Captain America

R. I. P. Captain America. You will be missed.In the comics lore, this hero was born Steve Rogers on Independence Day, 1917, in New York's Lower East Side. Growing up a scrawny illustrator, Rogers enlists in the U.S. Army, where medical testing turns him into a super soldier against the Nazis.

"He sacrifices himself to save someone else, so it really stood up to the ideals that he stood for all along," Buckley said.

The decision has already angered the character's creator, Joe Simon, who told the New York Daily News that the death comes at a time when "we really need him now."
