Synopsis for "Scream the Scarlet Skull"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Captain America #185

Captain America is dreaming about his old enemies and wakes up in a cold sweat and realizes that the Red Skull is back. He recalls the incidents of last issue and wonders how the Skull killed that man inside the locked room.

Red Skull is happy that his enemy is in disarray but there is only one thing that upsets him: Gabe Jones and Peggy Carter together. He plans to crush the two lovers and believes that without the Fuhrer's guidance the world has started to decay. He then tells Henzel about how he escaped the last time he confronted Cap in Captain America #168. He hung on to a wire and swung underneath the Sleeper's torso and out of sight. He hung there till Cap fled and then escaped. He then started to make new plans and deduced that he needed to spread terror. Ergo he devised the Dust of Death. He kills Henzel with the Dust for the crime of questioning him.

Cap, Falcon, Gabe and Peggy meet Oscar Brenner at his house and tell him he is the Skull's next victim. Brenner does not believe this but Cap convinces him that the Skull is the most dangerous foe he has ever faced. Falcon asks him to calm down and correctly deduces that he is angry about Roscoe. Peggy and Gabe are also worried about him. Suddenly, the Skull's forces attack Brenner's home. Cap and Falcon easily defeat them but Gabe and Peggy don't fare so well and are abducted. The abducters fly away with jetpacks and Falcon trails them but he wasn't fast enough.

Cap thinks Gabe and Peggy were the only targets but Brenner smokes his pipe and dies. The pipe was switched in the confusion and it contained the Dust of Death. The Grandfather clock starts playing Chopin's funeral march.

Meanwhile, Peggy and Gabe are being tortured by the Skull. Gabe spits at the Skull and he orders his troops to prepare the torments. Back at Brenner's house, Cap and Falc are being questioned by the police. Frustrated by all the red tape, Cap decides to leave to find the Skull.

In the morning, Cap is called to meet someone in a limo. Cap meets Hugh Jones, president of Roxxon Oil. He thanks him for saving him from the Serpent Squad. But Cap is confused because he was Nomad then and the public have no idea Nomad and Cap are the same person. He tells him he has sources and that the Red Skull is in the old Sosthenes building on Eye St.

Red Skull is astonished that Gabe and Peggy have survived 7 hours of torture. He tells Peggy that he can continue this for 7 days but Peggy spits in his face again. At that moment, Cap and Falcon enter. They defeat his personal guards and he corners the Skull. He orders Falcon to hit Cap and he does so. He then reveals that the Falcon is his own creation.

Synopsis for "American Dreamers: Part 1"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Captain America (Vol. 6) #1

Steve Rogers, Sharon Carter, Nick Fury and Dum Dum Dugan have come to Paris to attend the funeral of Sharon's aunt, Peggy Carter, but while they are reminiscing, somebody starting shooting at them. Rogers pursues the assailant and discovers that the would-be assassin is someone he once knew from 1944, telling Fury: "I think Jimmy Jankovicz has woken up...."

In a flashback to Paris in 1944, the assailant – Codename: Bravo – Dum Dum, Peggy, Fury and Rogers are secretly discussing sighting of Baron Heinrich Zemo hanging around a group called Hydra and developing new weapons for the Nazis to use in the War. Therefore, they decide to launch a two-pronged attack on the enemy base. And their ace-in-the-hole is Jimmy Jankovicz, also known as Jimmy Jupiter.

In the present, at a top secret government facility in Viginia, Fury, Rogers and Carter learn from a doctor that Jankovicz woke up from a coma six months ago, though he remains catatonic. They all then discuss why Bravo has returned, and Carter suggests that Bravo hasn't made contact "because he hates [her]."

In 1944, Bravo – named Richard – and Peggy are kissing but the latter breaks it off. Bravo figures that she's still fallen for Rogers because he's a supersoldier, then spots the two kissing moments later.

