|“||So, how does it feel? To spend all that time, all that effort and to see it fail so spectacularly?||„|
|~ Ross to Helmut Zemo.|
Following the bombing of the United Nations, the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre had a task force searching for the alleged culprit, Bucky Barnes (aka the Winter Soldier). They had him tracked down to his apartment in Romania, and would've been able to arrest him there, if not for the intervention of Captain America, the Falcon, and the Black Panther. After a chase through the streets, the task force was able to bring them all into custody, with the help of Colonel James Rhodes, in the War Machine Armor.
At their headquarters in Germany, Everett Ross greeted Captain Rogers, Sam Wilson, and King T'Challa to inform them that the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre would be confiscating their equipment and keeping them confined within the base for they were in violation of the Sokovia Accords. At the base were the CIA liaison Sharon Carter and government-appointed Avengers such as Tony Stark and Natasha Romanoff.
Ross watched a psychiatrist interrogate the Winter Soldier over security feed, but suddenly, an EMP went off and shut down main power to the headquarters. This sent the base into a panic, as the Winter Soldier was also able to escape. Carter, T'Challa, and the rest of the Avengers did their best to keep the Winter Soldier from escaping the base, but Captain Rogers helped him escape anyway.
A couple of days later, the real culprit behind the United Nations bombing and the Winter Soldier's escape from the base was revealed to be Colonel Helmut Zemo, the man posing as the Winter Soldier's psychiatrist. Ross had him locked up in a way that if he tried escaping, he'd be electrocuted. Ross asked Zemo how it felt to see his plan to destroy the Avengers fail, and Zemo asked him in return, "did it?"
