Goodbye, Captain America

So after 66 years, Marvel Comics is killing off Captain America. I’ve never been a big comics fan, but I can still remember the theme song from the Captain America cartoon back when I was a wee lad of four or five.

When Captain America throws his mighty shield…

Killing off America. Is it me, or is there some irony in this? Who kills Captain American, I wonder? In my imagination, it’s Dick Cheney in what he claims was a “hunting accident”.
