In order to hide their disappearance, President Truman appointed Nasland to become the new Captain America and the young Fred Davis to become Bucky. They both served for the rest of the war with the Invaders, and after the war joined the All-Winners Squad.
In the summer of 1946, the All-Winners Squad learned that Adam II was planning to assassinate a congress member and replace him with an android. The team split up to learn who the target was; Nasland and Davis confronted Adam II as well as his robots who were preparing to replace JFK. Davis was knocked out and Nasland tried to alert the other heroes but was captured by one of Adam II's robots. Although he was mortally injured, he signaled the other heroes with a flare before dying from his wounds.
