The point is for the villains to trade who they fight to confuse the superheroes. The villains without archenemies spin a wheel while those with one choose from Ringmaster's hat. Red Skull and Batroc argue over who is Captain America's archenemy. The villains all end up fighting each other and are arrested, except for Xemnu.
