Yup. Fuck the epilogue. I'm boycotting it now. Like the guy said, I read the memo...

-- He looks around at the crowds assembled on the edge of town and he sees something he’s never seen before: Fear. Cap inspires hope and yet here he is terrifying the locals. They start to yell at him, voicing everything we’ve seen in the background throughout the series about how they WANT a register and need to be protected from lunatics in masks doing whatever they want; completely unaccountable vigilantes.

Cap realizes he was wrong. He realizes he’s been fighting for masks when he should have been fighting for America



if that isn't the biggest anal depository i've ever coughed up, I don't know what is.

let's draw a little analogy here...9/11. After it occurred, the "american public" wanted justice/revenge, and were willing to bomb the ever loving Allah out of ANY culprit that the powers at be deemed damnable. (and I don't think I'm reaching, analogy wise, here..."lunatics in masks"? A terrorist, at least to themselves and their supporters, are vigilantes. Anyway, the same level of bloodlust and cries for justice and a tightening of security measures apply to both 9/11 and the incident that sparked this whole Civil Shebang all those months (years? feels like it) ago).

it took, what, finally 4-5 long years and constant to the point of annoying protests and papers and evidence and facts for this initial bloodlust to be replaced with a, "huh, we went after the wrong guy all along?" (and here, well, that's rather obvious. The blaming of the Capes for the Crooks activity has always been the most glaringly silly and outrageous aspect of this "war").

and we're still there, blood mired in a blood soaked quagmire.

Our nation, in theory but rarely in practice, is supposed to protect the minority from the majority. It's not a simple this is what the people want, so they deserve to have it. People are fickle, easily swayed by colorful rhetoric and political bluster.

WHO GIVES A FUCK WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT CAP, FACE IT YOU FUCKING SIMP, YOU'RE OFTEN PROTECTING THE PEOPLE FROM THEMSELVES.

Why Millar was tasked to write this, I have no idea. In his best work, he's known for delivering what appear to be shocking moments that in a closer examination are always carefully set-up and meticulously detailed ("Chosen", "Superman: Red Son" and "Wanted" being the best examples).
This? Whole flap could've been resolved through, I dunno, talking about it? Having Cap talk to the people?

I dunno, maybe as a critique of post 9/11 paranoia and policy it works on some levels, Marvel giving the people what they think the people want, and thus, when the intellectual elite (*scoff*) at Marvel U feels public perception has changed enough they can have an "UnCivil War: Careful What you Wish For" sequel.

And the way that memo reads? C'mon, ALL Cap ends up concerned with is that the secret idents don't fall into the hands of the gov-mint? So you give 'em to a guy who, for all intents and purposes, is part and parcel of the gov-mint, especially if one goes with the tried 'n true "the business of America IS business?".

I find it hard to put my trust in a guy that'll use villains, a guy who collects hair samples of anyone who drops by for a visit...and that's not even delving into his alcoholic, fuck anything that swivels shtick...which, personally, two characteristics I tend to find just as untrustworthy as the first two instances...good 'peep to hang with, but I ain't leaving that drunken fuck alone with my gf, you know? Let alone trusting him with any secrets I might have. Shit, you know how alcoholics have big mouths, tend to blab a lot?

LET'S TRUST THAT GUY!

Ugggh.

So it looks like Joe Q's promise not to do 'event after event' ala the early 90s has already been broken now that we got World War Hulk coming.... Oh, and World War Hulk: Frontline too. Almost forgot about that one.

You guys seemed really riled up about this. My suggestion would be to stare at a blank wall (preferably white) for your entertainment.

And you Adam... YOU! You swore off these events a long time ago. So all your negativity about them has been proven true in your mind. Was it worth it then? To waste the countless minutes reading a mini series you probably didn't even purchase?

Personally, I don't have a problem with the ending. I felt that Cap reached a point where he knew things went too far. Part of what made Iron Man escalate his plans was Cap escalating his own. It had to stop, and if anyone was going to be able to stop the cycle before more people were killed, it would be Cap. He was after all the rallying point for the whole rebellion.

I am not sure how you guys wanted it to end. Should Cap have held Congress hostage until they repealed the law? Should the heroes have continued fighting until there was only one left? Should Loki have appeared out of no where claiming responsibility? Give me some alternatives here so I can freak out too!

