Project Rebirth was a secret US government project administered by the US Army to create Super Soldiers for its World War II efforts. Their first and last success was Steve Rogers eventually became Captain America.


"What was Project: Rebirth's goal?"
"That's still classified to all but Omega clearance, Coulson. But to give you an idea of its importance, what Stark has is just a prototype...a reject. The final product was lost... Although you can bet your life we'll never stop looking for it.
Phil Coulson and Nick Fury[src]

Steve Rogers was chosen by Abraham Erskine to become a Super Soldier with the Super Soldier Serum. The test was successful but Heinz Kruger shot Erskine and took the serum. After Erskine's death, Rogers killed Kruger, avenging the good scientist's death.[1]

After that, the serum was lost, and the project was disbanded.

The Strategic Scientific Reserve created a file box entitled Project Rebirth; inside that box included a picture of Steve Rogers before his transformation as well as a Vita-Ray Detector. [2]
