When Steve and Bucky visit the House of Pranks they are met by a jester whom the guests think is a man named Bryce but is really Johnnie Pinkham. Johnny overpowered Bryce a week ago and locked him up in a room in the subbasement. Johnnie wants revenge for a childhood hazing stunt when several of the guests locked him in a graveyard overnight. He manages to kill two of them before Cap and Bucky stop him.
