“The price of freedom is high. It always has been. And it's a price I'm willing to pay. And if I'm the only one, then so be it. But I'm willing to bet I'm not”

Films

Avengers - Steve Rogers Skinny (Captain America The First Avenger)

Steve Rogers before Project: Rebirth

Steve Rogers was born a sickly and frail child, and would often be subject to attacks from bullies. His father died during combat in the First World War, and his mother succumbed to tuberculosis, forcing Steve into an orphanage. Despite his weak form, his resiliency to the bullies that fought him impressed Bucky Barnes, and the latter came to his aid to fight them off. The two quickly became friends.

Avengers - Steve Rogers (Captain America The First Avenger)

Steve Rogers after the Super-Soldier Serum

After realizing his aptitude for art, Steve and Bucky enrolled in an art class. Years later, it was there that they found out the U.S. had joined the Second World War, and Bucky began training Steve in boxing, with Steve's desire to be recruited in mind. Despite his best efforts, Steve was rejected due to his many ailments and significantly small frame. Having overheard Steve and Bucky's conversation, scientist Abraham Erskine admired his spirit and signed him up as a candidate for Project: Rebirth.

Steve was submitted to military training, and after having thrown himself over a dud grenade (which he believed was live), he was selected due to having shown bravery and camaraderie towards enemies. Steve was successfully injected with the Super-Soldier Serum (SSS), and thus had most every function of his body enhanced to the absolute peak of human capability.

Erskine, however, was killed by a HYDRA spy soon after Steve's transformation, and Steve was refused entry into the army. Instead, he began performing for the USO, touring the country as the costumed Captain America.

After singlehandedly rescuing hundreds of prisoners of war from a HYDRA weapons facility, Steve was given command of a specialized unit called the Howling Commandos and sent to destroy HYDRA facilities all over Europe. On his final mission, Steve crashed a HYDRA plane full of bombs into the Arctic, sacrificing his own life to prevent HYDRA from devastating the world.

Due to the serum, Steve did not die, and instead went into a state of cryostasis. He remained there for seventy years, until scientists exploring the Arctic discovered the plane and his body within. He was thawed from the ice and sent into the world. He joined the Avengers and fought alongside his teammates for several years.

The Avengers split apart over the Sokovia Accords, and after a battle with Tony Stark, Steve gave up being Captain America and was forced to go on the run from the United Nations.

Canon

Peggy Carter

Main article: Steggy

Peggy Carter is the only woman who is seen developing strong feelings for Steve before he was enhanced with the Super Serum. She and Steve bonded over Steve's good heart, bravery and morals, as Steve was unassuming, kind and a gentleman unlike any Peggy had previously encountered, who did not shy away from her shining light as a strong woman.

Sharon Carter

Main article: Agent America

Steve meets his neighbour, Kate, who he knows is interested in dating him, soon after waking up in 2013 when Steve moves into an apartment. In reality, she's a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Agent 13, posted to keep an eye on and help out Steve. They do develop feelings for one another, but Steve learns that she is the great-niece of Peggy, which makes it difficult for him to deal with what he's feeling for Sharon (her real name). They finally admit their feelings in 2016, when she helps him and Team Cap dodge the authorities and they share their first kiss. It's unknown whether they've seen each other in the 2 years after Team Cap went underground.
