Synopsis for "The Burden of Dreams (Part 4)"
In the wake of Kronos Corporation re-shuffling their CEOs, causing oil prices to double and showing a clear link with the rising mortgage costs, people are protesting and rioting. Bucky, in his first mission as the new Captain America, dons his new costume for the first time. He and Black Widow head off to intercept A.I.M. and R.A.I.D., who are trying to capitalize on the chaos and steal Wall Street's gold reserve.
Aboard the Helicarrier over Washington D.C., Director Tony Stark argues with Washington's bureaucrats that Aleksander Lukin is not dead and that this whole crisis is an attack by Kronos Corporation and the Red Skull is behind the whole thing.
Down in the crowd, several S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, who'd went missing days ago, now show up in front of the White House, guarding the gates. They were previously captured and brainwashed by Doctor Faustus and now they execute his command; they open fire on the crowd of protesters.
