Synopsis for "The Ghosts of Greymoor Castle"
Memories of past adventures bring Captain America to England's Greymoor Castle. As Cap makes his way through the decrepit castle an armored figure attacks him, sending Cap into the reopened Z-Ray pit. Cap saves himself but lands hard, knocking himself out. The armored figure brings Cap to safety and reveals himself as Cedric Rawlings. Cedric believes ghosts of the past are haunting him in the castle, so Cap investigates some noises. When a stone gargoyle almost crushes him, Cap discovers the Druid is responsible. Druid reveals he is searching the castle for an arcane source of alchemical knowledge, and their battle leads back to the Z-Ray pit. Cedric saves Cap by knocking Druid into the pit, but he almost falls in as well. Cap saves Cedric and discovers the ancient texts Druid was looking for. Cedric tells Cap to take the books, and Cap considers having Scarlet Witch translate them.
