Captain America dead, killed on steps of Federal Courthouse

Comic Book Hero Captain America Dies
Mar 7, 1:11 PM EST


The Associated Press

NEW YORK - Captain America has undertaken his last mission at least for now.

The venerable superhero is killed in the issue of his namesake comic that hit stands Wednesday, the New York Daily News reported. On the new edition's pages, a sniper shoots down the shield-wielding hero as he leaves a courthouse.

It ends a long run for the stars-and-stripes-we aring character, created in 1941. Over the years, some 210 million copies of Captain America comic books, published by New York-based Marvel Entertainment Inc., have been sold in 75 countries.

But resurrections are not unknown in the world of comics, and Marvel Entertainment Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada said a Captain America comeback wasn't impossible.

Still, the character's death came as a blow to co-creator Joe Simon.

"We really need him now," said Simon, 93, who worked with artist Jack Kirby to devise Captain America as a foe for Adolf Hitler.

The superhero was spawned when a scrawny arts student named Steve Rogers, ineligible for the army because of his poor health but eager to serve his country, agreed to a "Super Soldier Serum" injection. The substance made him a paragon of physical perfection, armed only with his shield, his strength, his smarts and a command of martial arts.

In the comic-book universe, death is not always final. But even if Captain America turns out to have met his end in print, he may not disappear entirely: Marvel is developing a Captain America movie.

Marvel pretty much buried him at the end of Civil War: Frontline when they let Sally Floyd lecture Cap on how out of touch he is with what America is all about these days: myspace, American Idol and Paris Hilton. Way to kick a guy when he's already down.

Yeah, forget about all that kicking-Hitler's-ass, fighting-for-freedom shit. If you can't name the finalists on American Idol, you're a has-been.

When I first heard it, I thought they were going to say he was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan.

He'll make a comeback....



Disco is dead. Captain America is only dead-ish.

Despite being gunned down in the latest issue of his own comic book title, the red-white-and-blue-clad hero's planned big-screen adventure lives, a Marvel Studios spokesman said Wednesday.

"The movie is still going," the rep said.

Screenwriter David Self (Road to Perdition) is on script duty. No other names have been announced. Ditto for a release date.

In comic book stores, meanwhile, Captain America's prospects looked bleak with Marvel's Captain America #25, on sale Wednesday, featuring the bloody demise of its iconic namesake.

Steve Rogers, the crimefighter's everyday alter ego, was felled by an unidentified sniper on his way into a courthouse and pronounced dead at a hospital of "multiple gunshot wounds to the shoulder, chest and stomach," according to "assassination" coverage on Marvel Comics' Website.

Still, as is the way in a comic universe that saw the 1993 "death" of , all is not lost for the hero, first introduced in 1941.

In an interview with Reuters, Marvel publisher Dan Buckley basically said it was Captain America's secret identity, not Captain America, who was the goner.

"This is the end of Steve Rogers, the meat-and-potatoes guy from 1941," Buckley told the wire service. "But Captain America is a costume, and there are other people who could take it over."

Rogers' demise comes amid declining book sales, unlike, you know, all those other times when characters were killed off at the peak of their popularity.

A veteran of the comic wars, Rogers has been left for dead before. In 1945, per Captain America's official Marvel biography, he and faithful pal Bucky were believed blown to bits by a bomb. It turned out Rogers was merely frozen alive and waiting to be thawed out in the 1960s by the supergroup known as the Avengers.

The latter-day incarnation of Captain America inspired a 1960s cartoon series, a 1979 TV movie and a barely released 1990 theatrical movie starring author J.D. Salinger's son.

The new Captain America movie is to be produced as part of Marvel's ambitious plan for 10 self-financed flicks. Filming on the first of these productions, Iron Man, is due to begin this month; Robert Downey Jr. is set to star.

Rumours of Captain America's demise are greatly exaggerated. He just beat the shit out of Tim Sylvia last weekend.
