Steve Rogers aka Captain America’s retirement in Avengers: Endgame surely brought tears to the eyes of MCU fans. The character was usually shown as the leader of the Avengers. He is one of those superheroes who never misused his powers. The serum made him strong. But whenever danger was lingering upon the world, he decided to take down only the enemies and ensure that not a single civilian loses his or her life. So let’s have a look at a few of the nicest things Captain America did in his MCU journey.
1. Commercial messages – Spider-Man: Homecoming
Spider-Man: Homecoming was the second reboot of Spider-Man. This was Tom Holland’s first standalone movie as Spider-Man. The plot of the movie was completely different in comparison to other Spider-Man movies. Captain America had a brief cameo in the film. He taped a series of vignettes over the years where he provided messages for schools to use to motivate the children. This is not some epic fight scene but it clearly shows the kindness of Captain America as he tries to help the children.
2. Special reinforcements – Avengers: Infinity War
Captain America always has a plan B on his mind whenever he fights the enemies. He tries to save the lives of the people he is working with. A good example is a scene where he arrives to save Vision and Wanda. Vision and Wanda were almost defeated by the Black Order. Vision also gets injured in the process and hence becomes weak and unable to fight his enemies. Here’s where Captain America arrives along with Falcon and Black Widow. Together they fight the Black Order and injures one of them. The Black Order is left with no other option except running away.
3. Lifts Mjolnir – Avengers: Endgame
The climax fight scene of Avengers: Endgame was surely one of the best action scenes in MCU history. But the best moment here was when Captain America was seen holding the Mjolnir. If you recall, he failed to do the same in Avengers: Age of Ultron. In normal terms, the Mjolnir cannot be lifted by anyone from Earth. It can be wielded by someone who is equally powerful like Thor. This shows that Captain America was perhaps a great superhero like Thor. He uses Mjolnir to attack Thanos and saves Thor.
4. Refuses to fight Winter Soldier – Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes were best friends. Bucky fell off a train in the first Captain America movie and he was presumed dead. But he came back as Winter Soldier in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Initially, he could not even recognize Steve Rogers and this continued till the end. In the final battle, Steve along with his allies try to stop the launch of Insight helicarriers. While going to replace the final chip, he is forced to fight his best friend Bucky Barnes. Since Bucky cannot recognize Steve, Steve drops his shield and says he will not fight Bucky anymore.
5. Does anybody want to get out – Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is loved by MCU fans even today because of its outstanding action sequences. But the elevator fight scene is termed as the best in the whole movie. Steve Rogers is questioned about the death of Nick Fury by Alexander Pierce. He then leaves for some other work. As the elevator goes down, a few people start to enter the lift on every floor. At one point, the lift gets filled up and Rogers is sure that he is about to be attacked. So he asks if anyone wants to get out before they get started. The scene shows that Rogers is confident about himself despite being outnumbered.
6. Fights himself – Avengers: Endgame
Captain America has fought a lot of super-powered enemies throughout his MCU journey. But the epic moment is where he has to fight himself in Avengers: Endgame. This happens during the time travel sequence. The Avengers travel back in time to retrieve all the six Infinity Stones and finish off Thanos once and for all. Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, and Bruce Banner travel to New York. Here they retrieve the Tesseract but when they try to escape, Steve Rogers has to fight his version of 2012. But Steve manages to defeat himself.
7. Saves Bucky Barnes – Captain America: Civil War
No one expected that the Avengers would fight among themselves in Captain America: Civil War. The main mastermind behind all this was Helmut Zemo. He wanted to take revenge on the Avengers. So he framed Bucky Barnes for the UN bombing and the murder of King T’Chaka. But Steve knew that Bucky was innocent. So he tried to save Bucky from being arrested. Also towards the climax, when it is revealed that Bucky killed Tony Stark’s parents, Tony tries to kill Bucky. But even here, Steve saves Bucky since he knew that HYDRA had control over Bucky’s mind.
8. Fights Rumlow – Captain America: Civil War
The character of Rumlow returned in Captain America: Civil War. He was seen stealing a biological weapon at the beginning of the movie. Captain America, Falcon, Black Widow, and Scarlet Witch try to stop him at their best. Steve tries to retrieve the biological weapon. In one of the scenes, he inspects a lying bag but finds it empty. Rumlow then throws a bomb into Captain America’s shield. But Steve throws away the shield to save the lives of the people around him. He then fights Rumlow without the shield.
9. Language! – Avengers: Age of Ultron
Steve Rogers belongs from a time when people and things were not fully developed. This might be the reason why he hates bad language. MCU movies, especially the Avengers franchise have been seen using profanities on a moderate level. This is what happens in Avengers: Age of Ultron. In the opening fight scene, Tony Stark utters a swear word. Captain America then tells him to keep control over his language. The scene is purely comedic. But it shows that overall, Steve is a nice person.
10. Sacrifices himself – Captain America: The First Avenger
Captain America has been one of those superheroes who cares more about others’ lives than his own. This was seen in Captain America: The First Avenger. Towards the climax, Captain America crashes the plane so that he can save the death of millions of civilians. He is not sure if he will die or survive, so he bid goodbye to Peggy and crashes the plane. Maybe most of us thought that this is the final time we would get to see Steve Rogers. But he continued to appear for the next 8 years on the big screen.
These are the Nicest Things Done By Captain America.
