** When even ''ComicBook/TheJoker'' won't work with you (and this was the baddie who once became the ''Iranian ambassador!''), you've crossed a line.

As a skinny orphan artist who grew up in TheGreatDepression, Steve Rogers JumpedAtTheCall, but the US Army declared him 4-F (unfit for service), and handed him over to Operation: Rebirth, an Allied Powers project headed by Professor Erksine to create a SuperSoldier for the war effort. Injected with SuperSerum and bombarded with radiation, Rogers' treatment proved a complete success with his scrawny body suddenly enhanced to the maximum human potential. Unfortunately, a Nazi spy immediately assassinated Dr. Erksine at that moment and the formula of the treatment, which was never completely written down, was lost forever.

2016 proves to be a rather shocking year for Steve Rogers as in the end of the very first volume of the comic ''ComicBook/CaptainAmericaSteveRogers'', he uttered [[WhamLine the shocking words: "Hail HYDRA".]] This sent fandom to a complete frenzy to see the patriotic American icon revealed to be a Nazi, everything he stood against. For about a year, Nazi!Steve was amongst the headline of Marvel, but as it turned out, it was caused by the AnthropomorphicPersonification of the Cosmic Cube, Kobik, trying to make a better world by rewriting reality (but unfortunately thought that HYDRA would be good). All of it came to an end in the 2017 CrisisCrossover ''Comicbook/SecretEmpire'' where eventually thanks to the efforts of other heroes (including Sam Wilson), Kobik restored reality and the real Steve Rogers returned, defeated Nazi!Steve and resumed being the real Captain America, though the latter still somehow existed. So now we have two Steve Rogers around.

* Cap made various guest appearances and cameos in the 90's Marvel cartoons, like [[WesternAnimation/XMen X-Men]] (appearing as an alternate version in another, Professor X-less future, and in one of the last episodes, teaming up with Wolverine in World War II), major roles in [[WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries Spider-Man: TAS]], and a couple of cameos as part of The Avengers in [[WesternAnimation/FantasticFour Fantastic Four]], and a guest role in the horrible late 90s [[WesternAnimation/TheAvengersUnitedTheyStand Avengers cartoon]]. He was planned to get his own series at that point (stories, character models, and a one-minute pitchfilm were all made), but was canned because of Marvel's bankruptcy; its slot in the FoxKids lineup was filled by ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretFilesOfTheSpyDogs''.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Cap's cowl was originally a separate piece of material like a hat, which was soon changed to a full connected cowl. JohnByrne later explained that Cap had it knocked off in a fight and his secret identity was almost exposed as a result. To fight that, Cap modified with connecting material to the rest of his costume, which had the added benefit of covering his neck with his costume's armor.

* TheFettered: Captain America is the embodiment of America's ideals and virtues, and has throughout his run has avoided killing whenever possible (well, there was a vampire that one time, but he doesn't count). He's killed several times, but it's always been only when he has no choice, and causes much angst. During World War II, he did kill people, but he was a soldier, and it's not something he boasts about. He also frets about damage to churches, and is very accommodating to accountants trying to total up superfight destruction.

*** Although, as the original poster noted, he actually ''defeated'' the Cosmic Cube. [[HeroKiller Thanos...]][[FaceDeathWithDignity not so much.]]

** Probably the [[UpToEleven biggest good]] in all comics. Howso? During the JLA/Avegers crossover, ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'' himself deferred to Cap.
