Have a teammate pipe up about how he's the champion of champions while his ass is getting kicked. Probably Sam.What is Cap supposed to do if he was face to face with Thanos?

Unfortunately we dont see the next panel where cap swallows his own shield in hopes of crapping out a better defense against thanos
Comfortably numb is my state of being!
I luv the Captain America and Falcon Jack Kirby classics. It seems funny that Kirby put alot more into black characters than alot of modern writers even though I doubt it was the popular thing at the time. Falcon was always a secondary character though. He needs an upgrade and an edge to be taken more seriously.
I found that book in my dad's collection when I was a kid and that scene was so serious. I found it again like ten years later and it's still just as cool.
Not true. He's the guy you want to have around if you need to hook up a DVD player.
To be honest I don't think the OP is trying to be disrespectful. He's asking a valid question. When was the last time this guy was relevant? No one that started reading comics in the last 10 has any reference for what his deal is. He talks to birds, that sounds really lame on the surface. What's wrong with asking people that do know why he's cool?

I've been wondering that for years, least he can shoot feathers now.
Not being a regular in Avengers doesn't mean he's gone away. I can't imagine Captain America without Sam. It doesn't seem right in my head.
It's possible that the OP meant no harm. The wording suggests otherwise though (and I know me some trolling when it comes to character I don't like). The subsequent posts are digressively ignorant.
You don't like him? Fine. There are 17 other characters on the team to pick from. You needn't diss all over one on eighteen when an argument could be made against any Avengers member, ever.
Freedom is the ability to live without fear of persecution. Nothing more, and certainly nothing less.
Dude is the Batman of the Marvel Universe. he basically has no powers but everybody looks up to him and all the bad guys quiver in fear whenever they see him or hear his name, even ones who are so powerful that they usually need entire teams to take them down.
Take away his WWII history and leadership ability and dude is just a soldier draped in a giant American flag with a shield. If you don't believe me, look back on any of the rare Avengers runs where he's on the team but is not the leader, like when Captain Marvel (Monica) was team leader. Cap basically just stood in the background quietly during team conversations and tossed his shield around during action scenes while the more powerful members did all the heavy lifting.
