There being over-Patriotic and then there John Walker. Introduced in Captain America #323 (1986) by Mark Gruenwald and Paul Neary, John Walker grew up admiring his older brother, a soldier in the US Army. After his brother’s death, John joined the army serving a number of tours overseas. After his tour, he was approached by Power Broker who gave him enhance abilities and John joined the Universal Class Wrestling Federation, a superpowered wrestling show. He would later become the Super-Patriot and began using his position to discredit Steve Rogers. He gain support by staging attacks on people by using his friends to attack people and he would rescue them. Steve Rogers would later give up the mantle of Captain America and the Commission on Super-Human activities decided to make Walker the new Captain America.

Together with his friend Lemar Hoskins (who was at first Bucky then Battlestar), Walker took a harsher approach to being Captain America. The pressure of the identity began taking it’s toll on Walker and after killing someone in a rage, Walker would fight Steve Rogers. He agreed to give up the identity of Cap to Steve Rogers but was believed assassinated at a press event. Instead however, his death was faked and the Commission made him lose his memory as their agent, US Agent. They would force him on the West Coast Avengers, which caused Hawkeye to quit. He would remain with the team for sometime until they were forced to break up by Vision. Though reluctant at first, he would join the former West Coast members in creating Force Works. After they broke up, he would be put in charge of the Jury and sent to capture the Thunderbolts.

He would later be put in charge of S.T.A.R.S. to hunt down escaped criminals. He would become a major part of the Maximum Security event, convincing alien convict to aid humanity in free Earth from the Kree. He was later brainwashed by Red Skull, posing as Secretary of Defense Dell Rusk, into creating a new Invaders team and took on the name Captain America. He took the side of the government during the Civil War and was sent to Canada to aid Omega Flight in capturing escaped convicts from the US. After a brief stint with the Mighty Avengers, John lost his arm and leg when fighting Nuke in the Siege. He took the role of the Raft’s warden. He would regain his arm and leg after bonding with the Venom Symbiote and would lead the Dark Avengers for a while. He would return to the military and would battle Sam Wilson soon after. During the AI revolution, he would join a new team of Force Works.

Despite his popularity, US Agent has had very few figures over the years. His only official figure was part of Epic Heroes wave from the Return Of Marvel Legends line. However, since they both wore the exact same costume and has the same eye and hair color, you can consider every Classic version of Captain America to be Walker as well.


Captain America

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Walmart Exclusive Marvel Legends 80th Anniversary – Captain America

  • Background:
    • After Steve Rogers gave up the identity of Captain America following a disagreement with the government and becoming just the Captain, the Commission gave the costume and shield to John Walker becoming the US Government’s officially sanctioned Captain America. His friend would become Bucky but changed to Battlestar after he learnt that Bucky was a racist term for black people.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • If you are a fan of US Agent then you will need a figure of him in his Cap suit. However, I would use it for Rogers.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.

U.S.Agent

Recommend Figure:   Hasbro Return of Marvel Legends Epic Heroes wave – U.S.Agent

  • Background:
    • After returning the shield and costume to Steve Rogers, the commission faked Walker’s death. They later rewrote his memory and gave him Steve Roger’s old Captain uniform and called him U.S.Agent. It is unknown how they got the costume. Since this considered his classic costume, like all classic costume it has been drawn differently by different people.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • If you are a US Agent fan, this is a most as it is his most important and recognisable costume. It is also needed for a Captain America, Avengers, Invaders, The Jury and Stars collection. 
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • Yes. The one we got was on the Bucky build thus is too small for Walker, who was generally shown as bulkier then Rogers.
