At the beginning of the movie before he transforms into Captain America, Steve Rogers suffers from polio (poliomyelitis). Polio is an highly infectious viral disease that attacks the central nervous system and is characterized by symptoms that range from a mild non-paralytic infection to total paralysis in a matter of hours.

How stupid do you think we are? My people will find this place in a lot less than 24 hours.
[takes a deep breath in mock surprise]
Oh no... a hidden transmitter.
[rummages for something in his pocket]
Does it look something like eh, this?
[holds it up as the President touches his cheek]
Hm. Painlessly removed from a lower right molar. This one. While you were unconscious.

And so easily deactivated. But don't worry, next time we'll have it made in Japan.

Prior to the video release, a pirated copy of Captain America was available which had three extra scenes not included in the final cut:
There is additional dialogue between Steve Rogers and Bernie at the docks before Steve is sent off on his secret mission.
After Captain America parachutes down into Nazi territory, he lands in the forest and is met by two Ally spies, a male and a female, who proceed to show him the way to the enemy base. They are ambushed by Nazis, who kill the two spies before Cap finishes them all off. Cap then holds the dying female spy in his arms and is reminded of his girlfriend, Bernie, back in the United States.
There is an additional scene which explores the character of the Red Skull more, and it attempts to make him look much more like a tragic figure, haunted by his painful past. In the 1990's, as Steve Rogers is reviewing the deaths of Martin Luther King and John Kennedy and realizing that the Red Skull is to blame, the Red Skull is shown weeping over the piano seen at the end of the film, re-living the visitation of the Italian army storming into his house, shooting his family, and kidnapping him for their experiments. This scene shows that the Red Skull genuinely hates who he has become.
Silly Ploy to Capitalize on Super-Hero Craze of Early-1990s.
A movie that is little more than a quick fix to capitalize on the enormous success that "Batman" had two years before this film's release, "Captain America" is a really silly production that uses some exotic locales to make up for a lack of a suitable screenplay and invisible direction. Matt Salinger is dull in the titled role and he gets no support from "Deliverance" alums Ronny Cox and Ned Beatty who both must have been desperate for work and money when they were approached with this project. The titled character comes to life during World War II but immediately gets frozen and meets up once again with the evil Red Skull in the present-day after nearly 50 years of inactivity. Yawn. 2 stars out of 5.
