Following the Bombing of the Vienna International Centre, the main suspect for it was the Winter Soldier, the JCTC found Barnes in Bucharest and sent a task force to arrest him. However, right after they broke into his apartment, Barnes and Captain America fought against the police officers and tried to escape. Suddenly, Black Panther showed up and tried to kill Barnes. Falcon helped Rogers to take down a JCTC helicopter and the pursuit continued in the city's tunnels.
Barnes was keep avoiding JCTC operatives while T'Challa after him ran with full speed. Rogers took one of the JCTC cars and tried to keep up with them. As T'Challa stopped Barnes, War Machine came and helped the JCTC apprehending Rogers, Barnes, Wilson and T'Challa.
Steve Rogers, Sam Wilson and T'Challa were brought to the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre Building in an armed vehicle, while Bucky Barnes was brought to there inside a containment cell. In the building, the three met with Everett Ross and Sharon Carter. Ross told them they had to stay in the building and they were not allowed to leave. JCTC also confiscated, Captain America's Shield, his uniform and the EXO-7 Falcon.
In order to determine the mental condition of Barnes, the JCTC hired Theo Broussard to interrogate him. During the interrogate by the psychiatrist, a power outage occurred and Barnes freed himself. He attacked everyone who tried to stop him, but he overcame them. Tony Stark, Natasha Romanoff, Carter and T'Challa tried to stop him, only to fail. It was eventually Rogers who stopped Barnes and went into hiding with him and Wilson. After the escape, the JCTC sent helicopters to search for the fugitives. Thaddeus Ross came to the building and gave Stark 36 hours to bring in Rogers. Meanwhile, Carter smuggled out the confiscated gear and bought it to Rogers.
After the Battle at the HYDRA Siberian Facility, Black Panther stopped Helmut Zemo, the mastermind behind the Avengers Civil War, from committing suicide and turned him over to counter terrorist agent Everett Ross where he was held in a similar cell to the Winter Soldier. Ross taunted Zemo that his plans failed, Zemo responded with two words: "Did it?". Eventually, CIA pulled Ross out of the JCTC and tasked him to track down and arrest Ulysses Klaue.
