Next, metalworkers must be concerned with the types of metals being joined. Thin sections, for example, are more likely to warp than thick sections. And the composition of the metals is just as important. Abilities A wimpy weakling before being injected with a super soldier serum, Rogers doesn’t technically have superpowers, though his strength, speed, reflexes and healing powers are at the “zenith of natural human potential.” Plus, those years spent fighting Nazis and other foes on the battleground have given Captain America a brilliant military mind.
