If This Be Doomsday! is the 16th micro episode of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
The creatures of Norse myth are unleashed, and neither HYDRA nor Captain America and Bucky are safe. Bucky fights (and wise-cracks to) Von Strucker. Captain America fights a Fenris Wolf, a Norse troll, and other beasties. Together, Captain America and Bucky defeat the Hydra goons and close the portal to the Norse world. The Red Skull attempts to escape in a rocket, but Captain America and Bucky are following, climbing the rocket's fusilage. The Red Skull ejects, and the countdown to the explosion of the rocket is on... as it ticks down, Captain America tries to free a caught Bucky, but Bucky throws him off, shouting that the world needs Captain America. The rocket explodes, seemingly killing Bucky. Captain America falls into the frozen waters of the Arctic, where he is frozen. A newsreel shows the national mourning and tribute statue.
