Synopsis for “Disaster!”
Following his battle against the Mandarin and his creation, Ultimo, Tony Stark has returned to the States to find that his factories have been closed, his accounts frozen, and himself with a warrant for his arrest for refusing to appear before a Senate committee to reveal the secrets of the Iron Man armor. Hiding, in the dark street, Stark soon finds that his chest plate is almost out of power and that he needs to recharge it or risk his heart failing him once again.

Caught in a bind, Stark rushes to Pepper Potts’ apartment but finds that she isn’t there, just as his chest plates power runs dangerously low. Changing to Iron Man so that the built in power supplied could temporarily recharge his chest plate, Stark then seeks the aid of Happy Hogan to find that he isn’t home either. …

Synopsis for “The Red Skull Lives!”

One day Captain America sees a group of costumed soldiers on the street of New York and tries to stop them from getting away. Unfortunately for Cap, nobody sees them but himself and they manage to get away leaving the crowd to think that Cap has gone crazy. This is far from the truth, as it turns out that they are operatives of the Red Skull who were using a hypnotic device that makes them appear invisible to everyone but Captain America, in an attempt to turn the public against Cap.

The Red Skull recalls how he and his men were put in suspended animation by a gas that leaked into their bunker as it was destroyed during the final days of World War 2 and how they would later be revived by the scientists of AIM (formally known as “Them”) and that they plan to continue their attacks to make the public distrust Cap, and to make Cap question his own sanity. …
