Synopsis for "Captain America"Edit

With prisoners of war in Korea becoming sick, communist nations of the world have begun accusing the United States of torturing and poisoning prisoners. Suspecting some form of fowl play the United States military calls in Captain America and Bucky for assistance. They give him an antidote for those who have been poisoned and send Cap and Bucky off to Korea to investigate the strange poisonings and stop them at their source. Overhearing this a communist spy reports this back to his superior who sets in motion plans to prevent Captain America from succeeding at his mission.

At the airport, Cap and Bucky are about to board their plane that has the antidote when suddenly a bomb inside it explodes. However, it was merely a decoy as Cap reveals that he has the real antidote on him. They take another plane and fly across the ocean to Europe on their way to Korea. Over the Atlantic they are attacked by an enemy aircraft carrier but trick one of it's own planes to crash into it. Suddenly surrounded by enemy jets, Cap and Bucky bail out of the plane leaving it to be destroyed and leaving the communists to believe they were killed in the blast.

Picked up by a French boat, they are taken to France where they get another plane and resume their mission. Along the way they are once more dogged by enemy fighters but manage to trick them into crashing while flying through a canyon.

When they finally arrive in Korea and try to administer the antidote to the Chinese prisoners of war, they believe that Captain America is trying to poison them, however Cap fights them all off and takes the sickest one and cures him. When they see that their comrade has been cured of his illness, the other prisoners of war back down and allow themselves to be cured as well.

  • Although the Captain America stories identify the title characters as Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes, as per the retcon of Captain America #153 these appearances are attributed to William Burnside and Jack Monroe who replaced the original Captain America and Bucky in the 1950s.
