Captain America Statue Unveiled In Brooklyn
Legendary Marvel Comics editor and writer Mark Gruenwald who famously had his ashes mixed with printers ink for a paperback comic-book collection now had more of his remains sprinkled on the newly-unveiled Captain America statue in Prospect Park Wednesday, thanks to his widow.
Catherine Schuller-Gruenwald, 62, of Manhattan scattered “two scoops of Gru” at the base of the 13-foot-tall statue following an unveiling ceremony in the park Wednesday nearly 20 years to the day after the comic genius’ death.
“With his extra ashes we dusted two scoops of Gru on the top of the sculpture,” Schuller-Gruenwald told the Post, adding that her late husband “threw himself into his work, literally.”
The 1-ton bronze statue – at the Children’s Corner, near the carousel – commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Brooklyn-born Steve Rogers character, better known as Captain America.
