Last night on the COLBERT REPORT, Stephen read a letter from Marvel Editor-In-Chief JOE QUESADA, in which he was given Captain America's shield:
Dear Stephen,

As Editor in Chief of Marvel, I am burdened with the handling of our characters’ estates in the sad event that a hero should perish before his time.

Captain America’s will was read last Friday, and while heavy-hearted, I am proud to announce the Star-Spangled Avengers has bequeathed his most valuable possession, his indestructible shield, to the only man he believed had the red, white, and blue balls to carry the mantle, Stephen Colbert.

Welcome to the Marvel Universe.

Joe Quesada
Colbert accepted the shield and knocked it with his knuckles.

“That’s the sound of indestructible Wakandan Vibranium. I take this responsibility very seriously, and I promise to use this shield only to fight for justice....and to impress girls. Ladies, anybody want to touch it? Cap, I hope I make you proud."

Hahaha, awesome.

it was a fun idea,...as long as it stays that way.
There better not be an episode of The Colbert Report, where,.."oh NO!!! Cap's Shield is missing!!!!"
-and the next day Cap shows up in comics as "CAP"
