Ta-Nehisi Coates is upset that Marvel's bringing back Captain America. I'm upset that they're using the word "Vonnegut-esque" in such a way that I have no idea what they mean.

But Marvel won't disclose how he rises from the dead. Executive Editor Tom Brevoort teases that the character has been "on a Vonnegut-esque metaphysical journey," including some soul-searching about his place in the world.
Captain America meets his creator? Becomes unstuck in time? Visits Dresden? Ends the world by accident? Evolves into a dolphin? Becomes trapped in some other thinly sketched but darkly humorous situation? Has great ideas, "if only he could write"? Tell me what it is you're trying to say.
