Synopsis for "The Ringmaster of Death"Edit

When a circus comes to town near Camp Lehigh, Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes decide to check it out, unaware that it is secretly a Nazi operation and that the Ringmaster has been charged with eliminating various military officials in the area. Using his "Wheel of Death" the Ringmaster sets his sights on General Blaine. When his assistant Tommy Thumb refuses to participate in murdering Blaine, the Ringmaster uses violence to force the dwarf to do as he is ordered. Tommy goes and lets a lion loose from it's cage and it mauls Blaine to death. Spotting the danger, Steve Rogers and James change into Captain America and Bucky and subdue the big cat and return it to its cage. Deducing that Blaine's death was not an accident the pair attempt to capture Tommy Thumb but are stopped by other circus workers. Overhearing them talk of a "ringmaster" in charge they become suspicious of the operation.

Returning to Camp Lehigh in their civilian guises, Steve and James get in trouble with Sgt. Duffy who assigns them to K.P. Duty. The following morning Steve tells what he believes to Betty Ross who decides to take Steve's suspicions to Defense Commissioner Newsome. However, Newsome is the next target on the Ringmaster's list and he sends Omir the Snake Charmer, Zandow the Strongman, and the Trapeze Trio to eliminate him. Newsome is bitten by a cobra and dies from the venom. Witnessing the Circus of Crime escaping from the scene of the murder, Betty Ross is attacked. When Captain America and Bucky attempt to rescue her they are easily over powered and the crooks get away with Betty as their prisoner.

Captain America and Bucky soon follow after them to the circus unaware that the Ringmaster has targeted them for death next. They are confronted by the entire circus staff who attack them head on. The duo fight their way through the circus staff and rescue Betty from a deadly plunge from the top of the big tent. Chasing after the Ringmaster, Captain America easily beats him into submission. After Betty thanks them for saving her life again, Captain America and Bucky leave when the authorities are on their way.

Synopsis for "The Gruesome Secret of the Dragon of Death"Edit

Steve Rogers and James Barnes are assigned to accompany General Haywood on a mission to Honolulu to act as the generals orderly. As they are on their way to the island, natives in the area warn military officials of a supposed giant sea monster that is in the pacific swallowing up entire ships. Deciding to investigate the claims, the Navy sends out their ship the Winfield to investigate. Sure enough they come across what appears to be a giant sea monster that swallows up the entire ship. When General Haywood arrives shortly after with Steve Rogers and Bucky they learn of the disappearance of the Winfield which piques Steve's interest to want to investigate as Captain America.

The sea monster however is really a massive submarine built by Imperial Japan called the "Dragon of Death", and it's leader Captain Okada has taken Commander Phillips, the commanding officer aboard the Winfield and demands that he provide secrets regarding the Navy's on Kuona Island which is the site of a dormant volcano. However, when even torture fails to get answers from Phillips, Okada orders his minions to kidnap Phillips daughter Marie, hoping that her tortured screams will make the tight lipped Naval officer talk.

Deducing that something suspicious is up, Captain America and Bucky would keep an eye on Marie Phillips and witness her being captured by the Japanese soldiers. Following after them they would witness as they are swallowed up by the Dragon of Death. Following inside they are confronted by and fight their way through an army of Japanese soldiers while Marie is brought to the room where her father is being kept. However before Phillips is forced to talk, Captain America makes his way to the control room and announces that he has taken over the vessel. Fearing capture, Okada orders everyone aboard his private submarine and he makes his escape, taking Marie hostage and escaping. Finding Phillips, Captain America learns that Okada plans on detonating explosives on Kuona Island to cause the base to be flooded with lava.

Diving out to sea, Captain America swims after Okada's submarine and fights the his minions as they are setting the explosives. With the ship on a direct course to the island with explosives they abandon the sub in a boat. Captain America rushes down below and saves Marie, ejecting her to safety through a torpedo tube and then attempts to divert the boat. He succeeds but the ship explodes. Fearing that Cap was killed, Bucky would use the weapons aboard the Dragon of Death to sink Okada's escape ship killing him. Shortly after Marie is pulled aboard the Dragon, Captain America arrives alive and well.

With their civilian identities unaccounted for, Captain America and Bucky jump ship and resume them only to be told by General Haywood that they would be assigned K.P. Duty following their return to Camp Lehigh due to their "absence".
