Captain Steven Rogers was a soldier in the American Revolutionary War who acted as the costumed Captain America of his era. He fought alongside Wallace Worthington and Ulysses Bloodstone. While set to meet with Wallace, he found their house ablaze. He rescued a dying Wallace and his wife Elizabeth, learning the Hellfire Club was responsible.

When Sir William Taurey (William Taurey's ancestor) tried to warn the British army of George Washington's approach, Rogers dueled and killed him.[1] Rogers was killed in 1783, in one of the last battles of the Revolutionary War, when he was struck by a cannonball.[2]

Modern Recounting

In modern times, his descendant Steven Rogers, Captain America, dreamed about him while preparing to stop William Taurey's plot to use the Madbomb to destroy the US. Rogers' partner Sam Wilson reacted somewhat negatively to Rogers' open praise of his ancestor, saying that the Revolutionary Rogers probably owned slaves as did George Washington. Steve responded that there was no historical record of Revolutionary Rogers owning slaves, despite many people of that time doing such. Wilson seemed unconvinced.[1]

Regular iron shield


  • Despite being called "Captain America" by some, the Revolutionary War era Captain Steven Rogers is not recognized as an officially-established Captain America. The position was created by the modern US government through the department of the US Army in World War II, while Captain Rogers acted even before the USA even existed as an independent established country.
  • Rogers I's own history is conflicted in later stories with both his own mother and father both being direct Irish immigrants versus Revolutionary Rogers being an established Revolutionary War hero whose family remains in the USA. It is not explained in-story yet as how both can be factual, even in the suggested case of one of Rogers I's later direct name ancestors leaving the USA to live for some generations in Ireland being returning to the USA with Captain America's own parents and the reason why such staunch USA supporters would abandon the USA for Ireland.
