Howdy G-Man and the World's Greatest Tag Team.
I apologize for this lengthy post.
The first 2 comics I got when I was 4 Years old was X-Men and Captain America and since, I have always been a huge fanboy of Scott Summers and Steve Rogers. I also love dry white toast and vanilla ice cream...notice a pattern? With the newest issue of Cap, something very massive has happened. I am not one for quick emotional reactions but for the first time since reading comics as a adult, I am now having difficulty doing so. Superior Foes is one of my top 10 favorite books ever so I have enormous faith in Nick Spencer, but boy this is heavy. My question is, "Is nothing sacred?" Should a character's history be changed to such a point to where they are not even the same character? If so, then why not use a diferent character? Old Man Logan is geat example of keeping the original caharcter intact, but also telling geat stories that you could not otherwise with the original. I know its WAY early to judge this story, but I can not help but feel the truth is what it appears. All the Captain America merchandise I have throughout my home now fills me with grief.
