Steve Rogers was the United States’ super soldier during World War II. He volunteered for an experiment which gave him superhuman strength and agility. Armed with a near unbreakable shield, he battled the Axis of Evil. Towards the end of the war, he jumped onto a Nazi drone plane, and when the plane exploded, Cap was thrown into icy Arctic waters, where he was frozen for years until he was rescued by the Avengers. Despite being the weakest member, Cap quickly became the leader of the team. His leadership has guided the Avengers through many incarnations, the rock they all look up to.
