Synopsis for "Whatever Happened to Scorpio?"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD #5
(originally printed as What Ever Happened to Scorpio?)

Scorpio returns and successfully traps Nick Fury, who was scheduled to attend the unveiling of a new and improved LMD. With Fury his captive, Scorpio uses a machine to make a perfect casting of his face which he then wears as a mask to impersonate him and attend the unveiling in his place. Further, he drugs Fury and swaps the real Nick Fury with the experimental LMD. When the agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. awakes, he finds himself in the observation room surrounded by his friends but unable to communicate, and forced to run through the gauntlet of tests and traps designed to show off the LMD's capabilities. Fury gets through the test, but Scorpio escapes not before Nick gets one good look at his face.

Synopsis for "Dark Moon Rise, Hell Hound Kill!"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD #3
(originally printed as Dark Moon Rise, Hell-Hound Kill!)

Nick Fury has responded to a personal call from one of his World War II soldiers, Ken Astor; however, by the time Fury arrives at the mysterious Castle Ravenlock in Scotland, Ken has been killed by a ghostly "Hell-Hound" that lurks the grounds at night.

The dark mansion is joined by three psychic investigators: Mycroft, Countess Caution, and a young girl named Rachel. Rachel is especially sensitive to psychic phenomenon and other things unseen, as ironically, Rachel is blind. After several surreal encounters, Fury determines that the haunting of Castle Ravenlock is a ruse.

Mycroft is actually Miles von Croff, an escaped Nazi who had placed an underground submarine station at Ravenlock during World War II who partnered with the lord of the manor, Sir Gavin Ravenlock, before turning the "Hell-Hound" upon him too to throw off suspicions.

Wycroft is then accidentally slain by the Hell-Hound while fleeing from a skirmish with Fury; and in a strange twist of fate, young Rachel is determined to be the groundskeeper's, Angus MacGregor's, niece.
