Synopsis
Cap rescues a pilot whose plane was shot out of the sky, only to discover he's a member of A.I.M., and he tells Cap about A.I.M.'s "supreme achievement"--The Cosmic Cube--which has been stolen by it's "keeper," who's taking it to his new master...The Red Skull! Watching via remote camera, The Skull uses a "neuro brain-trap device" to brainwash his loyal follower, Wolfgang, into blowing his own brains out! Using an "experimental manned missile" from SHIELD, Cap catches up to The Keeper and leaps in mid-air onto his jet plane. As they battle, the hypnotized man hits the ejector switch, and the two parachute down to a remote island, in view of The Skull. The evil Nazi gains the advantage by telling Cap he was the one who gave the orders that resulted in Bucky's death back in 1945. Gaining the Cosmic Cube, which can "convert thought waves into material action"...he wills The Keeper into another dimension. Cap realizes his foe has now become invincible!
