    Rocket Being Mistaken For Any Animal Other Than A Raccoon

    Despite being a hardened criminal, master thief, and a spaceship captain, Rocket Raccoon gets no respect. He is the Rodney Dangerfield of the Guardians. Nebula calls him a fox, Thor calls him a rabbit, and Quill calls him a "trash panda."

    Cap Being The Old Man He Is

    One of the more adorable aspects of Steve Rogers is his genuine confusion in pop culture and technology. One of the funniest lines in The Avengers is when Cap understands a Wizard of Oz reference. It's also worth mentioning the only recent movie he's seen is Star Wars.

    Fighting Over Who's The Strongest

    It only makes sense The Avengers would argue who's the strongest. In the memorable after-party scene in Age of Ultron, Cap is seen struggling to lift Mjolnir. This comes full circle in Endgame, Cap might not actually be the strongest Avenger, but it's pretty impressive he can wield Mjolnir.
