A clone of Luther Manning comes back in time from 1991 (this changes to 1993 in issue #288) to find the Deathlok cyborg.

Cap follows him into an abandoned Brand Corp. building where they come up against Brand soldiers and Deathlok himself.

Indexer Notes

Two slight alterations in the Captain America: Deathlok Lives reprint are the removal of credits on page 4 and the replacement of the next blurb on page 22 with a thought from the Luther Manning clone from the first page of Captain America #287 which is also not reprinted.
