Will Marvel Revive Captain America?

captaindead_190x190New York mag asks: ‘When Marvel Comics killed off Captain America — one of the company’s oldest and most iconic characters — back in 2007, sales were predictably brisk, thanks in part to the attention of the mainstream press. The surprising thing, though, is that the series actually continued to build upon its regular audience without its title character, and when Steve Rogers was eventually replaced as Captain America by his former sidekick Bucky Barnes, the fan response was almost universally positive. With this in mind, it seems a bit strange that Marvel would begin to hype a forthcoming mini-series titled ‘Reborn’ with imagery strongly hinting that Rogers is about to return from the dead.’
