Black Widow wins due to her superior agility, sexier costume, and feminine wiles!
captain america, hands down!
because he can't die.
Black Widow.... because she quick on her feet and more skillful then the Captain.
Captain America would win in the fight, but being a gentleman he couldn't finish her. Which would give her an opportunity to beat him at the end.
Captain America seems the obvious choice in a fair fight. If it's winner take all, then Black widow might have the upper hand between both her spy training and her assassin style. She'd be more ruthless and risk more to win a winner take all. So it does depend on the situation - Sparring match or all out fight.
This is not a definitive answer.
captain america! usa!!!!
Captain America would win! After all, he's a "SUPER SOLDIER"! Any move Black Widow would use against him, he would counter it. Plus, he's a SUPER SOLDIER! I don't know if they will introduce Black Widow's sting in "The Avengers" but even with that, he has his shield so she could not do anything to him. DId I mention that Captain America is a SUPER SOLDIER??
Captain America has more super hero abilities and strength. In a no holds bar death match...Captain America would prevail the winner.
black widow 4 sure :) girls rule boys drool!
In the America we live in now, Black widow would win. She would just file a harassment charge against Captian America. Say he made her feel uncomfortable, and that he was waging a war on women. The democrates would rally around the Black Widow as the poor victim, and have Captain America kicked off the Avengers.
Captain America! of course!
Black Widow will triumph. Black Widow and Captain America are so evenly matched in terms of fighting skills and intelligence level, both are superior to their other hero counterparts also. But the Black Widow can think faster and plan ahead better being a woman. And beauty can also distract an opponent.
Black Widow would take their first confrontation because Steve's too moral to hurt her at first. If they had more altercations than Cap probably wouldn't feel too bad about hitting her. Black Widow for this one though. ^_^
Black Widow would have the initial advantage due to Cap's moral code. All is takes is a second to win. I give it to Black Widow.
BLACK WIDOW WINS!
Black Widow would have Captain America scream 'Uncle' due to her intensity and willingness to inflict damage where the good Captain Would hesitate. Plus, his values from the past may inhibit him from going full battle mode on her. She is exceptionally skilled and energetic.
In a fair fight, Cap obviously wins, but we all know that the Black Widow fights dirty & would win a no-holds barred slug-fest.
Black Widow!!! Girl Power
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
