Synopsis for "Vengeance"
Three months ago, in a homeless shelter, an old man watching a television saw Captain America, and found him wanting. He has decided to do something.
In a Los Angeles nightclub, a young man meets two young women and they depart. A white-haired man in a suit watches them go.
In Hitler's Germany, the Red Skull is in a meeting with the Führer. Despite the recent threat of the July 4 plot and the successes in Normandy of June 6, Hitler's greatest worry is the Russian Super-Soldier program. To deal a final crushing blow to his greatest foes, he will dispatch the Red Skull to defeat them.
Meanwhile, in Area 51, a young woman in a gaudy costume is breaking into a prison. Running Ops for her is a couple on the other end of a radio connection. The woman identifies herself as Miss America, and destroys blast doors with super-strength before flying down long corridors. She finds a bizarre-looking young man and departs.
Back in Los Angeles, the white haired man bursts in on the three youngsters, revealing himself as Magneto, former mutant terrorist and self-appointed X-Men moral guardian. The young man pulls a strange-looking weapon and shoots him, negating his powers. The two brawl, as the young man introduces himself as Ultimate Nullifier. He also expresses surprise that Magneto seems to have actually turned over a new leaf. At this he reveals that Magneto's powers will soon come back and then both depart.
In New York (technically the following day), a former SHIELD agent named Fritch is in a meeting with with Kyle Richmond. Fritch has discovered that someone in SHIELD is giving secret information to some outside party. Richmond promises to look into it, and immediately contacts the Last Defenders, a super-team he is associated with.
Ultimate Nullifier gets off a motorcycle and begins talking face-to-face with the couple running Ops for Miss America. Nullifier identifies them as the latest incarnation of the Teen Brigade, a secret organization of teenagers dating back to the first half of the 20th century, whose mission has always been to aid the heroes of the day. As Miss America flies the strange boy from Nevada to California, a cosmic being hungers for sacrifice, the Last Defenders begin their investigation, Kristoff Vernard starts to plot something to celebrate his ascension to the throne of Latveria, and the Young Masters have a recruitment drive. All of this is of little note to Miss America, however, as her passenger has just been tracked down by a squadron of demons...
