Captain America: Reborn - Ed Brubaker

I really liked that Brubaker took over Captain America as he managed to turn this symbol of America into something it never was to me: an interesting comic. But all this craziness of Cap getting assassinated and now coming back from the dead (don't tell me that was a spoiler; welcome to the world of comics) is just getting out of hand. Why couldn't we stick with the original Captain fighting terrorists and growing as a character?
