How Captain America joined the Tourney
Steve Rogers was a weak young man who lived during World War II and desperately wanted to enlist and fight the Nazis. However, he was deemed unfit to be in combat, until he was brought into a special program called Operation: Rebirth. There, he was the one who tested the Super Soldier Serum, which transformed him from a scrawny and weak young man, to a soldier who was at the peak of physical perfection. However, before the serum's ingredients could be written down, the lead scientist was assassinated by a Nazi spy. Steve, now with the name Captain America, was given a shield and tasked with fighting Talim, a wind priestess. Cap fought for the American dream, serving alongside future heroes such as Ling Xiaoyu and Alisa Bosconovitch. However, while trying to stop a missile, Talim was seemingly killed and Cap was flung into the ocean and frozen until modern times.

The captain then grabs the foe and throws the opponent upward in the air, and after chasing them with a big jump he finishes the move with a piledriving backdrop that causes an explosion. The explosion causes a One-hit knockout.
