Synopsis for "The Deadly Gauntlet"Edit

  • Synopsis not yet written.


  • In this issue, the Red Skull tries to manipulate Captain America to kill Nick Fury (whose body has been inhabited by the Red Skull). This is probably the first attempt by the Red Skull to destroy Captain America as a symbol and legendary figure. The Skull realizes merely killing Captain America will only cause him to be a "martyr" and perhaps even more of a symbol to the American people. This theme has continued into future Captain America conflicts such as Civil War.
  • This issue does not contain a letters page. In its place is a one page advertisement for Invaders.
  • This issue is reprinted in comics and books, see references for info.[1]
