    I see the Black Widow winning, since she's more agile, quick, cunning, and ruthless!

    Black Widow would win because Captain America is too much of a gentleman to fight a lady....especially one who is on "his side".

    Captain America because he's been fighting a lot longer and was built to be the perfect fighter.

    That Marvel chart is wrong. The Super Soldier serum gave Cap super strength. Black Widow doesn't have any super strength. - Cap will always win!

    Silly question. Natasha all the way. Cap's too old school; he'd never be able to hit a girl.

    come on? Seriously? Captain America, no doubt. Black Widow is bad***, but she's not Captain America. Stars and Stripes, Baby!

    Captain America is of the generation that would hold back while fighting a woman. Black Widow would completely take advantage of this situation, and wipe the floor with the chivalrous Captain. Widow for the win!

    Black Widow, she is a beautiful woman and Captain America would never do anything to bring harm to a lovely teammate, he can only hope that he won't end up with a tangled web of emotions!!!

    Black Widow would win a fight between herself and Captain America. Cap would never strike a lady.

    I say that Captain America will win. Although both of have equal strenght and skill, Captain America has a slight edge ahead in the area of intelligent, so in fight that factor might be the deciding capability for a winner.

    It would be a good fight, but in the end, Cap's strength and speed would win out over Widow's agility.

    Black Widow would win hands down because she doesn't pull her punches and Captain America always hesitates to hit any woman!
