Why Does Marvel Comics Hate America?

I've never really cared for Captain America, one of several superheroes who is not actually a superhero. Just putting on some tights doesn't make you a superhero. I know. I tried. And it didn't give me any special powers, unless scaring away women with my tight crotch constitutes a superpower. Anyway, Marvel Comics has finally decided to off this guy.

Captain America has undertaken his last mission — at least for now. The venerable superhero is killed in the issue of his namesake comic that hit stands Wednesday, the Daily News reported.

On the new edition's pages, a sniper shoots down the shield-wielding hero as he leaves a courthouse, according to the newspaper.

It ends a long run for the stars-and-stripes-wearing character, created in 1941 to incarnate patriotic feeling during World War II.
