Storyline

In 1941, Steve Rogers is the test subject of the top secret Operation: Rebirth. The experiment is a complete success with Steve Rogers' physiognomy suddenly raised to the maximum human potential. Unfortunately, at that triumph, the lead scientist was immediately assassinated by a Nazi spy and the formula was irretrievably lost. The US government, aware that war with Nazi Germany was imminent, decided to make the most of their resource by appointing Rogers as their propaganda symbol/government agent, Captain America. Armed only with an indestructible shield, we follow his adventures in World War II with his sidekick, Bucky. In addition, we follow his further adventures after he reemerges in contemporary times out of suspended animation to face all the threats to America and its ideals.

It would be pointless for me to do a long review of this show because I've already reviewed Marvel Superheroes, and my review of the blanket title will mostly suffice for this show. What makes this one very slightly different is that episodes cover not only Cap's solo series (both "present day" and World War II) but also the Avengers when he was leading Hawkeye, Quicksilver, and Scarlet Witch. Beyond that, the same unintentionally funny animation and sound effects as the rest of the original Marvel Superheroes line.
