!!''Capt. Steven "Steve" Rogers (ComicBook/CaptainAmerica)''
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/captain_america_avengers_3075.png]]
->''"I don't want to kill anybody. [[BullyHunter I don't like bullies; I don't care where they're from."]]''

->'''Portrayed By''': Creator/ChrisEvans
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' / ''Film/TheAvengers'' / ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''

A sickly young man from Brooklyn turned into a perfect soldier by a government project. Unfortunately, the creator of the project was murdered, leaving Rogers as the only result of the project. Because of this, he was initially used as a propaganda tool to sell war bonds. He eventually earned his stripes as a soldier by rescuing an entire platoon from a HYDRA factory, where he first encountered the Red Skull. After defeating the Red Skull, Cap crashed his Valkyrie aircraft into a glacier where he went into a hibernation state and written off as KIA for nearly 70 years before being found by SHIELD in the modern day. His weapon of choice is a Vibranium shield designed by Howard Stark that can absorb all energy directed at it, making it ideal as both protection and as a projectile (as it does not lose energy when it makes contact with another surface when thrown).
-----
* {{Adorkable}}: Even ''after'' receiving the Super Soldier serum.
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted. Pre-transformation Steve Rogers is terribly intimidated by women (owing to his small stature), even afraid to ask girls to dance with him. His apprehension remains after receiving the Super Soldier serum, even when women throw themselves at him. His brief macking with the secretary may very well be his first kiss.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Played both in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' and ''Film/TheAvengers''. It takes Steve infiltrating a HYDRA base and rescuing a battalion's worth of soldiers for others to take him seriously in the former; in the latter, it takes him a brief skirmish (and a torn arm or two) with the invading aliens for the New York authorities to listen to what he's trying to tell them.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassAdorable: A sweet-tempered, well-mannered and kind-hearted BoyNextDoor who just happens to also possess a body rebuilt to the pinnacle of human perfection.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: No actual super powers aside from his superhuman physique, and he started out as a scrawny kid before becoming a SuperSoldier.
* BashBrothers: As a kind, noble and courageous man, Steve was already quick to earn Thor's respect: it's in the fires that raged through the battle of Manhattan that they ''truly'' become brothers.
** Also with Tony Stark after earning each other's respect through fighting side by side.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's one of the nicest, sweetest guys in the world, but may God help you if you decide to hurt innocents.
* BlessedWithSuck: His metabolism is four times faster than the average human, so he can't [[DrowningMySorrows drown his sorrows in the bottle]] when [[spoiler:Bucky]] dies.
** NeverGetsDrunk
* BoyNextDoor: A total sweetheart to boot.
* BrooklynRage: While he's not bad tempered or violent, Steve still has the absolute determination and utter refusal to turn down a challenge that goes with this trope. "If you start running, they'll never let you stop."
* BullyHunter: "I don't like bullies. I don't care where they're from."
* ButtMonkey: He was stuck doing cheesy war propaganda for a while after he became a Super Soldier. For bonus points, he even drew himself as a performing monkey.
* TheCape: Initially invoked for the USO show and after the timeskip he wonders if this sort of hero is old-fashioned. Regardless, he's a great example.
* TheCaptain: Phillips refers to him as "Captain Rogers" in his letter to the Senator, it's safe to assume he does.
* CaptainGeographic: Take a wild guess.[[note]]What? No! Not [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_colors_of_national_flags#Red.2C_white_and_blue Puerto Rico and Liberia!]][[/note]]
* CaptainPatriotic: At first, the USO shuffles Steve into this role as a mascot for War Bonds sales, but he soon becomes the noble, heroic, no-surrender strategist we all know him to be.
* TheChainsOfCommanding: Not only does Steve have to adapt to a world where everything he knows is 70 years gone or dead, but has to get a [[Film/{{Thor}} Norse god]], an [[Film/IronMan egotistical genius]] who's jealous of the relationship between Cap and his father, and a [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk scientist with... anger issues]] to work together as something resembling a team alongside two [[{{Hawkeye}} hard-nosed]] [[ComicBook/BlackWidow assassins]], while earning all of their respect and he succeeds.
* ChasteHero: See AManIsNotAVirgin above.
* TheComicallySerious
* CovertPervert: He gets grabbed into a kiss and doesn't exactly protest. He immediately assumes a word he's never heard before has something to do with sex. Yeah, he's not innocent.
* {{Determinator}}: His signature trait -- he doesn't give up. ''Ever''.
* DorkKnight: Both ''absolutely'' noble and heroic and kind of a huge puppy-dog of a man. Even post-defrosting (when he's obviously had a tough time coping with the modern day and the personal tragedies he suffered getting there), he's at all times earnest, humble, kind-hearted and devoted to defending the innocent.
* FakeUltimateHero: At first, after Steve takes the serum. But then he [[BecomingTheMask becomes the mask.]]
* FightsLikeANormal: Captain America is easily confused as a BadassNormal, but he isn't given that he has a super serum that gives him the ability to be at the peak of human condition.
* FireForgedFriends: With both The Avengers and his friends from the war. Especially [[spoiler:Tony Stark]].
* {{Foil}}: To Tony Stark, playing the old-fashioned idealist to Tony's selfish cynic. For example, while both are shown to be dolls of the public (featured at big show events complete with dancing girls), Steve is visibly uncomfortable with the spotlight and would rather be on the front lines whereas Tony eats up the attention.
* FolkHero: Steve is this in the Marvel universe; he's a LivingLegend with, apparently, his own merchandise and even trading cards (as Coulson can certainly attest). He seems taken aback by their existence in modern times.
* GeniusBruiser: Steve has intelligence to complement his physical ability, though he doesn't have an advanced education. He's an excellent tactician, learns quickly, and in one case was almost instantly able to determine that he was being deceived simply by listening to a few moments of an indistinct baseball game that he had attended. His artistic skills come into play as well, as he's able to memorize and accurately pinpoint all of HYDRA's bases on a map of Europe after seeing a brief glimpse.
* GenreSavvy: Not at first, but by ''Film/TheAvengers'' it's pretty clear he's learned from experience. He quickly figures out that Loki gave up too easy, and even if he claims that they should just follow their orders, [[spoiler:he still goes to check and beats Tony to the punch on calling out Fury]].
* GentleGiant: Post lab procedure.
* TheGoodCaptain
* GoodIsNotSoft: A nice, sweet boy. Who over two movies, has thrown people out of airborne aircrafts, set them on fire, and hacked opponents' arms off.
* GoodIsOldFashioned: But not obsolete as Coulson points out in ''Avengers''.
* GoshDangItToHeck: The single rudest word he has ''ever'' used in both his cinematic appearances is "bastard." He's prone to using exclamations like "Son of a gun" rather than anything more expletive than that.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: He fits this trope much better than 99% of all live-action blond-haired film protagonists. Steve is honestly noble, pure, selfless, and heroic; not to mention a total teddy-bear and sweetheart.
* TheHeart: On the Avengers.
--> "We have to put that behind us and ''get this done''."
* HeroicBuild: Yes, Creator/ChrisEvans really did achieve a real-life Heroic Build.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Bucky Barnes. Pre-serum, Bucky used to defend Steve from bullies; post-serum, Steve breaks into Nazi strongholds to rescue him and Bucky would follow him into hell.
* HonorBeforeReason: More like he believes reason and honor are the same thing, and you can't have one without the other.
* HopeBringer: His only and ''greatest'' superpower: the ability to inspire courage and hope through his nobility and heroism.
* HumanPopsicle Tony calls him a "Capsicle."
* HumbleHero:
--> '''Schmidt:''' What makes YOU so special?
--> '''Captain Rogers:''' Nothing; I'm just a kid from Brooklyn.
* IdealHero: He had the core from the start; it's why he was chosen to be Captain America.
* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: His shield, which is made of [[{{Unobtanium}} Vibranium]].
** MadeOfIndestructium: Not even Thor's hammer can put a dent in said shield.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: This is why the Super Serum was so effective; there's nothing bad in him to amplify, leaving only the good qualities.
* {{Irony}}: Funny, isn't that a tall-and-muscular, blonde-haired blue-eyed, ideal Aryan-''Ubermensch'' fighting '''Germans''' over there?
