American Dream
Real Name: Shannon Carter
Search for 'American Dream' on Amazon

American Dream is in peak physical condition and is a skilled martial artist. She has disc weapons similar to Ricochet's and has superb aim. She now also carries a version of Captain America's shield, which she uses both defensively and offensively to great effect. Her fighting skills are matched by her leadership ability.

The cousin of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Peggy and Sharon Carter, Shannon Carter grew up idolizing Captain America. She was hired by Edwin Jarvis as a tour guide for the Avengers Headquarters, which at that time functioned only as a museum. When the new Avengers team was formed, she was determined to join. She wears a costume based on Captain America's. After joining the team as the "American Dream", Shannon soon proved herself to be an effective Avenger, and when the team saved the original Avengers from a dark parallel world, Captain America himself judged her worthy to wield the shield of the alternate Captain.

Carter is the leader of the "Dream Team" comprising herself, Bluestreak, Crimson Curse and Freebooter. All members of the Dream Team later became members of the new Avengers team A-Next. American Dream is also an ally of Spider-Girl, Earth Sentry, Blacklight, Coal Tiger, Argo and Captain America.

American Dream has battled foes such as the Sons of the Serpent, Seth, the Revengers, Fatal Force and Loki.
