1945: Captain America visits Gail Richards and they have sexy fun time. Four months later Cap is “dead” and the government convinces Gail that she should give her unborn baby up for adoption. Red Skull grows up in government custody; he’s genetically perfect because he naturally produces the super soldier serum. When he’s 17 years old he murders his way out of custody and cuts off his own face to spite his former handlers.
SYNOPSIS:
Cap realizes SHIELD won’t let him discover the truth about Red Skull, so he goes AWOL. After talking with Reed Richards about what AIM stole, Carol Danvers meets with Nick Fury to ask for help with the Red Skull mess. Meanwhile, Gail and Bucky are put into protective custody. Fury explains that Red Skull is a world class assassin that retired years ago, but came out of retirement for some reason. Meanwhile, Captain America researches Red Skull’s history. Later, Fury calls Tony Stark’s older brother for help.