In the present, as they leaving the facility, before Fury can fully explain about Bravo, they are attacked by what appears to be a hit squad wearing modified Hydra suits. Luckily, Rogers had the shield on his back, which protected him, before he starts throwing the shield and knocking out all the assailants. He then tackles Sharon out of the way before a car runs her over. And in the back of the car is Jimmy. Fury then realizes that this was all a set-up, to allow the enemy to locate Jimmy. Sharon asks Rogers why Bravo would be working with Hydra and if something really went wrong on their mission.

Elsewhere, Bravo calls his men to take Jimmy to a safe house. He then walks in a house to talk with Helmut Zemo to plot revenge against Captain America.

Synopsis for "American Dreamers: Part 2"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Captain America (Vol. 6) #2

In what appears to be a dream, Captain America is crossing a snowy wasteland before a bi-rotor copter hovers over him.

In reality, Nick Fury, Dum Dum Dugan and Cap explain to Sharon Carter about Jimmy Jupiter. He was a boy who could enter the Land of Nowhere, another dimension where he could shape anything with his imagination to bring back into the real world. He was found out when he brought a two-headed cat to school and selected to help the Allies infiltrate a Hydra base. Their advantage was that in Nowhere, Jimmy could hone in on other people's dreams, such as a few Hydra agents so that his Nowhere portals could lead Codename: Bravo to them. While Cap, Peggy Carter and Bucky were assaulting the front of the Baron Zemo's fortress, Jimmy was to bring Dugan and Bravo in through Nowhere. However, a Hydra mole in the French Resistance smashed Jimmy on the head, sending him into a coma and sealing the portal with Bravo, his team, and the Hydra agents inside it for decades. Since time passes differently, the people trapped in Nowhere haven't aged.

As of present, intelligence has tracked Bravo and his team to an A.I.M. base they've ransacked and they've spotted the heroes' plane. Cap leaps out and lands hard on the ground, going in solo through the base before the other ex-S.H.I.E.L.D. agents join him. Cap smashes his way in and knocks out a Hydra goon named Brently, but is unable to stop the Hydra Queen from stepping through a portal he was guarding. Cap and Fury realize that their quarry must have access to teleport technology from Nowhere that's beyond A.I.M.'s capabilities. Even more strangely, as Sharon notes, most of the Hydra goons wear the regular uniform, implying that some deal was being made.

As night falls, Cap can't seem to go to sleep. Sharon reassures him that Fury promised to call them if anything came up. Cap tells her that it's bugging him that Bravo has access to high technologies but strangely wants Jimmy. Reluctantly, he agrees to go to sleep.

Suddenly, Sharon experiences a lucid dream, in which Bravo is influencing it, made the dreamscape apocalyptic, up until he kisses her. Sharon breaks it off, guessing that all this can't be her dream. Remarking that she doesn't just look like her aunt, Bravo promises to see her soon.

Just as Sharon wakes up and Cap is dressed up, a large handed grabs the latter through the window. The owner is in fact Ameridroid, who accuses Cap of stealing his dream.

Synopsis for "If a Hostage Should Die!"

Reprint of the 2nd story from
Tales of Suspense #77

While watching a documentary of his aid in liberating Nazi occupied France in World War 2, some of the footage causes Cap to think about the mysterious woman whom he had loved back then.

Recalling back to his time in Nazi occupied France, Captain America was battling Nazis when he met the girl as she was leading a band of French resistance fighters.

Having to part on their separate missions, the girl and her resistance fighters get captured by the Nazis, something that Cap finds out while fighting a different battle and rushes to her aid. There, he is told he was too late to save her, and single handedly defeats the Nazis in the camp. When victorious, it becomes apparent that Captain America helped free France from Nazi control and is carried off by the victors as a hero, even though he is trying to break away to search for the girl, little knowing that she is watching the whole spectacle. Unfortunately, the shell blast made her lose her memory so she walks off into the shadows.

Finishing his recollection, Cap laments over the fact that he never learned the true fate of his mysterious blond romance.
