Captain America

Name: Franco Arellano

Reason: The U.S Government gave Steve Rogers a costume based on the American Flag, an unbreakable shield and named him Captain America as the first super solider to fight the Nazi’s. His ancestor of Steven Rogers was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. He was so patriotic and effective that his fellow soldiers nicknamed him “Captain America.” This was the first time the name was ever used, and it may have been the inspiration for the current title of Captain America.

Captain America

His name was given to him by the United States government FDR gave him his costume after the doctor that gave him the super serum was killed by a Nazi. Wanting to do the most with what they had left (since the ingredients for the serum were never written down so nazis couldn’t steal it) The government decided to use Steve Rogers as a superhero.

Kirby named him Captain American to be different from all the “super” heroes and felt that the patriotic spin would help sell comics.

I'm sure the wiki on Cap'n America was flooded with visitors!

Ivan Guerrero

So to reiterate what has been said he was a one-of a kind super soldier created to fight Hitler, Red Skull and other nasties threatening the way of life. He stands for freedom and rightousness, a symbol and beacon of a force that will never give up, never surrender, he is the personification of America. ‘Captain’ just makes him the leader! :)

Steve Rogers volunteered during WWII and and gained his super-powers through the Super-Soldier Serum, transforming him into a symbol of (American) liberty: Captain America.

  • Stephanie Buxbaum

    CHICAGO – In the history of “Reality TV” there has been periods of up-and-down popularity, shows that have been around seemingly forever (“Big Brother,” “Amazing Race”) and spinoffs to new styles like “documentary series” as networks like the National Geographic Channel emerged. In all those permutations, producer Stephanie Buxbaum has experienced it all, and has the career and stories to prove it.

  • Deadbeat2

    CHICAGO – Not many web series start out as music videos, but the new online (YouTube) drama “Deadbeat 2” was just that. Created, written and directed by Danny Froze, the made-in-Chicago story recently premiered episodes five and six in the series, which features actor Kiwaun Stoutmire in the lead role of Ronnie.
