“Captain America must die!” Grant Morrison’s most famous Batman arc was titled “Batman Must Die!” Was this where he got the idea?
This extended storyline represented the first time Captain America took off his costume out of shame and anger towards where his country had gone. It’s the first time he becomes Nomad…
And, of course, it ends with him back in the old duds.
After this, Steve Englehart brings back Red Skull, Faustus, and a host of other classic Cap villains for his last Captain America scripts…Steve had a long, respected run on the title. After him, there’s a few fill-ins and one-offs before Marvel brings back….Jack Kirby!
