Captain America Dies -- What Does His Will Say?

Captain_americaThe superhero world continues to reel from the untimely death of Captain America (Steve Rogers) at the hands of Sharon Carter who fired a pistol into Captain America's stomach after she was hypnotized by Dr. Faustus.  See Events Leading Up to the Death of Captain America.

The terms of Steve Rogers' will are starting to come to light.  Here is what we know so far:

  • Steve's will leaves his shield to Stephen Colbert.  Mr. Colbert has accepted the shield and has stated, "“Cap? I hope I make you proud.”  See Stephen Colbert on the Death of Captain America, March 15, 2007.
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. (Supreme Headquarters International Espionage Law-enforcement Division) is conducting an investigation regarding the authenticity and/or validity of the will.
  • There is some speculation that Steve is not actually dead.

Special thanks to Neil E. Hendershot of the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania law firm of Goldberg Katzman, P.C., who also authors the PA Elder, Estate & Fiduciary Law Blog, for recommending that I report on  "these weighty matters of great significance to all of us."