** Double ironic when you consider that the "ideal Aryan Ubermensch" came from a sickly, physically unimpressive orphan--the exact type of human the Nazis would've deemed inferior.
* JumpedAtTheCall: He'll always answer the call to heroism even if it initially means putting on a stupid outfit and doing a poorly done show.
* JumpingOnAGrenade: Does this when Phillips [[SecretTestOfCharacter throws a dud grenade]]. [[spoiler: In ''The Avengers'', it serves as the central theme of a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Tony Stark (who counters that he would [[TakeAThirdOption just disarm the grenade]]) and later in the final battle he does it for real to save some civilians (he survives thanks to his shield).]]
* TheKirk: Maybe the best description of his leadership style. He'll always put lives first, but he maintains the rationale of a seasoned soldier as well, enabling him to make tough decisions, such as [[spoiler:ordering Natasha to close the Tessaract portal with Tony still on the other side]].
* TheLeader: Overlaps all Types. Was one to the [[BadassCrew Howling Commandos]] back in WWII. In the modern era as New York City is invaded by the Chitauri, he gives orders to the other Avengers on how to contain the attack and to the NYPD on how to protect the civilians.
* LivingLegend: By the 21st century he has trading cards.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: A symbolic weapon for him, since he's more about defending the innocent than punishing the guilty. He often uses it for a ShieldBash and [[ThrowingYourShieldAlwaysWorks hurling it]].
* MadeOfIron: He can take punches from Loki and keep going, and getting shot with a Chitauri weapon is only a non-fatal wound. Though that one could be attributed to his armor.
* TheMessiah: Noble and humble and everyone likes him.
* MessianicArchetype: Born of humble origins, sacrificed himself for the good of the world, and returned in our DarkestHour. Yep.
* MrFanservice: Fun fact: the ''pre-''super-serum Steve Rogers was the CGI one. Chris Evans earned those abs.
* MuscleAngst: Until he becomes a SuperSoldier.
* NervesOfSteel: '''No one''' is braver than Captain America, not [[Film/IronMan a man in]] PoweredArmor, nor [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk a green humanoid beast who can punch through mountains]], or even [[Film/{{Thor}} a thunder god]], and hence it is he, a mere mortal in comparison, who leads ''Film/TheAvengers''.
* NiceGuy: UpToEleven: he's not just 'nice', he's the paragon of traditional American virtue.
* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: When he rescues the men from HYDRA.
* OfficerAndAGentleman: Atypically, not upperclass, but a [[WorkingClassHero common man of the people]]. He is, however, certainly a gentleman and most assuredly an officer.
* OneManArmy: Col. Phililps didn't believe one man could turn the tide of war. He was proven wrong.
* ParentalFavoritism: He's not Howard Stark's biological son or even related to him, but Steve meant a great deal to the man who would father Tony Stark. Tony in turn would eventually come to resent Steve; according to RobertDowneyJr, Steve is "the brother Tony could never live up to." To make things worse, Steve is ostensibly oblivious to this dynamic.
* PatrioticFervor / MyCountryRightOrWrong: It's shown to be more nuanced if subdued. While Steve does love the American Way and is willing to protect his fellow Americans, he's not the jingoistic type who's in it to kill Nazis or force his patriotism down everyone's throat.
* PersonalityPowers: The Super Soldier Serum "...amplifies everything inside. [[NiceGuy Good]] becomes [[TheMessiah great]]. [[{{Jerkass}} Bad]] becomes [[OmnicidalManiac worse]]." Thus, a good-natured and doggedly determined 90 pound asthmatic from Brooklyn turns into the man all women want and all men want to be.
* PopCulturalOsmosisFailure: A side effect from being frozen in the Arctic for nearly 70 years. Except when talking about [[Film/TheWizardOfOz flying monkeys]].
* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang: Due to his advanced skill and split second timing, Steve can always bounce his shield so it comes back to him.
* PreemptiveShutUp: He does this to a SHIELD agent who tries to keep him, Hawkeye, and Black Widow from stealing a jet to pilot to New York. If he'll turn out to be anything like his comic counterpart, he'll become a lot better at employing this tactic.
-->'''Steve''': Son, just don't.
* PrimaryColorChampion: Invoked by the guys designing his costume. He's a PR guy selling war bonds so the colors are important to connect with the in-universe audience.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Thanks to his [[HumanPopsicle 70-year slumber]], Cap is technically the oldest of the Avengers (not counting Thor, who's an immortal god), but he's physically the ''youngest''.
* RealMenLoveJesus
-->'''ComicBook/BlackWidow''': [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor These]] [[ComicBook/{{Loki}} people]] come from [[NorseMythology legend]]. They're [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien basically gods]].
-->'''Steve''': There's only one {{God}}, ma'am, and I'm pretty sure He doesn't dress [[SuperheroesWearCapes like]] [[VillainousFashionSense that]].
* ReturningWarVet: Leading Commando units in WWII preps you for leading superheroes against invading alien hordes.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: When the situation calls for it he will ignore orders to do what he thinks is the best course of action.
* SeenItAll: After being asleep for 70 years, he ''thinks'' he is this.
-->'''Cap:''' At this point, I doubt anything would surprise me.
-->'''Nick Fury:''' Ten bucks says you're wrong.
** [[spoiler:Cap witnesses an entire ''aircraft carrier'' sprout propellers and take to the skies. Fury wins the bet.]]
* SmallStepsHero:
** Attempts to rescue a boy held at gunpoint by a Nazi spy to the point of ''letting the spy shoot him''. (He was out of bullets.) Then, he tries to rescue the drowning boy at the risk of letting a Nazi escape with the SuperSerum. (Luckily, the boy can swim.)
** Saves 400 [=POWs=], risking the life of the USA's only SuperSoldier and the USO's FakeUltimateHero.
** In ''The Avengers'', he rescues a bank full of innocent civilians while the rest of the team fights the aliens and the BigBad.
* SociallyAwkwardHero: Even after he gets serum'ed he has no idea what "fondue" is and thinks it's a sex metaphor. It gets even worse when he wakes up in the present and can't understand most pop culture references.
* SuperheroPackingHeat: Cap is usually seen with guns in WW2, for obvious reasons. Though he does briefly use a machine gun when deprived of his shield in ''The Avengers'', Cap spends most of the film using just his shield and fists.
* SuperSoldier: Tony Stark is not impressed, seeing it as just PlayingWithSyringes.
* TheStrategist: Able to instantaneously formulate ironclad attack patterns, formations and strategies based on split second assessment of the situation compared to the abilities of the warriors under his command. Had he ''not'' been present, the Chitauri would have torn '''every''' innocent civilian in Manhattan asunder, with the Avengers too scattered and disorganized to protect them.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: He doesn't like Tony. At all. [[spoiler: But the fires of battle help them forge their friendship.]]
* ThrowingYourShieldAlwaysWorks: If he can't reach you with his arm, expect his shield to pay you a visit in the near future.
* TookALevelInBadass: This was essentially what his entire film was about -- going from a scrawny Brooklyn boy to the ultimate soldier and ''still'' a NiceGuy by the end of it, which was why he was chosen.
* {{Unobtanium}}: His shield, which is composed of the only samples of Vibranium ever found by/given to Howard Stark.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Type 2 with Bucky. They trade insults as farewells.
* WarriorPoet: The most thoughtful and introspective of The Avengers, not to mention quite a talented artist before his induction into superheroism.
* WideEyedIdealist: Which is why he finds Stark's materialistic-cynicism twice as grating as most people would.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: He's a bit younger than he looks, but his experience as a soldier allows him to see the best way to handle just about any battlefield situation, and in trying times makes him the greatest and most competent field leader to serve under, age be damned.
* YoungAndInCharge: With the possible exception of the Black Widow, is the youngest member on the team. His strength of character and his battlefield experience, however, make him the best fit for command.
** The best example is the first time the Avengers assemble as a team in the middle of a Chitauri-overrun New York; there is no prior discussion among the Avengers who takes the lead, but Steve starts issuing orders right away. What's most impressive is that he makes the Hulk--who, not too long ago, was trying to harm Black Widow and Thor on the helicarrier--follow him with a few words:
-->'''Cap:''' And Hulk?
-->(Hulk immediately looks at him.)
-->'''Cap:''' ''[[PhraseCatcher Smash]]''.
-->(Hulk smirks with pleasure, and proceeds to do just that.)

