Captain America Reborn

Nobody stays dead in comics. *

It is always both a very exciting and a very disappointing experience when comic book cliches turn out to be true. Well, it happened again today with the special Monday comic book release of Captain America: Reborn. Yeah, as you might guess from the title, Steve Rogers is coming back from the dead.

Two and a half years ago, under mind control, Captain America's secret agent girlfriend shot him in the chest multiple times. We had a body, we had no pulse or heartbeat, and the body was buried in the Arctic wastes - don't ask. Apparently it may not have happened the way we saw it or the way the girlfriend remembers it. As long as Mephisto isn't involved...

Reborn is a five-issue monthly mini-series starting today, with the regular Captain America title taking a hiatus until it's done. Need to find a comic book shop near you? Try here or call 1-888-COMIC-BOOK.

* except for Ben Parker and Thomas and Martha Wayne. For the moment...



  1. Ahhh, but what will this mean for Bucky America?

    I've only been interested in the title since young James came in from the cold.

  2. I agree, Betty, I liked CA before but loved it with James in the title role. Complicating matters is the persistent rumor of that other female Bucky showing up soon. Doesn't seem like there's room for James anywhere soon. :-(

  3. Don't forget the autopsy as well. I think there might be 2 Caps for awhile, at least there might be according to Breevort.
