Synopsis for "Armageddon"Edit
Once the Avengers arrest Nuke, Captain America becomes disturbed by the fact that he has a USA flag tattooed on his face, and starts to investigate his background. When the military authorities give him rather evasive answers, Cap breaks into top secret records and discovers Nuke is the only surviving test subject of an attempt to recreate Project Rebirth, the project that enhanced the Captain's own body and made him the super-soldier. Nuke breaks free from custody in the same base. He is stopped by Captain America, but the Kingpin then arrives and gives the order to kill Nuke. Nuke is subsequently shot fatally by the military. Daredevil, having heard word of Nuke's escape while stealing money to rebuild the diner, grabs Nuke from Captain America and takes him to the Daily Bugle, hoping to get him to testify about the Kingpin. However, he is not fast enough to get there, and Nuke dies before he can provide any evidence.
Trying to get Nuke back from Daredevil, Captain America instead stumbles upon one of the hitmen sent to kill Nuke and Daredevil. The hitman names the Kingpin as being behind Nuke's assault on Hell's Kitchen, setting off a wave of lawsuits and murders. The Kingpin is able to fight off pretty much all the charges, but his public image as an honest and respectable businessman is finally shattered, and his lieutenants lose confidence in him. His obsession unabated, he disregards Captain America's role and once again plans for revenge on Murdock instead. But Murdock has different plans, and he is living in Hell's Kitchen content with his new life with Karen and his vow to fight for justice in his neighborhood and the Man Without Fear - Born Again.
