** When even ''SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker'' won't work with you (and this was the baddie who once became the ''Iranian ambassador!''), you've crossed a line.

* SpannerInTheWorks: Turns out [[spoiler:Hydra!Steve]] didn't quite cover his tracks as well as he thought he did during TheReveal issue. The circumstances were fishy enough for Taskmaster and Black Ant to look into it, and due to the plane crash being in Bagalia (the "nation of super-criminals"), the black box recorder was easily stolen. [[spoiler:And it has Steve confessing to being a Hydra agent ''on tape''.]] Taskmaster proceeded to show the tape to Maria Hill, and now the jig is officially up.

* Borderline example -- there's a reason his SuperSerum was so sought after. Technically it doesn't push any of his abilities to a "superhuman" level, but few if any humans have ''[[JackOfAllTrades every single athletic ability at peak potential all at once]]'' (speed plus stamina plus strength, etc.). Thus, he is quite capable of holding his own with people who have more impressive superpowers. In real life, athletes have to make tradeoffs between strength, endurance, agility etc. and also different body types are better suited to different athletic disciplines -- the very best sprinters are large and muscular whereas the best long-distance runners are short and skinny. Demonstrated by decathletes who have to train for ten different events -- they are not as good at them as those athletes who specialize in them. Cap ''doesn't'' have these limitations; he can sprint 100m in 9.75 seconds, bench press 500kg, and perform Olympic-level feats of gymnastic ability. However one effect of the serum is that Cap doesn't fatigue like normal humans so he can exert himself at full effort almost indefinitely -- for example he could complete a marathon in one hour and eight minutes as he could maintain a sprinting speed for the entire distance.

** Intercompany {{crossover}}s with Creator/{{DC|Comics}} have established that, physically, he and Franchise/{{Batman}} are very nearly equal. Bats's evaluation is that, in a fair fight, Cap could probably beat him, but it would be a very long fight -- which means Batman would [[CombatPragmatist never intend on fighting him fairly.]] In fact, one intercompany crossover made a point of showing Batman and Cap briefly testing each other, then stop fighting and start discussing the situation. Both of them quickly realized that they were so evenly matched that the fight would both take a long time ''and'' prevent them from working together in order to figure out how to beat the villain who was manipulating events.

Frayed tempers, judgments...[[note]](Specifically, since Cap and Supes were the ones most attuned to their home universes, this meant they were the ones who unwittingly instigated most of the bad blood between both teams - and later, just each other - due to their distorted views of the other universe, until everyone finally managed to talk things down.)[[/note]]
