Official Press Release

Civil War's deadly aftermath has taken the life of Captain America as Steve Rogers was gunned down by a sniper in the pages of Captain America #25. The shockwave from his death has been felt across America and resulted in a multitude of mainstream coverage.

The story broke in the Daily News and quickly news spread to other outlets such as CNN, FOX News, MSNBC, and USA Today. Variety even ran an obituary-style article saluting the fallen comic hero! And across the country, over 50 radio and television news stations ran stories detailing the passing of the Star-Spangled Avenger.

Next week's Civil War: The Confession details the last moments of Captain America's life and this April and May, the ramifications of Cap's death and the responses of Marvel's greatest heroes will be seen in the pages of the five part Fallen Son: Death of Captain America event.

In order to maintain the secrecy of Captain America's death, Marvel was unable to reveal the full titles of the five one-shots until now, which are:

Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America – Wolverine

Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America - Avengers

Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America – Captain America

Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America – Spider-Man

Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America – Iron Man

The actual covers, including the commemorative trade dress, of these one-shots are seen here for the first time.

Retailers should take note and check the Marvel Mailer for a special incentive on Fallen Son the likes of which Marvel have never offered before.

Captain America will continue to be published despite the very real death of Steve Rogers. In May, Captain America #26 will reveal the aftermath of his death, beginning with the autopsy of his body. This is no hoax - Captain America, Steve Rogers, is dead.

Marvel wishes to thank their retail partners and comic internet press for making this event such a resounding success.
