Synopsis
Cap and Bucky are in China to assist the Chinese war effort against the Japanese when they encounter the mysterious figure of Mother Wong. Said to be 120 years old, Cap is told that she is a traitor to the Chinese people and aids the Japanese. But after Cap and Bucky track her to her temple hideout in Burma, she takes them prisoner and reveals to them that she is really a spy for the Chinese. A Japanese officer overhears and goes to warn his people, leading to a shootout where Cap is hit in the shoulder. Mother Wong's aids return for Cap and pull him out of the temple before the explosives that Mother Wong has set to detonate and kill the Jap troops.
