Poll: Could MCU Cap Tank A Baseball Bat To The Face? (75 votes)

yeah he tanks it 55%
it hurts him but he stays conscious 23%
the bat would break over his head causing only minor damage 16%
he gets KO'ed 7%

if I swung a wooden bat at his face, would it cause any real damage?

Depends who is swinging but in most cases it would break and stagger him

Probably just staggers him, nothing bad.

Tanks it. The guy has taken numerous blows to the head from Bucky's metal arm and Iron Man without much trouble.

Tanks, unless you're a cyborg/alien/superhuman of some kind. I don't want to make any assumptions.

No worse than being punched by Bucky.

How is he not tanking it? He took several hits from Buckys metal arm and was barely dazed.

Bucky's metal arm >>> baseball bat

It would be stupid to think he couldn't outright tank it.

Pretty much what everyone else is saying, Steve's tanked worse than being hit by a baseball bat.

He already tanked Bucky’s metal arm so he should be mostly unharmed.

He would probably have a concussion. Bucky hitting him left him hospitalized for s while. He certainly can’t tank a full grown man hitting him with a bat. Obviously he can endure more than the average man

I think it would hurt little bit but no damage. Just because you can take hits from bucky it does not mean it does not hurt.

@symbiosis89: lol at your argument. Sure cap was hospitalized but after being Stabbed , shotted , and being punched by winter soldier arm 6 times in a row and after that he falled a considerable amount of height. A baseball bat would give him tickles

Super Soldiers have good durability feats as a whole. He tanks it effortlessly, especially since he already tanked much worst.

If you’re strong enough, maybe you’ll break the bat. cap won’t even have a mark to show for it though

Yep he tanks it. Ultron punches Cap in the head and Cap keeps fighting like nothing happened. Iron Man's punches and Bucky's punches do more damage than a bat swung by an athlete and it takes multiple direct punches from them to visibly slow Cap down. Crossbones also does more knockback than any normal human with a bat can do, and Cap to unbraced hits from him and got up, fought, and turned the fight around. Cap's not getting knocked out here from a single hit, not even close.

He's absolutely not no-selling it... like he would obviously be staggered by it, it's not like he's Luke Cage lol, but I don't see why it would do any significant damage if it was just some average mook swinging it. As others have pointed out he has taken worse blows to the head before.

@symbiosis89: he is not going to feel anything. Give some feats of him being hurted by a normal human or leave this thread. Cap survived a Punch from thanos. A normal bat aint doing shit.even CW Arrow or DCEU Batmabwhich durability is inferior to cap would tank this hit

@symbiosis89: where did you post it?. And like i said. Cap has plenty of feats which give him superhuman durablity.and he fought against Suoerhuman threat level (Ultron, Loki, Outriders, Bucky, Crossbones, BP, spiderman and. Iron man

@symbiosis89: Crossbones was in a robot suit giving him superstrength and Cap went h2h with Iron Man and Ultron, he has superhuman strength and durability which is leagues above Arrow or Batman that's a ridiculous claim.

Do you really think Arrow or Batman could hurt Iron Man or Ultron with punches or be able to withstand their punches and if you say yes you're either trolling or just have a delusional view of things.

@thorthunder98: I don’t understand how it’s so crazy I believe a full swing of a bat can hurt him. You can literally kill a normal human with one swing of those. He isn’t no selling it

@symbiosis89: I don't think he'd no sell it but it's not hurting him it would knock him back a bit probably but he's not hurt, Bucky's metal arm didn't kill him which has punched through concrete (something a human with a bat wouldn't be able to do) and he tanked punches from Iron Man and Ultron.

Saying he's only a bit above Arrow or Batman is ridiculous they are peak human, Cap is Superhuman there is a very clear difference.

@symbiosis89: so? A normal punch from bucky would kill and smashed a normal human skull. And cap survived 6 of that punches in a row with only some bleeding. Cap durability is way above normal human durability

Sure. I don't think there is a widely agreed upon definition for those types of terms, like "tanking" and "no selling" so I just described what would happen and people can interpret it however.

It's making his lips bleed a little, at best.

He's not no-selling it but he's surely tanking it.

@jayc1324:

Generally AFAIK, tanking something means you take the blow, feel it but aren't in danger. No selling is borderline or outright not feeling something.

People are misusing the term "tank" a bit here. Tanks can feel pain, receive some damage, and occasionally stagger. It has to do with whether or not they take real damage, are capable of still fighting, or fighting on despite damage. MCU Punisher is a great example of a character who gets hurt, receives tons of damage, and still keeps coming.

The answer is obvious. A baseball bat isn't KO'ing Cap, isn't severely damaging him, and will stagger him at best. He likely won't receive visible injuries or feel much pain. He will feel it, and isn't going to Superman his way through the hit as if it were a rolled up piece of paper. But it won't hurt him. Even if he were hit by a stronger opponent, it's more likely that the baseball bat will break.

He took full on blows to the face from a very durable object: Bucky's arm. Those blows have no yield to them. His arm won't break or bend to the blow.

No Caption Provided

This is after a lengthy fight and after Steve took several bullets to the back. He was already weak moments earlier. He was going to be out of commission for awhile regardless. I'm not saying that those blows didn't do damage to Steve, but people are really underestimating him if they think this was the only reason he was in the hospital.

Poeple seem to be seriously underestimating what a baseball bat to the head can do. There is absolutely no way he is not feeling it. He will feel it, it will hurt a bit, but no lasting damage.

@juiceboks: Crossbones head butted him and managed to stun him long enough to back him against a wall.

Crossbones was wearing a strength augmenting suit with a helmet that allowed him to tank multiple hits from Steve, making it much more durable than a wooden bat. There was also more that happened after the headbutt that put Steve in a position against the wall, not sure how this example fits your point.

The batter exerts some 6000-8000 pounds of force on the ball. This force is required to change a 5 1/8th-ounce ball from a speed of 90 mph to a speed of 110 mph, this distorts the baseball to half its original diameter and the bat is compressed one fiftieth of it's size.... He IS feeling it.

Unless someone really strong is swinging it, then yes, he tanks it.
