Synopsis for "The Unholy Legion"Edit

After a series of murders of leading weapons manufacturers at the hands of apparently homeless men armed with lethal weapons, the authorities learn that it is the work of a group called the Unholy Legion. One day while Steve Rogers and James Barnes are on their way back to Camp Lehigh they notice a supposedly legless homeless man get up and run off into the city at the sound of chiming bells. Following after him they spot a group of homeless people rushing toward a church. Finding this suspicious, Steve sends James to disguise himself as a homeless boy and investigate while he goes to report back to Camp Lehigh on time.

Getting inside the church, James realizes that these homeless people are in reality Nazi agents who are posing as homeless and using the money they beg and steal to fund their operations. When James fails to produce a Nazi brand that all the members of the Unholy Legion have, they realize that he is a spy and capture him. They make Bucky watch as they brand a captured FBI agent with a red hot swastika, and are about to do the same thing to Bucky as well when suddenly Captain America smashes through a boarded up window. While Captain America overpowers the gang, Bucky gets hold of a Gatling gun and holds them hostage, but their leader manages to escape through a secret passage way. Following after him, Cap and Bucky chase him to a U-Boat that is coasting off shore and beat the crew into submission. Locking the leader of the Unholy Legion aboard, they disable the U-Boats engine and place a time bomb aboard, jumping overboard just as it explodes.

When they spot that the leader of the Unholy Legion has escaped via a torpedo, Captain America and Bucky chase him back to the church and arrives just as he has freed his captured minions. After a brief struggle against the two heroes, the Nazi spies are all beaten into submission and turned over to the authorities.
