Steve Rogers was born in Brooklyn to poverty-stricken parents during the Great Depression. They worked themselves literaly to death so Steve could attend art college. The newsreels of WWII inspired him to lie about his age and enlist, but he was deemed unfit due to his frail health. Steve's persistence resulted him being selected for Operation: Rebirth. Injected with Abraham Erksine's Super-Soldier Serum and exposed to 'vita-rays', Steve became a perfect human specimen. In March of 1941 after rigorous training he was given the uniform and codename of Captain America as a direct counterpart to the Nazi agent Red Skull.

For four thrilling years, Captain America and his young ally Bucky fought the Axis menace, including their advanced technology and supernatural creations. Although Captain America fought alongside the Justice Society of America and the All-Star Squadron at times, he spent most of the war with the Invaders in Europe due to being unaffected by the Spear of Destiny.

In 1945, Captain America and Bucky were apparently killed stopping an experimental explosive drone airplane. The Super-Soldier Serum kept Steve alive in suspended animation under the icy waters of the North Atlantic until he was found and revived in the 1990s by SHIELD. In the intervening time, the Unites States kept this a secret, having other individuals assume the role of Captain America.

Needing to acclimate to the modern world, and seeing the effects of Spectre's judgement, Steve put aside his costume and instead operated as a SHIELD agent, alternately being called 'Captain Rogers', 'Commander Rogers' or 'Super-Soldier'. When the World Trade Center was attacked on 9/11, Steve decided he could no longer deny his responsibility and began appearing as Captain America in public again to raise national morale. Now with the second Age of Heroes gaining momentum, 'Cap' is again a symbol of freedom and equality.

Steve's ultimate goal, although he would rarely admit it to even himself, is to see the day where the world does not need Captain America - the day that all men agree that they are truly created equal, the day no one group enjoys their rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness at the expense of another's. This is the day he hangs up the cowl and shield for good. Until then in between conflicts, he seeks what peace and comfort and camaraderie he can carve out for himself like anyone else seeking the American Dream in a world of marvels.

Steve's actions both as Captain America and in civilian life are driven by the desire to do what is right, fair, and just. Even if he didn't see it as his responsibility to be a role-model, he idealism convinces him that humankind can and should rise to their fullest potential even if they don't have access to super-serums, metagenes, or alien technology. He consciously tries to help people be their best one act, one person at a time or at the very least, not enable them to take the low road.
