Countess Mara was a Nazi agent that was active during World War II. In 1941, she and other Nazi spies were stationed in a castle near Camp Lehigh and were assigned to steal a new raid fire grenade launcher that was being shipped there. Pretending to faint in the middle of the road, the truck would stop so the drivers could check on her. These drivers turned out to be Private Steve Rogers and James Barnes who were secretly Captain America and Bucky. Sending Barnes off to get help, Steve was ambushed and caught in the blast of a grenade tossed by Countess Mara and left for dead.

Mara would steal the grenade launcher and take it back to her hideout, sending one of her men to eliminate James before he could alert anyone for help. James was saved by Steve, and as Captain American and Bucky they would follow after Countess Mara. Fighting through her minions they almost retrieved the stolen truck, however Mara would gas them and take them prisoner. She then had them placed in a room filled with fire spewing jets to torture them before eliminating the two heroes once and for all. This would prove her undoing, as Captain America and Bucky would break free and battle her men anew. The Countess would then attempt to use the rapid fire grenade launcher against Captain America. The one grenade fired would be deflected by Cap's shield and the resulting explosion would kill all her men and send their hideout crashing to the ground. Surviving the blast, Mara would beg Captain America and Bucky not to torture and kill her. Cap would tell her that was not their way and intended to send her back to Germany with a message to Hitler: That Americans will never stop fighting for freedom.
