** And in the [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger film version]], Peggy Carter, who, instead of being a member of the French Resistance, actually works for the U.S. government agency responsible for turning Steve into a super-soldier. Depending on her relation to Sharon Carter and how closely they follow the comics, this could make things awkward for Steve.

Cap's mantle was taken up in 2008 by ComicBook/BuckyBarnes, Steve Rogers' WWII boy sidekick who, [[NotQuiteDead rather than dying at the hands of Baron Zemo]] was brainwashed into the Soviet killing machine Winter Soldier and kept in SuspendedAnimation much of the time that he wasn't on missions to explain his age. Cap later freed Bucky from his Brainwashing with the help of the Cosmic Cube, allowing him to make a HeelFaceTurn. In addition to having a bio-mechanical left arm and a new armored costume, he also carries a gun. Prior to being the Winter Soldier, Bucky was often cited as one of the three people in comics who would always stay dead.

*** Isaiah Bradley was the only survivor of a government program to recreate the super soldier serum using black men as test subjects.[[note]]As the title of his debut story ''Truth: Red, White & Black'' implies, he was originally supposed to be the {{retcon}}ned-in prototype for Steve Rogers, but then the story was pitched to be in AlternateContinuity. While ''Truth'' was in progress, it was decided that it would be {{canon}}ical after all. But since the story is (fortuitously) set in 1942, Steve and his serum still came first. But the story sure ''reads'' like Isaiah was first, and later writers have thus confused the order.[[/note]] Out of hundreds, only a few men survived the serum tests and Isaiah was the last of them because they were sent on missions without any protection. For his last mission, he stole a spare uniform and shield of Steve's - and was captured and remained a prisoner until the end of the war. Then he was imprisoned for treason (stealing Steve's stuff) until he was pardoned by JFK and sworn to secrecy. Despite this, he became an urban legend as "the black Captain America," revered by African-Americans and completely unknown to anyone else for decades due to extensive government cover-ups. Steve eventually found out about everything. to his horror, and paid his respects. By this time, Isaiah had suffered brain damage due to the imperfectly recreated serum. Isaiah's grandson, Eli Bradley, took up his legacy and that of Jeffrey Mace, as Patriot. For bonus points, Eli also got Steve's original triangular shield.

*** Isaiah Bradley was the only survivor of an illegal experiment using black men as test subjects regarding the super soldier serum. He used his enhanced strength and the identity of Captain America to be a hero before Steve did, and became an urban legend as "the black Captain America," revered by African-Americans and completely unknown to anyone else due to extensive government cover-ups. He suffered brain damage due to the imperfect serum, and his grandson, Eli Bradley, took up his legacy and that of Jeffrey Mace, as Patriot. For bonus points, Eli also got Steve's triangular shield.

* A clearly Ultimate-inspired Cap appeared in the ''UltimateAvengers'' animated films (2006) [[note]]Well, sort of. While Cap does wear costumes that are directly lifted from The Ultimates, his personality seems to be more in line with his Earth 616 counterpart, so he's a CompositeCharacter, if anything.[[/note]].

*** After their "deaths" in WWII, HarryTruman asked the similarly-themed hero Spirit of '76, William Naslund, and Bucky's friend Fred Davis to take over as Captain America and Bucky, to keep America's morale up. After Naslund died in the line of duty, Jeffrey Mace, another flag-themed superhero called Patriot, finished his mission and took over as Cap.
