Captain America has no real superhuman abilities.

Captain America has no superhuman powers, although as a result of the Super-Soldier Serum and "Vita-Ray" treatment, he is transformed from a frail young man into a "perfect" specimen of human development and conditioning. Captain America's strength, endurance, agility, speed, reflexes, durability, and healing are at the highest limits of natural human potential. Rogers' body regularly replenishes the super-soldier serum; it does not wear off.
Well he cannot get drunk.
According to Dr Erskine, he heals at 4x the rate of any normal human, which is pretty superhuman.

The movie shows him, among other things, grabbing full grown men, at least 200lbs with gear, and with one hand tossing them around like inflatable sex dolls. He pulls the bonds holding Bucky to the table apart like they are paper.

The movie has made a character that's a little below Spiderman in strength and a little below Wolverine in healing, but he's plenty superpowered.

I don't have a problem with that, but he's obviously got more than the stats from the Marvel Super Heroes RPG.
