    At the New Avengers Facility, Steve and the Avengers team find Tony and Secretary of State, who is now Thaddeus Ross, waiting for them. Ross explains that, due to the events in Lagos, the United Nations has decided they can no longer be allowed to operate privately. To that end, it has been decided that the Avengers will sign the "Sokovia Accords", which will establish an international governing body to control the Avengers' movements as well as monitor and police the rapidly growing number of superhumans. The team is divided over the act. Tony supports government oversight because he feels guilty for his role in creating Ultron, whereas Steve worries that the Avengers may be compromised if it comes under the control of a third party after the infiltration of S.H.I.E.L.D. by HYDRA. Ross states that refusing to sign the accords will be seen as an act of resignation. Elsewhere retired HYDRA general Vasily Karpov is ambushed by Helmut Zemo, who asks for information regarding the 1991 mission. Karpov refuses, forcing Zemo to kill him. During their debate about the Accords, Steve learns that Peggy Carter has passed away in her sleep and leaves for her funeral in London. While there, he learns Sharon Carter was Peggy's niece as she delivers a eulogy about how one should never back down from what they believe in. This solidifies Roger's resolve not to sign the accords. Wanda finds herself confined to the New Avengers Facility by Vision, ostensibly for her safety since feelings are running high after what happened in Lagos.

The two are confronted by Natasha, but she can't bring herself to take them down and allows them to leave in Stark's Quinjet, while the rest of their team are captured. As Stark and Rhodey chase the jet, Vision attempts to blast it out of the sky but misses and hits Rhodes who plummets to the ground and is left paralyzed.
