"O'er the Ramparts We Watched"
The Falcon has an encounter with an individual who is a dead ringer for Nighthawk, whom Falc knows to be dead. The individual is hostile, and makes his escape.
Later, in Cap's base, he plans his assault on A.I.M. Island with Peggy Carter and Valentina de La Fontaine. Across town, Bernie Rosenthal tries to help former neighbor Mike Farrel, aka Super-Patriot, who still holds a grudge against Cap.
Little does she realize that Mike is in league with the individual who impersonated Nighthawk, a shape-shifter, who plans to kill Cap and steal his identity.
Cap meets with the Falcon, and gets him to sign up to the assault on A.I.M. Island, when the distress call comes in from Bernie. Elsewhere, Diamondback gets Superia to invent a cure to the disease which plagues Steve Rogers.
- Note: the appearances of Nighthawk and Death-Stalker are a shape-shifter, not the actual characters.
- Death of Mike Farrel, Super-Patriot.
