Comic book fans had an incredibly strong reaction after learning that the return of Steve Rogers as Captain America in the comic books, wasn’t what the return they had wished for. Last week fans learned that Steve Rogers was an undercover agent for Hydra since he was a young child.
Clark Gregg, who plays Agent Phil Coulson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, took to Twitter to express his reaction to the comic book twist. Coulson is without a doubt one of the biggest fans of Captain America. He was shocked at first, using the hashtag #cantbelieveitdontbelieveitwontbelieve but later told writer Nick Spencer that he would wait and see where the story goes.
I'm sorry, Steve Rogers said what?! #cantbelieveitdontbelieveitwontbelieveit

Hey, @nickspencer you tell your story. I’ll wait and see where it goes.

Spencer has already addressed outraged fans explaing that this is in fact Steve Rogers.
“This is not a clone, not an imposter, not mind control, not someone else acting through Steve. This really is Steve Rogers, Captain America himself.”
