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.

Synopsis for "If a Hostage Should Die!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Tales of Suspense #77.

While watching a documentary of his aid in liberating Nazi occupied France in World War 2, some of the footage causes Cap to think about the mysterious woman whom he had loved back then.

Recalling back to his time in Nazi occupied France, Captain America was battling Nazis when he met the girl as she was leading a band of French resistance fighters.

Having to part on their separate missions, the girl and her resistance fighters get captured by the Nazis, something that Cap finds out while fighting a different battle and rushes to her aid. There, he is told he was too late to save her, and single handedly defeats the Nazis in the camp. When victorious, it becomes apparent that Captain America helped free France from Nazi control and is carried off by the victors as a hero, even though he is trying to break away to search for the girl, little knowing that she is watching the whole spectacle. Unfortunately, the shell blast made her lose her memory so she walks off into the shadows.

Finishing his recollection, Cap laments over the fact that he never learned the true fate of his mysterious blond romance.

Synopsis for "Stop Making Sense"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Captain America #307.

While Captain America is returning home from London, Jack Monroe gets a job as a grocery bagger until Nomad has to deal with a new villain called Madcap, a seemingly indestructible lunatic rampaging through the city with the power to induce lunacy on others. Nomad falls victim to this power and spends hours hallucinating himself as someone that's literally just half a Captain America. When he finally comes out of it, he finds that his absence from work didn't go unnoticed and loses his job on his first day. With all his troubles, he doesn't notice that Bernie is also about to lose her livlihood as the Glass shop is shutting down.

Elsewhere, the Serpent Squad breaks into the home of their erstwhile teammate, Sidewinder.
