Spoilers is in the headline, so let's dive right into this. Marvel's Free Comic Book Day special issue of Secret Empire is out May 6, but during the Secret Empire panel at C2E2, a few lucky readers were able to read the issue early on stage.

What would cause readers to scream uncontrollably, besides having to be near Nick Spencer? Here goes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The final page of the issue sees Steve Rogers, current head of Hydra, and on-again/off-again branch of the Nazi party, holding Mjolnir, Thor's hammer, above defeated Marvel heroes. Only those who are worthy enough are able to wield the hammer, which is strange that the largest fascist in the Marvel Universe would be worthy enough to wield it.

The Nazis were big fans of Norse mythology, with the swastika being used by the Norse and Germanic peoples, while being one of the central symbols of Proto-Indo-European society, which the Nazis appropriated as a way to return to their roots. Hitler's right-hand man, Himmler, who wanted the S.S. to resemble a Nordic knightly order, gave the S.S. a Thor-inspired thunderbolt as a symbol. Thor's Hammer is currently used by Neo-Nazis, symbolically, so seeing a fascist Captain America literally raise Thor's Hammer high won't fall on deaf ears.
