Steve 'Captain America' Rogers - The Avengers

Steve Rogers from The Avengers played by Chris Evans.

Steve Rogers is a fictional male Human in the The Avengers comic series who was played on screen by Chris Evans. The character Captain America was created at the time of the World War. It was created for people to look up to and respect. He was synomous with carrying a shield and wearing the colours of the American flag. He sometimes carries a gun but the shield is more prevalent using for both protection and smacking the enemy.

The Birth of Captain America, World War 2

Steve Rogers was a weak individual born just before the Second World War. He signed up to fight but he was deemed to unfit for infantry. Steve join a project led by Colonel Chester Phillips in which they hope to turn men into super soldiers. After stepping into the machine and coming out, Steve Rogers is now a bulked up soldier, ready to take his place alongside other soldiers. At the start, he was partnered with his friend James Buchanan, aka Bucky but Bucky would disappear during a mission together and be presumed dead.

In his first mission, he led his men to defeat the Red Skull who was leader at that time of Hydra, a terrorist organisation that would follow through in history. The first mission would be to steal a tessaract object from the Nazis before they could use it. Whilst flying with the Tessaract, his plane crashes and he's frozen in ice, to be thawed out after being discovered by S.H.I.E.L.D.

During his time in the past, he had built up a friendship with British spy Peggy Carter. Peggy would go on to have her own show which would last a few series before being canned. Peggy stayed back in the World War.

In the Present

Captain America has to deal with the reality that his enemy, Hydra is also alive and kicking in the present world. Hydra has infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. and Captain America assisted by both Samuel Wilson a.k.a. Falcon and Natasha Romanoff try to find out the threat.

Hydra have an assassin working for them, he is referred to as the Winter Soldier. The assassin is revealed to be Steve's friend from the past, Bucky. Steve sets out to try and break Hydra's control over Bucky's whilst dealing with Alexander Pierce, a senior member of S.H.I.E.L.D. At the time, S.H.I.E.L.D. had powerful flying ships, vehicles that could stay in the air for a long time which if Hydra gained control of would be a game changer.

Steve manages to regain Bucky's loyalty, destroy the ships and defeat Alexander Pierce from taking control of the World. In order to save S.H.I.E.L.D., they end up destroying the organisation, only to rebuild it later when the Hydra agents have been outed.


Captain America would be an active member of The Avengers when Loki launches a full scale attack on Earth with the help of an advanced alien race.

Rogers also helps out when Ultron, an advanced robot built by Stark Industries has a mind of its own and proves to be troublesome for the Avengers. Ultron wants to lift up a city then drop it down on the Earth thus creating an Extinction Level incident which would mimic the meteor that destroyed the dinosaurs millions of years ago.

Civil War

When the Superhero Registration Act came into force, the Avengers of which Steve was part of splintered into two. Tony Stark saw the Act as being a good idea, Captain America saw it in a bad light and objected to it. The Avengers splintered. Although it was referred to as Captain America: Civil War, it was in fact an Avengers Civil War film. Natasha Romanoff who Steve was close to, sided with Iron Man first but would eventually change sides to side with Captain America.

Infinity War

After the events of the Civil War, Steve Rogers broke off contact with the rest of the Avengers. When Bruce Banner returned to Earth, Bruce persuaded Tony Stark to reach out and contact Steve. Thanos was coming and he was coming for the stones that Doctor Stephen Strange and Vision had. If anyone was able to protect Vision, it would be Steve Rogers.

When Thanos's forces discover Vision and Scarlet Witch , Steve Rogers , Samuel Wilson and Natasha Romanoff turn up at the station to fend off Thanos's forces and save Vision. Steve Rogers sticks with the Avengers to see it all through to the end. Steve Rogers fight to prevent Thanos from taking the last stone from Vision in Wakandia, the secret African country controlled by T'Challa but is not successful.

Whilst Avenger heroes such as Peter Parker a.k.a. Spiderman disintegrates, Steve Rogers is safe from the destruction wrought on the fifty percent of the Universe


When Tony Stark returns to Earth with the help of Carol Danvers, the Avengers track down and kill Thanos in revenge but aren't able to roll back the Snap event as the Infinity Stones are destroyed.

Scott Lang comes up with a way to travel back into the past and take the stones out of histroy to create a new Infinity Gauntlet. Steve Rogers travels back to a time when Loki was bringing chaos in New York. During the time, Steve Rogers would come face to face and fight a younger self.

Loki would steal the Space stone forcing Steve Rogers and Tony Stark to travel further back in time to get their hands on the Space stone. The plan worked and a new Infinity Gauntlet was created which brought the dead back. It also led to Thanos coming into the present. Thanos would be defeated again.

Once everything had been successfuly returned to normal, Steve Rogers went back in time and put the stones back where they were supposed to be. Steve didn't return to the present, instead he returned to the forties and his one true love, Peggy Carter so that he could live out his life with her.

Whilst putting the stones back through time into their original location, Steve Rogers would've encounter Red Skull on Vormir. Seeing Steve put any of the stone back was never shown in the film but it would've been interesting to see Captain America face Red Skull again.

At the end, an Old Steve Rogers appeared at Tony Stark's funeral service to hand on his shield to the next Captain America who would be Samuel Rhodes. In the comics, the shield was passed to Bucky.

Death of Steve Rogers

In the comics, Steve Rogers was killed in 2007. The death was covered in a special story known as the Death of Captain America. It happened in the aftermath of the Civil War. Captain America is shot by Crossbones on the orders of Red Skull. The mantle of Captain America is passed to Bucky Barnes who has to be persuaded to take on the role. The other Avenger character hunt for the assassin.

Captain Britain

Just in case you was curious, Marvel created a Captain Britain. Britain also known as Brian Baddock is more superhuman than Captain America, empowered by magical power by Merlyn, the mythical wizard from King Arthur's court. The stories are not rehashes of Captain America, they are different stories. Whilst America has the Avengers, Britain has his own force. When the next Marvel phase, we may see Captain Britain.
