Synopsis for "The Tiger and the Swine"

Steve awakens in a plane flying over the Rio De Muerte. He breaks free and battles his kidnappers, but the pilot is killed during the melee and the plane crashes in the jungle. Steve emerges from the wreckage and becomes Captain America, only wanting to find a way home. In New York, Sam and Leila find Sharon recovering from the tranquilizer gas in her apartment. Sam fears Cap has been kidnapped. In the jungle, prison guards find Cap but he dispenses with them and finds himself confronting the Swine. Meanwhile, after taking Sharon to the hospital, Sam and Leila check in with S.H.I.E.L.D. The Swine shoots at Cap who deflects the bullet with his shield and hangs the Swine up in a tree. Falcon flies along the coastline searching for Cap who wanders through the jungle until stumbling on a prison work detail. Seeking food, Cap attacks and defeats the guards, discovering that the inmates are so spiritless, they are in an almost zombie state. At the prison, the Swine tortures the prisoners who spoke of his humiliation at Cap's hands. Donna Maria revels in Cap's successes, telling her cousin, "I hope he breaks you, Swine!"
