O Captain! My Captain! You're dead

O Captain! My Captain! You're dead:

"So long, Steve Rogers, we hardly knew ye.
Steve Rogers, of course, is the civilian identity of Captain America, the flag-wearing, shield-throwing superhero who, in the latest issue of his monthly comic, was seemingly killed by a sniper's bullet.
Captain America first appeared in comic books in 1941 when then-scrawny Rogers was injected with the 'super-soldier serum' to help fight the Nazis. Stan Lee brought him back in the 1960s, explaining his longevity by saying he had been cryogenically frozen in ice. The Captain has been a mainstay of the Marvel Comics universe since he thawed. "
