  • Peggy Carter - Sharon's great-aunt who appears on the first issue and through flashbacks as Steve holds good memories about her and often thinks of her as an old TBD.

Antagonists

  • Hydra, consisting of:
    • Johann Schmidt/Red Skull - the head of Hydra who is still somehow alive thanks to cryogenic genetics and now wants to kill Captain America for real by using brute force to achieve it.
    • Sinthea Schmidt/Sin - Red Skull's granddaughter who has led Hydra sometime before Steve first arrived to modern day and often serves as the one behind a good chunk of Hydra's actions.

    • Brock Rumlow/Crossbones - TBD
    • Eric Williams/Grim Reaper - TBD
    • Marvin Flumm/Mentallo - TBD

  • Yelena Belova/Crimson Widow - another member of the Red Room project who now is TBD.
  • Aleksey Lebedev/Red Guardian - TBD
  • Flag Smasher - TBD

Differences

  • Nick Fury is stylized like his classic Earth-616 counterpart while still African American like Ultimate Marvel in a similar way to The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, most likely done to deviate from the Samuel L. Jackson-inspired design used nowadays.
  • Sharon Carter, for a chunk of the series, was a brainwashed sleeper agent for Hydra until Steve broke her free from her state.
  • Sin is Red Skull's granddaughter instead of his daughter and currently leads Hydra.
  • The Red Guardian is shown to be highly more antagonistic, still believing in communism and finding Captain America as his perfect match.
  • Yelena is referred to as Crimson Widow rather than Black Widow to avoid confusion with Natasha.
  • The Red Room is connected to Hydra.

Issues

  1. WWII - a brief flashback issue following Captain America having his final confrontation with the Red Skull during WWII.
  2. Welcome Back Captain America - Several decades have passed since Nazi Germany was defeated as a S.H.I.E.L.D. group finds out the location of Steve's body, leading to him being revived by them and, as a result, he starts to learn about the TBD.
