A lot of Marvel comic fans have been feeling a bit upset over the fact that the comic book studio decided to turn Captain America into a secret Hydra soldier in Secret Empire and it looks like they're not alone.
Former Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter has been criticizing the comic book franchise's current state, giving out strong words to the writers who created Secret Empire.
Sitting down to speak with Adventures in Poor Taste at this year's Rhode Island Comic-Con, Shooter began spewing out a lot of negative reviews about the current shape of Marvel Comics' recent state. Not only does the former comic book publication editor blast the studio for its "decompressed storytelling" and its sales gimmicks, he also airs out his frustrations with Secret Empire.
"Captain America a Nazi? Are you kidding me? Jack [Kirby] is rolling in his grave. Joe Simon is going to rise up out of his grave and kill those people. That was so wrong because that was not anything like the original intent of the creators."
Though Marvel seems pretty "thrilled to have sold more than 30,000 copies of Secret Empire, Shooter says that during his time as Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics, title's sales wouldn't go below 100,000 copies per comic. Guess times are changing for Marvel Comics, and not necessarily for the better.
What do you think about Secret Empire and the current state of Marvel Comics?
