Synopsis:
Lured to an arcade by a faked message, Cap is ambushed by HYDRA assassins, who point out that since his identity is known, he's an easy target. After they fail to kill Cap, the one in charge of the hit is punished by Madame Hydra. Cap & Rick watch films of Cap & Bucky, then go to the gym for more training. But Rick feels overwhelmed and inadequate. Rick picks up a drugged message meant for Cap, and finds himself in a hallucinogenic landscape. Cap discovers the message, but too late to stop Rick's abduction. Cap returns to the arcade, and is attacked by the Man-Killer, HYDRA's newest robot. Rick escapes & tries to warn Cap, just as he takes out the robot, and Cap realizes Rick has what it takes. Then, abruptly, he appears to leap from a rooftop into the river, straight through a barrage of HYDRA gunfire! The police only find his costume-- and a mask with the facial features of Steve Rogers, which suggests "Rogers" was a fake identity!

Indexer Notes

Part 2 of 3. Page 9 contains Steranko's 2nd tribute to Salvador Dali (following the cover of NICK FURY #7). The "Spectro-Ray", which reveals no hidden weapons on Rick, is strikingly similar to the effect used by Infinata in the 1968 ROCKET ROBIN HOOD cartoon "Revolt In The Fifth Dimension" (and its 1969 SPIDER-MAN cartoon remake). One of the kidnappers on page 11 bears a striking resemblance to Stan Lee!
