Steven Grant Rogers, better known as Steve Rogers or Captain America, is the leader of the Avengers, a super-soldier from World War II, who was inadvertently placed in suspended animation and revived decades later. He does not have a middle name according to Captain America #247, P17, Panel 1: "My middle name's not Grant...I never had a middle name!".

He was mentioned, both by his real name Steve Rogers, and his super-hero alter-ego Captain America, in the episode Girl in the Flower Dress, and cited again when Mike Peterson wanted to compare his time on the bulldozer push in The Bridge. In leadership and motivation terms he is seen by many in S.H.I.E.L.D. as the benchmark.

Agent Coulson is quite notably a fan of Captain America, and owns a collection of vintage Captain America trading cards, though this may now be incomplete, after Nick Fury's 'motivational act' with regard to the Avengers.

In "Winter Soldier", Cap's ID in the elevator when Fury is bringing him to the secret levels to show him the new helicarriers displays his status as a Level 8 agent.
