Synopsis for "The Camera Fiend and His Darts of Doom"Edit

As the Maritime Commission is waiting for crown jewels to arrive from Britain, the men on duty are targeted and killed by a gang of crooks led by a costumed villain known as the Camera Fiend who uses a camera that fires darts coated with a lethal poison. When Steve Rogers and Bucky arrive on the scene to pick up a message from the office they catch the Camera Fiend in the act of stealing information on the jewels and go into action as Captain America and Bucky. Although the two heroes get the drop on the Camera Fiend and his minions, they flee upon the sound of oncoming police sirens.

The following day at school, Bucky convinces his teacher Lucius Hall to take the children on a field trip to watch as the jewels from England are being offloaded from the boat landing in America the following day. While Steve Rogers is posted as security, Bucky convinces his fellow students (also members of the Sentinels of Liberty) to keep an eye out. When the jewels are being offloaded, the Camera Fiend and his men attack once more. During the attack, Steve and James slip away and change into Captain America and Bucky and prevent the Camera Fiend from stealing the jewels. While his gang is captured, the Camera Fiend manages to slip away. After changing back into their civilian clothing, Bucky gets into a playful challenge with his classmates telling them that he can get pictures of Captain America whenever he wants.

This is overheard by the Camera Fiend who sneaks into Camp Lehigh and replaces Bucky's camera with one that fires poison darts. Later when Steve returns to base, Bucky convinces him to pose for photos. However when Bucky takes a picture, Cap just barely manages to block a poison dart with his shield. Cap decides to play possum in the hopes that the Camera Fiend would come to check on him, however the crook does not fall for the ruse, and he leaves them a mocking note. When Bucky is upset that he was unable to take a picture of Captain America, Cap tells him not to worry because he will accompany him to class in costume.

The next day, Captain America presents himself before the class and when Mr. Hall attempts to take a picture, Captain America attacks him and reveals him to be the Camera Fiend. With the aid of the Sentinels of Liberty and Bucky, Captain America manages to prevent Hall from escaping and capture him. With Hall turned over to the authorities, Captain America thanks the Sentinels for their help.

While on the East Coast, Steve takes his posting along with James Barnes and he is warned by the Chinese officials of the threat of Fang. Sure enough, Fang and his minions storm the room and easily overpower Steve, killing one of the Chinese dignitaries and taking the other prisoner along with Bucky. Revived shortly thereafter, Steve is ordered to be held for further questioning, however Betty Ross gives him a lead on where the Fang may have taken the Chinese diplomat. Breaking out of his cell, Steve changes into Captain America and heads for Lotus street. As Fang is torturing the Chinese dignitary, an intruder is detected and Betty Ross is soon captured.
