I don't get why cap needs a mask or helmet or whatever
I think it just part of him being a soldier and kind of a homage to his old costumes? I mean in the end these guys are based on comic books and some logic has to be thrown out the window. It is still considered a half mask/helmet I guess instead of just a helmet.
If we really examine it though Cap is still only human though and he can suffer major trauma and he is usually in the frontline of battles. You can argue putting a helmet on Hawkeye might make him less accurate and since he is usually in a distance, he is safer than Cap. Can't really explain BW w/o a helmet, I guess she is mostly a spy anyways though you see her battle in the frontline but you can kind of see how she differs from Cap in WS, she sneaks in building and disguises herself instead of charging in battle like Cap.
Thor doesn't really need the helmet, he can take any blows to the head without a problem though he does have the coolest helmet and I'd really like to see him fight with it on.
