Johnny's obstacle course training is interrupted when some friends tell him of news that Captain America is alive, and is making a public appearance at an antique auto show. Cap & Johnny stop some crooks, but Cap is extremely rude, saying he doesn't need any help. Doris raves about Cap to make Johnny jealous. But "Cap" breaks the 2 thieves out of jail. On being caught, they claim Cap just wanted them as decoys to draw the police away while he robbed a bank! "Cap" gives Johnny a really hard time, until he's finally stopped and unmasked. "Cap" turns out to be Carl Zante, The Acrobat, whom Johnny fought once before. Back home, Johnny looks over some old Captain America comics, which include the details that Cap was really Army Private Steve Rogers, and wonders if he is still alive or will ever return...
