Sam Wilson remembers very little that happened before his 75th birthday. To him, those years before he gained his powers are nothing more than a distant blur. However, he remembers clearly the events that occurred on July 4, 1937. He was in a hospital bed, taking a long time to die of old age and neglect. As he lay there, semi-conscious, the Spirit of America appeared before him, clutching the Stars and Stripes to her breast.

She told Sam that dark, difficult times were coming for the nation. He had been specially selected to take up the banner and defend the nation from its enemies. He was told that America will be strong again, and that while the current days of the Depression had weakened the American Dream, no human force could ever truly break it.

The Spirit of America faded from his view. Sam Wilson got up from his hospital bed a new man. He was no longer appeared to be a short, balding man bent with the burden of age. Instead, he had transformed into the literal figure of the legendary Uncle Sam. He climbed from his bed and left the hospital to do his duty, for God and his country.


Uncle Sam is perhaps the most rabidly patriotic American alive. His patriotism falls just short of the "America, Love It or Leave It", but not by much. He has little patience with people who badmouth his country, its people, or its government. In addition, he has a suspicion of all foreigners, even those with a long history of alliance with the United States (like the Canadians, English, and French). This suspicion is usually subtle, but apparent if one looks for it.

When it comes to the general public, Uncle Sam is cheerful, helpful, and polite. He never swears; rather, he tends to use outdated euphemisms instead of profanity.


"Now, you kids had better just run along... It’s a school night, you know!"


Uncle Sam is much, much stronger than a normal human being. He is resistant to injury, and heals quickly. His only other powers seem to be an immense charisma, which he uses with great skill and deftness. Lastly, he hasn't aged a day since his 75th birthday.


Uncle Sam looks like he stepped right out of the James Montgomery Flagg’s World War I "I Want You!" recruiting poster. He is a tall, thin, old man (and has been since his 75th birthday), who is visibly in good shape despite being also obviously elderly. Sam's costume is a red-white-and-blue, stars-and-striped tailcoat, complete with top hat. Despite being 75 years old, he is still as spry and able as when he was younger.
