Synopsis for "The Hard Sell"

The Serpent Society breaks into the morgue and steals MODOK's body. They return it to AIM's regional headquarters in exchange for their assassination fee. They encounter Alex Gentry, who is trying to sell his Porcupine armor. Cobra gives him the Serpent Society's business card.

Sidewinder electric shocks Princess Python to punish her for running away from the team. He meets with the other members in the briefing room to divide the assassination fee. Sidewinder is interrupted by a phone call from Gentry, but hangs up on him.

Gentry calls Captain American next. Cap offers to buy the Porcupine armor if Gentry will help set a trap for the Serpent Society. Gentry calls Sidewinder again saying he has captured Cap, and arranges a meeting at a construction site. Cottonmouth, Death Adder, Diamondback, and Rattler arrive to find Cap wrapped in chains. However, Cap breaks free and fights them. Porcupine tries to run away and briefly fights Diamondback. He ends up tripping and landing on one of his quills. He is stabbed the heart and dies.

At the local jail, Cap tries to keep in eye on the arrested Serpent Society members. Sidewinder teleports in and tells Cap that he can free them at any time.

In Avengers Mansion, Gentry's armor is displayed in a memorial case.

Solicit Synopsis

Cap is trapped by the Porcupine! At least that's what the Serpent Society thinks, because that's what the Porcupine wants them to know! If the Porcupine succeeds, his life of crime is over! If he fails ...
