Synopsis for "Am I Still Captain America?"Edit
Desperate to prove he's more than what the Super Soldier serum made him, Captain America faces off against Impact 739, a SHIELD training robot. Before Fury can pull the plug, an agent is suddenly transformed into Red Skull and blasts the controls, deactivating the robot's security protocols. In his weakened form, Cap barely manages to keep ahead of Impact 739. Fury tries to save Cap, but the robot destroys the room's controls from within. In orbit, Red Skull's satellite continues to fire its ray, quickly turning all the SHIELD agents onboard the Helicarrier into Red Skulls. Fury is shocked when Dum Dum becomes a Red Skull, who quickly defeats Fury. Impact 739 overpowers and captures Cap, but as the robot electrocutes him Cap's anger and adrenaline reactivate the Super Soldier serum within him. Cap defeats the robot, just as an army of Red Skulls enter with an unconscious Nick Fury as their prisoner.
