Captain America #407 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

As the werewolf Captain America fights many other lycanthropes in the Druid church, the Moongem transforms Dredmund into a cosmic being called the Starwolf! As the villain boasts of his plans to turn the world back into wilderness for his furry followers, Capwolf tries to fight him and at the same moment Jack Russell arrives with the anti-Dredmund wolves. A massive battle ensues between the two bands of lycanthropes....

On the outskirts of the town, Cable catches up to his X-Force teammate Feral and shoots her with a tranquilizer. Investigating further, Cable comes to the church where he shoots at Starwolf and is attacked by Capwolf. Starwolf causes the carpet to roll up entrapping Cap and Cable and drops a huge stone on them....

The white werewolf brings the body of Dr Druid to Nightshade's lab and uses the werewolf serum to turn Nightshade all furry as leverage for her supplying the antidote. Meanwhile, Moonhunter escapes from the punishment pit and he releases Wolverine from his cell. When they enter the laboratory, Dr Druid (who had mystically healed his deadly wound) uses his hypnotic ability to free them from Dredmund's mental control....

Wolverine heads to the church where he smells Cable and rolls the huge stone off of him. Turns out that Cap's shield prevented the two of them from being crushed. Once freed, Capwolf attacks Starwolf and tears the Moongem from his throat, tossing it to Cable who crushes it underfoot. Wolverine and Cable take their leave as Capwolf and company head back to the lab....
