Top Five Captain America Girlfriends

Cap is quite the romantic, so here is his list of his top five girlfriends!

Honorable Mention to Rebecca Quan and Connie Ferrari.

5. Peggy Carter

Has Peggy NEVER appeared on a comic cover?


Peggy was a resistance fighter who Cap fell in love with while fighting in Europe.

4. Betsy Ross

Betsy was Cap's Golden Age girlfriend who eventually ended up becoming the superhero Golden Girl.

She became Cap's partner after, oddly enough, Bucky was shot!

Her current continuity is a lot more convoluted.

3. Rachel Leighton

Diamondback was an interesting girlfriend for Steve Rogers, as she challenged his stodgy ways.

I really liked her.

She gets extra credit for being the first time Cap going on a date made a cover!

2. Bernie Rosenthal

Diamondback, though, wasn't as compatible with Cap as much as Bernie was, who really challenged Cap in ways other than "loosening him up."

1. Sharon Carter

If Sharon never returned, she'd give Bernie a rough time.

But the quality (by Waid and Brubaker) since her return has been impressive.

Also, note that there has never been a Bernie Rosenthal comic book!


Agree? Disagree? Let me know!

An older version (modern times) of Peggy Carter was on the cover of Cap #232. Here's the link:

Diamondback was the best...
more sexy than the others... and I like reformed girls...

plus she is the only one who can understand Cap committment to the hero business...

of course Sharon can, but in recent times she is more and more obsessed than Cap...
(and how many times Shield fired her and then hired her again?)

Bernie was always my favorite, and I was kinda ticked off when they wrote her out of the comic (and by the way it was done.)

I like Sharon now, but when she was first reintroduced in... what, the late '90s? I thought they played up the "bad grrrrl" stuff way too much. She seems a lot more balanced now.

Silver Age Sharon was actually pretty neat, and a rare Marvel Silver Age "career girl" who took her job as seriously as Cap did his.

My favorite since ever has been Betsy Ross, because she is nicer, prettier and sexier than the other ones. Also Captain America really love her.
