The National Force was a neo-fascist organization masterminded by Doctor Faustus.
Faustus obtained the suspended-animation bodies of the fourth Captain America and his partner Bucky, replacement heroes of the 1950s. Faustus took control of their minds in an attempt to use them against the original Captain America, rechristening the McCarthy-era stand-in as "The Grand Director", leader of "The National Force".
While working as a S.H.I.E.L.D. liaison with the NYPD, Sharon Carter investigated and infiltrated the organization. During one of the National Force's battles with street criminals in Harlem, the National Guard was brought in. Under the effects of a mind-altering gas, Sharon apparently activated a self-destruct device in her National Force uniform, giving the appearance of accidental self-immolation. Rogers was shown the event on videotape.
