Bucky did a pretty good job filling in for Steve, but, [[FirstLawOfResurrection this being superhero comics]], Steve eventually came back. However, Steve felt that wielding the shield was good for Bucky and insisted that he continue on as Captain America until his apparent death in the ''Comicbook/FearItself'' CrisisCrossover, when Rogers took up the role again. Prior to the upcoming ''ComicBook/{{Axis}}'' storyline, Steve will be forced to hand over the title of Captain America to his old partner Sam Wilson, the Falcon, after the Super Soldier Serum is removed from him, turning him into an old man. Notably, Sam is the first person Steve has '''chosen''' to wield the shield. While Steve has expressed his approval of and respect for Captains America William Naslund, Jeff Mace, Isaiah Bradley, Bucky Barnes, etc., it was always after the fact.

While Cap's adventures were written and published throughout the [[TheForties 1940s]] and early [[TheFifties 1950s]], StanLee and a returning Jack Kirby {{retcon}}ned his history in 1964: the post-War Caps who fought Communism were impostors (first other superheroes and then an AscendedFanboy who went insane with a flawed imitation of the Super Serum), and the "original" Cap was killed in action, but they NeverFoundTheBody. Naturally, he came back from [[HumanPopsicle suspended animation]] to join Comicbook/TheAvengers, bringing his old-style patriotism and battle tactics to the table, eventually ascending to leadership. However, Cap also had to deal with being a man out of his time, with everyone he knew being long gone, while also being plagued with [[MyGreatestFailure his greatest failure]] -- not being able to save his sidekick's life in their final fight against Baron Zemo -- until Rick Jones finally told him to [[QuitYourWhining quit his whining]] and move on. Cap took that advice, and while the ComicBook/RedSkull drove Rick away when impersonating Cap, Rogers got a new partner, ComicBook/TheFalcon, who was with him for years.

** During the ''[[VillainTeamUp Acts of Vengeance]]'', SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong tried to put the Red Skull on a supervillain team with]] the Mandarin (who is Chinese), Doctor Doom (Romani), and ComicBook/{{Magneto}} (''Jewish Holocaust survivor''... who spent time among Romany), among others. They tended to look at the Skull like something you'd scrape off your shoe. Magneto ends the team-up by [[BuriedAlive burying him alive]].

* SuperheroPackingHeat: Cap's original incarnation used guns in addition to his nigh-invulnerable shield, in keeping with his status as a SuperSoldier fighting Nazis in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. It wasn't until TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks that Cap ditched the guns and just stuck to just using his shield. The 2011 movie based on him is set DuringTheWar, and looks to be a return to his [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] roots (makes sense since it's during the war). Fan reactions are... somewhat mixed. Recently he once again carries a piece (but prefers not to use it). Bucky plays this straight.

* The animated series ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' (2010-2012) includes Captain America as one of the major characters. In a manner paralleling {{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} ''Avengers'' comics, he became the sixth superhero to join the team. Chronologically speaking, four episodes pass in between the event that led to the founding of the Avengers, and the events that led to Cap joining their team, just as his comic incarnation joined in issue ''four'' of the first ''Avengers'' volume.
