    Captain America would win because although he would struggle with the though of hitting a woman he knows that he has to conquer evil and the Black Widow is definitely EVIL!

    Captain American would win against the black widow because he is a super soldier. The official ratings base on captain america is wrong because speed and stronger is much higher then that of black widow because if you was watching the end of captain america movie you would have seen that he punch the punching bag so hard that it land half away across the room. Even through black widow is a woman it doesn't mean she can or can't beat him because she is a woman. There are woman out there that can beat up a guy but with captain background and strategies and abilities that he gain from the serum that he have the overall advantage against black widow.

    In a slug-fest? There would never be a slug-fest between these two. He's a lonely virgin who's only real date was canceled by creaming the Red Skull and Black Widow, no man is her equal, Tony Stark may lust after her but his and any other sideways approach would be deflected in an instant. Captain America's chivalry will not allow him to even consider hitting a lady, and if Black Widow would initiate the battle he would skillfully evade the the attack and then when she is exhausted he would surrender with her in his arms (and oh what arms) 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 fight with you.....is beside you! This would touch her heart deeply

    Black widow would win! Because there would be no fight. Captain America 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 which would touch her heart deeply and the rest is comic book history.

    I think Captain America wins the fight. The stats on the cards make it look pretty even, or maybe even weighted for Black Widow, but I think Captain America has the skills to win. Iron Man still beats them both...

    Black Widow will win due to the hesitation that Captain America will give in his ingrained and civilrous reluctance to hit a woman, due to being such a gentleman and all, this will be is split-second moment of weakness......

    Black Widow - Her official ratings may not be as high but women never give up and I believe she would stop at nothing to defeat Captain America!

    Captain America (with apologies and much respect for the Black Widow) - but my vote goes to him.

    Captain America, simply because he's enhanced in virtually every way by the Super Soldier serum. He also has great fighting skills, is a natural born leader, and never backs down from a fight (although, he'd have to have good reason to fight Black Widow and probably will be taken off guard at first).

    I know Black Widow would definitely jack-up Captain America due to her superior intellect and unmatched fighting skills. She can Beat me anytime, LOL...

    Captain America would win this fight. It may take awhile, but he'll outfight and outwit Black Widow to represent the Stars and Stripes!
