Captain America may be one of the most famous superheroes of all time now, but in 2011, when his MCU debut hit the big screen, he was lesser known than the likes of Iron Man or the Hulk who'd both had their first MCU outings. Sure, he'd had a made-for-TV movie already, but that was best left forgotten. The First Avenger was something entirely different and who would have guessed it would give us one of the most beloved movie characters of our time?
Set in World War II - a period the MCU has not returned to since - Captain America: The First Avenger tells the origin story of how a young and skinny Steve Rogers became a super soldier with the confidence and strength to threaten the toughest enemies he'll one day face.
This was where we learned about his underdog spirit, his good heart and his moral compass and it was hard not to immediately fall in love with him. But how much do you remember?
