    Report: Icon Captain America Killed Off. Marvel Comics Icon Ends 66-Year Run

    POSTED: 10:55 am EST March 7, 2007

    NEW YORK -- Captain America is dead.

    The venerable superhero is killed in the issue of his comic that hit stands Wednesday.

    A sniper shoots down the shield-wielding hero as he leaves a courthouse, according to the New York Daily News, which saw an advanced copy of the comic.

    The death of Captain America ends a 66-year run for the superhero created in 1941 to encourage patriotic feelings during World War II.

    Over the years, an estimated 210 million copies of "Captain America" comic books, published by New York-based Marvel Entertainment, have been sold in a total of 75 countries.

    But resurrections are not uncommon in the world of comics, and Marvel Entertainment editor in chief Joe Quesada said a Captain America comeback wasn't impossible.

    Still, the character's death came as a blow to co-creator Joe Simon.

    The 93-year-old Simon, worked with artist Jack Kirby to devise Captain America as a foe for Adolf Hitler.

    You do realize that this will probably create a whole new set of conspiracy theories and maybe start another war somewhere as soon as they figure out if Osama, the Taliban, Iraquis or Iranians are involved.

    Imagine someone doing that today to oppose Ol' Sammy Bin-Laden as a comic strip.
    They'd never hear the end of a need for "Freedom,Tolerance and Knowledge" as political pundit Natalie Maines said.