----
* BadassNormal
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead]]
* ChickMagnet: He used to be this before Rogers got the SuperSoldier serum. Then the chicks all got distracted by Steve. Bucky is not entirely graceful about the switch.

->''"[[GoodIsNotNice If you have anything to say, now would be a perfect time to keep it to yourself.]]"''

->'''Portrayed By''': Creator/TommyLeeJones
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

The US Army Colonel in charge of the SuperSoldier project alongside Erskine. Upon first seeing Rogers (before the serum), he "wanted to cry" and had absolutely no faith in the young asthmatic, but quickly realized the project worked. While he went off to the battlefield, he intended for Rogers to be locked up in a lab - didn't work out quite so well as the Cap became America's greatest propaganda icon. After the Cap saved 400 Hydra prisoners, the two worked together to bring down Schmidt.
----
* {{Badass}}
** BadassNormal
** ColonelBadass: When he goes into combat, he shows that he's very much a badass: He joins the fray in the final fight and coins the response to HYDRA agents' "cut off one head, two more will take its place" evil creed.
--->'''HYDRA Soldier''': [[BadassCreed Cut off one head, two more shall]]--! (''gets [[KilledMidSentence shot mid sentence]] by Philips)''
--->'''Colonel Philips''': [[BondOneLiner Let's go find two more.]]
* CommanderContrarian: An approach that leaves him with egg on his face no less than twice.
* CoolCar: Procures Schmidt's monstrosity to help Cap stop him.
* DeadpanSnarker: Seeing as it's Creator/TommyLeeJones, it's hard to expect anything less.
-->'''Phillips:''' (''When Steve looks to him for orders after his and Peggy's NowOrNeverKiss'') [[NoYay I'm not kissing you!]]
* GoodIsNotNice: He may be on the heroically portrayed side in his film, but his words show he's really not all that nice.
-->'''Phillips:''' When you brought a ''[[MuscleAngst ninety-pound asthmatic]]'' onto ''my'' army base, I let it slide. I thought, what the hell? Maybe he'll be useful to you, like a gerbil. I never thought you'd ''[[SuperSoldier pick]]'' him. Look at him. He's making me cry.
** Though Steve shows him that the two can go hand in hand and he noticeably becomes more respectful, leading to the below trope.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Dislikes Steve greatly, but offers him a word of condolence when it appear his best friend was killed in action.
* JerkassHasAPoint: He has a good reason for not staging a mission to rescue the 107th: they are located 30 miles behind enemy lines in a heavily fortified area. They'd lose more men than they'd save.
* TheNeidermeyer: Subverted. He turns out to be [[ColonelBadass pretty awesome]].
* PetTheDog: Near the end of the film, he silently gives Peggy a file on Steve Rogers, [[HerHeartWillGoOn to help her cope with the loss of the love of her life.]]
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Not at first but CharacterDevelopment turns him into one, starting from the moment Steve surrenders himself to disciplinary action and up to his final scene [[spoiler:when he gives Peggy Steve's folder with a heartfelt look of sympathy.]]
* SourSupporter: His reaction to [[MuscleAngst Steve Rogers]] JumpingOnAGrenade ([[SecretTestOfCharacter dud]]) instead of [[JerkJock his favored subject]]?

[[folder:Howard Stark]]
!!''Howard Stark''
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/howard_stark_ca_780.png]]
->''"The moment you think you know what's goin' on in a woman's head, it's the moment your goose is well and truly cooked."''

->'''Portrayed By''': John Slattery, Dominic Cooper (pictured left)
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/IronMan2'' (portrayed by John Slattery) / ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' (portrayed by Dominic Cooper)

The founder and CEO of Stark Industries, and Tony Stark's father. During World War II, he was America's biggest military contractor, and one of the leading scientists behind the SuperSoldier project. He occassionally assisted Rogers in several missions during his tenure before returning to Stark Industries.
----
* AbusiveParents: Not ''abusive'', but Tony's impression of him wasn't terribly positive.
* AcePilot: The best civilian pilot in the USA.
* BiggerStick: Working on a SuperSoldier project either led to this kind of thinking or is his reason for being there in the first place. In any case, he's the page quote.
* BreakTheCutie: Strongly implied - in CA, Howard's cheerful, optimistic, and outgoing, as opposed to the bitter, emotionally-distant drunk he's shown to be in other films.
* BrainyBrunette
* ChivalrousPervert: Subverted. He plays one on stage to maintain the image, but he's actually strictly professional.
* DeadpanSnarker: To a lesser degree than his son.
* {{Expy}}: Of his son, [[Film/IronMan Tony]]. And WaltDisney.
* ForScience: His main reason for creating his inventions. He's not pleased when his partner Anton Vanko is OnlyInItForTheMoney.
* InsufferableGenius: Like father, like son. Though with a strange sense of modesty.
--> '''Howard''':Speaking modestly, I'm the best mechanical engineer in this country. But I do not know what's inside this thing [HYDRA submarine] or how it works.
* ItRunsInTheFamily
** LikeFatherLikeSon
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[ParentalNeglect Tony may not know about this]] until after he's dead, but he's very loyal and benevolent to Steve, not that it helps [[TheUnfavorite Tony's case]].
* MadScientist: He's got the tendencies, even if he doesn't have the attitude.
--> '''Howard''': Seems harmless enough. Hard to see what all the fuss is about.
-->[Touches energy bit, massive explosion blows him back]
--> '''Howard''': [Dazed, yet unconcerned] Write that down.
* TheOtherDarrin: Portrayed by James Caan in still photos, John Slattery in archive footage and Dominic Cooper in life. Whew. Justified to an extent as all three depictions are from different time periods -- the still photos are from around Tony Stark's pre-teens and beyond, the archive footage from his childhood, and in real life it's the 40s long before he's even born, so Howard ages significantly between each depiction.
* ParentalFavoritism: The fact that Howard, always a distant and hard-to-please dad, seemed to "never shut up" about Steve Rogers seems to be a thorny point with Tony by the time ''Film/TheAvengers'' rolls around, fueling his initial dislike of Steve.
* ParentalNeglect: Barely even spoke to Tony and sent him off to boarding school.
* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Howard Stark was ironing out the kinks in an anti-gravity car in ''1942'', yet his son and all his friends still drive regular cars on wheels 70 years later. Although he had the Tesseract to study for several decades, he was unable to make anything useful from it aside from what appears to be a form of a cold fusion (arc) reactor. By comparison, a contemporary scientist (Zola) managed to make energy blasters, tanks, submarines, and flying wings from it in what is assumed to be a far shorter time.
** There is an attempt to HandWave it in ''Iron Man 2'' during Howard's video to Tony. The implication is that, like a [[ILoveNuclearPower Nuclear Age]] NikolaTesla, Howard has the knowledge to develop this material, but not the ''materials'' due to the rest of society having not caught up yet. Doesn't explain how Zola was able to.
--->'''Howard Stark:''' I'm limited by the technology of my time.
** It's also implied that the Tesseract was "deactivated" in some way when it [[spoiler:teleported the RedSkull into space]]. So it's possible that Zola merely lucked out and was working with a fully functional Tesseract while Howard Stark was not. Sure, he could design an energy blaster like Zola once he caught himself up with the theories behind it, but he had no way of charging the batteries needed to make it work.

