Synopsis for "Their Darkest Hour"Edit
In Asgard, the Enchantress and the Executioner are banished to Earth by Odin. There they find Zemo (who had managed to escape the authorities) and they team up with him to stop Captain America. The Enchantress' motive is to get Thor by her side. She successfully lures Thor and hypnotizes him to fight for them. Meanwhile Captain America travels to the Amazon jungle to capture Zemo.
Captain America then wins against Zemo's forces and Zemo tries to escape. Captain America grabs onto to the escape ship, however. The other Avengers fight Thor and, thanks to Iron Man, bring him back to his senses. Zemo's ship flies to the Avengers battle to rescue the Executioner and the Enchantress. Captain America is defeated by the Executioner and they escape.
