Captain America (vol. 5) was an ongoing comic book series published for four years from January 2005 to July 2009 by Marvel Comics. It starred the superhero Captain America, and the entire series was written by Ed Brubaker. It was the fifth Captain America series with this title to be published, following series that ran from 1968–1996, 1996–1997, 1998–2002, and 2002-2004. After its fiftieth issue (July 2009), the series was renumbered to match the numbering of all the volumes of the title (454, 13, 50, 32, and 50), and volume 1 resumed publication with issue #600 with Brubaker remaining as writer.

The series was best known for reviving Captain America's World War II partner Bucky Barnes as the Winter Soldier in issue #6, the presumed death of Steve Rogers in issue #25, and Bucky taking over the mantle of Captain America in issue #34.
