Cap is in the middle of training, Nick Fury turns up looking for info on a secret organization known as "THEM". A strange flying craft lands outside Avengers Mansion, and a chemical android attacks. In a remote lab, members of "THEM" observe by remote camera, while watching over a "battalion" of androids growing like plants in a glass-enclosed hydroponic garden, due to experiments with D.N.A. Cap and Fury barely manage to stop the android. Fury tells Cap it's SHIELD's job, and to stay out of it. But he gives Cap a SHIELD "Priority A-1" badge to make getting in touch easier in the future.
