Captain America... Spoilers
 
He's back...

Quote:

Captain America is making a miraculous recovery.

Two years after Marvel Comics knocked off its famous star-spangled superhero, he's gonna be back and better than ever.

"The original Captain America is finally coming back," Marvel Comics editor in chief Joe Quesada told the Daily News. "We've been patiently planning for this moment for 21/2 years."

What! I thought he was dead forever and ever! This is so shocking and unexpected! I can't imagine anyone saw this coming at all! Oh my God, Marvel is so awesome and original! They blew my mind!

Wait... didn't we already know this after the release of Ironman?

'Bout F'n time.

But they'll retcon this but not Gwen The Whore or Scotty The Adulterer. Typical fucking Quesada Marvel.

^Scotty the Adulterer is about the first interesting thing ever to happen to the character.

I think a few people forget how Jean was behaving when it started, too.

Not surprised at all. The death & resurrection schtick is sooooo old at this point.
I'll not even buy the issue(s). I will get the TPB at half off from a comic vendor but I can't muster a lot of excitement about this 'big' news.

It's about time. I liked the story, but it has stretched out way too long. Bucky America is just not compelling. Bucky, the Winter Soldier, is cool though and I would not mind seeing him in more in that role.

Shit...I guess I have to remove my "Cap: R.I.P." tattoo.

I haven't read this storyline yet (I just bought three of the trades at a sale yesterday though!) but I thought the Bucky Cap story was immensely popular. You'd think they would keep Rogers dead or at least wait to time his ressurection with the movie in another year. Do we know how exactly he's coming back?

I'm just a little disappointed that they didn't bring him back right away if they were going to bring him back at all. I mean sure the "OMG they killed CAP!" wouldn't have been as shocking, but given how Tony was acting and how the whole MU was at that point, Cap's death was needed really. And to be honest... not to make yet another Batman quote, Bucky isn't the Cap we needed, but the Cap the MU deserved. It needed a Cap more willing to do the "dirty deeds" while trying to uphold truth, justice and the American Way.

While yes, I miss Steve Rogers, I am not entirely turned off by the Bucky-Cap either. I think its still pretty fuckin' cool how they merged Buck with Black Widow, boy that woman has had more husbands and lovers than Liz Taylor! But at least it gives Cap a worthy female counterpart, one that isn't upstaged when you see her fighting along side Cap.

I do hope that maybe Steve doesn't retake the mantle right away when he comes back, heck, I'd love to see him force Osborn out and take HAMMER away and replace it with a new SHIELD. I always did wonder why Cap never evolved into say "General" America or something by this point - or even Colonel America. I always assumed that Captain was his military rank.

Oh, but those were edgey and dramatic and therefore good stories!!!!


Or not really that good at all.........



Well, at least they'll bring back Classic Cap..... I'm tired of the "new" Captain America... You know, the one who uses a gun, totally defeating the entire purpose of a Superhero in the first place?

Well at least Superman, Hal Jordan, Oliver Queen and Barry Allen had the decency to stay dead! ;)
