- Cap gets a psychic distress signal from a woman he rescued from Morgan Hardy and enters the complex of August Masters who plans on using the powers of the world's foremost psychics to start World War III. Finding the Defenders already captured, Cap helps in their rescue and stays behind to cover their escape. Rather than watch everyone in the complex die from Masters' self destruct mechanism, Cap and the Defenders allow themselves to be taken prisoner once again.
Continued from The Defenders (Marvel, 1972 series) #105 and in The Defenders (Marvel, 1972 series) #106; Steve and Bernie go to see Raiders of the Lost Ark and Steve dismisses Indiana Jones as an amoral hero.
