Who should be Captain America? Before you start yelling at me that it has to be Steve Rogers or mention the fact that we know he will be back in costume in July's new Captain America #1, let's discuss this. I want to be clear, in my eyes, Steve Rogers is Captain America. There have been others that have successfully taken up the mantle. When he 'died,' Bucky was the logical choice to become the new Cap. Since Bucky's return, he has been made into a great character, but we've barely seen him in the role of Captain America. Just when he was finally getting used to it, it was all taken away.  
During the Trial of Captain America, I started thinking this same question that was asked in Captain America #616, must there be a Captain America? If you read Captain America #615.1, you know that there's a certain someone that strongly believes one is needed. Now with Bucky currently locked away in a Russian gulag, the time seems perfect for Steve to return to being Captain America.

The only problem is, Steve never wanted to be Captain America in the first place.
  == TEASER ==
Does Steve Rogers have to be Captain America if it's not what he wants? He never wanted to take on the role. He just wanted to serve his country. Yes he volunteered to be part of the Super Soldier project but he was meant to be one of many soldiers. He never expected to be a symbol for the entire country. He has the burden of being that symbol. He wants to make the world a better place but doesn't feel the need to be in the spotlight. 

Do we just say, "Too bad, Steve"? How long does he have to serve his country? We can assume that Bucky will get out of the Russian gulag but can he go back to being Captain America? He's been cleared of charges in the United States but would the public still accept him as their symbol, knowing what he was forced to do as the assassin, the Winter Soldier?
I know I don't want someone else to take on the mantle of Captain America. When we saw someone new in issue #615.1, it didn't feel right. But that brought up another idea, could we have more than one Captain America at the same time? You can have more than one captain in the U.S. Army so why not more than one Captain America? I'm not trying to make this sound like Batman, Inc but why should the burden fall on one man? Why should it fall on one man that has already served for so long and sacrificed so much since first putting on the costume? Could we have Steve and Bucky both dressed as Captain America, as seen back in Captain America: Siege? We're going to (sort of) see the Captain America Corps in June, why not make this idea a permanent thing?

Captain America is a symbol for the people. When Steve had a conversation about his future with an old friend, he's told that now more than ever, people need a Captain America. And with Fear Itself about to wreck havoc across the Marvel Universe, that will become even more so.

It doesn't help Steve that he's just so good at being Captain America. Is it really all in the Super Soldier Serum that made him such an incredible hero and leader or is there just something inside him? There are so many other superheroes that could try to fill the boots of Captain America but it wouldn't seem right. It might be that Steve is stuck being Captain America until his final days.

I want to mention again that I do want Steve to return as Captain America. I knew the day would come the moment I read The Death of Captain America. He's been doing a lot since his return from behind the scenes. It's just he seems to best at being Captain America. Should Steve be stuck in a role he never wanted?

Steve is fine the way he is.  I would say that USAgent should be the new Cap, but with him missing limbs and refusing to get cybernetics, that's not going to happen.  


So, the best bet is to get someone else to be Cap.

HA!!!!

I don't think there needs to be a Cap any longer, the concept is antiquated and I'm fine with neither Steve or Bucky wearing the uniform again. But we all know that's not the issue, what matters is that MARVEL NEEDS A CAP and the money he brings in...

The question above has two parts:

1- Does the world still need Cap?
My answer is yes, as outdated and sometimes rhetoric as it might sound Cap is a positive figure in a world that grows darker and darker. As outdated as his morals can be Cap is still an idealist that strives to better things by being an example, not just by beating the bad guys.

2- Must Steve Rogers be Cap?
This is the tricky part, tons  of people tried to be Cap after Steve's disappearence in WW2 with very mixed results. The Patriot was good, the rest of them not so much. This should clearly show that it wasn't a matter of Serum or other things, what makes Steve so good at being Cap is his belief, his selflessness and his ability to inspire other to strive for something greater than themselves.

Speaking as a military man, every unit has a symbol that represents what it is and what it represents.  It becomes a focus of identity and what it means to the unit the moment a member joins it.  Even our flag is a symbol of who we are, and all who have put on a military uniform knows that it's part of you for the rest of your life.  Sometimes it defines your very identity.  To Steve, this is the crux of what has become his very essence.  Not just being a man out of time...  but a man whose mission, like Superman's is truly a "Neverending Battle". 

 

In my heart, I'm very loyal and patriotic to my country, but the military was not what I wanted to do when I grew up.  It was being an artist.  I draw, paint and come up with interesting stories, much like Steve does in his civilian identity, so I can identify with his dilemma.  When I enlisted, I knew what it was to be part of something bigger than yourself.  Over time, I know I've made a good call.  I would not have gone through all the trials and tribulations that led me to be the man I am now.  Being a husband and father is the best job I've ever had.  But I still have the uniform to wear.  I know that it's very hard to take off the uniform, and be a husband and father every day when I come home from work.  I can only imagine how it would feel for Steve Rogers.

