Hero Overview

Captain America, aka Steve Rogers, is the main character of the Ultimate Universe comic books of Marvel. He is a lot different from his mainstream counterpart.


Unlike the Earth-616 version, Ultimate Cap is often seen using firearms and is completely willing to kill his opponents. Furthermore, he possesses more of a "All-American" attitude and does not even have careful thoughts about the way he and his government tell him to do. He also possesses an anti-French sentiment, presumably because during World War II the people of that era, including Rogers, saw the French as being weak and utter defeatists after Nazi Germany quickly conquered France. Furthermore, Captain America's anti-French sentiment was uttered in his infamous liner: "Surrender? You think this letter on my head stands for France?" when fighting against Herr Kleiser. This is opposite of his Earth 616 counterpart, who had respect for the French.



Super Soldier Serum: Steve was given the Super-soldier Serum, then combine with months of surgery and steroid injection, which grants him superhuman levels of physical capabilities, he possesses this following power:

  • Superhuman Strength: Rogers's physical strength is enhanced to superhuman level. He is strong enough to lift at least 10 tons, but no more than 25 tons, though this could increase while he is under stresses. Nick Fury states that Steve can "bench-press a Toyota," he has been able to perform such feats as catching a pine tree capable of crushing jeeps from falling on a group of soldiers, curling multiple tons effortlessly, physically bend metal with his bare hands. He has demonstrated that he is strong enough to easily knock out people with normal durability with as little as a tap to the head. He has also consistently shown the strength necessary to hurt beings who are comparable, if not superior to Hulk in durability such as Juggernaut, Hulk himself, and even K.O some of them (Ex : Giant Man, War Machine, Juggernaut, Captain Britain S.H.I.E.L.D agents, etc) with considerable effort.
  • Enhanced Speed: Captain America can run and swim at a speed beyond the natural limits of the finest human athlete.
  • Superhuman Durability: Captain America's bones and muscles are far denser and harder than normal. He can withstand lethal impacts such as falling from several stories, and sky diving into the water from a height of 600 feet. Captain America's body is durable to the point when he was being punched by a corrupt soldier in the torso, it resulted in his wrists breaking thanks to his super-dense muscles. He can withstand explosions such as the Jet Wash of a Ballistic Missile, grenades that blow in his face, gets hit by the shock wave of a Atomic Bomb, and then crashes into the icy sea and still lives through to tell the tale. He has also been slammed by War Machine through a city bridge as well as tanked beatings from Captain Britain suit SHIELD agents, a ramming Iron Man Suit that craters the earth even with tons of tranquillizers in his body with minimum damages done to his body. He is also durable enough to take hits from powerful enemies with superhuman strength without any notable damages.
  • Superhuman Agility: Captain America's agility, balance, flexibility, dexterity, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural limits of finest human athletes. He has the combined agility and acrobatic prowess of the most accomplished circus aerialists and acrobats.
  • Enhanced Stamina: Captain America's body eliminates the excessive build-up of fatigue-producing poisons in his muscles and his musculature generates considerably less fatigue toxins than the muscles of an ordinary human being, granting him phenomenal endurance. He can physically exert himself at peak capacity for several hours before fatigue toxins begins to impair him. His lung capacity is at peak human level enabling him to hold his breath under water for 3 minutes, making his lungs as healthy as a normal human's lungs can get. Carol Danvers also remarked about Captain America's stamina, stating "Cap only needs an hour or two's sleep every week".
  • Superhuman Reflexes: Captain America's reflexes are at superhuman level. His reaction speed is 40 mph, which makes it possible for him to dodge arrows, gunfire, and even lasers in short range from multiple gunners at the same time; however, on one occasion, it was seen that during his training, he can get shot by a bullet if there were too many to evade.
  • Enhanced Senses: Roger's senses have also been augmented. He can hear, see, and smell things better than normal humans.
  • Regenerative Healing Factor: Steve is able to heal broken bones and torn muscles "in a day or two", while bullet and knife puncture wounds heal in "a matter of hours". He has even healed from a broken neck, broken limbs and holes through his chest in a week. He has also become naturally immune to deadly poisons and illnesses.
    • Contaminant Immunity: Captain America is immune to all Earthly diseases, infections and disorders, and has never become ill after receiving the Super-Soldier Serum. He's impervious to gas attacks, poisons, and nerve-toxins of any kind and completely resistant to diseases like anthrax, smallpox and HIV. His immune system is so powerful that "a half a pint of tetrodotoxin" shows no ill effects. While imprisoned by Frank Simspon, he held snake venom in his mouth to attack Frank with no apparent effect to his own body.
    • Alcohol Immunity: Captain America is virtually immune to intoxication by consuming alcohol.
    • Suspended Aging: The regeneration of his healthy cells has granted him what seems like an ageless immortality.
  • Enhanced Intelligence: His mental performance has been greatly enhanced, allowing his mind to; process information quickly, giving him an accelerated learning aptitude, a knack for quickly analyzing multiple information streams (e.g., threat assessment) and rapidly respond to changing tactical situations, eidetic memory (meaning that he never forgets anything and has perfect recall), speed read, and deductive/reasoning skills.
  • Enhanced Beauty: Cap possesses a level of grace, physical beauty, sense of style and social poise above that commonly found on earth. This is the level of beauty of a storybook princess or fairy-tale prince charming, but is below the level found in goddesses of love and beauty such as Aphrodite, or heavenly beings like angels and archangels.
  • Flawless Coordination: Cap's physical abilities are heightened to the point where he can perform any physical act without difficulty. He merely needs to imagine himself doing the act in his mind, then he is able to perform it without any problem. This could range from free running, to juggling swords, to doing multiple back-flips.


