Comments: Created by an uncredited writer and artist.
The Earth-313710 Captain America did not appear in any comic book stories but appeared in various print advertisements and catalogs for Ben Cooper, Inc., the company who produced the real life Halloween costumes featuring many Marvel characters as well as a seemingly endless amount of other licensed characters. Since these printed versions of Marvel characters appeared alongside other licensed characters in the ads and catalogs, one can only assume that they exist in an alternate Earth shared by all of these licensed characters, all wearing cheaply-made and inferior Halloween costumes similar to the Spiderman who appeared in the "Spider-Verse" event.
Many of the licensed characters that appear in the Ben Cooper catalogs had horribly misspelled names or were named after the series they were from, rather than the actual characters (ala referring to Josie from Josie & the Pussycats as "Josie & the Pussycats" rather than simply "Josie"). As such, any characters listed as possible affiliations/enemies in this profile are listed exactly as they are referred to in the catalogs/ads. Also, any characters' names are spelled as they were in the catalogs/ads so they aren't actually misspelled per their printed appearances despite being misspelled from the characters Ben Cooper based the costumes on.
I've included an image of the actual real life Captain America costume (the original with sleeves) (on the right here) by Ben Cooper, Inc. for reference.
Captain America's hair color on Earth-313710 was
impossible to determine, as he was only ever seen with his trademark
cowl covering his hair. Also, when originally depicted, Captain America
was drawn as an adult but later drawings depicted as more of a child. I
figure he is likely somewhere in between, age-wise, perhaps a teenager?
After all, even when depicted as a child, he seemed to be drawn much
more muscular than a typical child would be (see main image).
