Powers/Abilities: Captain America's speed, strength (lifting up to 800 lbs.), stamina, agility, reaction time, physical efficiency and reaction time have been magnified to peak human levels. He has been trained in multiple forms of hand-to-hand combat and adapted them to his gymnastic capabilities. The Super-Soldier serum in his bloodstream keeps him in top physical form, although he maintains a strict exercise regime. He is an excellent strategist and charismatic leader, and is fluent in multiple languages. Further to this is his indomitable courage, tenacity, patriotism and sheer personal presence, commanding respect from almost all he encounters. Captain American wields a disc-like shield that absorbs impact and serves as defense, as well as weapon by being hurled as a rebounding projectile; this can be slung onto his back when not in use.
Weight: 240 lbs.

- Augmented by super soldier serum, Captain America was a soldier in
World War II, serving with Sgt. Macginty in battle. He formed part of
propaganda campaign, including the subject of popular comic books.
(Iron Man and Power
Pack#3 (fb) - BTS) - Captain America fought alongside teen sidekick
Bucky during wartime (Bucky's fate is unrevealed).
(The Avengers and Power Pack Assemble!#1 (fb) - BTS)
later, he became a stalwart member of the Avengers and continued to be
admired and idolized by many.
(The Avengers and Power Pack Assemble!#3 (fb) - BTS) - When Spider-Man joined the Avengers, Captain America made him learn about the Avengers' various foes.
(The Avengers and Power Pack Assemble!#1) - Alerted
by Iron Man, Captain America monitored a Stark Enterprises location.
Suspicious of a wayward janitor, Captain America confronted him and was
revealed to be the sinister mercenary Taskmaster, who could mimic the
fighting style of anyone he saw. Taskmaster was able to grab Cap's
shield, but the junior Power Pack superhero team (Energizer,
Lightspeed, Mass Master, Zero-G) intervened.
Underestimating the children's powers, Captain America asked them to
withdraw to safety as minors, but their aid helped stop Taskmaster.
However, the crafty mercenary still escaped. Cap thanked and apologized
to Power Pack, then stayed to chat with his friends.
(The Avengers and Power Pack Assemble!#3) - In New York City, a small team of Avengers (Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Woman, Wolverine) joined Spider-Man and and Power Pack fighting advanced armored troops sent by Kang from 10 years in the future (Earth-68326). Kang froze the adult heroes in chronal disruption fields before casually casting Power Pack back to his own time.
(The Avengers and Power Pack Assemble!#4) - Timing it
just seconds later, Power Pack returned from the future armed with the
technology to take down Kang, hurling him into the timestream.
This freed the Avengers and disabled the armored troops. Captain
America affirmed the importance of a victory and that sometimes life
needed to be faced one battle at a time.
(Iron Man and Power Pack#3) - Tony Stark helped set
up a superhero exhibition at the New York Museum that included a
WWII-era Captain America display. When Puppet Master secretly
manipulated the Iron Man armors on display, Zero-G used his powers on
the old shield from the display to behead a suit of armor.
(Iron Man and Power Pack#3-4) - Puppet Master had crafted many miniature versions of super-powered individuals, including Captain America, intending to use them some day to control the real-life versions for his own nefarious ends.
Comments: Adapted by Marc Sumerak, Chifuyu Sasaki, Gurihiru.
Stats are taken from his Earth-616 counterpart, who first appeared in Captain America Comics I#1 (March, 1941) by Jack Kirby & Joe Simon.
Presumably the basics of his origins and relatives parallel those of his Earth-616 counterpart.
Oddly, Captain America is missing from the mass-brawl of Avengers & X-Men
& others vs. Hulk shown in Hulk and Power Pack (see the Wolverine-5631 profile for info).
The Power Pack "All-Ages" comics' word balloons are
"Sentence case" (not all CAPITAL CASE like most superhero comics), so
"Macginty" (i.e., lower case "g") is definitely the correct format.
Earth-5631 would most likely have been destroyed in the lead up to the multiversal collapse shown in Secret Wars (2015), but has hopefully since been rebirthed.
And in a bizarre coincidence, an Irish-born
professional rugby player called AJ MacGinty played for the UK-based
Sale Rugby Team, whose coach nicknamed him "Captain America" (from a
2021 interview), likely because MacGinty also plays internationally for
the USA. While Steve Rogers has Irish heritage, there's absolutely no
evidence to suggest this is anything but coincidence.
Profile by Grendel Prime.
Captain America of Reality-5631 has no known connections to:
Macginty was a sergeant in the US Army during World
War II and fought alongside Captain America. In the modern era, he
retired into the communal Armed Forces Retirement Community with other
US war veterans. Macginty proudly kept a signed photo of himself with
Captain America dated 1943, and the two kept in touch with Rogers
visiting his wartime buddy. Alex Power (secretly Zero-G of the junior
Power Pack superhero team) volunteered at the retirement home. When a
fight broke out between the nefarious Taskmaster and Captain America
near the veterans home, Power Pack helped overcome the foe. Taskmaster
fell at the feet of several veterans, angry that he was fighting their
ally Captain America, and they battered him, but Taskmaster escaped
them on a personal flying speeder.
