Jonathan F. "John" Walker is a former marine who was appointed as the new Captain America by the U.S. government. After confronting the Flag Smashers, John acquired Wilfred Nagel's Super Soldier Serum and gained superhuman abilities.

The pressure of holding the mantle took its toll on John and the murder of his friend and partner, Lemar Hoskins pushed him over the edge. John killed Nico, one of the Super Soldier Flag Smashers, in front of a large crowd of people in Riga, and was stripped of the mantle of Captain America and discharged from the military.

After being dismissed, John crafted his own shield imitating Captain America's and helped to stop the Flag Smashers attack on the Global Repatriation Council. He went to work for Valentina Allegra de Fontaine who kitted him out in a new uniform and dubbed him the U.S. Agent.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Super Soldier Physiology: After taking Wilfred Nagel's Super Soldier Serum, John gained several superhuman attributes.
    • Superhuman Strength: John is much stronger than normal humans. He was able to bend a metal pipe with his bare hands and send Dovich flying with a single punch relatively easily.
    • Superhuman Durability: John is far more durable than normal humans. He was able to jump out of a building and land on a van without suffering from any physical injuries; such heights would have injured a normal human.
    • Superhuman Speed: John is much faster than normal humans. He is capable of catching up to or outrunning speeding vehicles relatively easily.
    • Superhuman Reflexes: John's reflexes are much faster than normal humans. He narrowly avoided a knife being thrown at him by Dovich.
    • Superhuman Stamina: John possesses far more stamina than normal humans; allowing him to remain physically active for long periods of time.
    • Accelerated Healing Factor: John's metabolism allows him to heal much faster, more extensively and efficiently than normal humans. After John's arm was broken by Falcon, he was completely healed after a few days.

Abilities

  • Peak of Human Physical Condition: Even before taking the Super Soldier Serum and through extensive training, John was in top physical condition for a man of his age.
  • Expert Hand-To-Hand Combatant: Through his training in the United States Armed Forces, John is a highly skilled hand-to-hand combatant. His combat style is comprised of boxing, firearm improvisation and modern army combat. He was briefly able to go head-on against Karli Morgenthau, despite the latter's superior strength and was able to best several members of the Flag Smashers relatively easily; when he combines his combat skills with the vibranium shield, he was able to take on two members of the Dora Milaje simultaneously, before being overpowered by their superior combat skills. After taking the Super Soldier Serum, John's combat skills are amplified by his superior strength, to the point that he was able to take on both Falcon and Winter Soldier simultaneously, even briefly overpowering them individually, however, once John was disarmed of the shield, both Falcon and Winter Soldier were able to best him relatively easily, proving that John's combat skills are inferior to master level combatants/martial artists; such as Falcon and Winter Soldier.
  • Expert Marksman: Due to John's training in the military, he is a highly skilled marksman. He used his sidearm to shoot Matias who was holding Battlestar.
  • Master Shield Fighter: John is a highly skilled shield fighter. He can ricochet the shield in a way it returns to his grip. He consistently threw it at the Flag Smashers to knock them down, and even threw it with enough accuracy to catch Battlestar on the concave side.

Weaknesses

  • Mental Instability: Although the Super Soldier Serum enhanced John's physical attributes to superhuman levels, it also amplified his emotions, particularly his negative emotions; making John more arrogant, erratic, cruel, unstable and paranoid. He killed Nico in cold blood after he had surrendered, in retaliation for his friend and partner, Lemar Hoskins' death, completely disregarding the fact that it was Karli Morgenthau who actually killed Lemar. After both Falcon and Winter Soldier asked him to hand over Captain America's shield, John violently attacked them to the point that he would kill them both given the chance.

Equipment

Former Equipment

  • Captain America Uniform: After being appointed as the new Captain America by the U.S. government, John wore a protective blue and red suit; similar to the one worn by Steve Rogers. However, after getting stripped of the mantle of "Captain America"; as a result of killing Nico in cold blood in a foreign national, the suit was taken away from him.
  • Captain America's Shield: After being appointed as the new Captain America by the U.S. government, John used the vibranium shield in a manner similar to Steve Rogers; by utilizing it in a primarily defensive manner and throwing it in an offensive manner. However, after killing Nico in cold blood, the shield was forcibly taken away from him by Falcon and Winter Soldier, as John proved himself unworthy of wielding the shield.
