Captain America resists joining the Kill-Derby contest until knocked unconscious by gas. One Kill-Derby gladiator takes Cap's shield while two others throw him in the brig with Falcon.

In the Badlands, the Hound-dog hovercraft reports a "bogie." Cap and Falcon join the Kill-Derby on motorized skateboards. Amid the ensuing mayhem of flame thrower and missile attacks. Falcon takes to the air but is felled by a net shot from a cable-snare rifle. Cap frees him then fights his way through the gladiators until caught in the "Stand-in's" explosion. Outside. General Fist and his men find the wrecked Hound-dog. The pilot is missing. On the Kill-Derby track, Cap recovers and, with Falcon's help, arrives at the man who stole his shield.
