Abraham Wilson was a soldier who was a part of Special Forces during World War II, and was charged to watch over Captain America. Abraham would carry out this duty by posing as a cook at the camp where Captain America was stationed. The full nature of Abraham's duty and his full activities during the war remain unrevealed. [1]

Following a disagreement with President Truman over using the atomic bomb on Japan, Captain America was deactivated and mentally conditioned to live a civilian life, unaware of his existence to Captain America. Stevens' shield remained in Washington, but was taken from the capital and exchanged hands for many years. Learning of the shield's disappearance, Abraham abandoned his family to go searching for it. Abraham eventually found it in an East Berlin castle, and stole it hoping to track down Captain America and return it to him. [1]

Unknown to Abraham, Captain America's old foes the Red Skull and Master Man also sought out the shield for their own uses. When Abraham finally tracked down Captain America he found Steven Rogers living an assumed life of a construction worker. Abraham confronted Steven and convinced him of his story, and handed the coveted shield over to Steven. [2]

Having learned of Abraham's contact with Steven, Master Man sent his minions to kill both Steven and Abraham and to recover the shield. During the battle, Abraham was gunned down by Master Man's men, and his body was buried in Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. However, his death was not in vain as he had succeeded in reactivating Captain America, who with the help of Abraham's son Sam, stopped the Red Skull and Master Man from launching a stockpile of nuclear weapons as part of a twisted plot of ethnic cleansing across the United States.
