So, Who Would Win?: 616 Captain America VS. Ultimate Captain America

Happy Hump Day Bitches!!!!!

In honor of the upcoming Civil War movie being released this Friday, I've decided to dedicate this week's edition of So, Who Would Win? to the film's two main protagonists, Captain America and Iron Man. But with a twist.

Back before Marvel decided to merge and fold the Ultimate Universe into the main 616 MU, there existed two versions of popular Marvel characters.

History unfolded very similarly between the two versions except for a few minor changes and modifications here and there, especially tweaks/updating of their known outfits, and Captain America was no exception. I think in this area, people really underestimate just how influential the Ultimates were, especially in terms of visual since the mainstream MU has since adapted that look as has the movie-verse.

The slight changes made to the UU Cap was that he was more okay with killing and using firearms than the mainstream Cap was, he was super-humanly strong, being able to bend steel with his bare hands, whereas the mainstream Cap was only enhanced to peak human levels, not superhuman.
UU Cap also had a healing factor that allowed him to heal stab wounds, bullet wounds, and broken bones in mere days, where regular Cap doesn't have these healing abilities.

So really in essence, the UU Cap REALLY is the true, ultimate version of Cap out there.
Can the mainstream Cap hope to compete with a better version of himself?

Let me know who you think would be the lat Cap standing.
