Synopsis for "Saturday Night Furor"Edit

Two joggers find Captain America floating unconscious in the water. He comes to in their home and discovers his face is own and that he has no memory of recent events. He returns to Avengers Mansion where Iron Man points out that his false face is a synthetic skin disguise. Wasp tells Cap he met Al Avision last night, but Cap knows no one by that name. Following every lead possible, Cap eventually discovers that he's been poisoned. Trying a different tactic, Cap goes through the Avengers phone records and finds his answer. Cap contacts Gen. Fist to tell him that he and Ken were discovered in their mission to stop the Madbomb component smuggling operation, and that Ken must have been tortured and killed. Cap races toward the scheduled Madbomb convoy in time to engage Tarantula and Senor Muerte. Cap quickly defeats the villains and Gen. Fist arrives to secure the Madbomb components.
