Quote of the Day

Dude, shot by a sniper on the steps of a public building? Again?

Cap died in 1969, shot to death by HYDRA in front of witnesses. Had a big funeral where people talked about his great importance. (Captain America #111)

Cap died in 1992, shot to death on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial by the Punisher, who used a sniper rifle. Had a big funeral where people talked about his great importance. (Punisher and Captain America: Blood and Glory #1)

Cap died in 1996, when his body gave out due to the deterioration of the Super Soldier Serum. Had a big funeral where people talked about his great importance. (Cap #445 or so)

Cap died in 2002, blown up by a collection of aged Nazis in New Jersey who had an ICBM. Had a big funeral where people talked about his great importance. (Cap vol. 3, #50)

Cap died in 2005, shot by a random jackass in Harlem. Got better before there was time for a funeral. (Captain America and the Falcon #13)

The character lives to be martyred so people can talk about How Tragic It Is That America Is Dead, and Woe Is Us.

Man, they need to come up with better uses for the guy. Seriously, this is embarrassing.

I love Cap. Stop killing him, fer cryin' out loud! He's died enough!
