Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Captain America #103 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
Steve Rogers is on a dinner date with Sharon Carter (Agent 13) when armed thugs invade the club, shoot stun gas in Steve’s face, and carry off Sharon. When the thugs arrive at the Island of Exiles, the Red Skull is enraged to discover that they did not recognize her escort as Captain America and kill him—but no matter, he will continue with his plans for Nazi world domination. As his Chiefs of Staff are entertained by combat between two prisoners, Captain America arrives on the island. Dropping into the ocean from a SHIELD jet, Cap swims underwater, defeats deadly kelp, commandeers an attack craft, evades enemy fire and lands on the island, fighting his way past numerous guards and only hesitates when he comes face-to-face with the Red Skull himself—long enough for a guard to knock him unconscious. While he is out, the Red Skull implants a small strip of nuclear tape on the back of Cap’s neck, bringing him under the villain’s control. As the Exile leaders quarrel over dividing the conquered Earth, Cap and Agent 13 escape from their cells with her concealed SHIELD technology and fight their way to the airfield. The Red Skull intercepts them there and Cap defeats the Skull in hand-to-hand combat, as a victory for freedom, as Sharon seizes a jet and they fly to safety—or so they think. The Red Skull still holds the detonator that controls the nuclear tape which Cap does not realize is attached to his neck.
