* How is Cap still alive? He has peak human abilities, a bouncing, indestructible shield, and is one of the best martial artists in the universe, but that doesn't explain how he can take down a dozen armed soldiers. Even Batman needs stealth, psychological tactics, and cleverly placed gadgets but Cap can do it without breaking a sweat. The man isn't bulletproof.

*** Actually, they did a montage of his training in the issue that showed his creation; the government brought in all the best experts available to teach him hand to hand combat (specifically boxing and judo), strategy, tactics,etc.

** He had all of WWII and the modern years to learn martial arts. It's not like martial arts is a new thing. Even Western martial arts (like boxing and wrestling), often shown in media to be inferior, can make a man extremely deadly. And to be fair, Captain America is physically stronger and faster than Batman. Batman is the best you can 'realistically' make a human male, but Cap is overall better because he is powered up through the Serum. Cap is shown to be the fastest sprinter, the strongest fighter, the best shot, and whatnot all in one, which Batman couldn't possibly achieve because they involve training different muscles for different specialties.

* Cap has been show time and time again to be one of the greatest hand-to-hand combatants in the Marvel Universe. The problem is that they never really show you where he learned all that. He just takes the formula then, [[InstantExpert boom]], he can suddenly go one-on-one with Franchise/{{Batman}}, who spent 20 years training around the world.

**** Him being 'Captain' America is likely TheArtifact, both in and out of universe he was highly successful and publicized during WWII as a 'Captain' so that when they finally defrosted him and cleared up his MIA status he was promoted but the Army could have bent the rules so he still keeps the title of 'Captain' because that's what he was famous as. The only people he's ever shown regularly taking orders from is Nick Fury (head of SHIELD and often shown as Cap's direct superior) or the President (Commander-in-Chief and automatically above Cap no matter what) basically making him a rank unto himself.

** It doesn't absorb all kinetic energy, obviously, but rather, absorbs enough so that it wouldn't be effected negatively by it; when something hits it, it absorbs any potential damage from the impact with no worry, but can still be moved and knocked back. Similarly, when its thrown at something, it doesn't lose momentum because it keeps the energy, but since it can't move forward because of what it hit, it ricochets in order to channel this momentum. Physics are my weakest science, but I think that would adequetly handwave it.

*** Also adding to that, Wolverine didn't really fight supervillains much he joined the X-Men. For the most part, he flipped between a soldier and a wild man, so it'd give him a very different kind of experience, and thus, Steve is the 'most experienced' at fighting supervillains and saving lives.

Added DiffLines:
** On top of this, even Steve's not been completely without issue. How many times has he suffered something that caused the serum to 'break down' or become 'unstable' or something that left him BroughtDownToNormal, or even dying? Part of the problem is that, even with Steve Rogers, its not a perfect formula.

* Has Cap and Magneto ever had an heart-to-heart regarding WWII? Cause I kind of think they should have one.
