    Black Widow would win against Captain America because she has more intelligence and strength than him. These are the two key things that would help her defeat Captain America.

    Black Widow (Natasha Romanova) would be able to defeat Captain America (Steve Rogers) due to her more current and advanced training. She would also have an advantage due to Capt. America's morale compass. He is the Avenger that did not allow Hulk to cholk the Black Widow when she looked to the Avengers for assistance on the tv cartoon. From that I believe he would have a hard time really harming a woman, more over this woman. They have similar fighting ability in contrast to the other Avengers who may have been chemically altered, or have a suit of armor of some kind. But solely out of the fighting mindset, I think Black Widow could defeat Capt. America.

    Black widow would win! Because there would be no fight. Captain America's chivalry will not allow him to even consider hitting a lady, if Black Widow would initiate the battle he would skillfully evade the the attack and then when she is exhausted he would surrender and declare her the winner and tell her is a soft (Steve Roger's "waiting for the right partner") voice. "The only way I would ever fight with you is.... beside you" which would touch her heart deeply.....and she would fall even more deeply in love with him and the rest is comic book history.

    Black Widow. Captain America is a nice guy but Black Widow is a woman.As a woman we have more tricks up our sleeve than anyone. She has the name Black Widow for a reason and that's because she's a deadly chick to mess with.

    Captain America will win but only because he outdoes the Black Widow in durability. It will be a long drug out fight.

    Captain America would win, due to his more extensive amount of fighting experience.

    Captain America would because he has some healing ability or other super-human abilities and Black Widow can only beat him up for so long.

    Captain America would win because he has the super solider serum in him and his shield is awesome.

    Black Widow would win. Cap is old fashioned and would have a hard time hitting a woman so he would spend most of his time defending rather than attacking. They are both enhanced and she is ruthless and he would be handicapped by his ethics.

    CAPTAIN AMERICA wins. Black widow may use the typical devious "charms" that woman use but in the end, she is in black and loses.

    Considering Black Widow's earned one more blue square, I have to say she'll win.

    Captain America Wins, Battle tested Great American Soldier.. His strength and intelligence would overwhelm the Widow, and at any instance the Widow thinks she may have the upper hand. A Shield smash or throw would quickly take the winds from her sails.

    Probably Black Widow, unless Cap can get over not hitting a woman.
