    Captain America has undertaken his last mission — at least for now.


    The venerable superhero is killed in the issue of his namesake comic that hit stands Wednesday, the New York Daily News reported. On the new edition's pages, a sniper shoots down the shield-wielding hero as he leaves a courthouse.

    It ends a long run for the stars-and-stripes-wearing character, created in 1941. Over the years, some 210 million copies of Captain America comic books, published by New York-based Marvel Entertainment Inc., have been sold in 75 countries.

    But resurrections are not unknown 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.

    "We really need him now," said Simon, 93, who worked with artist Jack Kirby to devise Captain America as a foe for Adolf Hitler.

    I hope when Marvel resurrect him, he'll have grown some brass. Pfft, fighting the Registration Act throught the courts? What a joke of a superhero.

    :dance: ...good riddance! :dance:

    I was just being sarcastic about the Cap, since I know he'll be back eventually! It's just a money making exercise.

    And uhm, speaking as a guy, if that were me in the sig I'd never leave the bedroom. That's Klara Koukalova, czech tennis star!

    :p

    Yes, unfortunately she now goes by Klara Zakopalova, but she's forever Kookie to me. Oh, and to add insult to injury, since her marriage, she's dropped out of the top-100 and now needs to qualify for major tournaments!

    *sniff*

    Marriage almost always means death to a tennis player's career. It happens time and time again. They just can't afford to split their time and effort with anyone else and still play well.
