    And that awkward moment when you re-read the posted comment and realise theres a random ‘d’ hiding in the surname – Steve Rogers :/

  2. His name is Steven Rogers, not Steven Grant Rogers. In 1978’s Captain America #225, Cap sees Professor Mason Harding for help dealing with amnesia about his first 18 or so years of life. Harding’s machine breaks through the veil over his memories and he recalls a childhood in Maryland as Steven Grant Rogers, son of diplomat Walter Rogers and with an elder brother Michael whose death at Pearl Harbor subsequently inspired Cap to enlist. However, in time Cap comes to doubt these memories because he was active way before Pearl Harbor (he helped found the Invaders within a day or two of that event) and because he’s getting conflicting memory flashes of growing up in New York clashing with the crystal clear, highly detailed memories of his Maryland childhood. So in 1980’s Captain America #247 he visits SHIELD, and Dum Dum Dugan tracks down Steve’s old army footlocker. In it he finds his old journal, and a note that on Christmas Eve 1941 his army superior, aware Steve was due to go overseas with the Invaders and thus risk being captured, summoned Steve. To prevent him spilling vital secrets should he be captured, they plant false memories to confuse any interrogators. They introduce him to diplomat Walter Rogers, who is NOT related to Steve, but whose two sons, Michael and Grant, both died in Pearl Harbor. Steve spends the next couple of days having false memories plugged into him, using the late Grant Rogers’ life as the basis for Steve’s fake one. Dr. Harding’s memory probe triggered the preprogrammed false memories. And here’s Steve’s exact quote from Captain America #247, p17, panel 1

    “My middle name’s not Grant…I never had a middle name!”
