Captain America big news
You’d think that, what with the Libby verdict and the ongoing Walter Reed scandal and the presidential campaign horse race in full swing a year and a half before the general elections, it wouldn’t be that slow a news day.
You’d be wrong.
Everybody who’s anybody in mainstream news out there in the Real World seems to have grabbed onto the "shocking event" that Marvel is planning to kill off Captain America. Here’s the CNN take, complete with a tiny spoiler alert intro which appears about a half inch above the actual revelation. There’s also a pretty thorough Q&A with Joe Quesada about comic character death. Watch out, retailers — this could be the biggest thing to hit the "real" news world since… the death of Superman!
