Synopsis for "The Yellow Claw Strikes"Edit

The Yellow Claw, who resurfaced last issue, has taken his operation to New York City. Cap soon battles his new sinister creations, Giant Spiders running amok in the Big Apple. After defeating the spiders, Cap believes that he has found the Yellow Claw and engages him in combat, one on one. Cap wins the battle, using his full "super strength" on the formidable Claw. Then, the Claw reveals that it has all been an hallucination. Cap has not battled the Claw but severely beaten his old friend Nick Fury, who now lies in a comatose state between life and death...
