MCU Cap can tank an angry hammer from Thor, but gets knocked on his ass by Batroc.

Comics Cap has so many inconsistencies, it's ridiculous.

Only thing I can say is Chris Evans' Cap beats Rob Liefeld's Cap.

foo monkey: MCU Cap can tank an angry hammer from Thor, but gets knocked on his ass by Batroc.


If you mean that first meeting in The Avengers, the hammer was coming nearly straight down, so it didn't change his center of gravity.  Batroc was attacking mostly horizontally.  I suspect swinging Mjolnir sideways may have knocked Cap into some trees.

Agent Carter shot several (horizontal) rounds into an unprepared shield-wielding Cap and he didn't fall down. Cap also tanked a horizontal hammer slam from Thor in act one of Age of Ultron. Vibranium doesn't care about angles.

One of the weirdest parts about his ending in Avengers: Endgame is that it's basically out of character for Cap to abandon his friends to go and live a life with Peggy Carter. While it's a nice ending, it never made sense for him to abandon his friends, especially with how he was built up over the years.

Author does realize that it was a near-instantaneous absence, right? The man was asleep for 70 years. I think he's earned this.

He didn't abandon his friends. The Thanos threat was over (and his younger self still existed in the timeline), and I assumed he felt he could finally live life for himself. The only weird thing, as with many time travel stories, is why didn't he warn people about major disasters that he knew were coming.

Smart Hulk and maybe Dr.Strange warned him not to. Even if no one knew he was not planning on coming back (well, besides Bucky) they'd have to have come up with a idea about how he was going to return the stones. At the very least, there'd have been discussions about not messing with the timeline too much.
I also wouldn't be surprised if Peggy Carter told Howard Stark. I mean, they worked together for decades and he never met her husband?

Comics Cap is the worthy one.

MCU Cap has a potty mouth.

The whole premise of TFA tells me that the author had a deadline to make...

That read like someone who watched all of the MCU and thumbed through a couple of Cap comics.

Sure, but Cap hadn't been unfrozen for that awful long.  He was still learning how to use his super powers.

I think they meant abandoned them to whatever came next. It doesn't fit that he'd just assume that was it, Thanos is dead and that means the earth is safe forever. The Cap they'd established wasn't about that, he'd just look for a new mission.
