This time around Sgt. Nick Fury and the Howling Commandos steal the spotlight as they bring their seven-man American blitzkrieg right to the Nazis’ front door! These soldiers do their best work behind enemy lines against the most insane odds. These are the stories of the Howling Commandos. WAH-HOOO!
Introducing the legendary Nick Fury and Dum Dum Dugan, along with the rest of the hallowed Howling Commandos! The crew needs to rescue a Nazi prisoner who knows the time and location of the D-Day invasion; if he cracks and spills his guts the war might very well be over. Luckily Fury and the Commandos have a plan to get him out: cut down every Nazi between them and their man!
The Nazi war machine appears to be gearing up for a megalithic operation and that can only mean bad news for the Allies. Even with America’s star soldier, the super powered Captain America, and his teenage sidekick, Bucky, on the case the situation looks grim, so Cap calls for reinforcements and he wants the Howlers! Watch as the Star-Spangled Avenger and Sgt. Fury and his squad team-up for the very first time to the chagrin of Nazi soldiers everywhere.
The Howling Commandos find themselves once again brothers-in-arms in a very different war zone: Korea. Tasked with destroying a Korean air base defying U.N. protocols, Fury and the boys roll out with explosives galore ready to light some fireworks right under those no-good Commies’ noses. But in wartime nothing ever goes according to plan as the Sarge and his soldiers quickly find themselves fighting for their lives against an entire base armed to the teeth and ready to fill the Howlers with holes. Will the gang take out the base, or will the base take them out?
In an effort to stop the latest Nazi stratagem, Captain America and the Howling Commandos find themselves in the wild jungles of Wakanda. They expect to find simple tribal natives but instead discover a nation far more advanced than even the United States! Now, unless Captain America and Wakanda’s divine protector, The Black Panther, can come to some sort of understanding, the Nazis, Cap, and the Howling Commandos might never leave those dark jungles alive!
The U.N. Security Council wants to have a chat with Dum Dum Dugan about the current whereabouts of Nick Fury and the rest of the Howling Commandos. Seems a ruthlessly efficient team of what appeared to be highly trained mercenaries sporting stolen H.A.M.M.E.R. helicarriers hit some HYDRA bases. Hard. Could this possibly have something to do with the recent reunion of the Howling Commandos? And what really happened between those hard-hitting Howlers and HYDRA? Read on to find out!
