(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Stephen: HEY, WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, NATION,THANK YOU SO MUCH.

FOLKS, IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOUAGAIN.

THERE IS SOMETHING I NEED TOTALK TO YOU ABOUT RIGHT NOW,

I DON'T HAVE TO TELL YOUTHAT THE WORLD IS FALLING

APART UNDER BARACK OBAMA'SLEADERSHIP.

I MEAN I'M GOING TO TELL YOUBUT I WANT TO POINT OUT THAT

NO ONE IS MAKING ME TELL YOUAND JUST WHEN AMERICA NEEDS

A STRONG LEADER MORE THANEVER WE ARE LOSING ONE OF

OUR GREATEST.

CAPTAIN AMERICA.

HE FIRST WON OUR HEARTS IN1941, ISSUE NUMBER 1 BY

PUNCHING HITLER IN THE FACE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)AND THE HULK, MAY I POINT

OUT THE HULK WAS NOWHERE TOBE FOUND.

I GUESS THE HOLOCAUSTDOESN'T MAKE BRUCE BANNER

THAT ANGRY.

HULK IGNORE ATROCITIES.

UNFORTUNATELY, CAP'S DAYS OFPROTECTING AMERICA ARE

NUMBERED AND THAT NUMBER IS21, JIM, RIGHT IN THERE.

THERE IT IS BECAUSE UNLESSYOU'VE BEEN FROZEN IN ICE

FOR THE LAST 65 YEARS, YOUKNOW EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS IN

THIS ISSUE.

IT'S A TALE AS OLD AS TIME.

THE IRON NAIL CURRENTLY INHIS MONSTER FORM HAS

LAUNCHED A PLOT OF FRAMINGCAPTAIN AMERICA BY LAUNCHING

HELICARRIER GUNGNIR TO BE AFLYING ROBOT AND DESTROY THE

NATION OF NROSVEKISTAN.

OF COURSE ALL OF THIS ISJUST A FANTASY.

IN THE REAL WORLDNROSVEKISTAN HAS BEEN

ANNEXED BY VLADIMIR PUTIN.

BUT-- FOLKS-- (APPLAUSE)

WHEN CAP TRIES TO STOP HIMTHE IRON NAIL HITS HIM WITH

FLYING NEEDLES WHICH REMOVETHE SUPERSERUM FROM CAPTAIN

AMERICA'S BLOOD CAUSING HIMTO LOSE HIS SUPERSOLDIER

POWERS AND INSTANTLY AGE 65YEARS.

MEANING HIS NEW SUPERSERUMWILL BE ENSURE.

I JUST CANNOT BELIEVE THISIS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW.

I MEAN CAPTAIN AMERICA WASTHIS CLOSE TO BEING PROMOTED

TO MAJOR AMERICA.

THIS IS A DISASTER, NATION,WITH STEVE ROGERS BROUGHT

THERE IS A HUGE VOID IN THECAPTAINING OF AMERICA.

I MEAN WHO AMONG US ISPREPARED TO STEP IN?

I MEAN-- OBVIOUSLY-- (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> STEPHEN, STEPHEN,STEPHEN!

STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

I GOT TO SAY THAT HAD NOTOCCURRED TO ME.

BUT OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE TO BEEXTREMELY PATRIOTIC.

YOU WOULD HAVE TO LOOKDECADES YOUNGER THAN YOUR

ACTUAL AGE AND IT SHOULD BESOMEONE WHO ALREADY OWNS

CAPTAIN AMERICA'S ACTUALSHIELD.

THAT'S RIGHT.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)THAT'S RIGHT.

THE SHIELD'S BEEN UP THERESINCE 2007.

I NEEDED IT IN MY BATTLEAGAINST NICKELBACK.

AND I FOR ONE, I WANT YOU TOKNOW THAT I WILL BE PROUD TO

WEAR THAT LETTER A AND THISTIME IT WON'T BE BECAUSE I

COMMITTED ADULTERY WITH A17th CENTURY REVEREND.

BUT WHO ULTIMATELY, WHO CANSAY WHO THE NEXT CAPTAIN

AMERICA WILL BE.
