History

As Captain America

Bob Russo was a star professional baseball player (3rd Baseman). Upon Steve Rogers leaving the role of Captain America,[1] Russo told the media he was retiring from baseball and assuming the role. In his first attempt at foiling a robbery, he misjudged his rooftop swing and careened into a brick wall, injuring his arm.[2]

He cited his lack of practice and the way the former Captain America appeared to make his feats appear so easy as factoring into his failure. Russo apparently abandoned his attempt to replace Steve Rogers after this debut.[3]
