Wars' project right now, and it allows me to give readers a very clear and true starting point with a beloved franchise," Remender said. "It enables me to pick and choose what I think are the most integral and exciting aspects of that property. Coming out of the other end of 'Secret Wars,' I'll have the opportunity to do things in a much cleaner fashion. "
Based on the current solicitations cycle, "Hail Hydra" is likely to debut from Marvel in July.
