Synopsis for 1st story
In a pub, Steve Rogers is playing Eight-Ball with a girl he just met and who appears interested in him, as she makes sexual innuendos. Unfortunately, she turns out to be an accomplice of Kraven The Hunter's, as she poisons Cap with a venomous scratch, turning him unconscious and leaving him for her boss's schemes.
Steve wakes up in Kraven's mansion, with an electrified collar round his neck. Cap realizes who his enemy is, as he heard Spider-Man talking about him, and the foe explains to him what's going to happen: Cap will be left in the jungle below them and will have to find his way to the coast tagging along with a scared guy. Cap immediately jumps in the jungle and saves the other individual from a jaguar, killing the beast by throwing it in one of Kraven's deadly traps. The man presents himself as David Cotter, and the two keep walking as Kraven shoots at them. As they survive numerous traps, Cotter seems incapable of not activating Kraven's devices, causing Cap to start losing patience.
As they near the coast, Cotter tells Cap he felt a click under his foot, meaning he's walked on a pressure mine. Cap immediately plans a way to free him without exploding the mine, but it turns out it was all a scam by Cotter, another accomplice of Kraven's, to approach Cap unawares with a gun. Cap smells the gun oil, so he reacts in time and knocks Cotter out.
Behind them, Kraven appears, clapping at Cap's ability to survive all his traps. As promised, Kraven accepts to give Cap his shield and his freedom, the freedom of blissful unconsciousness. As he shoots Cap with a dart, the hero loses his balance and falls off the coastal cliff, to Kraven's despair: he was supposed to turn him in alive. Cap is actually still sentient, so he grabs Kraven's foot and menaces him to turn off the collar, unless he wants both of them to fall on the rocks below. Kraven refuses to help and be helped, so he activates the collar and they both fall down, with Cap surviving the impact by falling into water on his shield. Suddenly, from the sea a huge submarine filled with Rampart militiamen emerges: while they are underwhelmed by Kraven's performance, they activate a freezing cannon that imprisons Cap inside an ice-block and proceed to collect him on board.

HOME OF THE BRAVE PART Part 3
Kraven the Hunter has a new target – and it’s Steve Rogers! Trapped in unfamiliar territory, stripped of his shield and on the run, Cap must find a way to evade Kraven long enough to save an innocent life – but this time, that might be impossible! And just wait until you see the final page…
- Captain America being trapped into a block of ice is an obvious reference to his state when he was found by the Avengers.
