#4 – Fighting SHIELD and STRIKE Agents in the Elevator

From: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

We have SHIELD’s agents and STRIKE unit — the elite fighting force of SHIELD — armed with weapons about to apprehend Captain America in a crowded elevator. This is a totally uneven match … that favors Cap. Hydra loyalists should never underestimate the greatest patriot the world has ever known.

When a traitorous Alexander Pierce gets wind that Captain America may have been tipped off by Nick Fury before his assassination — supposedly — he sends his minions after him. One-by-one, they file into the elevator as Cap is trying to get to a lower floor. Cap’s smarts and intuition alert him that an attack is about to happen. Like a gentleman, as always, Cap asks if anybody wants to leave before things get rough.

The enemies quickly attack, thinking that a surprise move would help them subdue him. They get a temporary upper hand, but Cap is able to break free. In an amazing display of strength, agility, and speed, Cap defeats his attackers. His triumphant win is topped off with a quick flip of his shield back onto his arm.
