I have (admittedly vague) memories of Bucky Barnes having taken over for Steve Rogers several decades ago as well.

It's roughly the Marvel Equivalent of The Wally West Syndrome.


Bucky didn't come back until 2006.

"No one in comics stays dead except Bucky, DC Comics' Jason Todd, and Spider-Man's Uncle Ben," used to be pretty much a rule for comics. Now the only person who hasn't come back is Uncle Ben (there has been an alternate reality version of Uncle Ben, though).

But Steve Rogers, the original Captain America, is currently still dead. Someone else is just taking his place, using the name Captain America. This has happened before (back when Steve Rogers was in his "Nomad" stage).

The fact that people from the non-comics world are hearing about htis is kind of odd--these things happen all the time in comics, where people die, "die," or are replaced. I mean, it's not like the Superman comics or Captain America comics ever intended everyone to die and the comics to stop being published. These deaths are just part of the ongoing stories in the books.


The new Cap doesn't have a cape, either.
