I always sort of assumed he became Cap AFTER Pearl Harbor but is that the case? Or were the Americans working on a super soldier program before the USA even entered WWII?


The comic was published before the attack on Pearl Harbor, and I've always interpreted that Rogers took the serum before the attack.

Whilst in reality America wanted to stay out of WWII and only decided to get involved after Pearl Harbor made it apparent that they were not going to be able to isolate themselves from the war, experiments to create a super soldier to fight Nazi's works nicely with the preferred narrative of many that American was dedicated to the fight against fascism from the beginning.
