Less than 24 hours after #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend trended for hours on Twitter, Marvel fans were out in force once again following on from a shocking revelation featured in the latest Captain America comic book which led to readers discovering that Steve Rogers had been an agent of HYDRA all along.
Certainly considering the events of the latest Captain America film, Civil War, which sees Cap have to fight against many of his friends including Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) in defence of his HYDRA brainwashed former assassin best friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), the revelation has not gone down at all well with thousands taking to Twitter and using the hashtag #SayNoToHYDRACap to share their angry and disappointed views. Within an hour, as more fans joined in, the tag was trending on the site.
Below are just a selection of the comments.

Okay, normally I don't jump on bandwagons, but #SayNoToHYDRACap . It's wrong in so many ways that we can't put into 140 characters.

#SayNoToHYDRACap bc a national symbol of freedom and protection should not be turned into one of genocide and oppression

Bucky Barnes did not go through hell just to hear his best friend worked for the people who tortured him. #SayNoToHYDRACap