->'''Portrayed By''': Creator/ChrisEvans, Sebastian Stan, Neal [=McDonough=], JJ Field, Bruno Ricci, Kenneth Choi, Derek Luke
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

Steve Roger's hand-picked strike-force. Despite the prejudices of the 40s, each were chosen based on their fighting ability, not their race. Together the Commandos brought down of the RedSkull's bases, impeding his efforts for his [[NukeEm annihilation of the world]].
----
* BadassInDistress: All of them are former Prisoners Of War held in a HYDRA camp. After Steve frees them, they proceed to kick HYDRA butt.
* BlackVikings: Justified. All of them are soldiers, and Cap, being the NiceGuy that he is, only sees their humanity and not their race.
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: Somewhat Zig-zagged. The Howling Commandos are a team of hardcore badass soldiers, seven men capable of laying waste to battalions of enemy forces and destroying a string of fortified HYDRA installations, but we aren't informed of what units the Howlers came from, though Bucky is said to belong to a standard infantry regiment (and a deleted scene shows both Dugan and Jones to come from the same unit), with the only exception of Falsworth, a British paratrooper in the appropriate uniform, though he is neither shown to be more badass than the others, nor is his elite cred mentioned.
* TheEnemyWeaponsAreBetter: Some of them use HYDRA weapons when they can. Other, like Cap or Bucky, [[KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter prefer bullets]].
* FireForgedFriends: The fact that most of them were locked in the same cage no doubt contributed to them forging a strong bond that transcends racial, national and class differences.
* MultinationalTeam: In the forties, no less! Dernier is French, Falsworth is British, and the rest are American, though they include Jones, an African-American, and Morita who is ''Nisei'', alongside the Caucasian Steve, Bucky and Dugan.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted. Half the team, that is 3.5 of them, are named James. The 0.5 is Jacques, which is the French form of James.
* TrueCompanions: Off the job, they're perfectly happy to hang out at the local bar together.

----

* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: He is a member of the British Paras. Subverted though in that he is the only member of the Howling Commandos to be a member of an elite unit, and it isn't even mentioned.
* MythologyGag: In the comics, he's the British equivalent of Captain America named "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_Jack_(comics) Union Jack]]". The film references this [[http://marvel-movies.wikia.com/wiki/James_Falsworth by having his uniform resemble the British flag]].

A French resistance operative. He was rescued from HYDRA's prison camp by Steve, and joined his handpicked elite unit as the resident explosives expert.
----
* BadassMustache
* BilingualBonus: He only speaks in (unsubtitled) French. Gabe Jones typically acts as his translator.

A ''Nisei'' (American-Born Japanese) soldier from Fresno, California rescued by Steve. Jim endured the predictable prejudice towards his people after Pearl Harbor in spite of his patriotism. However, he soon proved himself a fierce and loyal battle-brother serving as the Communications Officer of Captain America's Howling Commandos.

Prior to being rescued by Captain Rogers, Gabe was a Linguistics-Major graduate of Howard University who hoped to steal the hearts of European women with his winning smile, charming personality and fluency of multiple languages. Now his linguistic mastery has become an invaluable asset amongst the Howling Commandos.
----
* BadassBookworm: Made doubly so by the difficulties and prejudice faced by African Americans when seeking education in the racist social-climate of 1940's America; and he was able to ''graduate'' in spite of said prejudices.
* {{BFG}}: Uses a huge two handed machine gun as his main weapon.
* BlackAndNerdy: Averted; in spite of his academic achievements, Jones is every inch as fierce a warrior as his fellow Howling Commandos.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Averted. He doesn't die in WorldWarII, and even is the one to [[spoiler:capture Dr. Zola]].
* BlackVikings: Last-minute aversion. A cut scene shows him fighting in Bucky and Dum Dum's unit ''before'' their capture, even though black soldiers were segregated from white at the time. However, the scene was cut, so the canon Jones may have previously fought in a segregated unit as per history.
* TheCasanova
-->'''Dum Dum''': You know French too?

* NiceGuy: Insists on noble qualities for his super solider because he wants it to be used to end the war. He clearly isn't lacking in noble qualities himself.

->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

A brilliant yet completely insane German scientist during World War II, the head of the Nazi party's deep science division HYDRA. His pursuit of power from NorseMythology turned him into a greater threat than AdolfHitler himself. Being a SuperSoldier [[PsychoPrototype prototype]] doesn't hurt either.
-----
* AGodAmI: Has one hell of a god complex. Gets deflated whenever Cap calls him out on it or acts humble despite his own commensurate super power.
* AllGermansAreNazis: Initially, then he becomes [[UpToEleven even worse]].
* AxCrazy: Everyone recognizes him as insane and his methods of employee disicipline are horrific.
* {{Badass}}: Dented Steve's first shield, which is why he needed the one made of Vibranium.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: Same as Steve

* CoolCar: [[WatchThePaintJob and quite proud of it!]]
* ClarkesThirdLaw: He came up with it ''before [[ArthurCClarke Clarke]] himself''.

He also has no problem with [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim just shooting his enemies]], including his rival.
* DeadpanSnarker: When a soldier says his unit 'fought to the last man' he replies 'Evidentally not' and kills him.
* EvilCounterpart: Much like Cap, he also had been injected with the serum. Unlike Cap, he [[spoiler:betrays his own country]] and is pretty much hell-bent on world domination.
* EvilMakesYouUgly: Or at least an imperfect SuperSoldier Serum does when ''mixed'' with internal evil.
* EvilPlan: Use the Tesseract to create super weapons and take over the world.
* EvilerThanThou: To ''the Nazis''.
* FacialHorror: His entire head is a deformed, red skull shape, albeit with eyes, due to taking the unfinished SuperSoldier serum.
* LargeHam
* {{Narcissist}}: Has one of his minions paint a portrait of him [[{{Squick}} with entrails]].
** "This want not meant for eyes of ordinary men."
** "Precisely."
* TheNoseless: Justified; he's a skull and the nose is made of cartilege.
* PersonalityPowers: The Super Soldier Serum "...amplifies everything inside. Good becomes great. Bad becomes worse." Thus, a psychopathic Nazi who gave ''AdolfHitler'' the creeps essentially becomes the GrimReaper and even crazier than ever, with power to match his madness.
* PragmaticVillainy: Schmidt could have easily left Zola to die, but instead gives him the keys to his CoolCar... of course, the only reason he does that is out of concern for his car.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: After Schmidt's transformation, Hitler "gives" him a secret base in the Alps. The Red Skull knows that he's really being exiled. [[ReassignmentBackfire However, it gives Schmidt enough privacy to turn HYDRA into his personal army.]]
* [[RedRightHand Red Skull Face]]: Though he does have a fleshy mask to cover it.
* SkullForAHead: It's in the name.

* TheStarscream: He has his minions chanting "Heil HYDRA". Eventually he's revealed to have Berlin as one of his targets for annihilation, and kills the Nazi officers who come to look through his projects.
* SuperSoldier: Same as Steve.
** PsychoPrototype: His serum was flawed and he is evil so it made him more psycho then he already was.
* TearOffYourFace: Inverted. To show what he really looks like, he tears off his ''own'' face (or at least the false one) to show to Cap.

* VillainsOutShopping: He recognizes Captain America on security monitors and calls to him by name, saying he's a fan of his films. These observations ''do'' beg the question of what he does in his spare time. Considering that the people said films likely pit the Captain against are the Nazis that Schmidt has broken away from, that statement may not be sarcasm.
* WickedCultured: Shows an appreciation for folklore (for business purposes) and has his picture painted the old fashioned way.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Though he certainly manages it well and in fact it's [[PowerBornOfMadness all but outright stated by Zola]], who notes that the sanity (or lack thereof) of his plans are irrelevant, because he can carry them out.

