Captain America has a back story as tragic as any super-hero. Growing up Steve Rogers, a weak and sickly boy in a poor family, he suffered the loss of his father when he was a youngster, and then his mother when he was a teen. Spurred by wartime propaganda, he tried to enlist in the army, only to fail due to his physical inadequacies. However, one dose of super soldier serum later and… We have Captain America, the All-American hero, as American as apple pie. Cap hasn’t always been on good terms with America. He’s lost faith in the USA more than once. In the 70’s Marvel played out events echoingthat of the Watergate scandal. This led to a new costume and name, the Nomad.During this era he became known as the ‘Man Without a Country’. Then in the late 90’s after losing faith in the American Government, he loses the patriotism from his name and is known simply as, The Captain.
