Synopsis for "No Longer Alone!"Edit
While out walking in his civilian identity, Steve Rogers pauses to light a pipe and looks at a poster advertising a charity appearance for Captain America. His thoughts about his troubled life are cut short by sudden pounding as the Hulk smashes through the wall as he passes by in another one of his rampages through New York City. Steve changes into Captain America and goes after the Green Goliath to try and stop him from hurting someone. When the Hulk is knocked down by a barrage of military gun fire, Captain America tries to approach the brute, but is distracted by the passionate cries of Rick Jones. Rick tries to tell Cap that the Hulk isn't a threat, and when the Hulk tries to escape with the boy, he only succeeds in injuring him when trying to fight off Cap and the military. The Hulk then bounds away leaving the injured Jones with Captain America.
Cap takes his one-time sidekick back to Avengers Mansion to recover, and as Rick sleeps Cap once more broods about how easily people in his life can be injured. His thoughts are distracted by footsteps behind him and he turns to find that Rick is up and about and wearing Bucky's uniform. Rick asks to be Cap's sidekick once more and to be the new Bucky. Cap at first cannot stand to have someone else wear the uniform much less the risk of losing their lives as his sidekick. Rick feels rejected which causes Captain America to change his mind and when the alarm in Avengers Mansion goes off, he takes him out on their first patrol together as the new Captain America and Bucky team.
Descending into the sewers under Avengers Mansion they find that the Hydra army is down there with their new leader, Madame Hydra. As the battle rages, Captain America continues to fear for Rick's safety, and when Rick thinks he's doing the right thing, Cap has to pull some fast moves to prevent him from getting harmed. Deciding that this battle is too much for the novice Rick, he orders him to retreat. Cap is then attacked by a Hydra soldier wearing a power vest and seemingly defeated. Unknown to Madame Hydra and the others, Captain America defeated the soldier in the power vest and put on his uniform to get close enough to Madame Hydra.Seeing what appears to be Cap's demise, Rick would run back into the fray, spoiling Cap's surprise attack when he has to blow his cover to save Rick once more. Madame Hydra manages to capture Rick and pushes him over a ledge, forcing Cap to go to his rescue while she escapes. In the aftermath of the battle, Captain America tells Bucky that in the future he will have to learn to follow his orders without question, but tells him that he fought like a man in battle. Rick thinks to himself that while he may not muster up to be as good as the original Bucky, he won't stop trying.

Synopsis for "The Rhino Says No!"Edit
Continued from last issue...
When news about Bruce Banner's impending marriage to Betty Ross, the Leader vows to use the event to attack his foe and destroy him once and for all. Tracking Banner down to where he and Better are out for a boat ride, the Leader contemplates destroying Banner with a missile, but then decides that he will not kill his foe in such a manner because it would not be fitting of his desire for his revenge. The Leader then decides to use one of the Hulk's old foes to destroy his hated enemy. After thinking over the most likely candidate, the Leader decides to select the Rhino -- who has been believed dead since his last encounter with the Hulk, but has actually survived and spent his time in coma under hospital care.
As General Ross invites Betty and Bruce over to give them his blessings and tells them they can have their wedding at the Generals own home, the Leader sends his Super-Humanoid to collect the Rhino's unconscious body. With no challenging opposition, the Super-Humanoid succeeds and brings the Rhino to the Leader's secret lab, where the mastermind uses his advanced technology to revive the Rhino and recreate his Rhino suit and amplifies the Rhino's strength.
After the Rhino destroys the Super-Humanoid as a test, he dispatches the Rhino to do his bidding. During the wedding of Bruce Banner and Betty Ross, the Leader arrives with a gamma ray device disguised as a fuel truck and uses it to fire a beam of gamma radiation into General Ross' home. This causes Bruce to transform into the Hulk, who has reverted back to his normal brutish persona.
Confused as to why he is surrounded by people he believes to be his enemies, the Hulk smashes the home and is instantly attacked by the Rhino. As the house collapses General Ross is injured, and the Leader attempts to take a shot at the Hulk with his weapon and hits the Rhino instead. Furious at being hit, the Rhino charges at the Leader, who ties to escape in an escape ship. The Rhino grabs the vessel and as it flies off into the sky it suddenly explodes seemingly killing them both.
The Hulk departs the scene as paramedics show up to take General Ross into hospital care. Glenn Talbot tries to comfort Betty by telling her that he will see to it personally that the Hulk will be destroyed.
