Steve Rogers, unable to enlist in the US army during WWII, was handpicked to be the test subject of a “super soldier formula.” Although the experiment was a success, a Nazi spy killed the doctor behind the experiment. Rogers was given the identity of “Captain America,” and served his country as a costumed hero while also enlisting in his civilian identity. Soon, he was teamed up with the young base mascot, Bucky, who joined Captain America in a similar costumed identity. Cap and Bucky fought many war criminals, especially the Nazi agent, the Red Skull, and even joined other heroes at the time, forming the Invaders, the Liberty Legion, and the All-Winners Squad. Cap went through many shields at the time, finally being given the indestructible one that has become his signature weapon. During a later battle, however, Cap and Bucky tried to stop the getaway plane of Baron Zemo, and Bucky was killed. Cap himself was thrown into the icy waters of the pacific, and entered a state of hibernation, frozen.
His frozen figure was being worshiped by native Inuit peoples of America and found by a rampaging Sub-Mariner, who threw the ice floe into the ocean, and it floated to the vicinity of New York harbor. He was revived by the formative group of heroes, the Avengers, and soon acclimated to our “future” and became one of their long-standing members, eventually leading them for a while, and soon found a new sidekick in Rick Jones and new government sanction. Rogers also created his secret identity, becoming an illustrator and later developing a romance with Bernie Rosenthal.
Captain America only left the Avengers when his own adventures warranted, but often returned and often in a leadership role. Earlier, he had used Rick Jones’ Teen Brigade to keep abreast of trouble, and once formed a nationwide phone hotline. He later dissolved his relationship with Jones, and formed new alliances with the Falcon, and a one-time successor to Bucky, now known as Nomad, but time and again returned to operating solo.
Later, his often-resurrected enemy, the Red Skull, resurrected himself in a cloned body of Rogers’, and earned a spot on a government agency, one in which demanded ownership over the identity and property of “Captain America.” Electing to be a free agent, Rogers quit his role as Captain America, and instead created a similar identity, the Captain, complete with a similar shield provided by fellow Avenger, Tony Stark. The Captain took temporary leave of the Avengers, and reestablished allies of Falcon, Nomad, and soon, Demolition Man. Ultimately, Rogers was confronted by the Skull, who he soon defeated, and he was reinstated as Captain America when his replacement (now, USAgent) proved unsuitable. During this time, he would develop a relationship with ex-criminal Diamondback, although she later left him, not escaping her criminal past.
Later still, he would rejoin his Avengers, only to be a part of the Kree-Skrull war, in which several Avengers deserted him to kill the Supreme Intelligence. His faith in the Avengers’ ideals shaken, Rogers soon took another leave of absence of the team, but soon returned, and in time for their fight against the villain, Onslaught, in which he apparently died with other heroes in defeating his menance.
Captian America was soon returned to our reality with the rest of the heroes, emerging in Japan. Rogers continues to champion for his coountries ideals as our flag-clad champion.
