Synopsis

Captain America runs across the Hulk on a rampage in NYC. The Hulk escapes and Cap vows Rick must never put himself in danger until the monster can be tamed. Back at Avengers Mansion Rick finds Bucky Barnes' old uniform, and rejects Cap's protests against wearing it. After putting him off for years, Cap finally accepts Rick officially as his new partner. Almost immediately they uncover a plot by HYDRA to contaminate the city's water supply. After a series of battles the HYDRA goons are driven off, and Cap tells Rick he survived his "baptism of fire" like a man.

Synopsis

Lured to an arcade by a faked message, Cap is ambushed by HYDRA assassins, who point out that since his identity is known, he's an easy target. After they fail to kill Cap, the one in charge of the hit is punished by Madame Hydra. Cap & Rick watch films of Cap & Bucky, then go to the gym for more training. But Rick feels overwhelmed and inadequate. Rick picks up a drugged message meant for Cap, and finds himself in a hallucinogenic landscape. Cap discovers the message, but too late to stop Rick's abduction. Cap returns to the arcade, and is attacked by the Man-Killer, HYDRA's newest robot. Rick escapes & tries to warn Cap, just as he takes out the robot, and Cap realizes Rick has what it takes. Then, abruptly, he appears to leap from a rooftop into the river, straight through a barrage of HYDRA gunfire! The police only find his costume-- and a mask with the facial features of Steve Rogers, which suggests "Rogers" was a fake identity!
