Synopsis for "Riddle of the Totem Pole"Edit

The Seattle area is horrified by a series of murders where the victims are found with small, green totem poles. The mystery attracts the attention of Steve Rogers and James Barnes who decide to go to investigate the murders. Riding there by train they are attack by a group of Native American's in disguise. The duo fight them off, but their attackers jump off the train. Changing into Captain America and Bucky the pair rush to the home of the woman who contacted them and warned that her grandfather was the next victim. They arrive too late and find that the man is dead and the one of the killers trademark totems have been left at the scene. They learn from the girl that the killers are members of a Native American tribe and that the barn where they practice their rituals is in the town of Belford.

Captain America and Bucky rush to the barn where they witness the Natives worshipping the green totem god. Attacking, Cap and Bucky are surprised when the chief of this tribe orders his men to stand down and surrender to the authorities. When they arrive at the court house, Cap and Bucky are shocked to learn that there was yet another murder while the chief and his men were in custody. With no way to prove how the totem poles could have killed their victims, Captain America and Bucky go to the local library to study up on the tribe. There, Captain America finds the answer.

Soon he and Bucky canoe up to the tribes sacred land just beyond the Canadian boarder. There they are surrounded by the chief and his tribe who explain that they used the power of fear to kill their victims. He explains that their tribe has decided to drive the white man out off their land in order to appease their god. When he tells Captain America and Bucky that they are to be sacrificed, the duo try to fight back but are knocked out. They awaken sometime later at the top of a massive green totem pole that has been set ablaze. Breaking free of their bonds they find a trap door that leads them down to the base of the hollow totem where they dig their way out. As they dig free, they see as the totem collapses, causing the cliff-side dwelling of the Natives to collapse sending them all falling to their demise.

A month later Dr. Nitro uses the bomb to blast out of his cell, killing two guards in the process.

Before he can find out, Standard suddenly explodes. Jack changes into the Whizzer and chases after the man who doused Standard with the liquid and catches him just before he can get into a getaway car being driven by Dr. Nitro.
