Separated At Birth: Hydra Cap From Secret Empire #10 And The Civil Warrior From Contest Of Champions

Recently revealed in a shocking announcement, Marvel's controversial Secret Empire super-mega-crossover event series is getting an extra issue in August. And on the cover of Secret Empire #10, we're treated to a glimpse of what appears to be a new armored costume for Hydra Captain America:


But does that armor feel familiar? Perhaps a look at this image from Marvel's Contest of Champions video game will help:


An original creation for the game, Civil Warrior — not to be confused with the future Marvel event comic threequel, Civil War 3: This Time It's Civil Warrier — debuted around the time that the movie Captain America: Civil War came out. He's from a reality where the Civil War ended after Steve Rogers killed Tony Stark, so he used the technology of his deceased friend to become the Civil Warrior.

Was the Civil Warrior the inspiration for Hydra Steve's armor? Here in the column formerly known as Swipe File, we let U DECIDE:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
