Captain America might have been the ‘first Avenger’ but there’s something innately cool about him that makes him the best. He does not have any godly superpowers like Thor or Spiderman. He does not have armour and high tech gadgets like Iron Man. He’s just a great fighter with superhuman strength with one hell of a shield.
The First Avenger
No matter how much you love the Avengers or any other superhero group, you will always have a favorite one. Captain America might be considered less powerful than his peers. But, let’s not forget that he was trapped in ice for decades and he survived that. He has always been a soldier at heart. So, let’s find out why he is the best Avenger.
Why Captain America is the best Avenger
- If you really know this Marvel superhero, you will know that he has a custom built battle van which allows him to travel incognito. Now, isn’t that cool? Almost as cool as the Batmobile.
- You might also know that Captain America also has enhanced sight. And it is not only in matters of distance. He has the ability to process incoming visuals faster than normal humans. This gives him an added advantage and edge on approaching threats.
- When Steve Rogers became Captain America, his body wasn’t the only thing that became enhanced (and super hot). His mental abilities also took a huge leap. It might be an underrated power, but he has enhanced intelligence too. He has great planning and adapting skills. This power allows him to make superfast calculations and analyze threats and situations. And that is why he can change courses and outcomes based on his enhanced reasoning powers and abilities.
- A lot of you might not know this, but Captain America is actually resistant to hypnosis. This is because he does not lose focus. You will see that gases and chemicals can’t really put an imbalance on him. Earlier, villains would use hypnosis to capture heroes and get information out of them. Although times have changed now, you all saw what happened to Barton when Loki compromised him.
- If you have watch Avengers: Age of Ultron, you might remember the scene where the Avengers take turns to lift Thor’s hammer. And Captain America manages to, if not lift, badge the hammer. You could see the smile fade off Thor’s face. This might not be a highlight of Cap’s powers. But, it sure is worth mentioning.
