Captain America, Sharon Carter, Moon Knight, and Black Widow go undercover in the East European city of Symkaria to uncover the source of what they believe to be the black market sale of Super Soldier Serum to the Shadow Council. What they uncover, however, is far more interesting.

Okay Doctor Who fans stop what you’re doing for next 13 minutes or so and take a gander at River Song’s story presented chronologically from her point of view (with narration by Alex Kingston). Pretty cool.
