to me that plays to Cap's strength of character that comes though just by itself. You may not like that but I dont have a problem with that. In the comics Cap can have that affect on people that know nothing about hi, before they meet him. One thing that was not shown outside of Iron Man was Cap willing to put himself in harms way with no reservation when he was working with Tony during the Hellicarrier attack. Not to mention taking on Loki by himself.
