The New York Daily News revealed a major spoiler for the latest issue of Captain America, telling its readers who would be taking up the shield:
Less than a year after the legendary star-spangled superhero was killed off in his comic book, his former teenage sidekick is being promoted to fill those big red boots in the latest issue, out Wednesday.Of course, the identity of the new Cap hardly comes as a shock, as it has been speculated for months.
It's just funny that non-comic media have a hard time with the concept of "spoilers" for comics.
And anyway, I don't think anyone will now not buy the book just because they found out the new Captain America's identity. In the end, this title isn't fueled by cheap gimmicks showcasing a series of character deaths and rebirths -- it actually has a good writer.
