Captain America: Assassinated: The good Cap went out with a bang, killed by a sniper’s bullet. Much rhetoric will be invested in this by both sides, to be sure, but I also noticed we’re talking ish#25. CA’s been an on-and-off title for a while. Could his death – no doubt at the hands of Islamic jihadi forces working in unison with freedom-hating, gun-controlling liberals (alternately the staff at Walter Reed) – possibly be the result of sales that are in the toilet? (Of course, you know the worst thing about comic book deaths: Everybody always stays dead. Forever. Really.)