->'''Portrayed By''': Creator/ChrisEvans
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' / ''Film/TheAvengers'' / ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''

A sickly young man from Brooklyn turned into a perfect soldier by a government project. Unfortunately, the creator of the project was murdered, leaving Rogers as the only result of the project. Because of this, he was initially used as a propaganda tool to sell war bonds. He eventually earned his stripes as a soldier by rescuing an entire platoon from a HYDRA factory, where he first encountered the Red Skull. After defeating the Red Skull, Cap crashed his Valkyrie aircraft into a glacier where he went into a hibernation state and written off as KIA for nearly 70 years before being found by SHIELD in the modern day. His weapon of choice is a Vibranium shield designed by Howard Stark that can absorb all energy directed at it, making it ideal as both protection and as a projectile (as it does not lose energy when it makes contact with another surface when thrown).
-----
* {{Adorkable}}: Even ''after'' receiving the Super Soldier serum.
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted. Pre-transformation Steve Rogers is terribly intimidated by women (owing to his small stature), even afraid to ask girls to dance with him. His apprehension remains after receiving the Super Soldier serum, even when women throw themselves at him. His brief macking with the secretary may very well be his first kiss.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Played both in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' and ''Film/TheAvengers''. It takes Steve infiltrating a HYDRA base and rescuing a battalion's worth of soldiers for others to take him seriously in the former; in the latter, it takes him a brief skirmish (and a torn arm or two) with the invading aliens for the New York authorities to listen to what he's trying to tell them.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassAdorable: A sweet-tempered, well-mannered and kind-hearted BoyNextDoor who just happens to also possess a body rebuilt to the pinnacle of human perfection.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: No actual super powers aside from his superhuman physique, and he started out as a scrawny kid before becoming a SuperSoldier.
* BashBrothers: As a kind, noble and courageous man, Steve was already quick to earn Thor's respect: it's in the fires that raged through the battle of Manhattan that they ''truly'' become brothers.
** Also with Tony Stark after earning each other's respect through fighting side by side.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's one of the nicest, sweetest guys in the world, but may God help you if you decide to hurt innocents.
* BlessedWithSuck: His metabolism is four times faster than the average human, so he can't [[DrowningMySorrows drown his sorrows in the bottle]] when [[spoiler:Bucky]] dies.
** NeverGetsDrunk
* BoyNextDoor: A total sweetheart to boot.
* BrooklynRage: While he's not bad tempered or violent, Steve still has the absolute determination and utter refusal to turn down a challenge that goes with this trope. "If you start running, they'll never let you stop."
* BullyHunter: "I don't like bullies. I don't care where they're from."
* ButtMonkey: He was stuck doing cheesy war propaganda for a while after he became a Super Soldier. For bonus points, he even drew himself as a performing monkey.
* TheCape: Initially invoked for the USO show and after the timeskip he wonders if this sort of hero is old-fashioned. Regardless, he's a great example.
* TheCaptain: Phillips refers to him as "Captain Rogers" in his letter to the Senator, it's safe to assume he does.
* CaptainGeographic: Take a wild guess.[[note]]What? No! Not [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_colors_of_national_flags#Red.2C_white_and_blue Puerto Rico and Liberia!]][[/note]]
* CaptainPatriotic: At first, the USO shuffles Steve into this role as a mascot for War Bonds sales, but he soon becomes the noble, heroic, no-surrender strategist we all know him to be.
* TheChainsOfCommanding: Not only does Steve have to adapt to a world where everything he knows is 70 years gone or dead, but has to get a [[Film/{{Thor}} Norse god]], an [[Film/IronMan egotistical genius]] who's jealous of the relationship between Cap and his father, and a [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk scientist with... anger issues]] to work together as something resembling a team alongside two [[{{Hawkeye}} hard-nosed]] [[ComicBook/BlackWidow assassins]], while earning all of their respect and he succeeds.
* ChasteHero: See AManIsNotAVirgin above.
* TheComicallySerious
* CovertPervert: He gets grabbed into a kiss and doesn't exactly protest. He immediately assumes a word he's never heard before has something to do with sex. Yeah, he's not innocent.
* {{Determinator}}: His signature trait -- he doesn't give up. ''Ever''.
* DorkKnight: Both ''absolutely'' noble and heroic and kind of a huge puppy-dog of a man. Even post-defrosting (when he's obviously had a tough time coping with the modern day and the personal tragedies he suffered getting there), he's at all times earnest, humble, kind-hearted and devoted to defending the innocent.
* FakeUltimateHero: At first, after Steve takes the serum. But then he [[BecomingTheMask becomes the mask.]]
* FightsLikeANormal: Captain America is easily confused as a BadassNormal, but he isn't given that he has a super serum that gives him the ability to be at the peak of human condition.
* FireForgedFriends: With both The Avengers and his friends from the war. Especially [[spoiler:Tony Stark]].
* {{Foil}}: To Tony Stark, playing the old-fashioned idealist to Tony's selfish cynic. For example, while both are shown to be dolls of the public (featured at big show events complete with dancing girls), Steve is visibly uncomfortable with the spotlight and would rather be on the front lines whereas Tony eats up the attention.
* FolkHero: Steve is this in the Marvel universe; he's a LivingLegend with, apparently, his own merchandise and even trading cards (as Coulson can certainly attest). He seems taken aback by their existence in modern times.
* GeniusBruiser: Steve has intelligence to complement his physical ability, though he doesn't have an advanced education. He's an excellent tactician, learns quickly, and in one case was almost instantly able to determine that he was being deceived simply by listening to a few moments of an indistinct baseball game that he had attended. His artistic skills come into play as well, as he's able to memorize and accurately pinpoint all of HYDRA's bases on a map of Europe after seeing a brief glimpse.
* GenreSavvy: Not at first, but by ''Film/TheAvengers'' it's pretty clear he's learned from experience. He quickly figures out that Loki gave up too easy, and even if he claims that they should just follow their orders, [[spoiler:he still goes to check and beats Tony to the punch on calling out Fury]].
* GentleGiant: Post lab procedure.
* TheGoodCaptain
* GoodIsNotSoft: A nice, sweet boy. Who over two movies, has thrown people out of airborne aircrafts, set them on fire, and hacked opponents' arms off.
* GoodIsOldFashioned: But not obsolete as Coulson points out in ''Avengers''.
* GoshDangItToHeck: The single rudest word he has ''ever'' used in both his cinematic appearances is "bastard." He's prone to using exclamations like "Son of a gun" rather than anything more expletive than that.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: He fits this trope much better than 99% of all live-action blond-haired film protagonists. Steve is honestly noble, pure, selfless, and heroic; not to mention a total teddy-bear and sweetheart.
* TheHeart: On the Avengers.
--> "We have to put that behind us and ''get this done''."
* HeroicBuild: Yes, Creator/ChrisEvans really did achieve a real-life Heroic Build.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Bucky Barnes. Pre-serum, Bucky used to defend Steve from bullies; post-serum, Steve breaks into Nazi strongholds to rescue him and Bucky would follow him into hell.
* HonorBeforeReason: More like he believes reason and honor are the same thing, and you can't have one without the other.
* HopeBringer: His only and ''greatest'' superpower: the ability to inspire courage and hope through his nobility and heroism.
* HumanPopsicle Tony calls him a "Capsicle."
* HumbleHero:
--> '''Schmidt:''' What makes YOU so special?
--> '''Captain Rogers:''' Nothing; I'm just a kid from Brooklyn.
* IdealHero: He had the core from the start; it's why he was chosen to be Captain America.
* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: His shield, which is made of [[{{Unobtanium}} Vibranium]].
** MadeOfIndestructium: Not even Thor's hammer can put a dent in said shield.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: This is why the Super Serum was so effective; there's nothing bad in him to amplify, leaving only the good qualities.
* {{Irony}}: Funny, isn't that a tall-and-muscular, blonde-haired blue-eyed, ideal Aryan-''Ubermensch'' fighting '''Germans''' over there?
