- Movies he's appeared in: Captain America leads the way in Captain America: The First Avenger.
- What you need to know about him: Also known as Steve Rogers, Captain America started out as a scrawny young lad with dreams of fighting in World War II. He volunteers for an experiment that beefs him up and turns him into a super soldier. Though he excels on the battlefield, he's ultimately frozen and wakes up over 50 years later, when he's recruited by Nick Fury. Not only is Steve a fish out of water in present-day, but he's a bit bitter that all of his friends and family are gone — including Howard Stark, Steve's dear friend who just so happens to be Tony Stark's father.
