So they think they can kill me off?

What a joke. Kill Captain America. That's like saying the Sun will go out forever. They ain't thru with me yet! Not by a damn sight! It's going to take more than a bunch of pencilnecks at Marvel to finish me off! Anyway, here is a funny cartoon from the Detroit Free Press which sums up my take:

Yeah, I read that.
Unreal, dude.

A true American icon.

It's only temporary I'm sure!

I love the cartoon, Tim.
Stephen Colbert has claimed to have inherited the adamantium-vibranium shield. I know his heart is in it but I think he lacks the super soldier qualities need to fill the boots.
As for Captain China, good luck with that tin shield, buddy.

That cartoon is spot-on.

This is one of the reasons I stopped collecting comics. It seems that the idea of "creativity" in the comics field these days just means kill a character and put someone else in the suit. Green Lantern, The Flash, Superman (who came back), and one of my faves, The Creeper (who didn't even get a decent death. He was shredded by dingoes), Captain Marvel (cancer). The list goes much further than that, I just can't remember them all anymore. It gets tiresome, though.There is so much emphasis on making comics "gritty" that they no longer serve as the escapism I grew up loving.

I heard about this. I couldn't believe it. I know, we're at war and there's so much going on in real life but come on...killing Captain America? Geez.
