In an abandoned barbershop in New York City, Winter Soldier and Wolverine discuss the shooting of Captain America. Wolverine doesn't believe it's true but Winter Soldier says he was there and saw it. Wolverine says that perhaps they wanted him there to witness it. Wolverine mentions that this isn't the first time the world believed Cap was dead. Winter Soldier finally figures out why Wolverine wanted to meet with him. He wants Bucky to go with him to identify the body. Winter Soldier says no because he has his own agenda.
Next Wolverine seeks out Daredevil. He tells him that his heightened senses can help identify Cap. When Daredevil asks how he plans on avoiding getting arrested, Wolverine says he's "got a guy."
10,000 feet above New York City on a S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier, Wolverine and Daredevil stand aside as Tony Stark and Maria Hill walk right by him. No one can see or hear them. It was Dr. Strange that allowed them to get on undetected with magic. They only have ten minutes. It turns out that Wolverine wants to talk to Crossbones instead of seeing Cap. He wants Daredevil to be his lie detector when he questions him.
In Crossbones' cell, Wolverine puts down a gun he took from a guard. Crossbones is the only one that can see and hear them. When asked if he shot Captain America, he tells them, yeah but he didn't get the kill shot. He's asked if he believes Cap is dead and Crossbones says he better be. When Wolverine asks who hired him to kill Cap, he says he doesn't remember. It seems his memory's been blocked. Wolverine taunts Crossbones into picking up the gun and shooting him. Once he does, he can attack him. He tells him he has three seconds to tell him who shot Cap and places his fist against his neck. The two outer claws are popped out. Daredevil convinces Wolverine that he doesn't know anything. Wolverine punches Crossbones out.
As their time is almost up, Wolverine tells Daredevil that he has something else to do. Down below, he opens a sealed coffin covered in an American flag. Behind him, he hears the electronic voice of Iron Man tell him, "It's him," as he looks over Steve Rogers' body. Wolverine asks Iron Man where is Cap's shield. He asks if he's going to make it that Captain America lives on while Steve is dead. Tony says that Steve was his best friend.
Wolverine turns to leave. Hank Pym puts down a giant hand and asks Wolverine if he thinks he's just going to walk out of there. Wolverine says they are going to let him walk out and give him transport too. Hank asks him if he thinks he can take on him, Iron Man, and all of S.H.I.E.L.D. Wolverine says "yep" but the reason Tony is going to let him go is to tell anyone who has hope that Steve is still alive that he isn't. He also tells Stark that if he finds out he had anything to do with Cap's death, he's going to kill him.
