Peter M. - I'd like to keep it comic related, but if you've got a perfect moment you really want to share, go ahead.

Okay, the very last scene/moment in the original TAKING OF PELHAM 123.

BATMAN BEGINS: When Batman shows up at Arkham Asylum to rescue Rachel. Scarecrow gives his goons a pep talk, then Batman proceeds to take them out one at a time. I must have read two dozen scenes like that in the comics. The only difference was instead of Scarecrow getting away while his thugs kept the Caped Crusader occupied, Batman logically and satisfyingly caught Crane and hoisted him on his own petard.

I feel the same for all these moments mentioned so far.

Chris Evans, rightfully so, is referred  plenty. Like when he tells Widow to get her feet off the dashboard in WINTER SOLDIER.

I thought Neal McDonough had a great look for a wartime Dum Dum Dugan in CAPTAIN AMERICA and AGENT CARTER.

I think Wonder Woman charging in to save the residents of No Man's Land in WONDER WOMAN is a perfect or near- perfect superhero cinematic moment.

So many to be honest.

A sampling:
BATMAN BEGINS: Liam Neeson's 'Legend' speech to Bruce while he is in prison

CAPTAIN AMERICA:THE WINTER SOLDIER when Cap attacks the Quinjet - that was Cap in action

AVENGERS:INFINITY WAR when Thanos' forces attack Wakanda and Black Panther and Cap just run for it and leave everyone standing, with Cap running that little bit faster than Black Panther
(Chris Evans is without a doubt my favourite actor in the MCU)

SUPERMAN - the helicopter rescue scene tears me up every time I see it as just a perfect representation of comics

IRON MAN 'Tony Stark made this from a box of scraps.....in a cave'
'Well I'm not Tony Stark'

I could go on

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
The early scene with Cap’s raid on the SHIELD ship that was hijacked by HYDRA.  Beginning with leaping out of the Quinjet WITHOUT a chute to the speed in which he navigated the ship. Every move he made was so...so crisp and decisive and devastating to the enemy.  The use of the shield was epic.  

Beautiful stuff. Perfect.

Captain America: The First Avenger
Young Steve Rogers solving the flagpole challenge and diving on the practice grenade. In fact...the entirety of the movie BEFORE he underwent the SS treatment was flawless.

Perfect

From the first AVENGERS movie... When Captain America steps in to stop the fight between Iron Man and Thor, Odinson brings his hammer down on Cap's shield, and the resounding impact hurls the thunder god back and flattens trees in the surrounding area...

Why emphasize "before" the super-soldier treatment, David?

For me, Cap's transformation scene was excellent, especially including his immediate pursuit of the Nazi. I thought that was a perfect depiction of what JB has (also perfectly) described as the ideal Captain America in action: looks like Superman, but can move like Spider-man.

@Mr. Byrne - I think so.  Bucky being an adult in this movie made sense and his friendship with Steve served the story very well.  Especially since Bucky becomes Winter Soldier down the line.

@Micheal Penn - I emphasize the BEFORE because after the serum I see a of things in CA:TFA as “less than” perfect:  The nearly great USO costume working better than the first costume (even though it wasn’t supposed to), the seemingly short timespan of Captain America in action during WW2 (leaving little room for other adventures), and some other things made the second and third acts work not as well as the first in my opinion.

Captain America The First Avenger - That gigantic, Jack Kirby tank in the Commandos montage.
