Captain America aka Steve Rogers is the most self-righteous Marvel Superhero we might ever come across. He is one of the most disciplined heroes. If you think that his love life is not good as it consists of just the Carters, then you are totally wrong. Here is a list of women Captain America got cozy with.
Janet Van Dyne is a pint-sized pin-up whose beauty, brains and bravery make her utterly compelling. In an alternate universe storyline, it was actually Captain America who was the love interest of The Wasp and not the Ant-Man aka Hank Pym. Well, in that storyline, being lovers of each other, they surely did it.
While Peggy Carter was always Cap’s ‘best gal’ in the MCU, people may be surprised to know that Cap had a small relationship with another girl who fought alongside him in World War II, Betsy Ross. Hearing her name people might confuse her with the love interest of The Hulk, Betty Ross, but the two individuals are totally from different timelines.
In the MCU, Cap is one who looks after Wanda Maximoff as a child and a friend. She is usually the love interest of Vision so it may come as a surprise that Cap would have had sexual relationships with Scarlett Witch. Wanda had nursed a crush on Steve ever since the Avengers’ early days and the two have had some near misses over the years culminating in a brief but passionate romance that Steve decided he wanted to end. Imagine the powers their children would have if they took it to the next level.
While Captain America The Winter Soldier teased a romantic relationship between Captain America and Natasha Romanoff, it did not pursue the way one might have expected. But surely there was something brewing between the two. In the 2008 animated movie Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow, a story about a young group of second-generation of Avengers led by James Rogers, the child of Captain America and Black Widow was told. In this story, Cap and Natasha were lovers and had everything that lovers supposed to have. In Marvel comics, there have been several storylines where romantic angle has been explored before these two.
Jane Foster/ Thor
Hearing Jane Foster, we might think that she should be the lover of Thor and not Captain America. But, in a new storyline, She herself becomes Thor and Sam Wilson become Captain America and the two fall in love. The surprised everyone by locking in a passionate embrace and it was called the ‘Earth’s Mightiest Kiss’. This relationship went forward by Sam and Jane getting more and more closer and finally ended up together in bed. It is indeed strange to see these two as a couple but stranger things have happened in the comic world.
We saw the relationship of Steve and Sharon move forward in Civil War but it is doubtful that it will be explored anymore in the Upcoming Avengers Infinity War. But it was fully explored in the comics Steve and Sharon find themselves working together to track down The Winter Soldier. The two are seen kissing and canoodling and we cut to a hotel room where they’re seen sharing a post-coital embrace in bed.
As a result of Peggy’s death, Cap and Sharon got really close and intimate. The death of Peggy left a deep sense of void in Steve Rogers’ heart. The code name of Sharon Carter was Agent 13, and she was working with Joint Terrorism Taskforce in Berlin. She helped shared a critical piece of information with Team Cap which allowed them to catch the culprit behind UN Bombings and get to the bottom of the larger conspiracy.
Hayley Atwell, the actress who played Peggy Carter said that she would never have approved of her niece kissing her ex. She said:
“Well, first of all, she’d be turning over in her grave. She’d be like ‘no.’ And she’d inject herself with the blue serum and become a supervillain. She’d break out of her coffin and ground. She’d ground her. Then she’d kick Steve’s ass as well.” She continued “I just feel that you know – I wouldn’t want to date my great aunt’s guy. It just feels like it crosses an incestuous boundary. And Peggy just died. That’s even more disrespectful, right? It’s like, ‘don’t touch that.”‘ You can’t tap that!”
“She’d want the best for her and she’d want her dating a good guy. And now with this whole ‘Hail Hydra” business, I don’t know if Steve’s good enough for her.” She cited the controversial arc of Marvel comics regarding the Captain America character and exclaimed: “So on all levels, it’s just a big fat no.”
Well, this one is pretty obvious as she was the first love of his life during World War II. While their relationship was not explored very much in the first Captain America movie, but still they came around to share a kiss. In the comics, it did happen and even the actress who played Peggy Carter likes to think that they must have done it for sure. In Captain America: Civil War, Steve Rogers went to the funeral of his wartime love interest when he woke up from the ice after decades.
Peggy Carter landed on a show on ABC after her role was over on the big screen, but it could not last for more than two seasons. Hayley felt bad about the whole thing and had this to say about this abrupt end to the TV series:
“You know Marvel and all the creatives behind the making of the show loved it. And we loved it. We all loved making it. It was a network political thing. They wanted to put me in something mainstream to get their ratings up rather than something that was more genre specific. There were a lot of economic decisions behind it and I wasn’t a part of the conversation. So we were all really surprised about that because we kind of got the sense that people were liking it. It had this cult following. So I know there have been online campaigns for it and the fact that we know that she lives until the age of 96 means that technically I could be employed for the rest of my life, you know.”
The show’s producer Jeph Loeb tried to convince Marvel fans that they never had an intention to cancel the show but circumstances are such that they have to move on. Here is what he said:
“Unlike the movie studio where they can say, in 2019 we’re making Captain Marvel,’ the television division doesn’t have that ability. Hence, we are, at the end of the day, beholden to the network that we’re on. So for all of you Agent Carter fans out there, we didn’t cancel the show.”
She expressed her desire to re-introduce Peggy into the MCU through a solo movie. Here is what she said:
“I’d love to see Peggy more in films. I’d love to see her in her own film. And if we can keep evolving it so that she does new things so that I can surprise myself and she can keep surprising me then I’d love to do it. And I feel very privileged to be part of something that people really love and that entertains them. But also, you’re going to these conventions and meeting people who’ve named their son Carter and people who have a tattoo of ‘I Know My Value,’ the tagline. She’s a force of good and there are a lot of social media sites where girls and guys have come together and become good friends on an international scale because of their belief in some of the values that Peggy talks about. And that provides them with a different connection that a family situation or school situation that they don’t really feel they have a place in. That’s really cool to me. So I’m very happy to be a part of that world and keep that going.”
