Captain America



Physically frail army recruit Steve Rogers is a test subject for a wartime Super-Soldier project. Given a powerful serum, he is transformed into a supremely strong and agile secret agent and takes on the name Captain America.

The comic book character was originally created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, and has appeared in numerous other visual media including video games, live-action and animated TV shows and films.

Chris Evans currently portrays the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He made his debut in the role in 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, and was a part of the ensemble cast for The Avengers in 2012. He will next appear in Captain America: The Winter Soldier - released in spring 2014 - and The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which follows in May 2015.