I also like the storylines this begins in 616. I like that the Thunderbolts thing will eventually bite Tony on his big metallic ass. I like that for the first time in over 25 years, the Punisher might be on the verge of some kind of epiphany. Or how about Spiderman as hunted crook wearing the best designed costume in the history of ever?

Civil War was supposed to shake things up, and I think it did its job.

And as far as World War Hulk coming on the heels of Civil War so soon? I can't fucking wait. Not that I want to delve into a viper pit of bad crossovers, but this has been building so naturally for over two years, that I think the timing is perfect, especially from a character standpoint. Here the heroes of earth have already been through hell. Most except the new status quo of registration and then BOOM, suddenly we have an 800 Pound Gamma Irradiated gorilla in the room that throws everything into the shitter. Yeah HULK!

As a whole, yes. It was worth it. I actually thought the last two issues made it fun with a satisfying resolution, but also leaving open enough story potential for the future.

The problems I still have are basically that If it had been 12 issues instead of 7, as Millar originally suggested, then we wouldn't have needed CW: Frontline and there would've been enough room so that this wouldn't feel like the cliffs notes for a much larger story, and we could've had a bigger epilogue that included Cap in there, as intended.

Oh, er.... okay. Well despite my enjoyment of the mini, I agree.

Well I doubt he will stay dead. He is an icon after all, but I am still pretty numb about this. I have REALLY enjoyed what Brubaker has done with Cap over the last two years. Not just the stories, but the character of Steve Rogers. He'd become my favorite character in the Marvel U, so this is pretty horrible.

No doubt about the iconic status...it was like the 5th story on my local news this morning (slow night thankfully in Seattle), it's a little jarring to wake up to "IN OTHER NEWS, CAPTAIN AMERICA IS DEAD!!!!!"

He'll be back, but as an android or cyborg or something. Somebody will resurrect him and give him enhanced strength and some cool new weaponry in his shield.

DC killed Superman and brought him back. Marvel isn't going to let Cap stay dead. Heck, in the Marvel universe there are enough beings with godlike powers who could bring him back. Dr. Strange, I'm looking at you. Or Thor could go drag his soul back out of Hades (pardon the mixing of mythologies, but it's what Marvel does). Or Franklin Richards could create a pocket universe in which he didn't die and we'd be Back To Normal.

Sniper kills Cap? Lame.

Maaaaaaaaaaaaan, I blame Yahoo News for spoiling me first. Fuckers.

The only upside I could see to this is that they could let Captain America live on as a symbol, as a thing where "Captain Americas" start springing up all across the country, continuing to fight the Anti-Registration fight. Might be lame, but could be pretty cool.

My mom was going on and on about it. 'A fucking sniper??? Why couldn't he have died in battle or something' And I had to do the Airplane 'Calm down, get a hold of yourself!' thing.

I guess I'll hand it to Marvel again. We're all used to these temporary publicity stunts where someone dies for about 6 months maximum, but for some reason this has power to it. I'm still in shock...

You and thousands of others who are doing the same thing. Maybe you'll get cover price for it.

How much are the "Death of Superman" comics going for these days? Are they really all that collectible?

Capitain America's been torn apart
Now he's a court jester
With a broken heart
He said, "Turn me around
And take me back to the start
I must be losing my mind."

Hey, Captain America,

you're so fine you blow my mind,
Captain America.

Captain America is dead!

I need to go pay my respects, and honor him by heading to the comic shop and buying up six mylar sealed Captain America #25's to put on eBay when they run out....


You and thousands of others who are doing the same thing. Maybe you'll get cover price for it.

How much are the "Death of Superman" comics going for these days? Are they really all that collectible?


I really have to put up a [sarcasm] tag these days...



hhhmmm, i wonder if Burl was also being sarcastic about the abortion clinic thing? without emoticons it is just so hard to tell what people mean by what they say sometimes. :P :wink:

I don't do sarcasm. I am too innocent, too pure of heart.

Oh shit. That's how we honor him? Because I just torched an abortion clinic. I guess we all have our own way of expressing grief.


Because of you we have to have the baby now.

THANKS DOUCHE!!!!11
