The Marvel Comic Universe is in trouble and it is up to Black Widow and her ragtag team of Avengers to stop Steve Rogers. Captain America, with the help of Hydra, has become the leader of S.H.E.I.L.D and is looking at taking over the world. Black Widow won’t be the only one making sacrifices. This team of young Avenger will have to make tough decisions in order to stop Steve Rogers.
Black Widow’s Avengers
Black Widow knows she is outgunned and outnumbered so she enlists the help of some optimistic heroes.With the help of Miles Morales, a.k.a Spider-Man, Ironheart, Wasp, Amadeus Cho and Falcon, Black Widow hopes this team of youngsters can stop Captain America.
“One of the overriding themes in SECRET EMPIRE: UPRISING is for the heroes not to make the same old mistakes all over again,” said Landy. “The Champions, for instance, are looking for non-violent ways to stop violent opponents, and that ethos spills over into Uprising. How do a bunch of super-powered kids, brimming with optimism, factor in the Black Widow’s dark agenda when confronted with Captain America’s role in the Hydra takeover of America? What are they willing to do? How far are they willing to go?”
Landy continued, “This will be the first time many of them have stood side by side with the heroes they grew up reading about. This momentous occasion, unfortunately, will be slightly soured by the fact that they’re squaring off against the hero of heroes, the inspiration of all inspirations — Captain America himself.”
