Stuntman: Death of Captain America

Well, Captain America is dead and the media is all over it. They actually reported on his funeral at Arlington Cemetary. I'm surprised the media is buying into this. Anyone who knows comic books knows this is a hoax for two reasons. One, no one is truly dead in comic books. They bring characters back from the dead all the time. Heck, Captain America was already frozen in ice for forty years. Second, is Marvel really stupid enough to kill off one of its most popular characters during the height of his popularity? I say no. And in such a lame way as getting shot by some nobody lone gunman? Doesn't Captain America wear body armor? I would only even slightly believe it if the Red Skull did the deed. That's like Batman facing the Joker, the Penguin, Bane, and the Riddler, and then getting killed by a carjacker trying to steal the Batmobile.

Dear Sir,

I can't believe they're killing off such a popular character purely for publicity. When has that ever worked?

LOL I thought the same thing. This is about as newsworthy as Batman's new shoes.