** Double ironic when you consider that the "ideal Aryan Ubermensch" came from a sickly, physically unimpressive orphan--the exact type of human the Nazis would've deemed inferior.
* JumpedAtTheCall: He'll always answer the call to heroism even if it initially means putting on a stupid outfit and doing a poorly done show.
* JumpingOnAGrenade: Does this when Phillips [[SecretTestOfCharacter throws a dud grenade]]. [[spoiler: In ''The Avengers'', it serves as the central theme of a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Tony Stark (who counters that he would [[TakeAThirdOption just disarm the grenade]]) and later in the final battle he does it for real to save some civilians (he survives thanks to his shield).]]
* TheKirk: Maybe the best description of his leadership style. He'll always put lives first, but he maintains the rationale of a seasoned soldier as well, enabling him to make tough decisions, such as [[spoiler:ordering Natasha to close the Tessaract portal with Tony still on the other side]].
* TheLeader: Overlaps all Types. Was one to the [[BadassCrew Howling Commandos]] back in WWII. In the modern era as New York City is invaded by the Chitauri, he gives orders to the other Avengers on how to contain the attack and to the NYPD on how to protect the civilians.
* LivingLegend: By the 21st century he has trading cards.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: A symbolic weapon for him, since he's more about defending the innocent than punishing the guilty. He often uses it for a ShieldBash and [[ThrowingYourShieldAlwaysWorks hurling it]].
* MadeOfIron: He can take punches from Loki and keep going, and getting shot with a Chitauri weapon is only a non-fatal wound. Though that one could be attributed to his armor.
* TheMessiah: Noble and humble and everyone likes him.
* MessianicArchetype: Born of humble origins, sacrificed himself for the good of the world, and returned in our DarkestHour. Yep.
* MrFanservice: Fun fact: the ''pre-''super-serum Steve Rogers was the CGI one. Chris Evans earned those abs.
* MuscleAngst: Until he becomes a SuperSoldier.
* NervesOfSteel: '''No one''' is braver than Captain America, not [[Film/IronMan a man in]] PoweredArmor, nor [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk a green humanoid beast who can punch through mountains]], or even [[Film/{{Thor}} a thunder god]], and hence it is he, a mere mortal in comparison, who leads ''Film/TheAvengers''.
* NiceGuy: UpToEleven: he's not just 'nice', he's the paragon of traditional American virtue.
* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: When he rescues the men from HYDRA.
* OfficerAndAGentleman: Atypically, not upperclass, but a [[WorkingClassHero common man of the people]]. He is, however, certainly a gentleman and most assuredly an officer.
* OneManArmy: Col. Phililps didn't believe one man could turn the tide of war. He was proven wrong.
* ParentalFavoritism: He's not Howard Stark's biological son or even related to him, but Steve meant a great deal to the man who would father Tony Stark. Tony in turn would eventually come to resent Steve; according to RobertDowneyJr, Steve is "the brother Tony could never live up to." To make things worse, Steve is ostensibly oblivious to this dynamic.
* PatrioticFervor / MyCountryRightOrWrong: It's shown to be more nuanced if subdued. While Steve does love the American Way and is willing to protect his fellow Americans, he's not the jingoistic type who's in it to kill Nazis or force his patriotism down everyone's throat.
* PersonalityPowers: The Super Soldier Serum "...amplifies everything inside. [[NiceGuy Good]] becomes [[TheMessiah great]]. [[{{Jerkass}} Bad]] becomes [[OmnicidalManiac worse]]." Thus, a good-natured and doggedly determined 90 pound asthmatic from Brooklyn turns into the man all women want and all men want to be.
* PopCulturalOsmosisFailure: A side effect from being frozen in the Arctic for nearly 70 years. Except when talking about [[Film/TheWizardOfOz flying monkeys]].
* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang: Due to his advanced skill and split second timing, Steve can always bounce his shield so it comes back to him.
* PreemptiveShutUp: He does this to a SHIELD agent who tries to keep him, Hawkeye, and Black Widow from stealing a jet to pilot to New York. If he'll turn out to be anything like his comic counterpart, he'll become a lot better at employing this tactic.
-->'''Steve''': Son, just don't.
* PrimaryColorChampion: Invoked by the guys designing his costume. He's a PR guy selling war bonds so the colors are important to connect with the in-universe audience.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Thanks to his [[HumanPopsicle 70-year slumber]], Cap is technically the oldest of the Avengers (not counting Thor, who's an immortal god), but he's physically the ''youngest''.
* RealMenLoveJesus
-->'''ComicBook/BlackWidow''': [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor These]] [[ComicBook/{{Loki}} people]] come from [[NorseMythology legend]]. They're [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien basically gods]].
-->'''Steve''': There's only one {{God}}, ma'am, and I'm pretty sure He doesn't dress [[SuperheroesWearCapes like]] [[VillainousFashionSense that]].
* ReturningWarVet: Leading Commando units in WWII preps you for leading superheroes against invading alien hordes.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: When the situation calls for it he will ignore orders to do what he thinks is the best course of action.
* SeenItAll: After being asleep for 70 years, he ''thinks'' he is this.
-->'''Cap:''' At this point, I doubt anything would surprise me.
-->'''Nick Fury:''' Ten bucks says you're wrong.
** [[spoiler:Cap witnesses an entire ''aircraft carrier'' sprout propellers and take to the skies. Fury wins the bet.]]
* SmallStepsHero:
** Attempts to rescue a boy held at gunpoint by a Nazi spy to the point of ''letting the spy shoot him''. (He was out of bullets.) Then, he tries to rescue the drowning boy at the risk of letting a Nazi escape with the SuperSerum. (Luckily, the boy can swim.)
** Saves 400 [=POWs=], risking the life of the USA's only SuperSoldier and the USO's FakeUltimateHero.
** In ''The Avengers'', he rescues a bank full of innocent civilians while the rest of the team fights the aliens and the BigBad.
* SociallyAwkwardHero: Even after he gets serum'ed he has no idea what "fondue" is and thinks it's a sex metaphor. It gets even worse when he wakes up in the present and can't understand most pop culture references.
* SuperheroPackingHeat: Cap is usually seen with guns in WW2, for obvious reasons. Though he does briefly use a machine gun when deprived of his shield in ''The Avengers'', Cap spends most of the film using just his shield and fists.
* SuperSoldier: Tony Stark is not impressed, seeing it as just PlayingWithSyringes.
* TheStrategist: Able to instantaneously formulate ironclad attack patterns, formations and strategies based on split second assessment of the situation compared to the abilities of the warriors under his command. Had he ''not'' been present, the Chitauri would have torn '''every''' innocent civilian in Manhattan asunder, with the Avengers too scattered and disorganized to protect them.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: He doesn't like Tony. At all. [[spoiler: But the fires of battle help them forge their friendship.]]
* ThrowingYourShieldAlwaysWorks: If he can't reach you with his arm, expect his shield to pay you a visit in the near future.
* TookALevelInBadass: This was essentially what his entire film was about -- going from a scrawny Brooklyn boy to the ultimate soldier and ''still'' a NiceGuy by the end of it, which was why he was chosen.
* {{Unobtanium}}: His shield, which is composed of the only samples of Vibranium ever found by/given to Howard Stark.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Type 2 with Bucky. They trade insults as farewells.
* WarriorPoet: The most thoughtful and introspective of The Avengers, not to mention quite a talented artist before his induction into superheroism.
* WideEyedIdealist: Which is why he finds Stark's materialistic-cynicism twice as grating as most people would.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: He's a bit younger than he looks, but his experience as a soldier allows him to see the best way to handle just about any battlefield situation, and in trying times makes him the greatest and most competent field leader to serve under, age be damned.
* YoungAndInCharge: With the possible exception of the Black Widow, is the youngest member on the team. His strength of character and his battlefield experience, however, make him the best fit for command.
** The best example is the first time the Avengers assemble as a team in the middle of a Chitauri-overrun New York; there is no prior discussion among the Avengers who takes the lead, but Steve starts issuing orders right away. What's most impressive is that he makes the Hulk--who, not too long ago, was trying to harm Black Widow and Thor on the helicarrier--follow him with a few words:
-->'''Cap:''' And Hulk?
-->(Hulk immediately looks at him.)
-->'''Cap:''' ''[[PhraseCatcher Smash]]''.
-->(Hulk smirks with pleasure, and proceeds to do just that.)

