Synopsis for "Captain America"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Tales of Suspense #59.

Alone on monitor duty at Avengers Mansion, Captain America dismisses Jarvis the butler for the night so he can spend a quiet evening reminiscing over a scrapbook of World War 2 photos. However, Jarvis is abducted by thugs who are employed by a criminal named Bull. Bull has learned that Captain America is the only Avenger at the mansion, and he plans to break in and steal the mansion's many devices and secrets.

Leading an army of thugs with advanced weaponry, Bull and his cohorts attack Captain America, believing that he will make an easy target, since he has no super powers. Interrupted from his reminiscence (and mourning the loss of his World War 2 partner, Bucky) Cap easily makes short work of Bull and his men and turns them over to police.

Quote1 Take it easy with that gun, fella! If you stole it from the weapons room, it's government property! You're wasting the taxpayer's bullets! Quote2
--Captain America

Putting on a demonstration of his acrobatic abilities for the warden of a prison, Captain America soon finds out that it's all a trap and that the warden and his staff have actually been locked up in cell block 10 and the inmates have taken their place. Stealing Captain America's shield and locking him up with the warden, Captain America breaks out of his cell and fights off the prisoners who are trying to use it to open the magnetically sealed front gate of the prison.

Defeating the break-outs leader, Cap takes back his shield and the warden and his guards take back control of the prison. Later Captain America explains that the crooks were probably trying to use his shield to open the door because it once had magnetic devices built into it they figured might be able to open the door, but that these devices he had recently removed them from his shield. Asking what the code word to open the door was, he's told "Captain America."

Synopsis for "The Origin of Captain America!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Tales of Suspense #63.

This story is a retelling of Captain America's origins. In the 1940's young Steve Rogers who was rejected from joining the military because of his frail body. However he is chosen for a top secret project to create the perfect soldier. Given a formula by Dr. Erskine his body is transformed into one of peak efficiency. After Steve Rogers is transformed however, Erskine is killed by a Nazi spy, who in turn is killed by Rogers. Erskine's secret formula would die with him, however Steve Rogers would become Captain America.

The tale would gloss over how Captain America would bust up Nazi spy rings as Captain America, but in his civilian guise he'd pretend to be a bumbling soldier under the command of Sergeant Duffy, and the mentor for his units mascot Bucky Barnes.

Bucky would one night stumble upon Steve changing into Captain America and would convince him to join him in combat as his sidekick, Bucky. Their first mission together would be to break up some Nazi's sneaking into the country and using their own explosives to destroy the submarine they arrived in.
