It's July 4, and for Marvel fans, that means it's Captain America's birthday. The stoic and virtuous hero who was born in 1918 turns 102 this year. Cap has always been a fan-favorite, due to his values, heart, courage and soul, and is often considered the emblem of patriotism for fans. The character has had innumerable arcs and rewrites since the 1940s, and was brought to the big screen by Chris Evans, who made the character more heroic than ever. We might not see Evans's Cap anymore in the films, as 'Avengers: Endgame' was his last gig as the character. In 'Endgame', Cap lived out the remainder of his life with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), after returning the infinity stones to their respective timelines. He handed over his shield to Falcon (Anthony Mackie), who will be carrying on his legacy in 'The Falcon And The Winter Soldier'.
