Captain America, an American icon since 1941, has been killed off in the new issue of “Civil War” series.
The world lost a hero Wednesday: Captain America was gunned down by assassins.
The superhero’s death in Captain America No. 25 is the latest development in Marvel Comics’ long-running “Civil War” story line, in which the American government is cracking down on superheroes, requiring them to register or be declared traitors. Captain America had resisted the government and was killed on his way to trial.
“This has been rumored for a long time, but I’m still amazed that Marvel had the audacity to actually go through with it,” says Mike Banks, owner of Samurai Comics in Phoenix.
