Solicit Synopsis:Edit

The Red Skull! The Schemer! The Kingpin! And a newly-awakened Sleeper! This one's got it all!

  • In this issue, the Red Skull is revealed to be (Behind the scenes) in Captain America #145-147.
  • Harold Howard, the Kingpin's disguised alias, is spelled "Howards' in this issue.
  • This issue features a letters page, Let's Rap With Cap. Letters are published from Nancy Stenzler, Steve Carey, Tom Ayers, and Nancy Brand.
  • Captain America helps save the world in Avengers 101 and helps the Avengers fight the Sentinels in Avengers 102-104 shortly after this story.
  • As seen on page one, this issue is Story#807Z.
  • This issue is reprinted in other comics and books, see references for more info.
  • The Red Skull's expletive "schweinhunds!" on page 13 is misspelled (the correct spelling would be "schweinehunds"). The term literally means "pig dogs" in German but the English word closer to the spirit of the term would be "bastards."
