Hail Hydra #1-4

Post by Col_Fury » Fri Aug 04, 2017 4:26 am

HAIL HYDRA #1 (September 2015)
By Rick Remender & Roland Boschi

APPEARANCES:
Nomad (Ian Rogers)
Christopher Miller, Arnim Zola, Captain Hydra (Leopold Zola)

FLASHBACK:
Repeat of CA7 8, no new information.
SYNOPSIS:
Nomad finds himself in a nightmare world ruled by Hydra. People are essentially viewed as cogs, and if you’re deemed unproductive you’re melted into slag and your biomaterial is reused by Hydra’s facilities for other purposes. Nomad blows up a Hydra facility and is then confronted by Captain Hydra: himself!

NOTE:
Nomad vanished in the Infinite Elevator in ANCA 6; this is where he ended up. He doesn’t appear at the start of this issue, he’s already been here for at least a little bit. Later issues reveal this is a world where Hydra took over during the Revolutionary War, by the way.

I don’t think Nomad went from ANCA 6 straight to Battleworld. Instead, I think he went from ANCA 6 to this reality, and this reality just happened to be one of the worlds cobbled together to make Battleworld. Not that it matters that much, really.

HAIL HYDRA #2 (November 2015)
By Rick Remender & Roland Boschi

APPEARANCES:
Nomad (Ian Rogers, also in fb), Captain America (Steve Rogers, in fb)
Captain Hydra II (Leopold Zola), Arnim Zola, Ellie Rogers, Clint Barton, Wasp (Janet), Frank Castle, Tony Stark, Ultron, Ant-Man (Hank), Captain Marvel (Carol), Steve Rogers (formerly Captain Hydra), Sharon Carter, Nick Fury, Matt Murdock, Venom (Eddie & symbiote), Vipers

FLASHBACK:
Steve tells Ian about Steve’s mom.
SYNOPSIS:
Captain Hydra breaks Nomad’s back, but he crawls away. His suit heals him and he is found by the underground resistance. They form a plan to kill Zola, but they’re attacked by Venom and the Vipers. Nomad and Ellie Rogers escape as the rest of the resistance is killed, but Ellie has been infected by Venom’s symbiote. Also, Arnim Zola captures Steve Rogers and infects his body with Zola’s essence.

HAIL HYDRA #3 (November 2015)
By Rick Remender & Roland Boschi

APPEARANCES:
Nomad (Ian Rogers)
Iron Baron (von Strucker), Captain Hydra, Venom, Cassandra, Iron Nail, Dr. Mindbubble, Drain, Ellie Rogers, Arnim Zola, Dum Dum Dugan, Nick Fury Jr., Steve Rogers (animated corpse)

SYNOPSIS:
Nomad and Ellie continue with the plan and head to Hydra headquarters. He tries to pose as Captain Hydra, but Zola already knows it’s not really Leopold but lets him through anyway. Nomad uses a device to trap Zola in Steve’s body, but the symbiote begins to affect Ellie, distracting him. Nomad is attacked by Hydra’s Avengers.

HAIL HYDRA #4 (January 2016)
By Rick Remender & Roland Boschi

APPEARANCES:
Nomad (Ian Rogers, also in fb), Captain America (Steve Rogers, in fb)
Iron Baron (von Strucker), Captain Hydra, Venom, Cassandra, Iron Nail, Dr. Mindbubble, Drain, Arnim Zola, Steve Rogers (animated corpse), Ellie Rogers

FLASHBACK:
Nomad and the elderly Steve Rogers discuss what to do when there are no other options left.
SYNOPSIS:
Not seeing any other option, Nomad commits suicide, but he’s saved by Ellie, who has taken control of the symbiote. They return to the Infinite Elevator, he chooses “616” and they vanish as Hydra’s Avengers destroy the device.

NOTE:
And that’s it! As far as I know, Nomad hasn’t appeared since.

Also, another choice on the Infinite Elevator is “691.” Yee!
