Review: See issue #25 for a full review of this storyline.

Comments: Nick Fury recaps FANTASTIC FOUR #21 (from 1963), Hate Monger's first appearance. There is a gag reference to the notorious TV special in which Geraldo Rivera opened a vault that may have belonged to Al Capone on live television and found it empty; here we learn that SHIELD supposedly cleaned it out earlier.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Captain America #26 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Captain America and the Falcon are prisoners of the Hate Monger, ruling over his new American Nazi organization. The villain's plan is to launch the stolen anthrax into the centers of Europe and the Middle East and wipe out millions, leading to utopia. Cap breaks his chains but a gun held to Falcon's head subdues him. Kidnapped African American General McAllister Groves will be framed for having launched the attacks in a fit of madness, igniting a race war in the USA and around the world. Hate Monger paints a swastika on Cap's shield to use as his symbol of victory. Cap is dropped into a dungeon where he finds Nick Fury—and then the pit starts filling with water....

Interlude 1: The three young SHIELD agents, Corbin, Pyle, and Billups, assigned to catalog an enormous warehouse, open an unmarked crate and get a surprise. Two surprises, in fact, as Billups kills the other two and takes control of the crate for his real masters....

Interlude 2: Sharon Carter and Turkish Secret Service Director Mehmet Kemel, who has been transformed into an ankylosaurus head to Antarctica in their stolen plane and, caught in a blizzard, spiral into a crash....

In water up to their chins, Cap manages to reach a lock pick concealed in his belt buckle and frees Fury, who returns the favor. Crashing out they head to the courtyard where Hate Monger has two rocket launchers, each with a load of deadly anthrax and each with a hostage (Falcon, General Groves) chained to the front. As Cap takes on the villain's army, Fury tries to stop the missiles; Hate Monger knocks Fury out with Cap's shield and hits the launch button....
