    Cap would win hands down (not that he would want to do that to a fellow Avenger), Cap has heightened abilities being the supersoldier. Black Widow doesn't have any super strength or powers. She may get far with her wit or stealth but in the end Cap and his shield would prevail!

    i still think cap has this because besides his super human strength he is still a master tactician (stated in both the comics and the movie) and this would allow him to win.

    Captain America for sure. He's the ultimate fighter not to mention the super-soldier serum. Black Widow would put up a decent fight though.

    the captain would destroy her. I wouldn't mind getting it on with her. And by that I don't mean by fighting.

    Black Widow may have more fighting experience, But Captain America is an enhanced supersoldier with super strength. A hard enough hit from him would unfortunately maybe kill her. Captain America wins this one.

    Captain America. Super strong, enhanced senses,endurance, speed and healing. The Black Widow has no powers. She is formidable but, in the marvel universe, she ranks below Cap. Cap trained, fought and lived long before the Widow existed.

    I would have to give the edge to Captain America but only a slight edge. Both he and Black Widow are comparable in their skills, abilities and strong thinking skills. However, Captain America was born out of World War II when the American ideal was the standard to follow and Black Widow came out of a Communist regime that denied certain people their rights. Even though both countries have changed since the 1940's, I believe that the American values borne out of that time have better and stronger roots. Captain America would be the winner.

    Obviously, the Black Widow would win. Steve Rogers, being from the 1940s would hesitate to hit a woman and Black Widow being a consummate professional would teach him the error of his ways.

    Though I'd normally root for the girl, I'd have to go with Captain America on this one. Black Widow's an excellent fighter, but Cap is stronger and faster. She'd put up a good fight, but he'd win in the end (and fairly, I might add).