 

Steve Rogers put on the uniform to be a symbol for all soldiers to rally around.  In essence, if he had not revealed his true identity, then it may not have been as hard a decision that it will eventually be.  He permanently linked Steve Rogers to the identity of Captain America. 

 

We all know that there have been a half dozen me who have worn the uniform, but all of them, in their minds and hearts have felt that they could not fill Steve's shoes...  why?  It wasn't because of the super-soldier serum, since none of them had it, so it became a moot point.  None of them mentioned it.  They only thought themselves as less than Steve because of his leadership and "he would have found a better way."

 

All of them, with the exception of the 50s Cap that went bonkers, were patriots.  They believed in America and the Dream. 

Steve Rogers has been, with the exception of Uncle Sam, the most recognized symbol of the American People.  It became his calling the moment he volunteered.  He set the bar for all who followed, and that's the standard that the American People expect.  To do any less would be a disservice.  The world has never been the same since. 

 

That's my two cents...

Cool writeup man!   He's definitely one of Marvel's larger-then-life characters in that his character and decisions are seemingly flawless.   He truly is Marvel's equivalent to Superman except he doesn't need all those crazy powers, just a shield and his conviction.   Consequently there will always need to be a Captain America so that we may ask ourselves how the American Dream fits into today's world (love the 50s Cap and John Walker stories)

#13 Posted by AFArtist1973 (113 posts) - - Show Bio

I have never thought that Bucky was a bad Captain America... far from it.  He just had to deal with all of the expectations that wearing the uniform and Shield that all the others had to.  I think that he's done a great job in the comics. 

 

Steve Rogers has been portrayed in a good light, and except in the beginning of the newest volume of Avengers #1, has been drawn to be a superheroic icon that he is.  Bucky was drawn that way in the Captain America book since his taking on the role.  I'm not knocking John Romita Jr.'s artwork in any way. far from it...  I've marveled (no pun intended) at his artwork for years.  But he just looked small compared to the rest of the Avengers in that issue.  But that's off on a tangent.

 

Steve Rogers is a very inspiring person, both with and without the uniform of Captain America.  The fact of it is, Steve Rogers is not meant to be in the background.  He's meant to be in the outfit, at least to the rest of the Marvel universe community.  He's that one person that stands by you and tells you that you are doing great and then, all of a sudden... you do better.

 

That's why Steve's going back into the outfit. 

 

my two cents...  --Jim

There needs to be a Captain America many comic heroes and real people who look to Captain America for strength. what he does is true and just, he doesnt do this for money, power, or fame Captain America helps people because it is the right thing to do.

 Captain America has always been a symbol but it's the man behind the identity that reflects the ideals of the character. Steve has always done it the best, even during hard times, he's found a way to prosper. John Walker and James have had their runs and they have really reflected the times and motivations of their versions of Cap. Steve is just the one who handles it the best.

Frankly my personal instinct is to say that Steve should do what he feels is right.  If he doesn't feel he wants to be Cap then maybe it should be an entity that is forever retired considering that anyone else could conceivably be him but it just isn't the same.  But I think at this point with the fan-base he has he just doesn't have a choice now BUT to wield the shield.  It's just like with any other great superhero that is renown to millions...whether that hero bears an S or a shield or is green or wears a cowl.  Sadly its a "Too Bad Steve" point at this stage...otherwise why would we even have Steve be returned to life?

I liked Bucky as cap, should stay as Cap. Or maybe Bucky can become the new US Agent. Would suck if he becomes something lame like Nomad. One good thing is if Steve becomes Cap again, maybe we will get SHEILD back, something I have really been missing in Heroic Age.

@G-Man:  Commander isn't an Army rank. General is though.

Why does Steve Rogers have to be Captain America? I don't think the arguments stand. I liked that he gave the mantle up to Bucky and took on the role Nick Fury: World's Top Cop. It lent to his maturity  into a man who is no longer just a symbol of the American dream, but the ideal of moral and ethical protection of that dream. Cap represents America, Steve represents the protection of the American dream. That to me seems more important than going out on patrol in the streets, especially considering his predecessors in the job were lacking in the moral and ethical fortitude needed to get the job done with a clear conscience.

I realize that I'm going to catch all kinds of flack from the Marvel people here, but I think Cap is kind of Marvel's Batman, there has to be one. Whether or not it's Rogers doesn't matter so much as the fact that Captain America is this symbol and he needs to be there. It's kind of the same thing that happened with Superman after his death, you need someone there to fill the void, to give people hope. Captain America as a symbol is way more powerful than he would be as a soldier.

