As for the latter - well, do you expect the headline to be "comic book character dies"?
put out a story about this on Wednesday, under the headline "Shocking event for Captain America". They also included a spoiler warning at the start:
Editor's Note: The following story reveals information about the Marvel Comics' "Civil War" storyline and a key character. If you'd rather not know, stop reading now.
That warning doesn't quite go far enough, since it reveals things that happened after the end of the "Civil War" mini-series. However, CNN definitely get points for effort, so I'm not going to hold a small mistake against them. (They also referred to the event in the past tense rather than the future tense.)
