COMICS: Rick Remender Discusses The Shocking Death In CAPTAIN AMERICA #10
Rick Remender's very different take on the "Marvel NOW!" Captain America series has already turned off some fans who were used to Ed Brubaker's espionage heavy approach, but could this major character death be the final nail in the coffin for those same readers? [MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD]
Today's issue of Captain America featured the death of Captain America's longtime love interest, Sharon Carter. This is sure to be an extremely controversial change to the series as the character played a major role in Ed Brubaker's critically acclaimed run (she was in fact the one who fired the fatal shot that would kill Steve Rogers after Civil War). The "Dimension Z" storyline has already abandoned the espionage aspects of the series in order to focus on a sci-fi tone, but will this latest development be enough to turn you off the series for good? Or, on the other hand, do you think this is yet another smart move by writer Rick Remender? Check out his comments below and then be sure to click on the link at the bottom of the page to read the interview in full!
"Again, it goes back to Steve spending his past 12 years in Dimension Z and suffering the loss of his adopted son. Also, spoilers here for those that haven’t read #10, but he also saw the death of Sharon Carter.
The death of Sharon isn’t something Steve will be able to recover from very easily. He’s been through a lot of loss recently, but he’s needed. Cap is need. So Steve Rogers stands up no matter how hollow or shattered he is. And he fights forward, but also sees his own limitations. And he’s going to experience those limitations.
It’s a brand new day for Cap starting with Captain America #11 – a brand new era, in fact. It’s the first step in what I have planned coming next."
