For those of you interested in Super Heroes, check this out:

Superhero alter-ego Steve Rogers – the original Captain America – is to come back from the dead in a new five-part Marvel Comic series.

The first part of Captain America Reborn will be out in the US on 1 July, but its makers will not say how Rogers will come back to life.

Rogers was apparently shot and killed in 2007 on the steps of a courthouse.

Since then, the 68-year-old series has continued with Rogers’ sidekick Bucky Barnes taking on the superhero mantle.


Which reminds me, I’ve been meaning to repost my old post on Jim’s superhero book…

    Thoroughly unimpressed. The Civil War story arc actually worked as a great parable for what you get when you trade security for safety — fascism, and the death of America. A bit hamfisted in killing Cap himself, but there you have it.

    But hey. Comic book characters never stay dead. Never. Not even Jason Todd. (stupid Superboy Prime…)
