The foundation walls shook again. Explosions could be heard all around the complex. It would not be long before this place was overrun by the Allied Forces. Captain America and Namor continued to hold their ground, blocking one of the exit paths trying to keep the remaining Hydra agents trapped on the upper level.
"Officer Larry! Load the Kapitan's sidekick into the Mandarin's escape pod." The Baron licked his lips. "We have a last piece of business."
The Baron pounced! Charging and slashing Namor again, then licking his claws and growing stronger.
Sounds of the battle above were now close and banging on the metal doors surrounding this complex intensified. Voices from soldiers yelled, "Captain America, Nick Fury! Are you in there?"
Namor's skin was on fire from the flames of the Mandarin’s Ring. He fought the pain and unleashed a furious combination of punches. Both landed on Baron Blood, but each time Namor's fist burned with pain. The Baron laughs, "Before coming over here I covered my entire suit in gun alcohol, go ahead and hit me if you want, but you will feel the pain also!"
"Maybe I was wrong to dismiss you out of hand, Atlantean." said the Baron, licking his lips. "You are a rare breed...a rare, vintage, if you will. And your blood should reflect that..."
“We must go, Baron, you have made you point, said the Mandarin as the troops threatened to blow the door.”
"True, Mandarin." said the Baron as he looked at the burned and dazed body of Namor and the fatigued body of Captain America down below. "Now that I have tasted Namor and have BUCKY as my own, I think I have made my point perfectly clear: Leave Hydra alone, or else!"
With that Larry, the Baron and Mandarin, all entered the back room and with a blast, the ship engines fired up and launched through the ground. Captain American, Namor and the other Allied forces gave chase and saw a long tunnel etched in stone that the ship was using to escape. As the soldiers started to rush forward, bombs went off causing the tunnel to cave in. Captain America fell to his knees and yelled “Bucky!!!!!!”…
Nick Fury put his hand on Captain America’s on the shoulder, “It wasn’t your fault. Bucky knew the risks as do all America Soldiers.” “We will try to track him down, but a great victory was won here today. The Soldiers who helped me told me that after Adolf Hitler heard the news that his secret base was now in ruins and that his SS troops were in retreat, he committed suicide in his personal bunker. What Bucky and every other Soldier has fought and died for will now come true. The war is at its end. I need you to be strong for all the other American Soldiers who gain strength from your leadership.
Captain America rose to his feet with american soldiers all around and said, “Today we have struck a blow against tyranny and evil everywhere. We will not be oppressed any longer. The world has risen up, and joined forces to stop this Evil and will always continue to do so. Many of us have lost friends and allies during this war, but now they will rejoice as a dictator has fallen, and America and its allies have won the day!” Nick Fury grabbed Captain America's and Namor's hands and held them high above their heads in victory. All of the Troops cheered. The three men who lead them to victory in this war!
Suddenly Clay Quartermain, and the rest of the SHIELD agents were back on their feet, apparently Tia Senyka had been rescued by the Howling Commandoes, as well as Toro and everyone left behind too. Tia had been busy patching wounds and giving stimulants to the injured.
Fury then looked at all his men! “Blow off some steam guys! You have all earned it. In two days, we march to Berlin!” The men went off outside to party and take the edge off.
As the last one left, Nick said “Captain America, Namor, and you SHIELD team members, into the room behind us.” Nick Fury laid out a small marble table and threw down the patch of one of the fallen Hydra warriors on the table. Gentlemen, we have a new enemy and its name is HYDRA”
Fury then looked at Clay Quartermain, “I think you and your team may be stuck with us soldier. So why don’t you guys help us out here, and start explaining some of your future technology. I will let you talk it over with your team, but don’t keep me waiting long.” With that Fury, Captain America and Namor left the room.
Clay was dead set against giving Fury technology when he first arrived, but now he and the rest of the team figured they might never get home. Beaulieu stepped forward “This Hydra already has some great technology, maybe we are supposed to give some to even the playing field”. More discussion went on back and forth between the SHIELD Agents. Finally, Clay said “Enough, we will put it to secret vote”. Tia happened to have some paper and pens in her duffle bag and ripped it into small pieces. Each SHIELD Agent took a piece and would write their vote “Yes or No “, then they would be collected and counted. Clay grabbed a Nazi helmet from the ground and said put them in here. The Vote was counted Clay said he would tell everyone when Fury was present. Clay opened the door and yelled to Nick “We have made our decision, please come in.” Clay sat back down and realized all of his other members were gone, now what happened he thought! Suddenly, he was back in the Baxter Building, and the older Nick Fury looking very relieved. He saw reed Richards standing by a machine tinkering with the time travel device. Richards said, “Glad your back, I locked on your anomolous chronotons and pulled you from the Past! Hope I didn't bring you back at an innopportune time.” Nick Fury looked at Clay sternly.
1945, back in the past, as the young Nick Fury entered the room to see what the SHIELD Agents had voted, all he found was a Nazi SS helmet, with small pieces of paper and words written on all of them. “YES”
