He popped up in the comic from time to time and the last we heard from him he'd been shot by BUCKY AMERICA and fell off the Hoover dam. They never recovered his body. I knew he was still around.
With the advent of NEW Marvel titles popping up it was decided to end the current run of course. So they could start all over with a number one. Sure enough in the final issue written by Ed Brubaker and illustrated by artistic phenom Steve Epting they wrapped up the last chapter of the Captain America of the 1950's.
I still hope that with rehabilitation and guidance Burnside can actually become a Shield agent or some other Patriotic hero. He's too great a character not to use again.
