This Morning CNN reported that Marvel comics as killed off one it’s most long standing Heroes Captain America.

After close to 60 years in print, Marvel Comics has killed off Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, one of its most famous and beloved superheroes amid an already controversial story line, “Civil War,” which is pitting the heroes of Marvel’s universe against one another.

In the comic series, Rogers was to stand trial for defying a superhero registration law passed after a hero’s tragic mistake causes a 9/11-like event.

Steve Rogers eventually surrenders to police. He is later mortally wounded as he climbs the courthouse steps.

Still, one has to wonder: Is Captain America really dead? Comic book characters have routinely died, only to be resurrected when necessary to storylines.

Joe Quesada agrees — but said times are different now.

I just want to say that this is a horrible send off to one of the best comic characters that has endured through much. Thanks so much, and people wonder why I don’t read Marvel Comics anymore. At least I have Marvel Ultimate Alliance to comfort me.

  1. wow.

    as odd as it is to say, this is kind of sad. i dare to say that cap is marvels greatest hero. i know writers have a histroy of “reviving” dead charcters, but it would be very interesting if this was truly the end of captain america.

  2. Rest In Peace Captain America. Now if we can just stop fuckin’ CNN from trying to turn this into some kind of “anti-war” message. Last thing we need is for them to cheapen his death with their desperation to turn the world against Bush.