That said, I don't that that a Captain America Corps or Inc is a great idea. I'm one of the few people that thinks it could work in some really interesting ways for Batman, but I think for Cap, it would cheapen his mythos, not strengthen it.

I was personally hoping Steve would have stayed dead longer, making his return have more impact. I'd prefer Marvel give Bucky more time in the suit, maybe they should pursue the President Steve Rogers angle they were thinking about a few years back. With the elections coming up, the time seems right.

I think Steve should stay in the position he is in and leave Captain America to someone else. He could even hand pick the person

I say that even if he kept himself under the radar he would still be a great Captain America. Instead of being Captain America on a daily basis he could just stay with the top secret and covert ops and still be great.

I've never liked Steve, I've openly talked about how mary sue he can be when it comes to be Captain America and it really annoys me that Buck(who I liked better) was sent up the river just so Steve could be Cap again to appease movie fans who will suddenly jump into comics.

Its alittle annoying but get why it's being done but I just can't get behind Steve Rogers as his decisions are more often than not, borderline retarded at certain times but not all. Anyway I personally think Captain America corps should focus on the other Super Soldiers running around like Patriot & Josiah, yes the Bradley Clan is still alive and well even if their mostly ignored

I thought it was Captain Steve Rogers

 

As for Steve being Cap, the main problem I have with that statement is it makes no-sense. If he didn't want to be Cap, why take up the mantle in the first place? What about all the times he was fired? He was upset that he wasn't Cap.

 

I think while Steve didn't want to be Cap in the first place, he actually enjoys the role now. If not he could become the Captain again. Also the world needs a Captain America, Cap inspires us with hope and the ability to do good.

#34 Posted by Donovan Montgomery (5429 posts) - - Show Bio

Ideally Steve should be Cap, but he doesn't have to be.  Cap is a generational hero, means as long as there is someone worthy, they could wear the costume.


To me (maybe cause I missed them bringing Bucky back), Bucky was not the obvious choice to take over the role because as far as i was concerned he was dead.

I honestly don't know who right now could take over the role, but the first names that poped into my head were Clint Barton (no where near good enough) and Mocking Bird (American Dream showed that a female works in the role).  The only real qualifications needed are they should be American, a great leader, and physically "perfect".

Just my quick off the top off the head ideas.
#35 Posted by Aronmorales (9434 posts) - - Show Bio

I really don't know what to say here, I mean Captain America is my favorite hero, and Steve is my favorite Cap, to find out that he never really wanted to be Cap? Kinda weird...

But then again no man should be forced to do something he doesn't want to do, no matter how good he is at that job, but at the same time the job of Captain America is something I think the world needs; someone who'll stand up for traditional American virtues and ideals whether in the face of adversity or peace.

So with that said, I think that Steve shouldn't have to be Captain America if he doesn't want to, but there should be a Captain America.

#36 Posted by nomadicxnightmare (142 posts) - - Show Bio

Does the world still need Cap? Absolutely. Captain is a relic of another age with idealistic views which, some could argue, are seemingly outdated. However that is why he is such a strong heroic symbol and all-around fantastic character! Marvel's universe is overpopulated with gritty anti-heroes where, in some cases, they are just slightly more "heroic" then the "bad guys" they take down. Cap is different. He truly is a good person (despite how the Ultimate universe version smears him IMO) and he honestly tries to do the right thing, all while kicking ass and taking names. He is an idealist, it's true, but that is part of what defines him as an iconic character. I would compare him to Superman; though he is deemed a "boy scout" he is widely respected and his sense of honor and moral fiber makes him the very definition of what a hero should be. He represents hope and courage; a superhero that not only can be admired by the citizens her protects but also presents a code or model which others can aspire to. Now, for a moment, take that away. Take away Cap from the picture. Who do you have left who can fill that role in Marvel's universe? No one. That is why Cap is so important; he is the last of a dying breed of superhero. It is his idealism which separates him from the rest and propels him to "symbol" status.

