This is a situation where I'd probably All-Out-Attack (Double) over CA. Unless I'm Captain America-level of peak human performance, my dodge-2 with no retreat... well, I'd put more trust into another attack to make sure I don't need to try. Plus, if I have Move 5, I can walk from front center hex around to left flank and turn to face my opponent: or if I'm trying to get into CC, I'll need Move 7 to walk from front center to front left, front left to left flank, turn to the right and walk into CC.
