Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Hail Hydra #3 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

A disguised Nomad (Ian Rogers) and Ellie attend a public announcement by the Avengers headed by Iron Baron (Strucker) with Captain Hydra being given the credit for destroying the rebel base (being the boss's son and all). Returning to their safe house, both Ian and Ellie struggle with despair over not being able to do anything to change this world. They decide to go ahead with the resistance plan. Before he died, Tony Stark gave Nomad a device that could lock Arnim Zola's consciousness into a single body long enough to kill him and Ian thinks they have a chance. When Ellie asks why he is doing this, he replies that Steve Rogers saved his world and now he has the chance to pay it forward....

Ian thinks he can pass the Hydra checkpoints to Zola's headquarters because he shares Captain Hydra's DNA. He is wrong: Zola's consciousness recognizes him at once and commands the guards to let Ian and Ellie into the inner chamber, Zola's home. It is a massive control center with Zola's face on a gigantic screen. Zola welcomes Ian because his body contains the secrets of regeneration, something the Zola of this world could not discover that he covets desperately. Zola brings out Steve Rogers, who begs the two to surrender and join Zola's cause. Knowing that their father would never tell them to give up, Ellie leaps forward and stabs him. “Steve” turns out to be a corpse animated by Zola and he and Nomad fight. Ian uses Tony Stark's device to trap Zola in Steve's body. As Ian steps forward for the killing stroke, he sees that Ellie is being taken over by the symbiote, giving Zola the time to recover and attack Ian. The two combatants crash through a window onto a high ledge—then Ian is hit by a shield, throwing him over the edge where he barely hangs on. He looks up to see that Captain Hydra and the rest of the evil Avengers have arrived....
