Captain America is a superhero but he is also a symbol of patriotism. Captain America is a human who was chosen to participate in a special military operation designed to create a superior soldier. He was injected with Super-Soldier Serum and then exposed to "Vita-Rays" resulting in a transformation that turned him from a frail young man into a muscle bound and elite super human soldier. The military designed a Captain America costume for him and turned him into a hero as well as a PR attraction. In all of Captain America's incarnations, he is always portrayed as the most patriotic superhero, fighting for freedom, justice and preserving the American way of life.
