|In 1941 a sickly, frail, weak man volunteered to serve his country in a highly-dangerous experimental program. Injected with the hyper-secret super-soldier formula and subjected to the stabilizing vita-rays, this weakling transformed, his body raised to the height of human perfection.
The fellow was named Steve Rogers, and he thus became Captain America. Over time he has become a shining icon of hope and determination, protecting the weak, and fighting to overcome those who would extinguish the torches of liberty!
Olympic-level athlete with gymnastic and combat training. Steve Rogers is considered by many to be the ultimate synthesis of combat skills, command, strength, endurance, and most importantly, fighting spirit.
