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.
