Joe Simon, co-creator of the comic book superhero Captain America, has died. He was 98.

From the article:
Simon and artist Jack Kirby, who ran a studio, developed the character in the early 1940s and worked outside the box to develop a distinct design.

"Together, the team created Captain America as well as long list of characters, including The Newsboy Legion and The Boy Commandos," a statement Thursday from Simon's family said.

Rest in peace.

Lord, have mercy. Memory eternal.

I believe in One God, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

May the Lord have mercy on his soul and grant him eternal rest.

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
