Of these options Captain America is closest to "Lawful Good" but, as Civil War showed, when he believes a law to be wrong/immoral, he will ignore and/or oppose it. I'd describe Captain America as "Moral Good."

Neutral Good. Boosh.

Agreed, he has done this in the past, going as far as giving up the Captain America mantle on occasion.

This. He'll generally obey the laws but if they are wrong or unjust, he'll not hesitate to go against them for the greater good.

Moral good, since the law is not always right or moral.

He's Neutral Good although lots of modern writers write him OOC as Lawful Good.

I am sorry I just do not see him as Neutral Good, can you explain why you think he fits this category?

@spider11211: "A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them."

@joygirl: Based on that response I cannot agree with Cap being Neutral Good. He fits portions of this but he will also work against them for the greater good. This leads me to Moral Good.

Think panels places his position on the chart best.

That supports my Moral Good opinion
