Captain America

Steve Rogers was a 98-pound weakling when he was chosen to take part in Project: Rebirth, an experimental Super Soldier program during World War II. The experiment was a success, and Rogers was transformed into Captain America. After years fighting the Nazis (and Hydra) in World War II, Cap was lost (and presumed dead) saving New York City from a deadly bomb, then discovered and revived years later by the Avengers. On the printed page (where he was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby) and onscreen (where he’s starred in two solo features and two ‘Avengers’ titles), Captain America has been one of the world’s most famous and beloved superheroes for more than 70 years. He’s currently portrayed by Chris Evans.
