SUMMARY (given by the author): “Nagel didn’t have it quite right, about the subjects in Siberia,” James muses, apropos of absolutely nothing at all while Zemo leads them to rendezvous with his young informant. “Howard’s serum worked just fine, exactly as Erskine advertised. Good becomes great, bad becomes worse, I think Steve put it.”

Sam glances sideways, not at James but at Zemo; he shrugs, does not follow the non sequitur. “So what went wrong?”

“The subjects themselves. Zealots, the most competent and ruthless killers HYDRA had. Gave ‘em the serum and got uncontrollable bloodlust.” He shrugs, fiddles with his gloves. “With Howard dead? That was it. Blew their shot because they were too goddamn arrogant and naïve to understand the kind of subject they actually needed.”

Zemo cocks a bemused brow. “An incompetent one?” he guesses, thinking about photographs of small and sickly Steve Rogers.

James eyes him dubiously, lip curled in derision. “An unwilling one,” he corrects, like it’s the most obvious thing in the world.
NOTES: Zemo's POV
