Added DiffLines:

** After he came BackFromTheDead before ''ComicBook/{{Siege}}'', he refused to take up the shield full-time, instead letting ComicBook/BuckyBarnes continue as Captain America until his FakingTheDead during ''ComicBook/FearItself''
** When his Super Soldier Serum is deactivated, he gives the identity and shield to ComicBook/TheFalcon as he's been rendered an old man. When [[RealityWarper Kobik]] restores Steve to full, he tells Sam to keep using the name and the shield, though he'll be back in the saddle as well, missing the adventure of it all.


Added DiffLines:

* FeudEpisode: Steve's had a few over the years, though his time as Old Man Steve double-downed on this, between his war against Tony Stark during the tail end of ''ComicBook/JonathanHickmansAvengers'' and his spat with Sam Wilson at the start of the ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel era.

* BackportedDevelopment: The first time around the Super Soldier Serum was simply a single injection that transformed Steve. Now, since the movie, it's a series of injections and radiation treatments and possibly even a genetic modification through a virus with no traces of special chemicals whatsoever.

This [[TropesAreNotBad notably justifies]] the amount of failures at replicating such a complicated process.

* AbortedArc: Played with. The Captain America stories in ''Tales of Suspense'' took place in [=WW2=] for the better part of 1965; at one point, Steve had to desert his platoon in order to change into Cap. Apparently, he was about to get into trouble because of it, but then he was brought back into the present at the readers' request. Cap was then depicted as having related the previous storyline to the Avengers, and mentioned that Army Intelligence, who knew about his SecretIdentity, had simply provided him with a cover story. The Nazis also had some kind of [[IncredibleShrinkingMan shrinking ray]] in that storyline but ultimately didn't use it.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterShilling: He is supposed to be TheParagon, but in some cases writers take his leadership ability a tad too far. An example is {{Comicbook/Infinity}}, where he alone is the reason the intergalactic armies prevail against the Builders, despite the presence of people like Gladiator or Ronan who have far more experience in intergalactic warfare. He also is often put against people in a fight who are normally way out of his league, like Wolverine, Spider-Man or even serious powerhouses like the Hulk.

* EvilCounterpart: 50s Cap.

to:

* EvilCounterpart: EvilCounterpart:
**
50s Cap.Cap, when [[DependingOnTheWriter his sanity takes a downturn]]. Thanks to the SuperSoldier serum damaging his mind, he has a tendency to become mentally locked in extremist interpretations of 50s standards of morality, resulting in him lashing out like a violent bigot with SuperStrength at anything that a typical 50s joe would consider indecent (like, say, mixed-race marriage, homosexuals, black people considering themselves equal to whites...) This trait is so strong that Arnim Zola once tried to use an unstable 50s Cap to ignite a violent racial war in America.
** Minor Marvel villain Nuke is an even clearer example. He's an American SuperSoldier, like Cap, he shares a similar "chemical based enhancements" power source/back story, and in fact the project that created him is officially descended from the project that created Captain America. However, whilst Captain America was a volunteer, Nuke was abducted and forced into the role, being mentally "broken in" with a regime of brainwashing and physical torture. Cap believes in the basic principles of the American dream and is not afraid to call the country itself out when he feels it is allowing nationalistic pride to obscure those principles. Nuke is a fanatical believer in MyCountryRightOrWrong. Captain America is calm, rational and willing to talk before resorting to violence, whilst Nuke is a drugged-up berserker who's always a hair trigger away from gunning down everyone in sight as a "Commie". It even gets played up in their origin stories; Captain America was created for UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, when America had a clear and unambivalent position as "the good guys" against the genocidal butchery of the Nazis, whilst Nuke was created for UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar, where America's moral standing was far murkier and heavily questioned even at the time. The UltimateMarvel version of Nuke really plays it up by changing Nuke's origin slightly; he was an actual attempt to create a new Captain America, this time one to fight in the Vietnam War. And whilst Ultimate Captain America still considers his country worth defending and trying to redeem when it goes off the rails, Ultimate Nuke broke down and turned against America when he realised all of the morally awful things it was doing in that period.

* TheStateless: In the aftermath of the Secret Empire (a conspiracy to take control of the United States led by a thinly-veiled version of then-president UsefulNotes/RichardNixon), Steve Rogers lost faith in his country and abandoned his identity as CaptainAmerica, adopting the persona "Nomad".

* 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''.
