The New Captain America in the hands of the enemy in China! His secret past as the Winter Soldier in danger of coming to light! And what are his old Invaders teammate the Sub-Mariner and the Black Widow doing while Bucky Barnes faces his darkest past?
In 1942, Cap and Bucky, along with the Human Torch, were part of a secret operation to rescue top chinese scientist Professor Zhang Chin, a 12-year-old super-genius. In 1968, the Winter Soldier was called on to eliminate Chin, but instead killed an innocent woman. Now, years later, he comes face to face with Chin's greatest, most terrible experiment - the resurrection of the Human Torch.
Cap calls in Namor to help him infiltrate Chin's lab in Taiwan. Little does he know, Black Widos has just discovered the secret Cap has been trying to keep from her - that the Winter Soldier is a wanted man in China and that he's deliberately walked into the lion's den.
