Synopsis for "Fighting Chance, Book 1: Super Patriot Games"

Captain America has been experiencing unusual fatigue, and according to the medical prognosis his super-soldier serum is turning against him. Doctor Kincaid tells him that his continued level of physical activity will result in total paralysis in about a year, facing Steve with the choice of either retiring from superheroing immediately, or operating for one more year at a severe risk to himself.

Meanwhile, a new Super-Patriot has teamed up with a man with the power to mimic dead supervillains in a plot to smear Captain America. First they stage a reckless battle between "Cap" and "Porcupine" in a public place and then when the real Captain America attempts to clear himself at a press conference at Avengers Mansion, they have "Mirage" trick Cap into attacking the crowd with illusions so Super-Patriot can step in to save the day. Though the Avengers can figure out what's happening, both of their enemies escape before they can secure any proof. With both his health and reputation facing unprecedented threats, Steve wonders if he's getting into a battle he can win.
