Quote:Captain America a.k.a. Nomad, The Captain
Quote:-wasn't it confirmed by Stern/Byrne that it was officially just "STEVE"?
I think Byrne's retcon of Englehart's retcon only meant:
1. Steve's middle name isn't Grant. He doesn't have a middle name.
2. Steve doesn't have an older brother named Mike that died at Pearl Harbor (supposedly Cap took the Super Soldier Serum BEFORE America entered WW2)
3. Steve's father wasn't a diplomat and his parents weren't named Walter and Elizabeth.
4. Cap didn't grow up in Maryland.
I don't think whether Steve was short for Steven came up. The broad details the government came up for Cap's backstory was based on the family of a man named Walter Rogers from the State Department. He lost his sons Mike and Grant a few weeks earlier at Pearl Harbor. Steve meets Walter before he gets the false memories.
