Marvel Adventures Super Heroes #8 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

In the closing days of World War 2, Captain America and Bucky attempted to stop the hijacking of a military drone plane. Bucky leaped aboard and seconds later the plane exploded, killing the boy sidekick and hurling Cap into the ocean where he was lost for decades….

He awakens in SHIELD headquarters where Major Sharon Carter attempts to explain what happened to him; Cap thinks they are Nazis pulling a trick and escapes from the complex. Outside, he is stunned to see a New York he barely recognizes…. Sharon orders her agents to find him, as he needs a booster shot of vita-serum to stay alive. As Cap wanders the city, he encounters a young street musician who resembles Bucky; the musician, Rick Jones, thinks this guy is crazy but tries to calm him down by going along with his claims to be the long-lost war hero. He relates to Rick how he was chosen for the Super-Soldier project and endowed with power and a costume and spent the War fighting the Red Skull and the Nazi menace, and now he has no idea what will become of him. As they sit in the park, a hovercraft full of Hydra agents descends and demands that Cap surrender; Cap recognizes rats when he sees them and puts up a fight. With the help of Rick, he defeats the baddies and tells the watching crowd that so long as terrorists like Hydra exist to threaten freedom, his war is not over. Sharon and SHIELD arrive to give Cap the needed serum, and Cap unmasks a traitor in the SHIELD ranks. The next day, Sharon tells Cap he must go into an intense education program to catch up on all that he has missed. Cap—Steve Rogers—informs her he would rather learn all that from an ordinary citizen, Rick Jones….

Story #2

Spy for the Cameras!

Writer: Roger Langridge. Penciler: Craig Rousseau. Inker: Craig Rousseau. Colorist: Chris Sotomayor.

Synopsis / Summary / Plot

During the War, top secret papers are stolen from a weapons manufacturer. The thief is identified as Karl Foeppl, a Nazi sympathizer currently working as a set builder at a Hollywood studio. Captain America is assigned to recover the papers. Two days later, Cap is undercover as a cowboy extra at Democracy Studios. He literally bumps into Roz Hepburn a makeup artist and is curious that she seems to be following someone. He tags along after switching to his Cap outfit and is just in time to see Karl Foeppl topple a wooden wall on her. Cap carries her out of the way and pursues the baddie through the studio, catching up to him just as he is about to hand the papers over to a spy in a waiting car. Cap hurls his shield and knock out Foeppl, scattering the plans but a sudden flashbulb from Roz’s camera blinds him long enough for the contact to get away. After the plans are recovered (all but one page, seen blowing in the wind in the last panel), Cap blames Roz for letting the spy get away; she blames Cap for blowing her cover: she is a journalist who was working on an expose of the movie industry. As they part, she realizes how handsome he is….
