Thinking quickly, Cap sends a few monsters back through the portal with an impromptu flamethrower. But before a wolf escapes the flames to maul him, the utterly massive Frost Giant grabs it and stands up from the portal.
|"Hey, everybody just chill."|
Bucky suggests that this might be a good time to leave, but Cap is adamant that this ends now. They both take off after the Red Skull, who enters his escape rocket.
Captain America: "Bucky, stay here! Secure the fortress!"
What, the exploding one? I think the rocket's a safer bet, Cap. So does Bucky, because he follows Cap into hitching a ride on the outside of the rocket.
Bucky: "I've got your back, Cap!"
Captain America: "Bucky! I told you to..."
Bucky: "Yeah, I know! But we're partners, right?!"
Captain America: "...let's finish this."
|"C'mon, civilian! Let's go beat up a war criminal!"|
Bucky: "Sorry, Cap!"
Captain America: "Stow that talk; we'll make it!"
Bucky: "No, I mean... sorry the world needs Captain America more than Bucky!"
With his other leg, he kicks Captain America off the missile. With one last salute to his idol, the missile explodes, and the shockwave sends Cap down into the Kirby Dot-filled ocean, with ice slowly forming over his shield as he sinks to the bottom. We cut to the future guy from earlier finishing up his newsreel, which ends with a salute to the fallen Captain America.
Anouncer: "Farewell, Captain America, wherever you are!"
Future Guy: "No. Not 'where.' 'When.'"
Who's not where? Wait, when, but not where? Why not where? Why when? What where? Third base!
To be continued.
