Captain America: Reborn on the Fourth of July – A look back at Steve Rogers
The original Captain America returns in “Captain America: Reborn,” out this week from Marvel Comics. With the Fourth of July weekend upon us, here’s a look back at some of the greatest story lines featuring Steve Rogers, Marvel’s patriotic superhero.
Captain America discovers a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of the U.S. government. He’s disillusioned by what he’s discovered, and gives up the Captain America identity to become Nomad. This Watergate-era Captain America examined what happened to the country’s greatest super-heroic symbol when the government failed to live up to his trust. “Secret Empire” ran in issues 169-176 of “Captain America.” “Nomad” ran in issues 177-186.
Englehart said Captain America is a product of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s rebuilding of the country’s spirit.
“He believes deeply in the ideals of America, the things they taught us all in school about why this is the greatest country on Earth,” Englehart said in “Marvel Spotlight” No. 18, the “Captain America” theme issue. “Which is why, when the actual America falls short of that, his first reaction is to try to set things right.”
