CAPTAIN AMERICA #8
Plot by EXCITER
Written by FRANK MILLER
Art by SEAN GORDON MURPHY
“M.O.D.O.K. SHRUGGED”
Advanced Idea Mechanics. A massive tech corporation inscrutably hidden behind layers of shell companies, A.I.M. operates within a secret community where brainpower is the highest moral virtue. This “island” is stylized as a paradise for the intellectual elite - at least according to their leader, M.O.D.O.K.! Mockingbird, who stumbled upon the community during an investigation, isn’t so sure!
M.O.D.O.K., however, is sure about Mockingbird, a.k.a. Dr. Bobbi Morse - a peerless counter-terrorist with the mind of a genius biologist and a body that Millie the Model would envy. Who else could be worthy of her affections but the man with the biggest brain? He’d do anything to change her status to “in a relationship”... but will he do THAT?
Romance aside, there’s a new product roll-out to oversee. In M.O.D.O.K.’s view, the greatest danger to the world is the willfully ignorant “working class” - uneducated and unmotivated, they are tainted by racism and religion and if left unchecked will irreversibly change the global climate. The only solution is to remove them, and M.O.D.O.K. plans to do just that - through automation! A.I.M.’s robotic Super Adaptoids can replace any human at any job... even a peak human, and M.O.D.O.K. will prove it - by replacing Captain America! Using a remote-controlled LMD named George Tarleton, M.O.D.O.K. has convinced the Office of National Emergency’s Valerie Cooper to arrange a test of his merchandise. It’s man versus machine, as Cap must face-off against the Super Adaptoid prototype with his government contract, and the future of human labor, on the line!

“THROWBACK THORSDAY”
Magni and Modi Thorson. The twins of Thunder. Gods of strength and courage, respectively. Alas, the glorious destiny one envisions for these two never manifested. Raised in the ruins of Asgard, the brothers grew to manhood struggling to survive amongst Dark Elven death squads, gangs of ravenous undead Draugr, and worse. War had come to their homeland and never left. Their grandfather Odin’s reign ended in violence, their mother Sif slain before coming to term, forcing them into combat from the moment they escaped the womb. The only constant in their lives besides death was their caretaker, Old Man Banner, who started out mad and slowly deteriorated. Even when lucid, however, Banner could never recall specifically what caused Asgard’s fall, though he consistently told them two things... it happened in the Midgard year of 2019 and it was entirely their father’s fault! But all is not lost! The brothers have salvaged pieces of the destroyed Bifrost to open a small rainbow bridge, not through space... but through time. The two can finally go back to before the Götterdämmerung War. They can finally go back - and slay Thor before he ruins everything!
Meanwhile, in the present, the Draugr king Thrain and the Dark Elf Malekith amass more allies disgruntled with Asgard’s dominance, all recently thwarted and humbled by the Sons of Odin. Amongst them? Aldrnari, of the molten men of the Múspellssynir; Fing Fang Foom, leader of the Jormungandi descendants of the Midgard Serpent; and “Thunderbolt” Ross, America’s foremost military general. Yet the most powerful member of this foreboding cabal is also the most unanticipated. For no one would ever expect... her!

Art by SEAN GORDON MURPHY
July 4, 1777. One year after the Declaration of Independence... and freedom hangs by a thread. British forces launched a successful counter-offensive and were about to capture New York City, leaving American morale dangerously low. General Washington knew the Continental Army needed a hero and was desperate enough to explore... unconventional options. A colonial alchemist promised an elixir that could elevate a true patriot to peak human potential. His claims seemed naught but puffery - until, as Manhattan was falling and the alchemist killed, Nathanael Greene imbibed the elixir. Born a Quaker, raised a pacifist and afflicted with asthma, the Rhode Islander was initially denied entry into the militia. Now, however, he was a super-soldier! If Greene can lead the revolutionaries to a victory at Saratoga it could change everything - and convince France to support the American upstarts. But the British are coming with a super-soldier of their own. And the nefarious RED COAT plans not to give them liberty... but to give them death!
