Comments: Conclusion of a two-part story. The neighborhood is awfully crowded for an area where police are fighting a rampaging monster; don’t they evacuate the streets in emergencies?


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Captain America #205 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
The Falcon is terrified by the sight of Agron, his dead human shell empowered and enlarged by the energy within. The fearsome creature uses mental energy to hurl the hero down the corridor, and then he moves through the SHIELD complex, shrugging off all weapon fire, finally crashing through a wall to freedom. Dr. Hartman sends all information on the menace to the police and their computers create visuals from Agron’s brain waves, revealing the creature’s origin. Agron is from Earth of the distant future, a being evolved into pure energy; sensing the imminent end of the world, he fled back in time to possess and reanimate a corpse in a 20th century mortuary, intending to conquer this world as his new home. Outside, the police and SHIELD SWAT team are no match for the powerful being on its rampage through the city. Steve Rogers is summoned at home and, suiting up as Captain America, he heads downtown to engage the enemy. Cap fights with Agron in the street, his blows all but useless and his efforts hampered by curious onlookers. Agron seizes the opportunity to grab the distracted hero and fling him into traffic. Cap manages to dodge many of the vehicles and the Falcon—his memory restored by his earlier encounter with the villain—swoops down a carries Cap to safety. A combined attack knocks Agron down but the sinister creature quickly recovers, lashing out with his deadly eye beams. SHIELD techs arrive with a huge containment tube. Cap and Falcon strike at Agron, driving him into a rage and causing his energy form to abandon the human shell. Falcon leads the monster into the tube and as he flies out the other end, the techs slam shut the doors, trapping Agron inside.
