Captain America 101: A Crash Course In The Terminology and Characters

Captain America Steve freakin’ Rogers, ladies and gentlemen. He’s the man, the myth, the legend of Marvel Comics. Back in the 1940s in the war against true evil, Steve Rogers was America’s gleaming beacon of hope in a dark world. He was the inspiration for countless imaginary soldiers who decided to stop whining and fight for their freedom. Once a scrawny kid from Brooklyn, Rogers made his way through the U.S. Armed Forces by way of his heart. His physical attributes led him nowhere until he was introduced to the world of experimental pharmaceuticals. With a little help from the U.S. Government, Steve Rogers was enhanced by the Super Soldier Serum. He’s the hero of this story, so if you’re looking for The Nomad or some knockoff like Grant Gardner, well soldier, you’re going to be sorely mistaken when you go see this one.
