Print this article Although many people are familiar with superheros in their ultimate form, some are not aware of how they got there to begin with. "Captain America: The First Avenger," chronicles the formation of one of the world's most famous superheroes. The exciting new release DVD hits shelves October 25.
Stever Rogers (Chris Evans) wants to join the Army and fight in World War II, but he is rejected due to a number of physical and health-related issues. However, Dr. Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci) gives him the chance to join thanks to a new treatment that will turn him into a "super-soldier." The experiment works but Erksine is killed by a German assassin, relegating Rogers to promoting war bonds.
Not one to let his newly acquired skills go to waste, Rogers assembles a team and eventually mounts his own offensive against Nazi officer Johann Schmidt and save his childhood friend Bucky Barnes and others from capture.
