Comic hero Captain America dies

(BBC): Superhero Captain America has been killed off after appearing in US comic books for 66 years. The character, who appears in the Captain America comic book, was created in 1941 to build up patriotic feeling during World War II.
Co-creator Joe Simon told the New York Daily News: "It's a hell of a time for him to go. We really need him now."

Meant to be symbolic, perhaps?
