Is Stephen Colbert secretly an agent of Hydra?
Trust no one in late night.
Some super-savvy Marvel fans spotted a disturbing message displayed during the intro of The Colbert Report’s Monday night episode.

Colbert has made it into the pages of a Marvel comic and has even been depicted as the Hulk by Joe Quesada. And when Captain America “died” in the comics in 2007, he gave his iconic, indestructible shield to Colbert, “the only man he believed had the red, white, and blue balls to carry the mantle.”
Cap doesn’t seem too happy about Colbert’s proclamation of “Hail Hydra!”

With Colbert set to take over The Late Show sometime in 2015, he’s about to get access to an even larger audience. Is this all part of an evil plot by Hydra? Or will Colbert’s apparent allegiance to the evil sleeper organization die with his character? We’ll just have to wait and see.
