    Captain America, because he has a shield made from vibranium that is industructable and even though Black Widow has speed and fighting skills on her side captain america has strenghth and smarts on his and he would use his shield to deflect her bullets and her kicks and punches and he would sheild hit her the face and she would be knock out and thats the fight Captain America wins. Go Captain America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    good to see they are breaking out the humor before the movie comes out right? i mean this is a joke of a question right, a man who is near perfect human evolution vs someone who was trained well, They should just have a drinking contest dont think the captain would lose to many people in that. Yeah im gonna put my money on the Captain one hit and its over.

    Cap, all the way. He'll hold back at first until the Widow gets a couple of shots in and then let loose.

    The Black Widow wouldn't stand a chance unless Captain America turns his back and Cap would never do that in a fight. - Captain America is #WINNING

    I'd have to say Black Widow. She's an assassin. Black Widow wouldn't hesitate to put anyone down. Captain in all of his glory might hesitate because well Black Widow is a woman. According to those official stats speed and durability are matched between them. Captain is from a different era but in the Avengers he seems to be assimilated into the present time. Captain is a super soldier but Captain also has a heart. Black Widow an assassin does not. She would do anything and everything to beat whoever stood in her way.

    BLACK WIDOW because it says so in her name: in order for her to be a "widow" she has to kill the man! (It doesn't say black widower!).

    I think Ultimately Captain America would win, but Black Widow is that kinda chick that know how to kill you 5 times before you hit the ground! It would be a really close match.

    Black Widow for the win! What she lacks in strength in comparison to Cap, she more than makes up for in speed and agility. She puts Cap down!

    Captain America! Although his virtues would cause him to avoid striking Black Widow, he would still be able to counter her attacks all day long. She is forced to give up and walk away.
