10 deaths of Captain America, real and fictional

Death in comics has ceased to create the desired effect, in my opinion, a very long time ago. Only an inexperienced reader can take seriously the death of a hero – more “experienced” readers have lost this ability (unfortunately).
The ComicVine portal has published a list of deaths – real and fictional – of Captain America. I hasten to bring to you this very information for acquaintance, entertainment and reflection.

1. Avengers # 4 (1964) 10 deaths of Captain America, real and fictional
Cap’s first “death” occurred in 1964, when the character joined the Avengers for the first time. Until that moment, Cap actually took part in the struggle against Russia and the Communists after the Second World War. He never died, just stopped appearing on the pages of comics.

However, in order to heighten the drama and create the image of a real American hero, his past was changed and a famous episode was added with an airplane explosion over the Atlantic Ocean and a long stay in the ice.

2. Captain America # 111 (1969) 10 deaths of Captain America, real and fictional Continue reading

3 personal “cant” of the “Official Marvel Comic Book Collection”

At the beginning of this year, the French publishing house Ashet, with the support of the Italian Panini, launched an attack on the Russian comic book market. On the shelves of shops and supermarkets behind the glasses of small kiosks appeared books of the international “Official Marvel Comic Book Collection”. Readers had a huge reason for joy. They were not only able to receive books in Russian, the publication of which was difficult to dream of, but also received them in large numbers and with a frequency of once every two weeks. Buyers became less happy when the comics fell into their hands: typos, poor translation, uninteresting content, etc. It turned out that releasing quickly and a lot was possible only carelessly.
In order to immediately avoid some misunderstanding, the author of the text intends to explain. Firstly, it Continue reading

Incomplete atlas of fantastic maps

In the second issue of The Keepers (comic book series), masked adventurers gather around a map of the United States. It shows in close-up the geographical regions marked as “Anti-war demonstration”, “Black riots”, “Drugs”, “promiscuous sexual relations”. Captain Metropolis perceives this card as a challenge to the Fighters against crime, as he called his squad. This card for some of the Guardians symbolizes the decline of America, which, in their opinion, they must save, although others believe that there is nothing more to tinker with. Edward Blake, The Comedian, ignores Captain Metropolis. Turning away, resting his legs on the table, he reads a newspaper with the headline “France is leaving NATO”, turning the page, he will set fire to the map of Captain Metropolis. The comedian likes to counteract the rest of the keepers by laughing in their faces. He is a cynic. The reaction to America’s map for Crime Fighters was Continue reading
