The Captain is the child of Black Widow and Captain America. He formed and was the leader of the original incarnation of the Avengers of his world, but later lost this position to Time-Lord. Despite having no actual super-powers, the Captain is an asset to his team, and well loved by the world he protects.
James Rogers was born on a breezy summer day, according to Captain America. He had a warm childhood. He was home-schooled for early years, so he could also be taught combat by his parents. He loved his parents, but not when they decided to send him to public school, starting at middle school. These years would change James, not even because he began aging rapidly.
When he graduated from high school, he decided to join the Army, since he had a sufficient knowledge of Cap's history and combat knowledge. He joined under the name Captain America, which the elder Rogers let him have, and stayed for 6 months. He enjoyed recounting days of Captain America's yore, but felt something was missing. So he left camp in the middle of the night, and was on the next flight home.
Upon returning home, both of his parents were delighted to see him. Captain America was a bit upset that he just up and left the Army, but he said he felt out of place there. Cap left him. Meanwhile, there were rumors of villain trouble making a comeback. So James removed the "A" from the top of his costume, removed his army gear, and set out to recruit a new generation of Avengers. He was successful in recruiting Iron Knight, Spider-Web, and Ghostdevil. Later, his quartet would be joined by Howl and Odinforce. With the arrival of the All-New All-Different Avengers line-up, the Fantastic Five, and a brand-new, revamped X-Men roster came protection the world had never seen. And James was proud to have started a new era in super-heroics.
