Now I don't know about you, but an american symbol carrying a gun doesn't seem right to me, so I just wanted to know what everyone thinks.

here's the story

The American Marine and Soldier carry guns, and they are worthy symbols of America

And the shield is made of vibranium. Which is a composite of adamantium & another alloy that escapes my mind.

so there's a new captain america.........

spoilers if you don't want to know what happens in Captain America #34


Captain America lives again

Captain America is back and he's packing heat.

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.

Fans were devastated when Steve Rogers - a 1941 creation of artists Joe Simon and Jack Kirby - was gunned down on the steps of a courthouse last March. It was the industry's biggest shocker since Superman temporarily went up, up and away to the great Fortress of Solitude in the sky in 1992.

Many pundits believed the death of a character draped in the American flag was a thinly veiled political allegory.

"It's an experiment," said Marvel Entertainment editor in chief Joe Quesada. "Every day, every story, I'm ready for backlash."

There's bound to be a backlash when fans see Bucky Barnes, the new Cap, toss the famous shield and whip out a firearm.

"It's a little jarring for some people to see that," said the book's writer, Ed Brubaker. "[But] people forget that Captain America carried a gun a lot in World War II. Every three covers there was a shot of Captain America with a machine gun or a flamethrower - or an atom bomb."

Chris Martens, 23, a student-teacher from Queens, likes the makeover. "I know a lot of people are upset about that, but at the same time, he's a soldier - to think that he hasn't used a gun or he hasn't killed anyone is silly," Martens said.

Some fans still haven't gotten over the shock of seeing one of their all-time favorites get assassinated in a plot hatched by his archnemesis, the Red Skull. "They're icons - leave 'em alone," says Hector Rambla, a 61-year-old Vietnam vet who has been reading Captain America since the '60s.

Quesada admits Rogers, the scrawny kid from the lower East Side who was injected with Super Soldier serum and turned into one of the most recognizable characters in pop culture, may yet return.

After all, Captain America has appeared in an estimated 210 million copies in 75 countries and will be featured in an upcoming movie.

"Ultimately, comics are very democratic," Quesada says. "Fans vote with their dollars."

I don't know much about this guy other than he was Cap's sidekick, but i'll try to give this a read, seems like a interesting character

still not sure about the gun thing , but I'll see where it goes
