* TheFettered: Captain America is the embodiment of America's ideals and virtues, and has throughout his run has avoided killing whenever possible (well, there was a vampire that one time, but he doesn't count). He's killed several times, but it's always been only when he has no choice, and causes much angst. During World War II, he did kill people, but he was a soldier, and it's not something he boasts about. He also frets about damage to churches, and is very accommodating to accountants trying to total up superfight destruction.

** Probably the [[UpToEleven biggest good]] in all comics. Howso? During the JLA/Avegers crossover, ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'' himself deferred to Cap.

* TheParagon: It's pretty much a given that in all of comic books, regardless of companies, the only characters who are bigger paragons than Captain America are ComicBook/{{Superman}} and DC's Captain Marvel. See the page quotes. They're his promise to himself that he'll use his abilities only in pursuit of a future better than the present.

* AlternateContinuity: Combined in the UltimateUniverse. While the "regular" Cap is unusually sensitive and intelligent for any time period, the Ultimate version is a '40s Average Joe thrown into the modern day, leading to a mixture of confusion and outright [[JerkAss macho and jingoistic]] behavior. To be fair, he was advanced for his time in some respects, as evidenced by his treasured photo of him standing with the famed African-American fighter pilots, The Tuskegee Airmen. DependingOnTheWriter though, these hints can vary or even disappear entirely. (For instance, in a WarrenEllis-written appearance, Ultimate Cap once bragged about how much he hates educated people.)
