- Beam Me Up, Scotty!: Many other Marvel comics, and media reporting on Steve's death, said he died as a result of Civil War. Although his arrest at the end of it put him at the site of his assassination, he was killed by the Red Skull and his henchmen in a scheme wholly unrelated to Civil War. Word of God says the plan was to always kill Steve, but Civil War sped the plan up.