The US Army Colonel in charge of the SuperSoldier project alongside Erskine.

While he went off to the battlefield, he intended for Rogers to be locked up in a lab - didn't work out quite so well as the Cap became America's greatest propaganda icon. After the Cap saved 400 Hydra prisoners, the two worked together to bring down Schmidt.

The founder and CEO of Stark Industries, and Tony Stark's father. During World War II, he was America's biggest military contractor, and one of the leading scientists behind the SuperSoldier project. He occassionally assisted Rogers in several missions during his tenure before returning to Stark Industries.
----
* AbusiveParents: Not ''abusive'', but Tony's impression of him wasn't terribly positive.
* AcePilot: The best civilian pilot in the USA.
* BiggerStick: Working on a SuperSoldier project either led to this kind of thinking or is his reason for being there in the first place. In any case, he's the page quote.
* BreakTheCutie: Strongly implied - in CA, Howard's cheerful, optimistic, and outgoing, as opposed to the bitter, emotionally-distant drunk he's shown to be in other films.

* ForScience: His main reason for creating his inventions. He's not pleased when his partner Anton Vanko is OnlyInItForTheMoney.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[ParentalNeglect Tony may not know about this]] until after he's dead, but he's very loyal and benevolent to Steve, not that it helps [[TheUnfavorite Tony's case]].
* MadScientist: He's got the tendencies, even if he doesn't have the attitude.
--> '''Howard''': Seems harmless enough. Hard to see what all the fuss is about.
-->[Touches energy bit, massive explosion blows him back]
--> '''Howard''': [Dazed, yet unconcerned] Write that down.
* TheOtherDarrin: Portrayed by James Caan in still photos, John Slattery in archive footage and Dominic Cooper in life. Whew. Justified to an extent as all three depictions are from different time periods -- the still photos are from around Tony Stark's pre-teens and beyond, the archive footage from his childhood, and in real life it's the 40s long before he's even born, so Howard ages significantly between each depiction.
* ParentalFavoritism: The fact that Howard, always a distant and hard-to-please dad, seemed to "never shut up" about Steve Rogers seems to be a thorny point with Tony by the time ''Film/TheAvengers'' rolls around, fueling his initial dislike of Steve.
* ParentalNeglect: Barely even spoke to Tony and sent him off to boarding school.
* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Howard Stark was ironing out the kinks in an anti-gravity car in ''1942'', yet his son and all his friends still drive regular cars on wheels 70 years later. Although he had the Tesseract to study for several decades, he was unable to make anything useful from it aside from what appears to be a form of a cold fusion (arc) reactor. By comparison, a contemporary scientist (Zola) managed to make energy blasters, tanks, submarines, and flying wings from it in what is assumed to be a far shorter time.
** There is an attempt to HandWave it in ''Iron Man 2'' during Howard's video to Tony. The implication is that, like a [[ILoveNuclearPower Nuclear Age]] NikolaTesla, Howard has the knowledge to develop this material, but not the ''materials'' due to the rest of society having not caught up yet. Doesn't explain how Zola was able to.
--->'''Howard Stark:''' I'm limited by the technology of my time.
** It's also implied that the Tesseract was "deactivated" in some way when it [[spoiler:teleported the RedSkull into space]]. So it's possible that Zola merely lucked out and was working with a fully functional Tesseract while Howard Stark was not. Sure, he could design an energy blaster like Zola once he caught himself up with the theories behind it, but he had no way of charging the batteries needed to make it work.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Howard develops weapons for the military, which is why he wasn't punished for helping Steve with his ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Another reason.

* BadassInDistress: All of them are former Prisoners Of War held in a HYDRA camp. After Steve frees them, they proceed to kick HYDRA butt.
* BlackVikings: Justified. All of them are soldiers, and Cap, being the NiceGuy that he is, only sees their humanity and not their race.
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: Somewhat Zig-zagged. The Howling Commandos are a team of hardcore badass soldiers, seven men capable of laying waste to battalions of enemy forces and destroying a string of fortified HYDRA installations, but we aren't informed of what units the Howlers came from, though Bucky is said to belong to a standard infantry regiment (and a deleted scene shows both Dugan and Jones to come from the same unit), with the only exception of Falsworth, a British paratrooper in the appropriate uniform, though he is neither shown to be more badass than the others, nor is his elite cred mentioned.
* TheEnemyWeaponsAreBetter: Some of them use HYDRA weapons when they can. Other, like Cap or Bucky, [[KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter prefer bullets]].
* FireForgedFriends: The fact that most of them were locked in the same cage no doubt contributed to them forging a strong bond that transcends racial, national and class differences.

A ''Nisei'' (American-Born Japanese) soldier from Fresno, California rescued by Steve. Jim endured the predictable prejudice towards his people after Pearl Harbor in spite of his patriotism. However, he soon proved himself a fierce and loyal battle-brother serving as the Communications Officer of Captain America's Howling Commandos.
----
* BadassBookworm
* CommunicationsOfficer
* DeadpanSnarker: The 'fresno' comment is dripping bitter sarcasm.
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: The other of the two commandos to die in the seventy years between films.
* TokenEnemyMinority: Subverted. He's a ''Nisei'', meaning he has Japanese descent, but is American-born.
* YellowPeril: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] and [[DefiedTrope Defied]]; It is to the film's credit that it shatters the despicable stereotypes of the [=1940s=] to show that ''not'' every Japanese soldier was an enemy to America.

->'''Portrayed By''': Derek Luke
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

Prior to being rescued by Captain Rogers, Gabe was a Linguistics-Major graduate of Howard University who hoped to steal the hearts of European women with his winning smile, charming personality and fluency of multiple languages. Now his linguistic mastery has become an invaluable asset amongst the Howling Commandos.
----
* BadassBookworm: Made doubly so by the difficulties and prejudice faced by African Americans when seeking education in the racist social-climate of 1940's America; and he was able to ''graduate'' in spite of said prejudices.
* {{BFG}}: Uses a huge two handed machine gun as his main weapon.
* BlackAndNerdy: Averted; in spite of his academic achievements, Jones is every inch as fierce a warrior as his fellow Howling Commandos.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Averted. He doesn't die in WorldWarII, and even is the one to [[spoiler:capture Dr. Zola]].
* BlackVikings: Last-minute aversion. A cut scene shows him fighting in Bucky and Dum Dum's unit ''before'' their capture, even though black soldiers were segregated from white at the time. However, the scene was cut, so the canon Jones may have previously fought in a segregated unit as per history.
* TheCasanova
-->'''Dum Dum''': You know French too?
-->'''Gabe''': French Girls are prettier.
* CunningLinguist: Being able to read German tank-controls allowed Jones to help Dum-Dum turn the tide in the battle of the concentration camp. It's also shown he knows French.
* EverythingsSexierInFrench: Including the ladies, according to him.

->'''Portrayed By''': Stanley Tucci
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

A German scientist and inventor of a SuperSoldier formula. He picks Rogers as the candidate out of an entire muscled platoon, believing that a weak man knew the value of strength, and knew that Rogers was a truly good man.
----
* AmbiguouslyJewish: His name "Abraham", his resemblance to AlbertEinstein, and his wife having been confirmed as Jewish in the tie-in comic all suggest this.
* AllGermansAreNazis: [[DefiedTrope Defies]] and [[AvertedTrope averts]] this trope. As Erskine notes; "many people forget" the first country the Nazis invaded was, in fact, Germany.
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:Helped create RedSkull.]]
** MyGreatestFailure: Allowing [[spoiler:[[RedSkull Schmidt]]]] to take the SuperSoldier serum.
* TheChooserOfTheOne: He chooses [[NiceGuy Steve]] [[MuscleAngst Rogers]] to be [[SuperSoldier Captain]] [[TheMessiah America]].
* CoolOldGuy: Especially in his conversation with Steve the night before the [[SuperSoldier procedure]] about drinking.
* [[spoiler:DeathByOriginStory]]
** [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile: Since he knows that if one person had to be picked to be the only one to get the full serum, it should have been [[NiceGuy Steve]].]]
** [[spoiler:CharacterDeath]]
** [[spoiler:TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth]]
* [[spoiler:FamousLastWords]]: Subverted, [[spoiler:instead he gently smiles and points to Steve's heart as he dies, reminding him to never forget his promise to stay a good man.]]
* ForScience: Despite that, he comes off as a very cool guy.
* HerrDoktor: Steve is initially suspicious of him because of this reason; His accent is German.
* NiceGuy: Insists on noble qualities for his super solider because he wants it to be used to end the war. He clearly isn't lacking in noble qualities himself.
* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: He intentionally kept all the notes to his super-serum in his head, as he didn't want anyone to replicate it and then misuse it.
* TheObiWan: To Steve; mentoring, empowering, [[spoiler: dying]]; the whole nine yards.
* ParentalSubstitute: In their friendship Abraham was a figure of kind wisdom ''and'' the man who allowed Steve Rogers to be reborn as a new man, effectively becoming his second-father in every sense of the word.
* TokenEnemyMinority: A German-born scientist working for the Allies in WWII.
* WideEyedIdealist: Is adamant in his belief that it takes a kind-heart to create the ultimate warrior, hence his choice of Steve as his candidate for the Super Soldier Serum test.

