"To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.."
(Elbert Hubbard)


I studied Physics at the University of Vienna, but I'm interested in all natural sciences.

Since I don't believe in life after death I try to explore and learn as much as I can about this world.

comment Around what time did this scene where Ted encounters Naomi take place?
The episode itself says "6 years earlier", which would mean it's 2007. - My guess: the joke is that Ted's obsession with the "Thank You" note not only made him break his costume tradition, but also miss the Slutty Pumpkin.

comment Why use the Feds rather than the US Marshals in The Family?
In the movie it's not actually important that they are FBI instead of US Marshals. They never flash their badges, they are never shown to interact with local law enforcement, and the reason the family gets found also has nothing to do with them being FBI (e.g. a mole, database hacked,...). So, due the irrelevance of what kind of "Feds" they actually are, I'd consider it a goof.

The Production Notes also contain this quote from director Joe Johnston: He doesn‘t have any super powers per se— his powers are basically what the human body can do, but taken to a level of physical perfection. I have to say, that‘s what appealed to me about the character and about doing a film. - This seems to confirm that Captain America is peak human level in the MCU, just like in the comics. If you amend your answer with this I'll accept it.

comment Does Captain America possess superhuman strength in the MCU?
The thing about Captain America is that even though he has been enhanced, he is still "one of us", he is still human, he is the best a human can be. The MAoS scene made me wonder whether the MCU changed that and elevated his powers beyond human capability, which is what I would call "superhuman" (see the Marvel Wiki quote in the question). - But you are right, I should have formulated my question more clearly. I don't want to do it now, because you have already given an answer.

Yes, the scene proofs that Captain America is stronger than a normal human, but has he ever been shown to perform a feat of strength comparable to moving a 40 ton rock (with its tracks locked the bulldozer is basically a rock)?

@JohnP - I agree that in a comic'verse peak human level might be exaggerated.

Could you describe the scene a bit more? My memory of the scene is vague, but I think that even though it's a steel door, he neither punches through, nor bends it out of shape. It's a door that slides open, and he exerts enough force to break the lock, not the door itself. I might be wrong though.

@JohnP - The people who e.g. pull trucks ususally do so on solid ground, with the wheels able to move freely, which minimizes friction. I think moving a 40+ ton bulldozer on soft ground, with it's tracks locked (they weren't moving) is superhuman territory. - I don't remember if in the movies Captain America had been shown to exhibit strength on a superhuman level, i.e. lift/push/pull something that weighed several tons. But it's been too long since I have seen the movies to be sure, hence my question.
