    It was poorly rationalized. Something about how Cap would have wanted to be able to rest in peace. He never struck me as a man who enjoyed his solitude, though, and if he didn't enjoy being an inspiration to everyone then he probably wouldn't have been Captain America.

    Really, with Tony keeping the shield and being in a position to keep the body, it's all kind of pointing to an attempted resurrection somewhere down the line.

    Yeah, that doesn't make a whole lot of sense... Arlinton is pretty much exactly where Captain Freaking America should be buried.

    Yeah, makes sense to put the real body of a guy who's pissed off probably not only a huge amount of villains but also stands as the #1 enemy for almost every neo-Nazi and white-supremacist group in a public cementary rather then put him to rest in someplace secret.

    I hate Ronald Reagan, but I'm not about to dig up his body and rape his corpse. In fact, when has something like that every happened, aside from the time Charlie Chaplin's body was held for ransom?

    I guess I could buy that if you were arguing about supervillians trying to snatch the corpse, but Arlinton is primarily a militaray cemetary and has armed guards at all times to prevent that kind of jackassery. Also, if you want to keep the body safe, setting it loose in the artic isn't exactly keeping tabs on it.

    Who would you rather have guarding the body - a couple of armed military guys or Namor?

    If I had to wager money I would say we are destined to see Captain America back amongst the living within a year, maybe two on the outside.

    Though I would like to think that Marvel has the balls to kill some of it's older "trademark" characters off in exchange for more "modern" ones. I doubt it though.

    I think there was a quote saying they had at least 2 years stories planned without Cap.

    Plus, you know, the super soldier serum is still being fought over, etc.
    The mummified corpse of Steve Rogers would make an awesome conversation piece though.

    They have MVP's corpse for that.

    It actually turned out that MVP wasn't a super-powered human, but rather an innocent kid in peak physical condition with an impressive physiology akin to what the super-soldier serum transformed a skrawny Steve Rogers' body into.

    MVP only had good genetics, though, and had to work to achieve his body's full potential whereas Cap's muscles came overnight.

    But I guess he trained in his garage, because everyone thought he was a superhero just because he was a great athlete.

    Yeah, Ed Brubaker said this.

    I would expect Cap to probably come back around issue #50 of his series.

    They drafted an ordinary kid into the Initiative! What's wrong with these people?
    A lot.

    They thought his Grandfather had Serumed himself, and he had somehow inherited that.

    Which seems kinda easily torn apart, since I'm pretty sure the doc was an old man by time he'd made the serum, and he didn't have time to invent viagra.

    Its it bad that I'm hoping for the entire thing to be a skrull operation at this point. Seriously.

    The idea of a bunch of Skrulls training a bunch of super-heroes seems counter productive. But the Initiative does have that feeling of ineptitude that only the Skrulls can provide... that being said it is somehow still a really good comic. go figure.

    When it was called "The Champions" I was like "pass".

    But then I see the ad for it in the lastest Marvel comics and I'm like "'The Order'? That sounds better. And it's by Matt Fraction? Oh baby."
