    NEW YORK (CNN) -- He fought and triumphed over Hitler, Tojo, international Communism and a host of supervillains, but he could not dodge a sniper's bullet.

    Comic book hero Captain America is dead.

    After close to 60 years in print, Marvel Comics has killed off Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, one of its most famous and beloved superheroes amid an already controversial story line, "Civil War," which is pitting the heroes of Marvel's universe against one another.

    In the comic series, Rogers was to stand trial for defying a superhero registration law passed after a hero's tragic mistake causes a 9/11-like event.

    Steve Rogers eventually surrenders to police. He is later mortally wounded as he climbs the courthouse steps.

    Eh, They will bring him back to life with some sort of super solder serum if they need him.
    He was outdated anyways.
    What relevance doeas a character created for WWII era mindsets.
    The guy is basically a flag with muscles, patriotism is at a low right now.


    All the kids my age pee their pants, it's the coolest.

    Nothing lasts forever in comic books. Its all just to raise interest in the series. It may be a few months but he will be back
