** Notably, while written in over-the-top 1960s comics prose, the scene ''remains'' strong today because Sharon ''didn't'' flinch, and ''couldn't'' be sure if Cap had understood her sign to move, as she had to make it ''very'' subtle while enjoying Zemo's full attention. Arguably, it was her EstablishingCharacterMoment as a BadAss secret agent that she could pull it off convincingly, and it also shows that her Silver Age persona wasn't so weak and useless as it's often [[{{Flanderization}} flanderized]] nowadays.

* ThouShaltNotKill: Averted throughout -- surprisingly enough, even in her original Silver Age stories, when Cap would usually firmly adhere to it. Not that she was murderous or anything, like the DarkerAndEdgier '90s version sometimes appeared, but she was perfectly willing to use her sidearm when it was needed. One example comes from a story where the [[ComicBook/RedSkull Red Skull's]] heavily armed Nazi assassins had ambushed Cap, who put up a fair fight but was about to be shot by the last man standing. Sharon got him first.

* ShootYourMate: In an early Silver Age story, was forced into a straight-up scenario by Baron Zemo, who had captured Cap and gave her a loaded gun, but managed to subvert it. After some ''very'' brief quiet anguish, she [[TakeAThirdOption took a third option]] by making eye contact with Cap and giving him a subtle cue to move, shooting ''just'' in time to barely miss him as he broke loose and jumped the troops who were guarding him. In the chaos that ensued, it took a while to subdue him again, and Zemo was satisfied that she'd been ready to kill him, now trusting her loyalty. (This was early enough in the series that he didn't know about their ''personal'' relationship.)

* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: To an extent, with Cap in some newer comics. Especially true for Creator/MarkWaid's run in the 1990s. Sharon was the tough character who [[BadassInDistress saved Cap out of trouble]], was willing to ShootTheDog and, generally, was cynic, bitter and had shades of a NinetiesAntiHero. Cap was the sensitive AllLovingHero who [[DoesntLikeGuns Didn't Like Guns]] and was upset when the government was mean to illegal immigrants. Averted in the Silver Age and during much of [[Creator/EdBrubaker Brubaker's]] run, where she's still tough, but more feminine.


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInJerkass: When she returned from the dead, as compared to her previous characterization. Somewhat justified, in that she had spent several years left behind in hellish third-world countries in between, fighting with primitive guerrillas in an atrocious civil war and ultimately locked up in a [[FictionalCountry thinly disguised]] North Vietnamese death camp, which left her pretty well [[ShellShockedVeteran broken]] by the time she was able to escape.
** Also, has been [[ReConstruction rolled back]] again somewhat since the 1990s.

Sharon was soon developed into the main love interest for Cap. In issue #95 (November, 1967), Cap revealed his SecretIdentity to her and offered his marriage proposal. With Sharon turning down his offer, pointing out that she is already married. That is MarriedToTheJob. She continued to serve as a regular supporting character until ''Captain America'' vol. 1 #233 (May, 1979). There she is forced to commit suicide as part of a plot by hypnotist Doctor Faustus. That was supposed to be the end of the character, KilledOffForReal. She remained a dead character for nearly two decades. Until she turned up quite alive in issue #445 (November, 1995), courtesy of writer Creator/MarkWaid. Sharon was FakingTheDead for years, and her return was part of a major storyline of the time.
