Quote:Another online list of Avengers name for anyone to comment on:
Quote:Captain America a.k.a. Nomad, The Captain
Quote:-wasn't it confirmed by Stern/Byrne that it was officially just "STEVE"?
Quote:I think Byrne's retcon of Englehart's retcon only meant:
Quote:1. Steve's middle name isn't Grant. He doesn't have a middle name.
Quote: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)
Quote:3. Steve's father wasn't a diplomat and his parents weren't named Walter and Elizabeth.
Quote:4. Cap didn't grow up in Maryland.
Quote: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.
Ah. Interesting. Thanks.
