Meanwhile on the outside, Professor X uses his telepathic powers to guide their movements and keep them safe. However eventually Steve and Sam are exposed! And the mayhem begins! The Secret Empire sends two dozen of its agents to kill Cap and the Falcon! But then Cyclops and Marvel Girl enter the fray!
