Captain America Dead at 66

CAPTAIN AMERICA IS DEAD. It’s a powerful headline, even for those who have never picked up a Marvel comic book and don’t know “The Sentinel of Liberty” from “The Scarlet Swashbuckler.” Fans and novices alike have been struck by the poignancy of the image on the pages of the comic book, released Wednesday: a patriotic do-gooder with a bullet piercing his burly, red-white-and-blue torso.

So, another comic hero dies. Wonder when they'll resurrect him. I mean, they killed off Superman then brought him back.

Not to sound offensive, insensitive or anything but I do hope they just leave him dead.