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/red_skull_ca2_6010.png]]
->''"You are deluded, Captain. You think of yourself as a simple soldier, but you are simply afraid to admit that we have left humanity behind! Unlike you, I embrace it proudly! Without fear!"''

->'''Portrayed By''': HugoWeaving
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''

A brilliant yet completely insane German scientist during World War II, the head of the Nazi party's deep science division HYDRA. His pursuit of power from NorseMythology turned him into a greater threat than AdolfHitler himself. Being a SuperSoldier [[PsychoPrototype prototype]] doesn't hurt either.
-----
* AGodAmI: Has one hell of a god complex. Gets deflated whenever Cap calls him out on it or acts humble despite his own commensurate super power.
* AllGermansAreNazis: Initially, then he becomes [[UpToEleven even worse]].
* AxCrazy: Everyone recognizes him as insane and his methods of employee disicipline are horrific.
* {{Badass}}: Dented Steve's first shield, which is why he needed the one made of Vibranium.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: Same as Steve
* BaldOfEvil: Post-procedure, though his false face still has hair.
* BigBad: He forms HYDRA, seeks out the tesseract and plots to take over the world; including Germany.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Due to the Super Soldier serum.
* CompositeCharacter: Of the Skull, Baron Strucker, and the first Baron Zemo.
* CoolCar: [[WatchThePaintJob and quite proud of it!]]
* ClarkesThirdLaw: He came up with it ''before [[ArthurCClarke Clarke]] himself''.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: After seeing Cap [[OneManArmy take down soldier after soldier]] when invading his base, Schmidt decides to simply activate the self-destruct rather than try to fight this guy. He also has no problem with [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim just shooting his enemies]], including his rival.
* DeadpanSnarker: When a soldier says his unit 'fought to the last man' he replies 'Evidentally not' and kills him.
* EvilCounterpart: Much like Cap, he also had been injected with the serum. Unlike Cap, he [[spoiler:betrays his own country]] and is pretty much hell-bent on world domination.
* EvilMakesYouUgly: Or at least an imperfect SuperSoldier Serum does when ''mixed'' with internal evil.
* EvilPlan: Use the Tesseract to create super weapons and take over the world.
* EvilerThanThou: To ''the Nazis''.
* FacialHorror: His entire head is a deformed, red skull shape, albeit with eyes, due to taking the unfinished SuperSoldier serum.
* LargeHam
* {{Narcissist}}: Has one of his minions paint a portrait of him [[{{Squick}} with entrails]].
** "This want not meant for eyes of ordinary men."
** "Precisely."
* TheNoseless: Justified; he's a skull and the nose is made of cartilege.
* PersonalityPowers: The Super Soldier Serum "...amplifies everything inside. Good becomes great. Bad becomes worse." Thus, a psychopathic Nazi who gave ''AdolfHitler'' the creeps essentially becomes the GrimReaper and even crazier than ever, with power to match his madness.
* PragmaticVillainy: Schmidt could have easily left Zola to die, but instead gives him the keys to his CoolCar... of course, the only reason he does that is out of concern for his car.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: After Schmidt's transformation, Hitler "gives" him a secret base in the Alps. The Red Skull knows that he's really being exiled. [[ReassignmentBackfire However, it gives Schmidt enough privacy to turn HYDRA into his personal army.]]
* [[RedRightHand Red Skull Face]]: Though he does have a fleshy mask to cover it.
* SkullForAHead: It's in the name.
* TheSociopath: Feels free to ignore morality and empathy because he was serumed.
* TheStarscream: He has his minions chanting "Heil HYDRA". Eventually he's revealed to have Berlin as one of his targets for annihilation, and kills the Nazi officers who come to look through his projects.
* SuperSoldier: Same as Steve.
** PsychoPrototype: His serum was flawed and he is evil so it made him more psycho then he already was.
* TearOffYourFace: Inverted. To show what he really looks like, he tears off his ''own'' face (or at least the false one) to show to Cap.
* VillainousBreakdown: "'''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVmBAd76kak YOU ARE FAILING!]]'''"
* VillainsOutShopping: He recognizes Captain America on security monitors and calls to him by name, saying he's a fan of his films. These observations ''do'' beg the question of what he does in his spare time. Considering that the people said films likely pit the Captain against are the Nazis that Schmidt has broken away from, that statement may not be sarcasm.
* WickedCultured: Shows an appreciation for folklore (for business purposes) and has his picture painted the old fashioned way.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Though he certainly manages it well and in fact it's [[PowerBornOfMadness all but outright stated by Zola]], who notes that the sanity (or lack thereof) of his plans are irrelevant, because he can carry them out.
* YouHaveFailedMe

Weapons designer for HYDRA, and right hand man to Schmitt.
----
* AntiVillain: Work for the Nazis, and then for HYDRA, but has no real desire for conquest; he just wants to create inventions and save his own skin.
* BystanderSyndrome: As mentioned, he only ''makes'' HYDRA's weapons. Beyond that is another matter entirely.
* EvilCounterpart: To Dr. Erskine, and also Howard Stark.
* EvilGenius: His designs were even above what Howard Stark or Schmidt could design alone.
* EvilVegetarian: When [[spoiler:Col. Phillips]] offers him a steak, Zola refuses it, saying meat doesn't agree with him. However, he may have been lying since he suspected the meat was poisoned. (It wasn't.)
* HerrDoktor: A german scientist who makes mad science weapons.
* ForScience: He just builds his awesome glowing blue machines. HYDRA and Schmidt are the ones who actually ''use'' them.
* FourEyesZeroSoul
* MadScientist: Though he's [[OnlySaneMan much saner]] than [[AxCrazy Red Skull]].
** ReluctantMadScientist: He'd rather build his designs in a enviroment that did not require chanting 'Hail Hydra'.
* MythologyGag: His first appearance on screen is that of a distorted head in a screen, mirroring his most iconic incarnation. Later he's seen taking paper with the designs of said robot body.
* NotAfraidToDie: Subverted. [[spoiler:Philips points out that Zola didn't have a personal cyanide pill to swallow when he got captured, unlike so many other HYDRA agents, which means he prefers to live. This makes him easy to blackmail.]]
* OnlySaneMan: Especially compared to Schmidt, who is unrelentingly called insane throughout the film - even by Zola himself.
* TheStarscream: DoubleSubvertedTrope. [[spoiler:While he does seem alarmed by Red Skull's SanitySlippage, he maintains a firm belief in his ideals. Despite that, he still isn't willing to throw his life away for the cause, and sells Red Skull out for his own safety.]]

The Red Skull's private army, which was originally the Nazi science division but then developed Tesseract powered weaponry and broke away to become their own faction. Racial supremacy and facism is still their core philosophy, and world domination their goal.
----
* BadassCreed: See the quote above.
* CoolPlane: Two: The Valkyrie bomber, a flying wing aircraft based off the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horten_H.XVIII Horten H.XVIII]] prototype, and the Red Skull's personal helicopter, based off of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focke-Wulf_Triebflügel Triebflügeljäger]].
* {{Determinator}}s: [[ClassicalMythology Like the mythological Hydra]], the Red Skull's troopers will only keep coming after every seemingly fatal blow.
* EliteMooks: The massive HYDRA troopers who wield dual cannons and flamethrowers.
* GasMaskMooks
* FrickinLaserBeams
* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: Too blind to prevent [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica a single soldier with a brightly colored shield]] from sneaking into their base. One even pokes his head around a door to see who's knocking (and gets knocked out for it), [[TooDumbToLive despite the fact the door has a window]]!
* PuttingOnTheReich: Inverted, instead they ''take off'' the Reich and become their own racial supremacist faction, though still retaining some Nazi traits.
* RenegadeSplinterFaction: From the Nazis.
* StateSec: Started off as this, growing from a research division to a high-tech army. Then the Red Skull goes rogue...
* StupidJetpackHitler [[XMeetsY powered by]] {{Ghostapo}}: They were originally formed as the Nazi science division, and were led by [[RedSkull a man with a fascination with mythological artifacts]].
