The de facto leader of the team, super-soldier Steve Rogers (played by Chris Evans) starred in his own 2011 film, "Captain America: The First Avenger." That movie took place during World War II, but in The Avengers, Cap (who had been frozen in ice after the war) has been thawed out and reintroduced into modern society. Now Rogers has to figure out how to make the disparate personalities and powers of The Avengers work together.

Appearances in other Marvel films: Cap's trademark shield can be seen in Tony Stark's workshop in both "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2." An alternate scene included in the DVD release of 2008's "The Incredible Hulk" shows Cap still frozen.
