Synopsis for "The Return of Steve Rogers, Captain America"Edit

“Steve Rogers, patriot of the second World War. Denied a chance to serve his country until a unique military experiment maximized his physical structure … turning him into a super-soldier.
Frozen in suspended animation at war’s end, he awoke in the modern world a man out of time, but never out of courage.
He is … Captain America.”

After escaping the alternate universe created by Franklin Richards, Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America finds himself on the streets of Tokyo, Japan with no memory of where he had been for the last year. Before he can get his bearings Captain America is called into action to stop a group of Japanese terrorists who are protesting the Americanization of Japanese culture.

Later during the premiere of a Captain America film the terrorists strike again and in front of the theater’s audience the Captain makes short work of them. Unfortunately the mastermind of the organization. Lady Deathstrike shows up and the two become locked in a deadly battle but ultimately the Captain is victorious. However while Captain America was working to save the lives of the theater patrons, Lady Deathstrike escaped, but still hundreds of people were saved.
