Why Captain America Is More Powerful Than You Thought

    Captain America is one of Marvel's most popular superheroes - and he's become more popular than ever since Chris Evans started playing the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2011.
    By now, pretty much everyone knows the basics of the character - the fact that he was a World War II soldier who had his physical attributes enhanced to the peak of human potential using an experimental serum - but there's actually a lot more than that to the man otherwise known as Steve Rogers.
    In this video, we'll tell you why Captain America is far more powerful than you ever thought he was.
    You see, Captain America may have already demonstrated that he has greater willpower than Thanos.
    Remember when he stopped the Mad Titan in his tracks, just after he arrived on Earth in Avengers: Infinity War? That might have been because Cap's willpower gave him a greater control over the Infinity Gauntlet than the prune-chinned intergalactic despot!
    But Cap also has more superpowers and abilities than most people know about, such as super-eyesight and immunity to all diseases and toxins.
    But his true superpower might be his insistence on not changing who he is. He wasn't compromised by physical power. He's more focused on changing society than he is on changing himself.
    Want to know more? You'll just have to watch the video!

    The same way it will be very difficult to be better than Heath Ledger as the Joker, it will be very difficult to be better as the Captain America of Chris Evans.

    A pity we saw him at his full potential only for one battle (at the end of Endgame). And if he doesn't age, why was he old at the very end, after only a few decades? I know it was done to end his participation in the MCU, but he really is Captain America, and they could have left him in the past, not aging him, to leave an open door for an eventual return.

    When Cap holds Thor's hammer on the "Avengers: Endgame", I can't close my mouth.

    He's the only Avenger Thor really listens to and respects without question. Even when they first meet, he actually does what Steve Rogers asks him to do (put the hammer down). And when Loki made fun of Cap it pissed Thor off.

    Okay, after you look at this look at the abilities of Captain Marvel. To me Captain Marvel is the most powerful Avenger. Again giving all of her superpower capabilities. Too many to list here, but look it up on TVclip

    Canonically, Cap is quick enough to avoid bullets, but he can still be shot depending on circumstance.

    Yes, Captain America is actually something of a genius!
    Steve looking at a power source: It seems to run on some sort of electricity!
    *What a genius am I right?*

      mikeg155 they said that sarcastically but ok😂

    • mikeg155
      mikeg155 8 days ago

      Yeah, they worded that poorly. Cap's intelligence is enhanced, but it's more attuned to military strategy and combat than anything else. He's a tactical genius with a mechanical mind as opposed to an engineering one like Stark who is a super genius.

    so now im a bit confused. does captain america really age or does he just age really slow, like say he ages a year for every 5-10 years. i wonder because and here now SPOILER ALERT lol, ending endgame how he is portrayed at the end. so he, I assume went back to his time. he went thru all the years til found by SHIELD, yet he was still his young looking self compared to him going thru the same time frame and ending up how he did ending endgame. did he not age or was it the ice he was trapped in that kept him from aging?

    All the SR and other TVclip "movie analysts" should just save their breaths. Captain America in the MCU is way more powerful than he was in the comics. This is just to please "American" fans. Cap America strength levels are no way in the realm of competing in hand-to-hand combat with Thanos! Endgame served as "Thank you and goodbye" movie for the key MCU characters over the past 10 years. Infinity War was a better movie in my opinion.

      In the comics Thor killed galactus
      And cap couldn't even touch him..
      And btw Without winter soldier serium he is weak.
      Another add in hypnotized Wolverine
      Ofc captain America's shield broke
      Because adamantium
      Destroys vibranium
      But thor's hammer isn't vibranium/Adamantium
      Odin made thor's hammer
      While thor took a power from
      A star. Read the comics kid
      Comics are the original
      The movies isn't...
      Thor destroyed Wolverine and made him normal again.

    Yes I'm captain America fan, but I'm a bigger fan of Thor. So I would like the producers to tell me why Captain America can control Thor's Hammer....you can only have one God of Thunder Captain America already have his special gift...so sooner or later Captain America will be able to take other Avengers power js....

    The Brothers answered that question about the resisting the glove. Thanos's expression was in regards to Cap not even coming close to Thanos power but still giving his all. Not that Cap was stopping Thanos at all.

    I think he 's shown to be more powerful in engame .Yes, he is worthy in engame or/already before of mjolnir . BUT he can also lift stormbreaker wich is not about worthiness but stenght (not particularly muscle stenght) wich thor decsribed to the guardians that their bodies would crumble and their minds to wich shows the his stenght.
