* HumbleHero: Part of the point of him. He wasn't anything too special before he got the Super Soldier Serum, and he's pointed out he wasn't ''supposed'' to be unique, just the first of many. His humility is one of the reasons he's the embodiment of the American Dream: he's a nobody who became a somebody, and he's eternally thankful for it. Perhaps best summed up by the following exchange from ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'':

* DisposableSuperheroMakerDisposableSuperheroMaker: The man who created the super soldier serum that made Cap was killed, and NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup is firmly in place. Cap is the only success story of the project.



*** Steve Rogers does have at least one 'power', though it's not good in a fight. Even the flawed super-soldier variants like Nick Fury's greatly increases their life span. Years after his deep freeze, Cap's really not getting much older than his WWII days.

** In [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0664.html this]] ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' page, from while Cap was supposedly KilledOffForReal, notice the chauffeur waiting to take Roy back to the land of the living. Now notice the one '''beside''' him.



** The easiest way to make even Captain America want to kill you? Look at Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson or Tony Stark the wrong way. Steve will come for you and it will not be pretty.
