    Wow, did not see that death coming.
    But it certainly looks like Marvel did it at just the right time for their big media launch

    Think about who has a movie this month, and take a wild guess.

    Another clue, this isn't exactly the first time he's "died" :)

    I WAS LIKE "OMG I DIDN'T WANT HIM AS CAP, BUT I DIDN'T WANT HIM TO DIE EITHER!!" This was me D:

    Cap's going to be so angry in 5 mins.


    But you know in a few weeks/months/days? Tony will rebuild him HALF CYBORG!! I call it. Look at where the hole is in his chest, I mean that's the same hole. So He can join Tony and Pepper with their arc reactor chests and be a happy family....

    Yeah you can probably bet the next issue or so will have a mournful Steve Rogers slowly suiting up in the classic Cap suit, having Thor arrive, and then leading the assembled heroes while crying out "Avengers Assemble!". I can imagine the splash page right now :) 

    Yeah, it does seem there's a chance he'll live through it. Seems a waste of Brubaker's writing all these years to just write him off after building him up.

    It would actually be kind of funny if Marvel wrote a story that killed off the Green Lantern :D

    I'm a Marvel Guy to the core but it really annoys me how they pander to the Movies of their iconic characters in their books.

    didnt like that death...why couldn't they do like DC, have two Caps running around (seeing the two companies somehow always have similar ideas at the same time)

    Most likely somebody from the movie division told them having Steve Rogers as the one and only Captain America would be less confusing to new readers coming in from the movie :p 

    Think about it:
    "Oh yeah there are two Captain Americas right now, one the original, and the other is his former kid sidekick Bucky, who everyone thought died, but actually got brainwashed into a Soviet super-assassin with a bionic arm, kept young by suspended animation, and eventually came to his senses with the aid of a Cosmic Cube, and became Captain America after the original one died. Oh yeah the original guy came back, but that's another thing.."

    No johnny storm is not back yet and I see bucky coming back as I've heard rumors of Winter Soilder coming back and I thought was Bucky but I am probably wrong.

    I like the way this story is going and the 7 heroes/villians that got the new hammers are excellent choices. I am curious though to see how Hulk and Thing will be when this is all said and done as I know they won't keep either a bad guy any longer then they have to but it's still got to be stressful on the psych to be possesed and all by the serpents hammers

    You'd think that after multiple times of getting possessed/mind controlled, the smarter heroes i.e. Reed, Tony, Hank, Prof X etc would have come up with a way to prevent such things already :p

    Or Peter's parents!

    No, wait, too late.

    I am surprised Marvel hasn't brought Uncle Ben back yet. Give it time, though.

    This whole shock factor of killing a character just to bring him back needs to end already.

    I dont think they can bring back Uncle Ben, he's the reason Peter became Spidey, it kinda defeats the whole "With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility" thing
