There's no Cap solicitation here!

Who is it that gets killed indeed!

I think Marvel fully intends to bring Cap back especially if there's a lot of public interest... Interest which could lead to a movie.

On the flipside this is getting old, first Thor now Cap (maybe). There's a better way to write stories than this dull, obvious and sensationalistic method.

Makes sense. How do you make the Marvel Universe grim, gritty, and noirish? Remove the moral compass. The powers that be are clearly in favor of "realism" (i.e. deeply flawed characters) as opposed to heroism. Cap is a hero that's typically portrayed as without flaws. But lately he's been portrayed not as a paragon worthy of awe and respect, but a man too slow to realize that the times have changed and left him behind. Cap really doesn't fit in today's Marvel Universe.

In other words - I think you're on to something here, autochron.
