    It would be a nice match to see, but Captain America trumps her in too many areas, including strategy, hand to hand combat ability, and durability. Winner: Captain America

    Captain America would win the fight against Black Widow because of his strenght as a man, and his intelligence and skills would help him find ways to not be defeated. Also his shield would help him alot as protection. He would definetely win because he is the first Avenger.

    Captain America would win against the Black Widow This would be a battle between warriors, being the Super Soldier that he is Cap would never under estimate an opponent be it male or female.

    Without a question Captain America. You have to read the comic books. Captain America was in almost every issue. The Black Widow only appeared occasionally. Iron Man acknowledged that Cap's leadership and tactical skills made him best suited to direct the team. Cap's got super strength. The Widow is strong by human standards but, she doesn't have super ability. Cap constantly trained to maintain his fighting capability and acrobatic skill. The Widow doesn't have anything to match his shield. Cap is a gentleman but, he wouldn't hold back on a woman if she were an enemy of the country.

    Black Widow would win. Hands down. She is more agile and more experienced with one on one combat. She is a master assassin where as Captain America is more of a tank so to speak. He has brute strength and stam, but not as well equipped to take on such a foe. A shield and a fist doesn't seem quite adequate enough to take down Black Widow.

    Captain America. Even though black widow has some of the same serum that Rogers was injected with Captain America got a full dose of it and is more of a fighter. Black Widow is more stealth.
