Bucky Asks What We’re All Thinking: WTH is Wordle?

Who the Hell is Wordle
The four panels were taken from Captain America (2004) #8 by Ed Brubaker, Steve Epting, Mike Perkins, Frank D’Armata, and Chris Eliopoulos. This issue is part one in “The Winter Soldier” storyline, and it contains many beats that will be familiar from those who have seen the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie Captain America and the Winter Soldier (2014).
Meanwhile, Wordle is a word-based online game that is taking social media by storm. If you have an account on Twitter, you’ve more than likely seen people sending Tweets that seem to be composed solely of emojis that depict colored boxes.
These Tweets are part of the Wordle game, which was developed by Josh Wardle (the programmer behind “The Button” for Reddit). The game involves attempting to guess a daily five-letter word in only six tries (here at Marvel Blog, we’re more fans of four-letter words, like “hope,” but to each their own, we guess).
How long will the Wordle fad last? Only time will tell, Marvel Blog True Believers. But if you’d rather spend your internet time catching up on the Marvel Comics universe rather than guessing five-letter words, consider a subscription to Marvel Unlimited. Not only is the full Cap and Bucky storyline available, there are also exclusive Cap comics (like the Infinity Comic by Jay Edidin, Nico Leon, Dono Sanchez-Almara, and Joe Sabino, which has some cool lettering tricks itself).
Days of Love and Wordle
