Synopsis for "America Lost Part IV of IV"
In the present, the heroes gathered for what is presumably Captain America's funeral recap recent events, up to the revelation that the Hate-Monger was revealed to be working alongside the Red Skull. Three days earlier, Cap, Namor, Fury, and Sharon Carter are aboard a stolen SHIELD helicarrier and at the mercy of the Red Skull and Hate-Monger. Hate-Monger is now more powerful than ever, thanks to a new version of the Cosmic Cube which he and the Skull have created. He plans to use the equipment from SHIELD psi-division to link together and amplify the hatred of the people whom the villains have recently captured and brainwashed.
The Red Skull and Hate-Monger release Cap and try to draw out the hatred they believe lurks within him, but his love for America and innate will allows him to power through the psychic assault, and he grabs the Skull by the neck. After a failed attack against the Hate-Monger, Namor succumbs to the hate and attacks Captain America as an enemy. After exchanging blows, Cap is able to talk him down and his words also penetrate the brainwashing of the citizens aboard the helicarrier. When Hate-Monger tries to activate his new Hate-Ray, the feedback causes his own body to dissipate; Cap then easily dispatches the incredulous Red Skull.
Three days later, Cap himself finally arrives at the funeral, accompanied by Bucky’s sister, Rebecca Barnes. Cap talks about the sacrifice that Bucky made, and wishes to give him a proper funeral that he never received. He also commemorates the spot with a sculpture of Bucky by Alicia Masters, and Dum Dum Dugan gives Bucky a folded American flag in honor of him.
