Marvel Re-imagined Origins: Captain America #1
INT. US Army Base
It’s January, 1943. Steven Rogers it training with James Buchanan Barnes, AKA Bucky.
Steven is blocking all of Bucky’s punches, with Bucky blocking all of Steven’s. They continue to block each other’s attacks, until Steven is able to take him down after he gets Bucky in an armbar.
Good job Bucky. You’re improving.
I know, and that’s great. But I hate being cooped up in here. I want an actual mission.
I understand. But be patient. We’ll get something soon.
Then, General Michael Sooth enters.
What do you know? You were right Steve. What do you have for us Sooth?
That’s General Sooth. I have something for you that could change the face of the war.
What is it general?
HYDRA. I have a tip that they have some sort of super weapon that could prove to defeat us.
What do we do? Find it and destroy it?
No. I want the two of you to pose as US traitors and join HYDRA. Discover what it is. Report back.
As you say.
INT. 8 hours later.
Steve and Bucky are on a plane to Germany.
We’re almost there. Once you get there, you two can drop out. Radio once you need me to pick you two up.
Steve, you’ve been quiet the entire ride. Are you okay?
I’m fine. I’m just thinking about what happens if we fail. They might be able to win the war.
That’s not gonna happen. We’ll win.
We’re in the landing zone. Drop down, and you can begin.
Bucky and Steve drop down, and end up just outside a battlefield.
Bucky, remember, we have to get HYDRA to trust us. So, we’ll have to do something that goes against everything we stand for. We have to betray our allies.
Steve takes out a grenade, and throws it at a group of US soldiers. Bucky fights off other soldiers, until HYDRA Agents finish them off.
Well done. But you don’t look like you’re from HYDRA or anyone in the Axis. What are you doing?
Simple. We want to be teamed with the future winners of the war.
Bring him to Red Skull. He will make the final decision.
They later bring him to HYDRA’s main headquarters to see Red Skull.
Sir, these two claim they want to join HYDRA.
Let them. They could be useful.
INT. Lunchroom. One week later.
Steve and Bucky are sitting down for lunch at the HYDRA base. Then, they are confronted by HYDRA Agents.
HYDRA AGENT 1:
So, Americans got to join HYDRA.
Yeah? So what?
HYADRA AGENT 2:
So you’re not one of us.
Look, the Red Skull trusts us. We’re in. It doesn’t matter what you think.
Won’t matter what Skull thinks if you’re to injured to fight in battle.
The HYDRA Agent takes out a knife and goes to attack Steve with it. Steve grabs a tray and blocks the knife with it. When another agent comes and tries to attack him, he grabs another tray and hits him over the head with the tray. He continues to use the tray to block attacks and use it as a weapon.
Then, Red Skull comes in.
Stop this mindless fighting. The rest of you, go back to your normal activities. Rogers, come with me.
The begin to walk down the hallway.
So, Skull, where are we going?
To change the face of the war.
Bucky is following them in the air vents.
They walk up to a machine at the end.
I was impressed with your skills in the lunchroom. That is why you will be the first super soldier that the Axis has.
Then, Skull takes out a gun and shoots Bucky in the air vents. This causes him to fall out and land on the floor. He then shoots Steve in the shoulder.
I knew you both were secretly working for the US. You are terrible liars.
While he is talking, HYDRA Agents hook Steve up to the machine.
But, you should be happy. You will now be the man that changes the face of the war. You will be the first super soldier.
I will never take orders from you!
You will. Begin!
Syringes begin to go into Steve’s arms, and the back of his head, both inserting something into him. He begins to scream in pain.
After 3 minutes, Steve is let out.
Now, we will test your skills. If you prove to be successful, we will make an army. We injected you with a serum that makes you obey me, along with the super soldier serum, Rogers. Now, you will be the first Captain Nazi!
