Synopsis for "The Case of the Squad of Mystery"Edit

During routine competitions at Camp Lehigh, one troop - that was previously not that great - passes with flying colors. When the squad leader is awarded for their good show, he almost gives a "Sieg Heil". This is noticed not only by Steven Rogers, but also a Lieutenant on base. That night, Steve and James change into Captain America and Bucky to investigate the strangeness of this squad. Unfortunately they arrive too late to stop the lieutenant from confronting the other soldiers. The lieutenant is shot dead by a bald man who is outside the squad's tent. But when Captain America attempts to subdue the shooter, he is accidentally struck over the head by a military police officer and the assailant escapes. When a commanding officer arrives on the scene of the murder, he accuses Captain America and Bucky of being impostors forcing the two heroes to flee the scene to avoid capture.

They pay a visit to a camp commander they've assisted in the past and get him to agree to have Steve Rogers transferred into this squad to investigate the strange truth behind the behavior. The squad, really Nazi spies who have replaced the soldiers are leery when Steve Rogers is assigned to their unit and attempt to get him to take a forged leave pass to get him out of their hair. When Rogers refuses to leave base, the instead take him on a "training exercise" in the hopes of eliminating him. Toppling a tree over Rogers allows himself to slip away and change into Captain America and confront the fake soldiers. With Bucky he easily subdues them, confirming his suspicion that they are spies. However, without proof they cannot act so after some research Cap realizes that the soldiers took their most recent leave together to go to the capital. Deducing this is the point in which they started acting differently, Cap pays a visit to the Travelers Bureau. There he learns that the soldiers in question were told to check out the Mariposa Cafe as a cheap place to eat. Going there, they demand to speak to the manager and recognize him as the bald man who killed the Lieutenant the night before, even though he is wearing a wig.

Before they can act, the two heroes are dumped into a dungeon below through a trap door. There they find the real soldiers, confirming their suspicion that they had been replaced, and that the operation was headed by a Nazi named Herr Grotz. They also learn that the plan was to go on a murder spree to lower America's morale and faith in the armed forces. When two of Grotz's men go down to eliminate Captain America and Bucky, the two heroes easily beat them and use their keys to free the captured soldiers. Rushing to Camp Lehigh, there with the help of the real soldiers beat the fake ones into submission. With the plot exposed and Grotz and his minions captured, Captain America and Bucky slip away before they can be thanked so they can change back into their civilian guises and get a good night's rest.

When Rand attempts to fight some more, Bucky trips him up, sending Rand after him.

As Brinner is busy romancing Drucilla, Cap manages to slip away and try to stop the coming clash between the two families. Along the way, Cap trips over a Buxite deposit and realizes that the land owned by both the Rands and the Crogers are rich with aluminum. Realizing what's going on, Cap stops Brinner as he is attempting to use a call box to call the police to tip them off of the impending fight between the families. Realizing that Brinner was manipulating the two families to wipe themselves out so he could cash in on the metal ore, he clashes with the man. During their struggle, Cap is thrown off a cliff but his quick reflexes save him from a fatal fall. As he rushes to try and stop the feud he runs into Bucky who managed to break out of the guard house and the two rush off to stop it together.

While Cap and Bucky capture Brinner's gang, Brinner himself tries to convince Colonel Rand that Captain America is the one trying to wipe out the two families. However, Cap arrives with the gangsters captive, which forces Brinner to flee. With his abandoned men confessing the whole thing, the two families finally make peace. When Brinner attempts to kill the two patriarchs of each family, Captain America and Bucky beat him into submission and leave him for the two families to take to the authorities. Rushing back to Camp Lehigh, Cap and Bucky resume their civilian guises and are reamed out by Sgt. Duffy for going AWOL once again.

Synopsis for "The Symphony of Terror"Edit

Grand Opera Company owner Morton Friend receives a letter warning him to pull his lead actor, Richard Thomas from their production of "Faust" during this evenings performance or else. Dismissing it as a prank, Friend is soon murdered by a man wearing the Mephisto costume made for the production.
