About a week ago Marvel released the cover to the new Marvel NOW! Captain America which featured Steve Rogers sporting Thor-length hair.
That isn't the Cap most are used to, and we know if his superiors caught a glimpse, Captain America would get an Article 15 faster than he can shake a stick at.
Marvel released the full December solicit for Captain America #2 where we see the reason for Captain America's long hair is that Cap gets stuck in another dimension — Dimension Z!
Dimension Z is said to be a dimension with no atomic energy technology. They have previously attempted to steal Earth's scientists - including Hank Pym - to develop their own. However, Earth's mightiest heroes have put a stop to the inhabitants of Dimension Z, including the Living Eraser, numerous times.
We take it Captain America must have left his combat knife at home.
