William Burnside is the Captain America of the 1950's in the Marvel Universe, whose mind has been deranged by evil forces.

OriginEdit

A man obsessed with Captain America and the good he did, William Burnside discovered that evil forces were planning to use the super soldier serum to make their own evil Captain America.  Burnside managed to take the formula to the US and convince the FBI to let him become the next Captain America.  However, the serum they took was tainted and resulted in Burnside becoming dangerously insane and a threat to himself and others.
