Synopsis
Lured to an arcade by a faked message Cap is ambushed by HYDRA assassins. Failing to kill Cap the leader is punished by Madame Hydra. Rick accepts a drugged message meant for Cap and is abducted by Hydra. Seeking out Rick, Cap returns to the arcade and is attacked by the Man-Killer, a HYDRA robot. Rick escapes & tries to warn Cap, just as he takes out the robot. Abruptly, Cap appears to leap from a rooftop into the river through a barrage of HYDRA gunfire. The police only find his costume and a mask with the facial features of Steve Rogers, suggesting 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!
