Marvel heroes struggle to come to grips with the death of Captain America following Kubler-Ross's stages of grieving ( )
  Jamichuk | May 22, 2017 |
This follows the Death of Captain America and shows how those who knew him dealt with it. It deals with it via five stories each highlighting one of the stages of grief: denial (Wolverine), anger (Avengers), bargaining (Hawkeye), depression (Spider-Man), and acceptance (Iron Man).

I thought Wolverine's comment to Spider-man about how it feels to lose someone was especially poignant. ( )

An interesting concept and a great mashup of writers and artists to bring both sides of the Civil War to bear on the Death of Captain America. ( )
  JonathanCrites | Mar 16, 2015 |
This is a collection of five one-shots, showing how a variety of Marvel superheroes react to the death of Captain America. Since I haven't (yet) read any of the Civil War series, this maybe had less emotional impact on me than it would have otherwise, but I thought Falcon's eulogy and Wolverine and Bucky's angry conversation were both quite well done.

A series of stories following the death of Captain America, and how the rest of the Marvel heroes respond to his death. Cap was never one of my favorite Marvel characters - too much of a goody-goody. But there was some inspiration in seeing the eminent Jeph Loeb handle depicting the respect and admiration that this iconic character brought out in his partners in battle, whether they fought beside him or against him.
