Comments, Notes, and Trivia:

1. While Captain America has appeared to "die" several times before, most notably at the end of World War Two, this is the first time that belief in his apparant death is backed up by a corpse.

2. Captain America # 25, while showing Captain America's apparant death, is interesting in that it features his closest non-Avengers colleagues and his oldest foe. Nick Fury and Bucky (and the Red Skull), all are of Captain America's generation, and all participated in World War Two. Sharon Carter has been Cap's main love interest since the 1960s, and this issue even features another friend from the war, showing Peggy Carter in flashback.
