    Cap would win hands down. Its a super soldier vs. an assassin. Although Black Widow is higly trained, Cap would be a step of ahead of BW. BW would tire very quickly, unlike Cap whose exhaustion levels are unlike any regular human. And besides, he has a shield.

    Cap would win but it wouldn't be an easy win. Black Widow has a lot of technical ability when it comes to fighting hand-to-hand. But Cap has a shield made of freaking vibranium. the hardest substance known to man in the Marvel Universe. One swing w/ that thing on BW's head, she's down bro. that's all there is to it. The fight would just come down to whether he can get some solid hits with his shield.

    Captain America for sure. He's a genetically enhanced super soldier. She's awesome, but she's only human.

    Even though everyone loves Scarlett as Black Widow, as an old skool Avengers reader. for sure it would be Captain american that would win a fight between the 2. But Cap might have a hard time hitting a girl. But his body and strength is enhanced as he is the Super Soldier. So he would take out Black widow

    Just because the Black Widow is a lady that doesn't mean she cant kick Captain Americas butt! (: She has world-class martial arts training in both hand-to-hand and armed combat, even though she has no super human attributes like Captain America, she is by far one of their most formidable members in the Avengers.

    This is kinda hard, first of Captain America is a super soldier and has a lot more strength than Black Widow but he is not invincible. I feel like Capt will be unable to fight a women just be cause he does not want to lose another 1. So Black Widow wins cause he's is a born assassin, she's a fighter and a killer. She can fined is weakness fast and use it, that what they do... So sorry Capt but Black Widow got you beat.

    I would have to say Black Widow. Captain America is to much of a gentleman to fight a woman.
