Superhero Origins: Captain America
Chosen as the first human test subject to receive super-soldier serum, Rogers was given a super-hero persona and a uniform modeled after the American flag, based on his own illustrations. Vowing to serve as both a counter-propaganda force, and counter-intelligence agent, he was reborn as Captain America. In this role, he would stand as a red, white and blue symbol of freedom, armed with nothing but an indestructible disc-shaped shield. Facing off against Red Skull, the head of Germany’s terrorist operations, he would be accompanied by a fellow soldier who became his loyal sidekick Bucky.
