Captain America was a proud warrior and a loyal soldier. Cap started his career fighting the Nazi army during World War Two alongside the Invaders, but after being trapped in ice, awakened in the modern world. Captain America was not a puppet of the goverment, believing in what America stands for over the people who run it. Steve Rogers, the original Captain America is now dead and his mantle has been taken up by his sidekick Bucky Barnes.
After being turned down by the Army, Steve Rogers volunteered for the Super Soldier program, which made him bigger, stronger, faster and smarter. Donning a costume and shield he became the goverment-liscened hero Captain America. During World War Two, Winston Churchill recommended that Cap form a group with his fellow super-heroes at the time- prince of Atlantis Namor and the humanoid andro known as the Human Torch. Captain America molded the Invaders into a deadly fighting force and fought the Axis powers anywhere and everywhere.
When the Axis-affiliated terrorist group H.Y.D.R.A. attempted to set up a base on the Bering Strait in North America, Captain America requested a small team including the Canadian soldier Jim "Lucky" Howlett. The team quickly crushed the H.Y.D.R.A. base and stopped the expansion of Axis forces into North America. After the war's end Cap went missing over the Atlantic Ocean. Despite the War Department's best efforts, no one was able to locate the super soldier, never knowing he was actually frozen in a block of ice below the waters.
After being reawakened in the modern times Captain America joined the Avengers, and was transported alongside them to Battleworld by the Beyonder. Cap was made the leader of the hero army, and used his strategic mind and combat experience to help the heroes survive before finally returning home with the other heroes (minus the Thing) and villains.
Captain America's death came tragically during the Civil War, and while details are scarce, it has effected every person in the Marvel Universe. Tony Stark was so devestated by his friend's death that he created Project: Flagpole to take the Ultimate universe Captain America to the his universe, but Reed Richards managed to talk sense into him before the plan could begin.
