Jonathan Frakes, better known as Lieutenant Riker from Star Trek: The Next Generation once dressed up as Captain America. This was before Frakes had made it big and he donned the costume for a number of fan conventions.

He Was Slated To Die In The 1960’s

While Captain America dying, or almost dying has been a plot point in this comic franchise for many years, the first time Marvel planned to do this was in the 1960s. The story was that in issue number 300, the Captain would turn against his hero status and look for other ways to save the world, including teaming up with Dr. Doom. The world would turn against him in kind and he would be killed. Eventually, Marvel decided this would go against the entire premise of Captain America.
