* InformedAttribute: Nick Fury says she's so ridiculously unpleasant that even war itself was less traumatic than her. While she is nasty-ish, she mellows out after the first volume of ''Avengers'', and isn't remotely as bad as some of her teammates, never reaching the sheer levels of awfulness Fury ascribes to her. But then, he's probably biased.

* WarIsHell: As much as he identifies himself as a war hero, he actually admits he despises people who glorify war and battle, calling it a horrible experience that he made himself proficient in so he could end it quickly as possible.

* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler: Cap felt so guilty over Peter Parker's death that he quit superheroics all together. [[AchillesInHisTent For a while, at least.]]]]
** [[spoiler: He deliberately tracked Miles Morales down just to tell him that he could no longer be Spider-Man in spite of Miles having approval of Nick Fury, Aunt May, Gwen Stacey, and Mary Jane. It took Miles stopping the Rhino and fending off a HYDRA attack for Cap to approve of him.]]

* MayDecemberRomance: Has this with Wasp after her falling out with Hank Pym. Thoroughly deconstructed in that their age difference and generational gap causes them to be too disinterested and scornful of each other's lifestyles to the point Wasp decides to cheat on Cap with Hank because she found him easier to socialize with despite his past history of brutally abusing her.


* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: He kicks an already beaten Bruce Banner unconscious.

to:

* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: He kicks an already beaten tricked the defeated Bruce Banner unconscious.(who turned himself into the Hulk ''on purpose'', fully aware that he would cause a 9/11 type of disaster) into thinking that he would be EasilyForgiven, and then gave him a well deserved kick in the face.


* AdaptationalJerkass: Captain America isn't just a man from the 1940s, but he's abrasively rude and holds many of the same bigoted views prevalent at the time.

to:

* AdaptationalJerkass: Captain America isn't just a man from the 1940s, but he's abrasively rude and holds many of the same bigoted views prevalent at the time. He's much more arrogant, politically incorrect, violent, and ruthless than the mainstream Steve Rodgers would choose to be.



* {{Jerkass}}: Shows recurrent shades of this. He's much more arrogant, abrasive, rude, politically incorrect, violent, and ruthless than the mainstream Steve Rodgers would choose to be.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: However, flaws or not, he's still Captain freakin' America. He's fairly forward thinking for his time even if he does retain some racism and misogyny, and though he doesn't show it as much and can come off as very cynical, he does share his canon counterparts strong sense of idealism and heroism. Spider-Man's death certainly helped tone down his jerkass side. See TookALevelInKindness.

* HopeBringer: Cap is seen as this by many on his own team, such as Tony Stark, despite his consistent unpleasant behaviors. He was this for pretty much the majority of the American populace after he helped prevent the United States from breaking apart, and saved multiple people from the machinations of Thor's evil son, Modi.

* GoodThingYouCanHeal: Especially when facing someone like the Hulk. Steve comes out of the fight with several broken bones and some bruises, but he mentions he'll be fine in a few days. Taken further in ''Ultimate Avengers 3'', when his healing factor manages to undo being ''vampirized''.

* {{Eagleland}}: He's a blend of both flavors, but can sometimes shift into a full on Type 2 that thinks he's a Type 1.