  • Expert Martial Artist: Captain America has previously mastered several martial arts like marine combat, muay-thai, boxing, judo and jiujitsu, though may not be taught with numerous military instructors as his Earth-616 counterpart. He engages in a daily regimen of rigorous exercises (including aerobics, weight lifting, gymnastics, and simulated combat) to keep himself in peak condition.
  • Body Language Analysis: Cap can intuitively read others' body language, allowing him to anticipate their actions and respond accordingly, often allowing him to predict opponent's attacks.
    • Aim Dodging: Steve can avoid linear attacks such as bullets and lasers by simply quickly positioning himself away from the path of the attack before it is fired. This can allow him to avoid attacks that travel much faster than he does.
    • Attack Prediction: Steve can interpret and predict enemy attacks and react to the incoming attack, brush off or avoid the incoming attacks even from dead angle.
    • Photographic Deduction: Steve has amazing deductive and information processing ability of anything he has seen.
    • Combat Perception: Steve can instantly understand an opponent's method of thinking and fighting and anticipating their moves. Once he understands his enemies strategy, he is able to find their flaws and weakness and take them down with little effort. While some of his methods do not use it as part of his primary fighting style, it is helpful in emergencies against difficult opponents where ordinary methods will not work against them
  • Weapons Proficiency: Similar to his Mainstream counterpart, Ultimate Cap best weapon is his trusty shield, but unlike him , Ultimate Cap enjoys using Frag, Gas, Smoke Grenades, and other types of lethal weapons. He is also adept in the use of Assault Rifles, staffs, bludgeons, and swords . He likely received training with different kinds of weapons during his wartime for undercover infiltration missions in the event of not being able to use his shield.
    • Master Shield Fighter: Captain America's years of training and experience with his unique shield, as well as its physical properties, allows him to accomplish mind-boggling feats with the item. Aside from bashing foes with it and blocking incoming attacks, Cap is able to throw the shield with nearly perfect aim. He is able to hit multiple targets with the same throw by means of ricochet, and can even achieve a boomerang-like return effect with it, allowing him to strike enemies from behind or retrieve the shield without objects to ricochet from.
  • Expert Acrobat: Rogers' years of training have made him an skilled in the field of acrobatics and gymnastics as well as a stunning aerialist.
  • Master Marksman: He could throw most if not all projectile weaponry with great aim and was well versed in the use of firearms his masterful sharpshooter sniper.
  • Advanced Military Operator: Rogers is well-versed in most Armed force disciplines including intelligence gathering, escape arts, assassination, demolition, survival tactics, hunting, swimming, mountaineering, march or drill skills, map making, map reading, decoding cipher and other secret code messages, reading and making wood craft signs and other secret code languages, disguising, interrogation, computers, explosives, communication systems, vehicles and electronic appliances used in armed forces.
  • Master Tactician and Strategist: Captain America is "a tactical genius". He has been widely considered one of the skilled tacticians on the planet both on and off the battlefield. He's capable of formulating sufficient victory plans in "less than a second", and his brilliant tactical sense allows him to just as quickly alter any strategy of plan to fit the needs of the situation, one example of the latter is changing his World War II crew's pre-articulated plan within thirty seconds of drop-time after observing the approaching battlefield's variables, while commenting "the [original] plan had a hole the size of Iowa". These seem to verify Nick Fury's comment that Cap "learns new skills faster than a damn computer".
  • Multilingual: Rogers is fluent in English, and may speak other different languages.
  • Expert Vehicular driver: He is proficient in driving cars, motorcycles, trucks, jets, tankers, helicopters, and motorboats.



Captain America's Uniform: The uniform is both water and fire retardant, it is made of Kevlar, Nomex, light weight titanium, and a chest plate Vibranium. The costume also offers a high level of resistance to electric shocks and force impacts, such as falls from thousands of meters in height. The suit cannot be pierced by normal conventional sharp-edged materials like sharpened wood, glass, iron, copper, or aluminum. The suit also gives resistance to high temperatures. It includes a voice-operated, wireless communicator for the left ear, which has its frequencies blocked, making it highly difficult to trace.

  • Presidential Suit: This suit has similar capabilities to his Ultimates's Suit, and the only difference is the look.


  • Captain America's Shield: Captain America used a tri-angular shield in action during World War II. When he was revived Rogers implemented a shield is made of an unknown metal. The Shield was given to him by S.H.I.E.L.D.. This shield is made out of Ultimate version of Adamantium and was later destroyed by Valkyrie and her Golden Blade. Thor later replaced it with one forged by elves. This shield was also destroyed by Gregory Stark. Since that time, it appears Captain America has used a circular shield.
  • Military Weapons: Cap likes to use Frag, Gas, and Smoke Grenades. He is also adept in the use of Assault Rifles and various other weapons.


Ultimate Marvel Heli-Carrier Alpha
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier: The Ultimate version of S.H.I.E.L.D. had a fleet of airborne aircraft carriers (prior to the assault by the Liberators), one of which was referred to, at one point, as the Helicarrier. They aren't S.H.I.E.L.D. primary HQ, this being the Triskelion. The engines that keep the carriers aloft were designed by Tony Stark and were modular enough to be used in a space shuttle by the Ultimate Fantastic Four. These fleets of Helicarriers are smaller than the Earth-616 Helicarriers and are more conventional aircraft carrier shape, but are far more plentiful.