 

Now does Steve need to be Captain to pull it off? Nope. Steve is Captain to most and carries that same idealistic moral compass with him even after passing the torch to Bucky. However, that doesn't mean Steve is the only one suitable for the job. Bucky was becoming a great Cap! He had finally found his place and was on a path to not only find redemption for his past, but also truly become that symbol which is Captain . However Marvel decided to foul up years of character development by tossing Bucky in a Russian gulag and giving Steve back the shield. Why? Because Marvel has no balls. This happens all the time whenever a worthy successor character comes along for one of Marvel's cash cows; the successor is either killed off or gets pulled from the lime-light and pushed into secondary character backseat limbo. One of my biggest pet peeves with Marvel (maybe even more so with DC!) is rather then letting characters naturally fade/die/retire within the pages of their books and letting the next generation step forward to fill the void they play this game with us. We all know the game: "Let's kill off/pull X and replace him/her with Y for a year or two and then bring them back and pretend like nothing ever happened! The readers will never suspect that! Brilliant!" So what we end up with is plethora of "copy" characters which fade into the background and are stuck with the "classic" characters that continue to stagnate due to little character growth. Take Wolverine for example: Both Daken and X-23 are basically Wolverine copies (X-23 rather literally) and either could easily fill the role Wolverine represents. Why not put Wolverine into more of a "mentor" role, maybe still let him lead the X-Force team, and slowly allow someone like X-23 to take center stage and develop into the next great iconic claw-popping berserker? That would be fantastic IMHO.... but it'll never happen. Marvel makes too much money off to ever dream about retiring him, and them same unfortunate truth applies to Cap. Bucky had all the makings of greatness in him, but Marvel isn't about to take the risk of permanently changing the man under the mask. Bucky was a fresh start for Cap and opened up so much character development potential, but in the end to Marvel it's not about good stories and characters... but rather it's all about the money. Grow a pair Marvel!

 

*Ahem* Now that I'm done soap boxing, No I don't think Steve needs to be Cap to make the symbol that is Captain work.

Unfortunately for Steve he is the only one perfect as Captain America. Sure Bucky makes for a great and compelling character but just like with Dick Grayson as Batman, I associate Steve Rogers as being Captain America in the same way I associate Bruce Wayne as Batman. And don't get me started on Spider-Man and Superman! Anyway Steve serves as a symbol of hope and democracy in America and is serving his country in a far better way as being the one and only Captain America rather than as part of a group of super soldiers. I think Marvel will make him realise that. Well they have to he's going back to the stars and stripes in July

I think Cap should take a break. With that said, Marvel wouldn't approve since they love promoting their big 3: Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor.


Here's the thing, I've always thought the big 3 should have been Spider-man, Iron Man, and Thor. Captain America is the guy who is supposed to represent justice and fighting for the love of the people, right? Well is that not Spider-Man as well?

Of course, right now we're pretty much over saturated with Spidey (I love Spider-Man), what with him being in five books, two of which are his own (and one of those is in the Ultimate Universe).

But back on track, I don't think there needs to be a Captain America but there needs to be a Big Three. The only problem is, Captain America fills the needs of the Big Three all too well. He's the old leader type, the guy you go to get results, and the guy that will listen to those around him (unless it's Ultimate Captain America we're talking about). Cap represents the little guy in all this, so if he were to go away there would need to be replacement for him. My personal top picks would be Spider-Man and Black Panther. In fact, I would love to see BP as one of the Big Three. Black Panther was the first, great African American (made, since he's Wakandan and all) superhero. That should stand for something. 

I think Marvel should give Black Panther his time in the spotlight. He's in Hell's Kitchen right now doing the Dare Devil thing, it's prime time to pick him up. And who better to show a different take on the same principals Captain America represents?

Steve IS Captain America just like Bruce IS Batman, but that doesn't mean they have to always be that role. Steve should continue doing want he is doing and have one of the Bradley's take up the role for a while, then if things are going well with one of them in the role when Bucky's back out then he can take over as another ranking or even Iron Patriot.

I like to think the reason why X-23 is becoming so popular is because she is not only different from Logan, but also because she is an unique character, unlike most clone/copy characters.

I've made my thoughts on this known before. I'll repost here. 


This is such BS. I knew they were going to do this as soon as it was announced that Steve was coming back, something that in and of itself also pissed me off.  
 
Bringing Steve back negated everything that he died for, it completely takes away from his death and from the meaning of it.  
 
Bucky was doing great as Captain America, he had grown into the role and gave it a fresh spin. He may not be the iconic true blue hero that Steve was, but he was a hero in his own  right.  
 
Steve had his position, Bucky had his. It was a fine system and a nice new twist for both characters. It was a good idea.  
 
This is a freaking horrible one. I hate it as much as I hated them bringing Steve back.

 When it comes down to it, I'm more of a fan of Steve Rogers than the Captain America mantle.....but not by much.
For me, it's about Steves personality. Sure his character might be too "vanilla" or clean (by comparison at least) for modern folk but I wouldn't find him as appealing if he wasn't.

Good point G-man. Multiple Captain America's would make everything a whole lot easier for him, however Steve would always be the best since no one can seem to replicate the super soldier serum and attempts always result in disastrous failure. They would at least have to be experienced experts in fighting and be in top shape.
