Steve Rogers is a fictional male Human in the The Avengers comic series who was portrayed 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.
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.
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.
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.
During the Infinity Wars, Steve Rogers has grown a beard and is one of the few to be alive by the end of it. Steve returns in Endgame, having shaved off his beard and back to how we remember him alongside Natasha.
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 who Steve was close to, sided with Iron Man first but would eventually change sides to side with Captain America.
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.
