The hero known as Captain America was born when young Steve Rogers, a veritable weakling who wished to serve in the military, was injected with a secret serum, giving him super human abilities.
Captain America thus made his debut in Marvel's Captain America Comics #1 in 1941. This patriotic super hero was released when World War II was raging in Europe, one year prior to the United State's entry into the war.
In the first issue, the character was depicted as punching German leader Adolf Hitler.
Captain America and other superheroes were popular during the war years of the 1940s, but waned thereafter. "The Cap" was revived in 1964 with a new line of comic books.
Since that time, he has also starred in animated television series and feature films, going on to become the leader of the superhero squad known as the Avengers.
The most recent revival in film began in 2011 with the release of Captain America: The First Avenger.
