Synopsis for "The Origin of Captain America!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Tales of Suspense #63.

This story is a retelling of Captain America's origins. In the 1940's young Steve Rogers who was rejected from joining the military because of his frail body. However he is chosen for a top secret project to create the perfect soldier. Given a formula by Dr. Erskine his body is transformed into one of peak efficiency. After Steve Rogers is transformed however, Erskine is killed by a Nazi spy, who in turn is killed by Rogers. Erskine's secret formula would die with him, however Steve Rogers would become Captain America.

The tale would gloss over how Captain America would bust up Nazi spy rings as Captain America, but in his civilian guise he'd pretend to be a bumbling soldier under the command of Sergeant Duffy, and the mentor for his units mascot Bucky Barnes.

Bucky would one night stumble upon Steve changing into Captain America and would convince him to join him in combat as his sidekick, Bucky. Their first mission together would be to break up some Nazi's sneaking into the country and using their own explosives to destroy the submarine they arrived in.

This story is a reprint of the comic
Tales of Suspense #69.

In a laboratory inside Greymoore Castle, the bitter Dr. Rawlings has been hired by the Nazis to construct a device which would shrink Captain America and his partner Bucky down to microscopic size. Having shown his Nazi employers the success of his invention by testing it on dummies of the two heroes, the Nazi's are pleased. Chastised by his sister for helping out the enemy, the doctor reveals that the reason why he has decided to work for the Nazis is for revenge on the world over the loss of his hand, and the opportunities that passed him by because of his loss of limb.

Elsewhere in Britain, Sgt. Duffy's US military force is stationed and preparing for operations against Nazi opposition on British soil. Among the troop are Steve (Captain America) Rogers and Bucky Barnes. While Steve is on a mission in his civilian guise, their base is attacked by the Nazis, prompting Bucky to change into his costumed guise, however he is captured in combat, and taken to Dr. Rawling's castle.

Elsewhere, Steve's unit is attempting to occupy Nazi-occupied France, and Steve stumbles upon a communications from the Nazis informing the Red Skull that they had captured Bucky and transported him to Greymoore Castle for "disposal". Changing into Captain America, Steve races back to Britain, stealing a lift aboard a Nazi fighter plane. As he races to Greymoore Castle, Rawlings prepares to bathe Bucky in the Z-Ray experiment, ignoring his sister's warnings that the Nazis will eventually betray him.
