Agreed on Cap. That's one of very few MCU films without glaring flaws. It's tied with Iron Man 1 for my #2. I saw the movie six times in theaters, the most I've ever seen a film. Loved the Peggy Carter/ Steve Rogers relationship, loved the pulpy feel, loved the origins. The Valkyrie crash scene is still my favorite in the entire MCU.
Thor is flawed imo, and a missed opportunity. The human element needed to be there, but they could've done so much more with it than slapstick comedy. Think of the Richard Donner Superman and all the great moments Supes had with Lois Lane. Thor had nothing that came remotely close to that, and connecting Thor to his new world.
