First appearance: Captain America Comics #1 (1941)
A scrawny Army reject at the outset of World War II, Steve Rogers became a powerful Super Hero and decorated veteran known as Captain America by the war’s end. Denied entrance into the armed forces due to his health, Steve realized his only hope of fighting for liberty and justice was to volunteer for a risky military science experiment. He was injected with Super-Soldier Serum and physically transformed into a powerful enemy of evil with legendary strength of body and spirit.
An accident near the end of the war left Captain America frozen in suspended animation until the modern day, making him at first a fish-out-of-water in much the same way as the newly-resurrected Hunter…with the additional complication of having more experience fighting Hydra than supernatural demon-kin. However, Cap’s eagerness to serve the good of humankind meant he didn’t hesitate to answer the call of the Midnight Suns.
Captain America soaks up damage intended for allies, taunting enemies to focus their fire on him and building up shielding to keep his own health bar from getting blitzed. However, because he also understands that sometimes the best defense is a good offense, some of Cap’s abilities allow him to convert the Block he’s generated into bonus damage.
