Captain America is dead. That other super hero known as The Snarling Marmot captures the point.

From an Associated Press report:
A sniper shoots down the shield-wielding hero as he leaves a courthouse, according to the New York Daily News.

It ends a long run for the stars-and-stripes-wearing character, created in 1941 to incarnate patriotic feeling during World War II. Over the years, an estimated 210 million copies of "Captain America" comic books, published by New York-based Marvel Entertainment Inc., have been sold in a total of 75 countries.
RIP, Steve Rogers.
