The punisher threw a jab right into Captain America's stomach. It was met with a counter, in which Cap smashed the edge of his shield down on Castles neck.
Frank smashed face first onto the deck of the ship.
His ears were ringing. His whole body was immediately sore. "Give up Frank. I promise we will spare your friends if you do." Rogers said, standing over him.
Frank looked around. It hadn't taken long for Cap's team to gain the upper hand. Deadpool lay unconscious at the hands of Black Widow.
Agent venom was in a headlock thanks to Falcon, who was poised to snap his neck.
And Bob had just been smashed through the deck into another floor of the ship by the Winter soldier. They had lost. It was time to face facts
"I.... I surrender." Castle said, hanging his head in shame. Cap smiled. "You've made the right choice Frank."
Meanwhile Bob was in a cruel amount of pain. He had landed in a cell block in the Helicarrier.
As he waited for the Winter Soldier to come kill him, he heard a whisper. "Psst. Hey you!"
He looked behind him, still lying on the ground in agony. A man in a white cloak and a skull mask sat in a cell nearby. "I can help you, you know. Just unlock my cell."
Bob thought about this. There was a reason Nick Fury had locked him up. Suddenly Bucky came crashing through the ceiling down the hall. Bob instantly reconsidered.
Picking the lock, he freed the mystery man. Bucky fired at them, and as Bob hit the deck, the captive rolled past the bullets to a shield and swords on the wall.
Grabbing the shield first, he deflected the next set of bullets.
The projectiles bounced off the shield and hit Bucky directly in his arm.
He grunted in pain and dropped his gun as the man leaped at him with the sword and cut one of the Winter Soldier legs off.
He screamed in pain, which was heard by those up on deck. "Falcon, go check that out!" Captain America commanded.
Falcon saluted, but as he flew over to the hole in the deck he was shot in the chin from inside the hole.
"SAM!" Captain America shouted. He looked at the handcuffed prisoners. Perhaps he and Natasha should deal with this personally. "Alright, whomever you are, show yourself." He said boldly
The man climbed out of the hole with Bob in tow.
"Tony Masters... Taskmaster." Captain said with a laugh. "I thought you were dead!" Taskmaster just glared. "You mean like Fury? Or like your pals Bucky and Sam?"
Now Steve was PISSED. "Natasha! Take out that foolish Hydra agent! Masters is MINE!" He barked.
Rogers and Taskmaster charged forward with their weapons. The two clashed as the battle of Shields begun.
