CAPTAIN AMERICA'S LOVE Story!
* 1st Appearance "Mason Harding" and "Carol Harding"
Captain America, Falcon, and General Fist find the madbomb assembly plant at Royalist headquarters but the bomb has been moved elsewhere. Fist tells Cap that SHIELD agents have located electronics genius Mason Harding who vanished two years ago and may be the "madbomb" creator. Later, at an East Coast estate, Harding visits his daughter Carol who is recovering from a serious operation. Harding's thuggish guards hurry him out. An observing SHIELD agent reports in and is told that two men will take his place. Late that night, Cap infiltrates and comes upon Carol. The two talk and discover a mutual attraction, agreeing to meet the next day on the beach. When Carol arrives, Cap meets her as Steve Rogers, taking her for a horseback ride. Two trailing estate guards prepare to shoot them both but Falcon defeats them. Then, with Cap keeping Carol safe, Falcon and SHIELD raid the estate, capturing nearly all within. As Carol and Steve sit by a beach bonfire, four bullies harass them. Using his great strength, Steve scares them off, making Carol realize he is Captain America.
