Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew Up… as Steve Rogers in 1920s Brooklyn with a single mother after his soldier father was killed during World War I. As a scrawny child, he was often bullied by his peers, though he had one lifelong friend – James “Bucky” Barnes.

Visiting… the German warfront of World War II. Steve, as Captain America, is on a promotional tour when he learns that Bucky’s unit is in trouble and insists on traveling to save him.  

Profession… the US government’s only super soldier, known as Captain America. Following the loss of the scientific formula that turned Rogers into a super soldier, he is forced to work as a tool of American war propaganda, rather than fighting on the front lines.

Interests… drawing and exercising. Steve had never been particularly good at either, until he became Captain America. 

Relationship Status… single. Though he has a certain connection with Peggy Carter, a top-notch UK operative with whom Steve often crosses paths with during the war effort. 

Challenge… following the advice of the creator of the super soldier formula, scientist Abraham Erskine. Before allowing Steve to undergo his transformation, Erskine insists, “Whatever happens tomorrow you must promise me one thing. That you will stay who you are. Not a perfect soldier, but a good man.” Steve is a good man, but one who often feels pressure to be the unstoppable soldier everyone wants him to be, and the two things don’t always fit together.

Personality… noble, chivalrous, and idealistic. Steve believes in doing the right thing above all else; he is loyal, to Bucky and to his country. He’s a romantic, a do-gooder, and he does not easily give up. After his difficult childhood, Steve often identifies with underdogs, and takes it upon himself to protect them.
