“PARALLELS”
Two men, both transformed into super soldiers by and for their respective nations. One given an unbreakable vibranium shield, the other indestructible carbonadium tendrils. Both were incredibly effective weapons against their homeland’s enemies, and through happenstance both ended up frozen for many decades. But when Steve Rogers woke up, he found the country he fought for had thrived. It became the world’s sole superpower and, despite some hiccups, it still overwhelmingly stood for truth and justice. His American Dream was alive and well. When Arkady Rossovich awoke, he found the nation he fought for no longer existed. It had crumbled into the dust of the past, murdered by weak-willed and incompetent leaders and replaced with a despicably corrupt kleptocracy. He wasn’t there when his beloved U.S.S.R. needed him the most, but Rossovich will never abandon his Soviet Dream. He will take Steve Rogers’ country from him and he will do so in the spirit of a true revolution. If all goes according to plan, the people will break Captain America... and then Omega Red will finish him off!

“WAR HEROES”
Staff Sergeant Nicolás Guerrero and his squad are pinned down by enemy fire near Mosul. He is part of Operation Inherent Resolve, tasked with eliminating ISIS in Iraq, and his current mission is to save seventy civilian hostages from the extremist terrorists. Yet now even retreating with his own life seems impossible. As he prepares to abandon hope, ordinance that would have killed him bounces off a red, white, and blue shield. Captain America is there, waving Guerrero’s squad forward, and promising that he’ll be with them “to the end of the line!” But can even Cap defeat an ISIS that is more ruthless - and with inexplicably more powerful weapons- than ever before?
Meanwhile, the Staff Sergeant’s younger brother Sebastián faces his own warzone: high school. His low-income neighborhood in the suburbs of New York City has been infiltrated by Los Arañas Delvadia, a viscous South American gang whose leader, the superhuman Tarantula, believes he is entitled to conscript all those with Delvadian blood. When they come for Sebastián, he asks himself what Captain America would do...

“WEB OF VENGEANCE”
Valerie Cooper is a powerful woman. She sits on the federal Commission on Superhuman Activities and is the director of the newly commissioned Office of National Emergency, a.k.a. O*N*E*, the agency tasked with containing and controlling “non-conventional” threats to the United States. Unlike S.H.I.E.L.D., the activities of O*N*E* are public. There’s accountability and transparency. And that’s how she got Captain America to work for her.
Currently Director Cooper is extremely concerned about advanced weapons the ISIS terrorists Steve defeated in Mosul had in their possession, believing them to be of alien design and to have originated in Sharzhad, a radical middle-eastern nation that seemingly sprung up overnight between Egypt and Libya. Unfortunately, she has to assign Agent Mockingbird to investigate that crisis; Captain America is otherwise occupied. Los Arañas Delvadia is a vicious South American gang with an increasingly violent domestic presence. That usually wouldn’t be O*N*E*’s jurisdiction, but they are led by a superhuman: Anton Miguel Rodriguez, better known as Tarantula, a super-soldier with spider-powers on top. His thugs killed the teen brother of a friend of Steve’s who refused their aggressive recruitment efforts, and Captain America absolutely will not stop until that young man has been avenged and the gang is eradicated in its entirety... which is going to bring him inevitably into a direct confrontation with the gang’s leader - and into the Tarantula’s web!

“THE GREAT SATAN”
Sharzhad: a new totalitarian nation on the Egypt-Libya border founded by Dagan Shah, a.k.a. the Sultan Magus. He was a Qatari separatist and radical Islamic extremist who discovered highly advanced extraterrestrial technology, centuries beyond anything the United States has, buried for who knows how long beneath the Great Sand Sea. Shah somehow... bonded with it, using his newfound power to establish a small country around the discovery site and to become a major destabilizing force in the region. The Sultan Magus is doubly dangerous, with technological might from the future and an ideology from the Middle Ages. The good news is that his powers and abilities are limited to a defined radius. The bad news is that within his borders he is essentially a god of Jihad. The worst news is that this intelligence was gathered and transmitted by O*N*E* agent Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse before she was captured by Sharzhad forces and imprisoned pending public execution for espionage and heresy. Can even Captain America pull off a rescue? He’s certainly going to try! And to do so he’ll team up with his ally in the region and Israel’s top super-soldier: Ruth Bat-Seraph, the incomparable Sabra!
Meanwhile, New York’s 7th Congressional District, which includes Steve’s Brooklyn Heights neighborhood, has a new representative. Yet little do her constituents know, Congresswoman Roja-Oñederra is the student of a shadowy mentor: the Soviet super-soldier Omega Red! He’s begun consolidating power, but what is this cold warrior’s endgame?

