> Great! Just as I plan on returning to read Marvel comics in March (Post-Civil War) ..... the theory that it's Steve Rogers/Captain America getting killed would really suck.
It would suck alright. I refuse to believe that "realistic", "gritty" and "noir" means a constant barrage of the worst that humanity has to offer. I really feel that Marvel is going down the wrong path and it's going to hurt them in the long run.
Maybe I'm wrong: the cognitive dissonance of the lowest common denominator seems to always win out. That is not a good thing. Except for ammorality and making the bucks that is... Sigh.
Maybe the whole Winter Soldier thing was planned long ago, to replace Cap with Bucky? That way, the Captain America solo series can continue with a newer, edgier Cap.
