*** He wanted to live a life with Peggy. In that sense, basically every movie ''does'' refute that idea.

** Or, to put it another way...
--->'''Col. Phillips:''' You do know that's nuts, right?\\
'''Zola:''' The sanity of the plan is of no consequence... because he can ''do it''.

** It's "first Avenger", not "oldest Avenger". Cap was a founding member of the team, since in the MarvelCinematicUniverse he's explicitly unfrozen before then, unlike in the MarvelUniverse. And when they write down that first roster, the only way anyone else could go ahead of him is if they write down the aliases in alphabetic order and count Black Widow first.

* What was RS' actual plan? barring bombing major cities with a big plane (IMO a massive waste of the power he had) it has been shown that tesseract weapons are not invincible so what was the plan?

** Howard Stark says they don't have anything that compares to Red Skull's weapons. He had a ''major'' technological advantage, which would have won him the war. It's not just "bombing major cities with a big plane," it's, "Wipe out anyone who could resist me using my superior, nearly untouchable technology and take over the world."

* They built the base in Brooklyn because it uses a lot of electrical power and the Senator would not approve the requisition of generators for the project. So they hook into the city's power grid and "may dim half the lights in Brooklyn". It would probably have been more practical to build the base near the Hoover Dam, with huge amounts of electrical power available at the drop of a hat. Easier for security too, as you can build the base in the middle of the desert. No need for a storefront, [[HumorMode and no chance of spies escaping by using a submarine]].

** Also, this is the guy who's gonna fly a plane into an ice sheet an hour later. He's not necessarily thinking of his own survival as Priority One.

* Regarding the "convalesce room" near the end: why do a baseball program at all? Why not use the news about Emperor Hirohito proclaiming the total surrender of Japan (and signaling the end of the entire world war), for example? That way, the Captain would've been MUCH more relaxed instead of totally freaking out, thinking that maybe the Germans got him and plan to brainwash him or sth; if the plot demands that he find the room to be dodgy, there are many ways, such as noticing the "view" outside to be a cardboard cutout, for instance.

*** A play-by-play shouldn't have been that memorable, except that they happened to pick a game that contained a play (an inside-the-park grand slam) of which, as of 2015, there have only been 226 in ''the entire history of baseball''. Random "two on, two out" stuff would have been fine.
