Synopsis for "Mother Wong"
In China, Steve Rogers and James Barnes are deployed along with other American troops to help the Chinese defend their country from invasion from Japan. As their convoy passes through a mountain range they are attacked by Japanese agents that are led by the mysterious Mother Wong. Narrowly escaping the surprise attack, Steve and James learn that Mother Wong is supposedly 120 years old and betrayed her fellow Chinese to join the Imperial Japanese army and that her forces are hidden deep in the jungles of Burma.
Steve and James decide to hunt for the hidden base as Captain America and Bucky. Searching the jungles they find a hut owned by a native and convince him to lead them to Mother Wong's camp. However, Mother Wong and her minions learn of Captain America's approach and she sets a trap for them. With their guide shot down by snipers, the two heroes dive into a nearby river for cover. With some quick thinking, Bucky and Cap manage to sneak through the jungle around their attackers and wipe them out before continuing on their quest.
When they attempt to cross a rope bridge, Mother Wong's forces cut the bridge loose but the two heroes pass through a waterfall and land on a hidden ledge that leads into an underground cavern. They follow the cavern and it leads them to Mother Wong's camp. There Cap and Bucky begin fighting their way through the Japanese forces until Bucky is grabbed by one of Mother Wong's men who threatens to cut the boys throat if Captain America does not surrender.
The two heroes are brought before Mother Wong who tells them that they are going to be put to death. She brings them before the Japanese soldiers that are in command of the unit she is assisting and they demand that the two heroes are killed immediately. Mother Wong refuses to do so, telling them that she will kill them in a way that she sees fit. She takes them into a lower chamber where Cap and Bucky break loose and attempt to fight their way to freedom. They are stopped by Mother Wong herself who reveals that she is really a spy for the Chinese.
When one of the Japanese soldiers hears this he leads his minions to attack Mother Wong and the two Americans. They fight through the army and get to cover. There Mother Wong tells them that she has rigged the base with mine and set it to explode in minutes. She hands them a map showing the Japanese offensive in the region and tells the two heroes to go. The pair fight their way through, leading Mother Wong and her loyal followers through the Japanese forces to safety when the bomb goes off killing all the Japanese in the area. Mother Wong, her cover maintained, then bids the two heroes farewell as she goes to return to the Japanese and continue her spying.
