Pepper and Happy are mourning Tony Stark's "death". Meanwhile, Stark builds a transistorized chest device that enables him to appear in public without his armor. Stark then leaves his lab, revealing that he is very much alive. This revelation causes Pepper to faint. Stark realizes that Happy loves Pepper. Stark then upsets an employee, Dr. Birch, by not making time to speak to him. Iron Man goes on to stop industrial saboteur the Phantom, who turns out to be an embittered Dr. Birch. Pepper and Happy go on a date. Tony is left alone to brood because he secretly loves Pepper too.; While the Nazi war machine marches on, President Roosevelt institutes a top-secret program, "Project Rebirth." In a secret lab, scientist Dr. Erskine gives army 4F reject and volunteer Steve Rogers the "Super-soldier serum," which turns him into a virtual superman. But a Nazi spy who got past security murders Erskine before he can create an army of men like Rogers, and is killed when he runs headlong into some electrical machinery. Rogers becomes the costumed Captain America, as a symbol of freedom, and begins a career of smashing spy rings and the like. A short time later, he also goes undercover as a buck private at Camp Lehigh, the target of mean-tempered Sgt. Duffy, and the friend of orphan mascot Bucky Barnes. When Bucky discovers Steve's double-identity, he becomes Cap's partner. In their first adventure together, they stop a squad of Nazis saboteurs and take out a German sub while they're at it.