“NEW MODEL”

  • Guest-starring the Invincible Iron Man!*

Following his exploits in the Middle East, Steve Rogers appreciates the need to liberate the United States from its reliance on foreign oil... and he believes Tony Stark might be the man to do it! The genius billionaire playboy philanthropist is looking to change the world by manufacturing commercial vehicles fueled by low-yield versions of the same arc reactor that powers his famous suit of armor, and he intends to give the world a sneak peek at two prototypes: a sleek sedan called the “Tour Machine” and a rugged SUV known as the “Trailbuster” (names are still being workshopped in focus groups). Steve wants him to succeed, but the list of people who don’t is enormous: big oil, the automobile industry at large, and those foreign powers that hold America in their petroleum-filled grasp, just to name a few. So it’s unclear just who hired Donald Pierce and his cybernetic mercenaries, the Reavers, to crash Stark’s Pasadena press conference and destroy the prototypes. What is clear, however, is that Captain America isn’t going to let that happen! Perhaps unrelated, one of Stark’s top scientists abruptly resigns and falls off the grid in a pattern that mirrors recent disappearances of big brains from Roxxon, Horizon Labs, and the Rand Corporation. The only link? A cryptic question scrawled on notepads left on their desks: “Who is George Tarleton?”
Meanwhile, with Steve away from Brooklyn, Congresswoman Roja-Oñederra unilaterally appoints a new Captain America that better reflects her diverse constituency. Sally Floyd’s popular op-ed identified the perfect candidate: Miss America Chavez. She’s female, a lesbian, and being a Fuertona from the Utopian Parallel she’s not technically Hispanic but she’s close enough. Her vast array of powers and skills dwarf those of the mere peak-human Steve Rogers. And best of all, she has the righteous zeal and impressionable mind of a millennial. She’s the perfect choice... to be surreptitiously indoctrinated by the Soviet super soldier Omega Red!

“GENERATIONAL CONFLICT”
Congresswoman Roja-Oñederra continues to indoctrinate her newly hand-picked Captain America, the young America Chavez, in the philosophies of her secret master - the Soviet super-soldier Omega Red! Chavez readily absorbs messages about how the Soviet Union embraced racial and gender equality while the U.S. denied civil rights to women and minorities. Soon, she will be a true believer. But first, Omega Red demands a test...
A protest against Roja-Oñederra’s far-left policy proposals has sprung up in Brooklyn Heights and Chavez is tasked with silencing their “hate-speech” by any means necessary! Yet when the confrontation inevitably turns violent, the shield of Steve Rogers is there to defend the right to peacefully assemble! In this confrontation between Captain Americas, she says he’s no longer suited to wear the colors as a cis white male, a tool of the patriarchy, now defending “literal” nazis. He responds. “Ma’am, I’ve fought literal nazis... and these people aren’t them!” But mere peak-human Steve Rogers is dramatically outgunned in this fight by the flying, super-strong and hyper-fast Fuertonan from the Utopian Parallel. He’s got to find a way to deescalate the situation because, even if Chavez won’t act on “the will of the proletariat” and finish him... Omega Red will!
Meanwhile, Agent Mockingbird follows a lead on the mysterious George Tarleton who may be responsible for the disappearance of several geniuses from their respective big corporations. But when she encounters a high-tech soldier in yellow and black, will she discover that she’s been “A.I.M.ed” in the wrong direction?

“WAR OF WORDS”
After his defeat in Brooklyn Heights, Captain America finds himself captured and at the mercy of his greatest enemy - the Soviet super-soldier Omega Red! But the Russian once known as Arkady Rossovich isn’t satisfied with merely defeating the sentinel of liberty physically. He must break him intellectually. Philosophically. He yearns to hear Steve Rogers admit that the colors he wears represent nothing more than a hypocritical corporate oligarchy with a degenerate culture of neocolonialism and systemic exploitation. But Captain America will not yield to Omega Red, whom he sees as the perfect analogy for communism - a conscienceless killer who leeches life from others to survive, inevitably becoming morally and financially bankrupt in the process. This battle of wills will rage as the torturer promises to keep Rogers alive just long enough to witness what Omega Red and his protégés transform the United States into - and to see that the last capitalist they hang will be the one who sold them the rope...
Meanwhile, America Chavez recovers from her own defeat. Deceived by her would-be mentor Congresswoman Roja-Oñederra, Chavez was drained by Omega Red’s carbonadium tendrils - the act that empowered Red to defeat Cap in the first place. Stripped of most of her abilities save for modestly superhuman strength, speed, and endurance, Director Valerie Cooper gives Ms. America one last chance to redeem herself - help O*N*E* rescue Steve Rogers!
Elsewhere, Mockingbird discovers that the mysterious George Tarleton she was pursuing is an L.M.D. So where’s the real deal?
