Synopsis:
On the run from SHIELD, Fury witnesses what appears to be a political rally, staged by someone called "The Super-Patriot", who advocates taking the country back from "traitors" within the government! SHIELD arrives in force to arrest him for refusing a Federal court order to appear for questioning, and an open gun-battle erupts in the sky over Manhattan! Fury thinks back to his earlier arrest, when Dugan refused to believe that Rickard was a spy, and then Laura Brown passed him a "sonic disintegrator ring" which he used to escape. Gabe interrupts someone trying to mug Fury, then lets him know The Super-Patriot is planning to strike at the U.N. An undercover agent for The Super-Patriot reports that Fury is still a fugitive, and therefore no threat; he then tracks Fury down and corners him, revealing he's really Jasper Sitwell in disguise! But Fury turns the tables and trades places with Jasper, showing up at the U.N. just as The Super-Patriot is about to destroy the U.N. building! SHIELD shows up, a total free-for-all erupts, and trying to escape, The Super-Patriot accidentally trips and falls to his death! About to be arrested again, Fury takes off the villain's mask... only to find his own face underneath!

Indexer Notes

Part 2 of 3. Plot this issue makes an almost total disconnect from previous episode; the "logic" behind this is explained in Part 3. Abrupt departure of Barry Smith & replacement by Herb Trimpe coincides with the book becoming bi-monthly with this issue.
