Synopsis for "Cold Fire!"

Mister Hyde chains Captain America to the bow of the oil tanker, then plans on using it as a nuclear torpedo that will destroy all of New York City. Batroc, wanting no part in Hyde's mass murder scheme, surreptitiously loosens the chains binding Captain America, allowing him the ability to break free. Batroc returns to the wheelhouse of the ship and attacks Mister Hyde. Hyde suspected that Batroc might betray him and prepares to snap his spine. Captain America boards the boat and slings his shield at Hyde. Batroc and Captain America then double-team Mister Hyde, driving him towards the back of the ship. Mister Hyde rips free a gas main, which coats him with natural gas that instantly freezes over him. He then topples off the side of the ship seemingly to his doom. Captain America dives into the water to rescue him, while Batroc makes his escape on a tug boat. Captain America fails to find any trace of Mister Hyde, but manages to use Hyde's mini-sub to catch up to Batroc's boat. He radios the Coast Guard, who surround Batroc, forcing him to surrender.
