RIP Captain America!

'Tis true.

It was on the Beeb and averything. I heard it on Radio 4 on the way home.


I'm working on fanart to commiserate this sad day, which I'll post up here after it's finished.



But what a way to kill him! Superman dies after a long, drawn out battle with an impossible supervillain, but Cap, a symbol of American patriotism, is killed by a sniper! I love the real-life paralells! Marvel have done it again, and I'm looking to buy this issue of the magazine, 'cause you know it'll be a collector's item in the future.

Visit the forums to discuss this in more detail.

I know I don't talk much about my love of Marvel comics, as it's not particularly relevant to Star Wars (apart from the Marvel Star Wars comics of the 1970's), but this was just too important for me to not comment on.


So Rest In Peace, Captain America, untill, in a few years' time, they decide to resurrect you again.

Pshaw
I found all the media cover on the issue silly. So what? He got shot. I’m sure he’ll be back one way or another before you know it. You *know* they just killed him to get the sales. Pshaw.

Don't worry!
They always find a way to bring back heroes! It's a scam to make money cuz they know tons of people will buy it!
