History:

(Avengers United They Stand#3 (fb) - BTS) - The superpowered team the Avengers formed and included Captain America in its roster.

(Avengers United They Stand#3 (fb)) - Longtime foe Baron Zemo recruited and blackmailed Wonder Man to infiltrate the team in a staged battle against the villainous Enchantress and the Executioner. But when the time came, Wonder Man refused to betray the Avengers' trust and friendship during a battle with Zemo and A.I.M. Captain America and Iron Man carried the ionically poisoned Wonder Man from the battlefield; once healed , he was welcomed back as a true Avenger.

(Avengers United They Stand#3 (fb) - BTS) - The original line-up of Avengers changed; chairman Captain America selected a new team comprising Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Hawkeye. Over the years, the Avengers roster continued to update and Captain America left to pursue solo missions.

(Avengers United They Stand#6 (fb) - BTS) - The flying vigilante Falcon and aid Redwing adventured with Captain America before Falcon joined the Avengers.

(Avengers United They Stand#6) - Captain America put on a demonstration of his skills by destroying Stark-built LMDs for the U.S. President and physicist Dr. Richard Hawkins before a crowd. But small teleportation orbs suddenly appeared and kidnapped Captain America and Hawkins, as well as over a thousand other humans internationally (including other Avengers), guided by the obsessive extraterrestrial Collector and transported to his spaceship into individual cells. In his giant flesh form, the Collector informed them he was saving them from an impending extinction event. Disease-cleansing gas knocked them out before they were released (without weapons) into a jungle zone. Captain America stopped panicked civilians turning against each other. The Avengers split into two teams; Captain America, Falcon, Hawkeye and Black Panther explored a nearby citadel but were captured by intelligent ape-like "Neanderthals."

(Avengers United They Stand#7) - The heroes (plus the accompanying civilians) were taken before Wise Eye and the "Neanderthal" council, but escaped and soon met up with the other Avengers. Aided by Moon Boy and Devil Dinosaur, they broke through the doors back into the cell-lined corridor and regained their weapons, but were soon confronted by the Collector. With the Avengers determined to be free, Scarlet Witch and Vision combined their hex and solar blast powers, unexpectedly disintegrating the Collector's flesh form, but he generated a new body from the ship's floor. Concerned at their destructive nature, the Collector offered the captive humans the choice to return to Earth; only a few chose to accompany the Avengers home in a separate spaceship. Captain America encouraged Black Panther to rejoin the Avengers.

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.
