Synopsis for "The Red Skull Strikes Again!"Edit

In Hill, the Red Skull has managed to gain access to Satan's book of damned souls, writing in the name of his hated enemy Captain America in the hopes of trapping the hero in the afterlife forever. On Earth, Captain America is awoken from his sleep by a knock at the door. Answering it he is shocked to find a demon waiting at his door. The demon informs Cap that his soul is now forfeit to his realm and teleports Captain America to the afterlife.

Waiting up in the afterlife, Captain America is given a ride across the River Styx by Charon. Captain America is brought before Satan who is surprised to find Captain America in his domain as he never expected such a noble soul in his realm. However, the demon who brought Captain America to Hell soon informs Satan of the Red Skull's interference. The Red Skull then appears and informs Satan that mistake or not, the rules state that Captain America must stay in the afterlife forever.

After much deliberation, Satan decrees that the Red Skull and Captain America must fight to the finish. The winner gets to return to life in the world of the living while the loser is vanquished for all time. The two agree and the battle begins. The Red Skull attacks Captain America with the Grim Reaper's scythe, warning Cap that the slightest touch of the blade will end the match in the Skull's favour. However, Captain America quickly disarms the Red Skull and lands a punch that sends the Red Skull reeling over the edge of the cliff they are fighting on. Cap reaches out and tries to save his foe, but the Skull's shirt rips in his hands and the villain plummets to his demise. With Captain America victorious, the Devil agrees to let Cap go, erasing his name from his book of the damned.

Captain America suddenly awakens in his apartment and believes the entire experience was only a dream... Until he realizes that he still has a swatch of the Red Skull's shirt in his hand.

Synopsis for "The Tomb of Terror"Edit

  • Synopsis not yet written.



  • This is the last Captain America story of the 1940s. The character is not seen again until Young Men #24 in 1954. This story features only one Captain America story and contains horror tales. The following issue retains the title "Captain America's Weird Tales" but features no Captain America stories.
  • As per the retcon of What If? #4 this appearance is attributed of Captain America is attributed to Jeff Mace.
  • The identity of the Red Skull featured in this story is unexplained, and his identity is confusing when considering the number of retcons that have happened. Clearly, this is not Johann Shmidt as per Tales of Suspense #66 he has been in suspended animation since 1944. The official Marvel Index suggests that it could be George Maxon who posed as the Red Skull and died in Captain America Comics #3. However it may be the Red Skull who battled Jeff Mace earlier in Captain America Comics #61. It seems likely that it is a third, as yet unidentified Red Skull, and would make sense that it was the one who battled Mace as Captain America.
