Synopsis
While at a doctor's appointment, Fury is the target of an assassin, who misses him but hits the doctor instead. Escaping via aircraft, Fury recognizes the "H" symbol and realizes The Hate-Monger is somehow back in action. After rendezvousing at the Heli-Carrier, Fury, Dugan, Jimmy & Gabe pursue the aircraft & wind up in an aeriel dogfight. After shooting down the enemy jet, they follow, only to find themselves in a bizarre prehistoric landscape filled with dinosaurs! Fury plunges into an gigantic underground laboratory and comes face-to-face with The Hate-Monger, who reveals the other SHIELD agents are really victims of the "Psychotron", which is creating illusions in their minds. The Hate-Monger plans to use nuclear missiles to "deal a death-blow to every nation on Earth", and also shows him a "Brain-Bank" chamber containing the "active brains" of all his former advisors and associates, whose mentalities live on even while their bodies are long dead. All looks lost until Dr. Kaupfman, who believed his "Feuhrer" wanted to "save humanity from itself", realizes his plan was really only one of "sheer revenge", and shoots the Hate-Monger-- revealing another Adolph Hitler under the hood! Kaupfman's assistant turns out to be the long-missing Laura Brown in disguise, now working for SHIELD, and she, Fury & the others barely escape as Kaupfman blows the entire complex sky-high.
