Synopsis for "The Centre Cannot Hold"Edit

As Captain America visits Dave Cox at the hospital, Baron Zemo and Mother Superior kidnap Arnie Roth. Later Steve meets Bernie and Jack Monroe after a movie, where Bernie notices that Steve looks older Steve receives a distressed call from Arnie Roth. Rushing to Arnie's apartment, they find a skull burned into the wall and a robot Arnie. The robot announces that Arnie is Red Skull's captive. Red Skull examines the recently deceased Horst as Cap and Nomad enter Skull-House. The Sisters of Sin attack Cap and Nomad, but the heroes are able to outmaneuver the villains. Spying Baron Zemo from afar, Cap savagely attacks only to discover he's actually a disguised Arnie. Horrified, walls are closing in until it is too late. Meanwhile, Starfox and Wasp ring Bernie's doorbell, unaware that Mother Superior is kidnapping her on the other side of the door.
